Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen things
I would like to do over Winter Break:

  1. Scrub all the tile flooring in the house.
  2. Start doing tax paperwork.
  3. Read at least one of the books on my “want to read” list.
  4. Bake a huge batch of cinnamon rolls.
  5. Exercise daily (no more excuses!).
  6. Play board and card games with the children.
  7. Go out for a nice dinner with my husband.
  8. Get my hair repermed and trimmed.
  9. Bake a huge batch of gingerbread cookies (See why I want/need to exercise?).
  10. Tell each member of my family some of the things I admire about them.
  11. Call each of my brothers and my sister.
  12. Register for a math class.
  13. Teach Rebecca how to drive a manual transmission car.

    Hey, that’s a lot of stuff….I will cheer you on to victory to get it all done. Just when does vacation start for you all?

    Welcome to Thursday’s Thirteen! I have yet to join 😛
    I hope you get some of those things done! How long is the break?

    Thank you, Marmee and Laura, for commenting. 🙂
    The winter break begins 12/20 and we’re back to school 1/3.

    I’m thinking of also posting a “Thirteen Things I hope my husband gets done over winter break” post, but I don’t want to nag. 😛

  4. Laura says:

    Haha! Tough to think of 13 things of something *every week*

    How about…13 Favorite Memories, or 13 Favorite Activities? 😛

  5. Joyce says:

    Those are good suggestions, Laura. 🙂

    I want to scan in some more old photos from some of our albums. Those could go with “Favorite Memories”.

    Your first Thursday Thirteen could be something like “13 Favorite Baby Blogs”. Is that good?

  6. […] One of the things I was really hoping to accomplish over Winter Break was making a bunch of cinnamon rolls. Today I had the luxury of indulging my domestic urge and baked to my heart’s content. […]
