Almost every Broadway musical has what is known as an “I Want” song– that big moment when the main character belts out their deepest heart’s desire. Elphaba wants to be degreenified by the Wizard. Audrey (1) wants to go Somewhere That’s Green. Pippen wants to find his Corner of the Sky and Tevya wonders what life would be like if he was a rich man. If I had an “I Want” song for this week, it would have been all about making a perfect Christmas experience and home for my family.

I wanted to clean the house.
