TT # 18

Last week I sat out of Thursday Thirteen as I was sicker than a dog. I couldn't even have one coherent thought, let alone sit at a computer and type up something that was remotely interesting.

This week, I return. I don't have illness to blame for my sheer lack of creativity tonight. But oh well ... sometimes you have that.

13 Random Thoughts Coming from My Brain Tonight

1. CRAP! Next Thursday is Thanksgiving!

2. CRAP! Next Monday we take off for our whirlwind tour of Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

3. CRAP! I haven't started packing for that whirlwind tour.

4. CRAP! I turn 37 on the 27th! Thank goodness I am not sharing my birthday with the turkey this year. I was actually born on T-day in 1969. At lunch. My brother still holds it against me that (1) I was the reason he got no turkey that year and (2) I wasn't a boy.

5. I need to buy Robin's daughter's birthday present for Saturday.

6. I need to make brownies and chocolate chip cookies for the trip next week.

7. Why does my choir director hate me so? I can sing. Really, I can. I have a decent voice. So why is it ALWAYS the Jim, Leann and Wendy show? WHY?!?!?!

8. Man I can't wait until Ace returns with that sundae from Friendlys.

9. CRAP! I didn't get out to get any pumpkin bars at the Cafe tonight at church.

10. I wonder how Mini Martha did on her first Pampered Chef party tonight? I wonder if Mini Martha (AKA my vegan sister) will serve meat at these parties?

11. I wonder if my BIL found the long, lost mortally wounded deer today.

12. Where is Ace with that sundae?

13. I MUST remember to pack underwear for myself on this trip.

Happy TT to everyone! I will not be up next week because we will be in Tennessee, oohing and aahing over one of the cousin's new babies, and asking the other cousin if she is having morning sickness yet. That and corraling my kids, getting ready to use the excuses of "she's just really tired" or "it takes a while for the Drammamine to wear off, so he will be like that for a while" or "it must be allergies."

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Why is it that when you're a mom and wife, every thought begins with CRAP???

I can so relate.

CRAP! Is next Thursday really Thanksgiving already???????

(My TT's up: Reasons I loved Trixie Belden more than I loved Nancy Drew...)

Crap! It would be, if you forgot the underwear!!

I am sitting here sniggering at the thought of the happy and relieved turkey at the vegan Pampered chef party :o)

Crap! If it's next Thursday then that means I have to go back to work soon thereafter... :) Enjoy your trip!

Man, what a busy week! I say simplify. Buy Twinkies for the trip; they'll double as a birthday gift, too. And if you post your choir director's address, we'll all drop him/her a nice but forceful email on your behalf! :) Happy TT and have a wonderful trip!

Holy crap! I was just getting into the moment... great list though. I added 25 songs on Wednesday, and since it's not quite Thursday here yet... but I will have a Thursday Thirteen, yes. I have just thought of one.

Love your birthday story. I had a cousin whose water broke during Thanksgiving one year...she refused to leave until she had finished her meal. She did make it to the hospital, but barely.

Happy TT!

CRAP! It sounds like you are going to be very busy next week!! LOL. I can't believe that Thanksgiving (then finals...then Christmas) is coming up so fast. Where did this year go, huh?!

Have a great Thursday!

No TT for me this week, but I do have a cute family story instead. (Which, really, is longer...but was more fun than wracking my brain for 13 things.) I've been illin' for the past three days, too. Maybe I got some weird computer virus? Who knows. All I know is that three days in bed leaves you aching and sore (and not in a good in-bed-for-three-days-on-your-honeymoon sort of way LOL).

Yes, do not forget the underwear.

Well happy upcoming Birthday!
My daughter's Bday is the 26th. Her 13th (and yes I'm actually spending 250 on a Video IPOD this year - cause it's the big 13)
I relate to your brother. My Mom, two sisters and daughters Dad had horrible hospital Turkey dinner that year. This was at least better than the ice chips I was allowed though.
OMG a Friendly's Sunday! I want one now. Choc chip ice cream and hot fudge

CRAP! You've got a lot on your mind....Must be a mom thing ;) -- because my mind sounds very similar!!

Crap, now I want a Sunday. Is Ace there? I can feel your pain. Too much to do and not enough time. Have a great holiday and enjoy your trip.

I had to be reminded yesterday that Thanksgiving was next week. This year has been going by way too fast for me! That's funny about you being born on T Day!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday...tomorrow night we have the infamous bakery bingo. Oh yeah. I may come out if we don't get back too late...
