Magical Mondays: Boob Wishes Strike Again!

(Yes, it's Sunday right now, but I might not have time tomorrow.)

For those of you who aren't familiar with "boob wishes", it's when you write down three things you'd like to have happen in a month, and keep it in your bra... or pants pocket, or wherever. :)

About a month ago, I was just daydreaming of a few things I'd like to have happen and wrote just two of them down. One: I'd like to be able to work part-time, and two: I'd like for my novella to be a best seller at Cobblestone Press, even though I didn't really expect either of those things to happen. I just put that in my purse and forgot about it.

Well, about a week ago, I was having a rough day at work and wishing the timing was right for me to ask my boss about taking off one day a week. It's a really busy time for us right now, and I figured the timing was bad to ask. But about an hour later, she asked me to come to her office and said she had good news for me. See, one of the things I HATE about my job, is that somehow I got stuck doing the class registrations and other admin work after the woman who used to do it had to quit. It was never part of my job description, and daily made me want to jab sharpened pencils into my ears.

My boss said she'd spoken to her boss about the possibility of hiring someone to take over that aspect of things, since it really wasn't something I should be doing and would take a lot off my plate. It was the perfect opening to bring up the part-time goal. She was very open to it, though she did say it probably wouldn't happen until after June. Hey, as long as there's a light at the end of the tunnel, I can wait a couple more months. :)

And as for the second wish, as you can see from this post, I was just as surprised as anybody. :)

Now I wish I'd written down a third thing, lol. Maybe next month... :)

Any good news in your life lately that you'd like to share?


  1. Excellent! Fabulous news. I stopped writing my goals when they didn't work out. Maybe I'll start again. This time instead of putting them in my bra I'll put them in my purse.

    Otherwise, no good right now. No bad news either.

  2. Fantastic, Kate. My boob wishes took about a year to come true for me, and so far I've gotten two out of three (three won't be possible anyway until my first book is published next year). But I'll take those two out of three with a happy, happy heart!

  3. EDIE: Bra, purse, pocket, shoe - it's all good. :)

    Actually, the thing I've noticed is that if I write it and forget it, things seem to happen sooner than when I write it and obsess over it. I had actually forgotten about those two until the first one happened, then I remembered.

    And hey, no bad news is good news! :)

    MICHELLE: Thanks. I'm so happy for you about your books. Fingers crossed for next year. :)

  4. Congrats on the possible changes. That's cool! I never heard of boob wishes. I'll have to give that a shot.
    As for good news; SPRING IS SPRINGING!

  5. Sounds good then. I have so many things I could say about boob wishes. But I'll just say I'm glad Lana came true.

  6. I try things like that and the "be careful what you wish for" clause automatically kicks in.

    No good news here--but no bad, so I'm happy. I'll just bask in the reflected glory of your wishes.

  7. Well, I didn't wish on any boobs but so far this month it's all good things.

  8. LANA & CHARLES: Maybe you guys could double-up on the boob wishes. Get a two-for one deal. ;)

    AVERY: It's all about clean living and pure thoughts. ;) And if you believe that...

    TRAVIS: I'm glad things are going well for you. :)


Say what you will...
