I Have a Dream…With a Twist

I have a dream that one day I will lose the eight pounds I try to lose every year and never gain back that weight again.
I have a dream that my kids will make themselves breakfast in the morning, pack their own lunches, feed my cat and clean the cat litter – and all I need to do is give them hugs and kisses and send them off to school.
I have a dream that I won’t be spammed 10 times a day by someone wanting me to give them my social security number so they can deposit 100 million dollars in unmarked bills into my bank account – then again – I have a dream that scam were really true.
I have a dream that I will actually get to sleep eight hours straight without thinking of all the things I have to get done the next day.
I have a dream that one day, I will open my mailbox to find lots of checks and no bills.
I have a dream that my kids won’t jockey to get on my computer the moment I sit down to think of a blog post that’ll make someone wet their pants.
I have a dream that one day, when my kids are in college, my DH and I will move back into my old apartment building on 72nd Street and Central Park West.
I have a dream that tomorrow, when Barack Obama is sworn into office, he’ll figure out a way to stop people from losing jobs, put an end to terrorism, instill hope for a brighter tomorrow and declare a permanent 75% off sale at Ann Taylor Loft. A girl’s gotta dream doesn’t she?
