You've got write/righting on the brain, dearest. I could be your editor (well proofreader might be more accurate but this is pipe dreaming) but I don't have any money to pay you. Back to the lamp rubbing.

LMAO, so I do. Fail for me. I promise I don't submit actual work without proofreading first. I'm not having a good day. blush.gif

stop biting my nails/skin round my fingers. I keep hoping the grown up fairy will come along and I'll just stop and look like a properly groomed woman...

If I can have 2, then patience would be good...

I do that too CC. And to top it off, I trim my nails with scissors.

I feel really intimidated by women with manicured paws.

I'm another greedy one, so can I have two?
Normal fertility to have another baby would be great, but I'd be ok if it took just another IUI cycle.
I don't want 100mill, but another 30 grand a year would mean we could actually DO stuff to the house rather than just pay it off and replace things that explode.

I think if we had those 2 things, life would be fine and dandy (not that it's terrible now)

I thought of one but then ended up being 3-4.
• less anxiety/stress
• thicker hair (I have fine hair and would love volume)
• able to handle long flights (I would have seen the world by now)
• perfect skin (somewhat acne prone but the clarisonic is working a treat)

If I could have only one thing... hmm - perfect skin - eczema gone, no breakouts, no more scarring from eczema, no more skin cracking open and infections, no more need of cortizone.

But as a back up - My jaw repaired - no more pain, no more crunching, bone all nice and solid, no more implant and the teeth that had to be removed with the lump - can I have those back?

I can live with the less than perfect body, face & mind wink.gif But to be pain and injury free... that would be lovely.
