W is for Wants

There are so many things to want these days. A bigger house. A bigger kitchen. A bigger car. A bigger family.

Or a smaller waistline, a smaller computer, a smaller ipod, a smaller college debt.

Lots and lots of wants.

Right in time for the big Christmas. And everyone is out there wanting and buying things that other people want or maybe they really don't want.

I was out driving in my car today in the rain and cold and I noticed all these cars getting stuff they may or may not need, but probably want for Christmas. And I was one of them.

I was buying stuff at Ikea that filled some kind of want that I had. And boy do they have a lot of stuff that you want when you see it.

Tis the season to want.

I've noticed something about shopping lately. Mostly because it happens pretty infrequently. There more you do it, the more you see what's out there and the more things you think of wanting enter your brain. You can't want something you don't know about.

That's why I stay holed up with the children most days. So I don't even know what's out there. Because once I do, it's like that want monster just creeps right on in.

Davy just wants a barbie. And Gianna just wants her thumb and some hair to dreadlock.
I hope the want monster stays away from you and yours this Christmas. I think we are done for over here. I guess there is always hope...

    "The want monster." It can be an ugly monster, can't it? Hahaha. :)
