Things I Wish......

I wish I cared about plants and gardening.

I wish I knew something about interior decorating. Or interior design. Hell, I wish I knew the difference between those two.

I wish I saw more movies, so I would at least know who folks are talking about when they discuss movie stars.

I will always wish I had straight hair.

I wish I were closer to my cousins. Thanks, Grandmother, for alienating all of us from each other.

I wish I could watch sporting events without becoming so emotionally involved.

I wish we had known Sweet Girl would be moving out when we let her get TWO cats. (Ahem)

I wish I had become interested in cycling when I was in college, instead of majoring in drinking and smoking (cigarettes only, thank you). Riding to class instead of fighting for a parking space or standing space on a campus bus would have been sweet. Not so much riding back UP Baxter Street to my apartment.

I wish when I decided to go to Wal-Mart after Zumba class tonight that I had taken a form of payment with me.

I wish I had already made my lunch for tomorrow.

I wish Dan Uggla would start hitting like he did when he played AGAINST us.

I wish I were interested in antiques.

When I came home from a party and my mother asked why I had been drinking, I wish I hadn't answered, "Would you believe because I was thirsty?"

I wish I hadn't spent all that money on a wedding all those years ago. Was it really necessary to have TWO DOZEN yellow roses in my bouquet?

I wish Tampa Bay were in the National League. Unless I'm way off the mark regarding the MLB draft.

I wish I could curl my tongue. I'm pretty sure I could do it when I was young. It's supposed to be genetic, and Sweet Girl can do it.

I wish I could remember what I was about to type here.

My college degree is in Interior Design and Housing. It covers the whole shebang, designing the space and decorating the space. I hated the decorating part. In my opinion, decoration is a matter of personal taste. I couldn't imagine why someone would need to pay someone else to tell them how to decorate their house. I preferred the design part....drawing up houseplans, etc. Of course that was back in the days of drafting tables, T-squares, etc. Now it's all CAD. At least my alma mater (UT-Knoxville) moved the department to the school of architecture. When I was there it was still in Home-Ec.
