A Simple Wish...

My biggest wish, since becoming a mom, is relatively simple.  I have asked for it for my birthday, Christmas  and even Mothers Day for at least three years.  As each occasion passed without my wish granted, (sing with me) I kept on wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' that one day it would be mine!

But, just over a month ago I decided to take things into my own hands!  I realized that my one wish, did not need to be a gift - no, perhaps, with a little bit of money, I could make it happen. 

The only big obstacle...the green stuff, dinero, buckeronies, cha-ching.  And last I checked, SAHMs do not rake in the cash.  A dilemma, certainly, but overcome-able...Right? 

I considered getting a job - but I really enjoy being a SAHM and the whole childcare cost doesn't really lend its self to a part-time gig.  I also considered monetizing my blog - but I don't have many followers so that seemed unrealistic.  Then there's the street corner - but it's not really my thing, and there's that whole I-could-be-arrested factor, so that was out.  And, while I am still planning to write a book, I am guessing that a publisher is not willing to shell out an advance to an unknown, unpublished, wanna-be-author.  And since I want my wish to become a reality, sooner rather than later, that won't work either. day, while doing some important SAHM mom stuff (going through two, five foot high piles of preschool artwork, worksheets, and scribbled papers), I came up with a harebrained idea.  And, the more I thought about it, the more, I thought that maybe...possibly...perhaps...if I can make this crazy-idea work, then maybe...possibly...perhaps...I can make a few bucks. 

Plus, and even more important, I am so stinkin' excited about this lunatic idea that regardless of whether or not my wish comes true, I am determined to it see through!

So, while I am crossing my fingers for my simple I-want-a-cleaning-lady (or man - I wouldn't want to be sexist) wish to become a reality...

I am jumping up-and-down in anticipation, exhilaration, and excitement about sharing what my idea has developed into!

But...I can't, just yet.
