A shorter evening commute. Must not involve the American Legion Memorial Bridge, since accidents before and after it contribute to at least a 25 minute delay every single evening, according to Google Maps. Preferably does not involve the Capital Beltway at all, in any direction, for any amount of time, but a little bit of Beltway is fine. Open to ferries and other mythical bridges crossing the Potomac. Also open to flying and teleportation.

A larger apartment. Must be two bedrooms, right next to 495, and the same price as current one bedroom apartment 4.6 miles north of 495. Living room must be able to fit couch, love seat, large bean bag chair, and unstable papasan that will topple if you aren’t careful. Kitchen must have at least 30 square feet of functional counter space to account for cooking habits and myriad utensils/appliances, or 10 square feet of functional counter space and ample cabinet/drawer space. Hardwood preferable, since the dog can’t stain that. Deck space not important, as our plants just die anyway.



Maid to clean current/sought apartment. Must be free.



Another candidate for President. Must not be named Gary, Jill, or Mickey Mouse.



Personal trainer. Must be okay with my potato consumption and preference for Restorative yoga classes over Vinyasa. Must also be free, or come at the price of delicious, freshly baked cookies every week.



New car to replace husband’s 15 year old money pit. Must, of course, be free. In addition to offering car for free, dealer must also treat me like a human being and allow me to sit in the front seat instead of pushing me to the backseat while husband test drives. Must also not refer to me as “the wife.” In other words, dealer must not be a sexist pig. Also, car must be a Tesla.



Jesus to come back before the election. Please.



Good pizza in the DC Metro area. Might not exist. Holler if it does.



A better morning routine. Must include a healthy breakfast and time spent reading Bible and writing in journal. Must also include snuggles with doggy and husband, and maybe some time playing Goldeneye on N64.



To know life is amazing. To enjoy evening commute with music or audio books. To make do with small apartment to save more aggressively for car and future house. To make best of time in morning before morning commute, which is actually quite pleasant. To understand God cares about quality over quantity.



To stop seeking, and just see.

    Loved everything about this! And if you do have access to his direct line, please do get Jesus back here
    before the election.

    I adore this just as much now as I did when you first sent it. 🙂

    “To stop seeking, and just see.” YES!
