My Biggest Wish

Hello! We had my family dinner after church today. Roast beef and mashed potatoes and brownie pudding cake for dessert. YUM! My grandma that lives close came, and so did Matt and Katie and Mrs. Martha and Mr. Leon. Matt and Katie I've talked about before. They spent the weekend with us when their parents went on a vacation type thing.

Today was so much fun. The parents went to look at our new house in the afternoon, so we kids were left home alone (cue scary music :D). We played outside mostly. Matt found lots of nasty stuff to threaten to throw at us, and we played around doing all kinds of crazy things.

I really do wish we had a bigger family. I try not to go on and on about it like I did when I was little, 'cause I began to realize how much it bothered my parents, but I still really wish that. Having four kids would have been awesome. I love Lizzy to death, but I wish there were more. :( Especially an older brother. I know that's cheesy and, to some of you who have heard me gripe over the years, a worn-out complaint, but it's so very true. If I had one wish, it would be a three-way tie between perfect health, my books to have the power to come alive (mwahahaha :D), and an older brother. *sigh* I guess it's a little too late now, huh? Lol! :) Guess what my wish was when I blew out my candles?

Seriously, though, today was awesome. I'll definitely be treasuring it forever. Hope everyone else had a great day, too! And seriously, carpe diem. It's the only "today" you'll ever get.

I live with my mom, but I go to my grandparents' a lot, and there's a lot of people there: 3 houses together, all from my family ^_^
I don't actually "carpe diem" a lot, but I know I should

Awesome! Do you like it when you have a lot of family around?

Yeah, I TRY to carpe diem, but I'm very bad at it. I named the blog that because I do need to work on it. I have a bad habit of living in the past. I miss what's happening RIGHT NOW because I was thinking about how great the "good old days" were. And then I regret it. *sigh* Lol! But I think I'm getting better at it.

yeah, I do =)
^_^ I just... seem to not make the best of the time. I don't know if you ever got that feeling

Yes, I've had that feeling. Some days I go to bed thinking I've just totally wasted 24 hours that probably could have been really great. Or I get a chance and I don't take it or something.
