Pipe Dreams

Goals (Pipe Dreams?):

  • Get my book published
  • Find a job (actually, that ought to be first)
  • Hell, find a fantabulous job that I will love and that has great benefits, on site daycare, and liberal vacation
  • Finish my Teresa Wentzler “Fantasy Triptych
  • Quit feeling depressed
  • Create some snazzy diaryrings
  • Go to the British Isles!
  • See a Shakespeare play, preferably my favorite, Othello or my second favorite King Lear, at the New Globe Theatre in London
  • Decorate my house in medieval accents (I love Design Toscano)
  • Get more involved in the SCA, and finally get my AoA
  • Research my and my husband’s genealogy (I’ve already done a great deal of mine)
  • Make something out of cross stitch for my mother-in-law
  • Hell, make something out of cross stitch for my husband
  • Get some poetry published

  • Hell, own a castle in Scotland, Wales, or Ireland — or even England
  • Make perfect scented candles for my new house
  • Stop coughing
  • Be a better wife and mother
  • Grow an herb garden so I can make my own comfrey ointment, among other remedies
  • Find out exactly what herbs Carrabba’s uses with its bread and olive oil and grow them in my herb garden so I can have that treat whenever I want it
  • Write another book
  • Learn archery
  • Read more
  • Make some really good friends — not just work acquaintances
  • Give my husband a son
  • Go to my next high school reunion a successful writer
  • Stop hurting Husband with my diary
  • Go to Pennsic at least once
  • Be a better housekeeper – even (strangle me now) an enthusiastic one
  • Have enough money to hire a maid who will be an enthusiastic housekeeper for me
  • Make my family proud of me
  • Make some beautiful SCA garb
  • Get a part time job as a minstrel at the Renaissance Festival

I’m sure I’ll think of more some time. Watch this diary for more dreaming.
