Things I need or want...

First, Idol voting closes today. There are only 20 contestants left in the poll, and lots of good things to read! I'm hoping my entry is one of the ones you like. And maybe you'll be inspired to try it out yourself in an upcoming season?

This weekend, I was at Target and drifted into the luggage section. Why—WHY—do I not have a child of appropriate age who wants and needs a Minion-themed rolling suitcase?? There's also this one, which is ridiculously cute and really expensive, but I prefer softsided suitcases—especially those with pockets. Lots of pockets to sort things!

As you can imagine, what I really hate are duffel bags that have a single container where you just throw everything in. Try finding your toothbrush later in THAT!

I also want fresh chocolate-chip cookies right about now, but I pretty much always want that. Yet somehow, at my office full of engineers, those are not just lying around for the taking. :(

Oh, Monday. Why are you always so "Monday"?
