Anyways, now that I have gone off of my original train of thought I will go back to the beginning...it has become clear to me that the things that make me incredibly happy now are the things that I enjoyed most as a child. As I mentioned, I was never very imaginative, and I'm still not, but I used to think that that meant I was not creative, and that because I cannot draw a stick person to save my soul, I am not artistic...I was wrong! (This may be the only time I will ever admit that...). I love coming home from a long day at work at sitting down with my pliers or my paintbrush. I bought a sketchbook to carry around with me for when inspiration struck, but as I mentioned...drawing is not my forte!
As a continuation of this though, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about Easy Bake Ovens. I never had one as a kid, but I desperately wanted one and did not understand why I couldn't have one. Believe you me, I was the furthest thing from being hard-done by...my brother and I had some pretty awesome “stuff”, and an extremely awesome family. The four of us were, and still are, quite close- to the point where my friends always thought we were completely weird for being so open with one another. I digress- my mind keeps coming back to that Easy Bake Oven these days, despite the fact that I am now grown and own my own full-size oven. I think we all had one toy, or one thing, that we always wanted but never got...what was yours? I'm sure you're thinking, “Why don't you just go buy the Easy Bake Oven if you're still so obsessed with it?”, and I have been giving that a lot of thought...but...Christmas is just around the corner...! Maybe this will be my year?
