Birthday Wishes

For my birthday I would like some time. If anyone knows of a place where I can buy, trade, or bargain for some extra time, please let me know. This is what I would like to do with my extra time:

Create fun, educational activities for Nathan and I to enjoy when I am home with him
Cook every weeknight
Go to the gym every day
Write real, hand-written notes and mail them to friends
Clean and organize my garage
Document all of my plant-life like Rachel.
Volunteer more
Organize all of my pictures into digital photo books (or maybe digital scrapbooks)
Read the Bible from beginning to end again
Take calligraphy classes
Create my own cookbook (with my own photography and recipes)
Go on a weekly (or even monthly) date with BSC sans The Boy
Redecorate my living room and bedroom (this also requires extra money, so if you know where I could get some of that too, please let me know)
Read two books per month
Go see all the tourist attractions here

I will be waiting for suggestions of where I can find all this time. Anyone?

Great wish list...sounds a lot like mine. I wish we had time to do all the things we want to do.

You are so creative with what you'd like to do. If I could buy some time I think I would just drive around because I could and I wouldn't have to worry about my screaming baby in the background. And if I wanted to stop at Target I could without lugging a car seat or pushing a shopping cart. And - I could go in to a convenient store for a fountain soda (one of my favorite things) without hauling the car seat with me for the 2 second stop and I would maybe listen to rap music because I wouldn't worry about the bad words becoming part of Sara's ever so limited vocabulary and I might even go see a movie even though there really isn't one I'm dying to see, but just because.

Can you tell I'm having a particularly difficult day? :)

I kept hoping that you'd blog about your ring and how it wasn't really lost that BSC took it and did something fancy with it for your birthday. Nothing yet?? Sad. I have a present for you. I just haven't mailed it. I suck like that, but you know me so....

Happy belated birthday, Lori!

Good luck with finding extra time, if you do come across a good resource for that, let me know so I can get some extra time, too!
