Thursday Thirteen

13 things about Titanium

1. My sister & her family are moving here next week.

2. They are buying a house 5 miles away from me.

3. It’s been a really long time since I lived close to either of my sisters. I’m looking forward to it.

4. This week at work has been very busy & stressful. Instead of working with the 2 facilities I normally work with, I’m doing billing for 2 hospitals that are completely new to me, since several people are out on vacation this week.

5. My kids are finally getting a little bored with summer & are starting to seem a bit happy about school starting next month.

6. I’ve gotten all the younger two kids’ school supplies.. and saved quite a bit of $$ by shopping the sales.

7. I’ve gotten basic supplies for junior high daughter’s classes. We’ll pick up the rest after she is given the list on the first day of school.

8. Did you know that baby carrots fit nicely inside a human child’s nostril? I had never thought about it.. until it was demonstrated for me last night. I’ll never look at baby carrots the same again.

9. Oldest daughter will be 13 on Saturday. I still am not grasping that I will have a teenager by the end of the week. Seems strange to be old enough to have a teenager.

10. Dobby has begun to learn a new song. We’re working on the opening of “Dixie.”

11. Oldest daughter wants another betta (fish) and a rabbit for her birthday.

12. She just told me that she’d also like a turtle. Do you buy turtles at petstores?

13. If my kids (especially oldest daughter) had their way, we’d have an entire houseful of animals living with us.

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!

  1. WooHoo, I’m first! I love your list. You have been a busy girl. I will have to say I am glad I do not have to buy school supplies any more!!!
    Have a great day…my 13 are up. Come on by and have a glass of tea and visit for a while!

  2. oh, don’t get a turtle! DONT get a turtle! They are smelly, BORING, and stupid, and oh yeah, SMELLY. Plus they have a lot of that gross bacteria that can make you really sick. We had one for over 2 years and couldn’t wait to get rid of the dang thing. They never die. We ‘freecycled’ him. Blech. But, happy bday to your daughter! Mine is 16 and it’s been fun!

  3. ah, teenagers. πŸ™‚ I think you can buy turtles at the petstore. Loving animals means that they have good hearts. πŸ™‚

  4. I’m reading your post just before I go dice baby carrots for our iguana. I wonder if they’d fit up his nose, too?

    I LOVE your blog header! WAY COOL photo/colors! πŸ˜‰

  5. I loved your 13. Very cool.

  6. great list!! I also think a turtle is not a great idea, but sometimes we do things for our kids. ~ Joe

  7. I like your blog’s new look!
    I never could keep a turtle alive; they all kept dying on me. Or was it rabbits that kept dying??
    I wish I was buying 10 acres in OK so I could live by you. It would be fun for all 3 of us to live close to each other.
    Love you bunches,

  8. I hope you have a great time with your sister so close! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for visiting my list!
