i'd have to go with janet. someone to do all the housework every day for the rest of my life. then i could play, sewing, reading, crafts and cooking when i feel like it. if i had money, this would not be an impossible want.

Now THAT'S a concept I can wrap my brain around~!!!! Only if the sheets came off the line outside.

Now...my want here is to have those sheets put on my bed EVERY night. Omigosh, I'd feel so pampered.
What a flashback you gave me. When my eldest son was first born i lived with my folks. I was determined that his birth would not cause my Mom any more work that was absolutely necessary so every day i did our laundry but there were never enough whites for a full load so each day i washed the sheets. I do remember how nice it felt to fall asleep in clean sheets each night, kind of like spending the night in a hotel with your own bed and pillows. I almost miss that time of my life, but not enough to relive it or to wash sheets every day!

A new bathroom with two sinks, a shower/bathtub/jacuzi combo, and a big mirror.

We are squinched into a tiny space, this would mean breaking into the garage.

Something that was extremely beautiful and decorative but that could also provide the hubby and I with items for the dinner table. I'd also love an old, square rigged sailing ship. I know, I'm a little weird, but I just think they would be so cool to have.
That is called an Atrium...they do make them and they are not weird. The one I saw had a guacamole garden...even the Avocado tree.

And as much fun and fanciful some of these wants are...I still want a trampoline.

You usually start with a practice chanter, it's a bit like a flute and not louder - great for practising the fingers... and no problem playing indoors..

with the pipes there are different one, what most people know as "the bagpipe" is the Scottish Great Highland Pipe, and YES, it kicks out your brain when played indoors.
But there are wallpipes, Border Pipes and the smallpipes.. and these ones are in a pleasant volume, easy to play at home in a session with flutes, whistles or what ever..

so you see, the loudness is not a reason not to play the pipes..

ah.. and what else to mention.. I'm not learning the highland style to play, but I practice with the german shepherds pipe. sounds a bit different, but also great..

that's my teacher with his small pipe playing at a medival festival:
