-A bigger house (I know I've written about that many times before)
-A dog. We want a dog. Can't have one in this house.
-A cat. Same story. Can't have one in this house (we're renters, no room for a litter box, etc). Micah says he wants a "baby white kitty" numerous times every week. His heart beats after mine!
-Moving Jaden into a toddler bed. We could do it now, but I think it's still a few months away. I do like being able to put him in the crib and know he can't get out for a few minutes every day. (I hope that doesn't come out wrong). Once we put him in a bed, we know we may have many interrupted nights coming our way.
-Getting Jaden out of diapers. I do love his little, tender age, but diapers are expensive! And Micah waited until he was 3 1/2 to be fully potty-trained. I don't think I can do that again!
-A foster child. This one has been tugging at my heart for months now. I can't stop thinking about it. But we cannot have one in this house, and I know right now is not the right time.
-A job for me. I really want to get back to working part-time in a ministry setting, yet again, I know this is not the right time. I know I am supposed to stay home with my boys right now at this stage in their lives. But sometimes I see opportunities and feel like they're passing me by.
-Student loans paid off. We've been making constant payments for over 10 years now. These things are not going away! So frustrating.
I could go on and on, but I don't want to bore you with all the details. I hope that some things change in 2009. It would be REALLY great.
