- When the clocks fall back, I actually will get an extra hours sleep.
- When I stumble out of bed I will not trip on toys on the way to the kitchen.
- I will get to use the bathroom all by myself. When I take a shower it will not be to the soundtrack of a toddler wailing and pounding at the door.
- When I get ready for church on a Sunday morning it will only be my hair I have to wash, my teeth I have to brush, my clothes I have to iron, my shoes I have to find.
- My van will not smell like sour milk. Or be littered with cheerios and goldfish and Happy Meal toys. In fact, someday my van might not even be a van. It might be something infinitely cooler. Like a car.
- When I mop the kitchen floor I will not have to mop it again fifteen minutes later. And then again in an hour.
- My living room will not look like a romper room.
- There will be no more arguments left to referee or time-outs to enforce or groundings to police.
- I will walk through the grocery store again leisurely. Comparing prices on fruit and never once uttering the words "Stop hitting your brother" or "No, you CAN NOT HAVE THAT."
- Not a single room in my house will smell like a diaper pail.
- I will be able to eat an entire meal without getting up to retrieve a fork, clean a spill, or cut someone's food.
- I will not have a calendar hanging on my pantry door with multiple entries for every day of the week.
- I will only have to run the dishwasher once a day.
- I will only have to sort two sets of socks.
- I have plenty of time to write on this blog.

Gratitude - Day 2 (Someday...)
