    A plowed driveway by the time I need to leave/arrive at the house in winter.

    A weeded garden in summer.

    Unrealistically... enough money that I didn't have to worry and could afford my own, small (1000-1200 sqft) house with a garage and a little garden and new things instead of old, "preowned" housewares and clothes.

    Realistically... a hot water heater than could always supply hot water.

    Well, okay, I live in an apartment so that's still not realistic either. How about a place where rent doesn't increase by $30-50/month every year without having to go back to a place where my neighbors got in fights in the hallway. Seriously, though, I'd love hot water that I could have and use whenever I wanted.

    A housekeeper to take care of all the domestic stuff, leaving me time to attend to my dream farm.

    All that is needed to be off grid and self-sustaining.

    Right now I would be happy for someone to come in and de-clutter and clean my house top to bottom just once.

    That's called Amazon Prime. Totally worth it, and delivers almost anything in 2 days or less with no shipping charge.

    The one and only luxury I could wish for is to have my husband back. Anything else in this life would just be icing.

    Another horse. Working on it, but he'll have huge shoes to fill if/when I do.

    Assuming that I had my health and lots of money, after buying a farm, I'd buy a lot of expensive TB mares. For riding, not for breeding.

    An outdoor private hot tub with a view of the sky, preferably draining into an inground pool, and a deep-tissue masseuse who comes at least once daily. At least I'd be happy and loose when I confronted the rest of life's issues!!!

    A washing machine and dryer on my second floor. Or maybe no second floor.

    Aww, Minnie....hugs. I cannot even imagine that and would surely feel the same.

    Just ONE?

    A 200' x 200' indoor arena would be my number one.

    A housekeeper who grocery shops, cleans and does laundry.
    A personal chef
    My own farm complete with indoor and outdoor riding arenas, trails, crops, an orchard, farm equipment and sexy farmhands.

    I don't need anyTHING - got most of what I need, although an upgrade or two would be nice.

    What I really want I cannot have, so that sucks.

    I'm sorry Minnie. I'd like my mom to have her health back and be able to walk and play golf and visit again. But I don't think that will happen.

    For something silly? A beefy, smart stablehand that can do the books too.

    A huge, well-lit indoor with really nice footing.

    Totally new top of the line fencing on the whole farm to my redesign of the pastures, including a perimeter fence with lovely auto gate that never breaks. In Heaven, all fences will self-weed-eat.
