There are a lot of things I don't miss. Like...
My noisy upstairs AND downstairs neighbors.
Living off of a student's income.
Living in the snow.
Worrying about dating.
The stress that being a manager at Panera Bread brings.
Waking up at 4:00AM to go to work.
My job at Convergys. Yuck.
Working fast food.
Living paycheck to paycheck.
Having more than one car payment. (I would like a second vehicle though)
Worrying about the way I talk, walk, dress, and look just because of some boy or girl from school.
Being in school. I love that I will never have to write another paper.
Being a server.
Having a real a-hole as a boss.
Living in Vallejo. That was just scary.
And I'm sure there are many more things that I'm just not thinking of right now.
I DO miss a lot of things as well. Like...
Being able to eat whatever I want whenever I want without having to check my blood sugar and take insulin. If someone could hurry up and cure type 1 diabetes, that would be awesome.
Having only 1 pet.
Not saying every fourth sentence, "Need to go boom boom Roxy?"
My friends from high school.
The care free attitude I had in high school.
Being as thin as I was in high school. I still can't believe I ever thought I was fat. I should be shot for that.
My wedding day. I loved that day.
Snuggle time with my cat. She is a lot more distant now that we have the dog.
My Equinox. Dang you for not being fuel efficient.
Living close to my mom.
Friday nights with all of the Hardy family.
Going to the movies. I really want to go to the movies.
Cupcakes. It's been forever since I've eaten one and I really want one. A strawberry one with strawberry frosting.
My Opa. I know I already said family but when I went to my Oma's 90th birthday party it made me really miss him. I'm glad I believe that I will see him again someday. It brings me comfort.
So, these are all really nice things that I miss. But you know what I really miss? I mean REALLY miss?
HAVING A DISHWASHER.
When we moved into our new house I knew we would not have a dishwasher and I was semi ok with it. We got these really cool things from Ikea that made hand washing look more appealing but it still sucks. I just want a dishwasher. I'm ok with a portable one. I would just have it sit next to my stove and role it over to the sink when I'm ready for it. I promise to feed it and clean up after it. I will pet it and let it know it's loved. *sigh* Maybe I'll get one for my birthday.
