For Michelle.  Who requested it. The extended edition featuring deleted scenes. Hope this is what you were looking for!


"I don't want this anymore.

I want to wake up in the morning and help my kids get off to school.  I want to watch Good Morning America and take the dog on a walk, clean the house, do the laundry, make a million phone calls.  I want to call my mom in the middle of the day to chat just because I can.  I want to decide on dinner and bake things in the afternoon so the house smells delicious when people get home.  I want to be there when my other half walks through the door.  I want to sit down and have dinner with my family and talk to my kids.  Even when they're surly teenagers.  Because they'll be MY surly teenagers.  And at night when the kids have gone to bed, I want to curl up on the couch and snuggle with the love of my life.  And I want to sigh because even though it's difficult, life is so impossibly wonderful.

That's what I want.  Not this.  Not anymore."


  1. all i want is to be married with a puppy.

    1. You and me both. The only thing I know about my five-year plan is that it includes a dog.

  2. I still love this! I honestly wish I could have recorded you saying it so I would never forget the feeling and intonation that were behind the words, making them that much better. You are awesome! Maybe Prince Charming is waiting in Seattle...or he'll come find you there :)

  3. Prince charming? Nah. I'd rather have someone real. Real is way more interesting :)

  4. I will take a puppy and some stay-at-home-mom-ness, too, please.
