Thursday Thirteen - random facts about me

Thirteen Things about Christie

1. One of my biggest flaws is procrastination.

2. I love chocolate covered strawberries. So. Much.

3. The last song I downloaded was Rainy Days and Mondays by the Carpenters.

4. The last show I watched on TV was Veronica Mars on Tuesday night.

5. I'm currently (re)reading an anthology of short stories from Iowa's Writing Workshop.

6. I wish it would snow a couple of feet, so that my kids could experience snowmen.

7. Since becoming a work-at-home mom, I have definitely solidified my addiction to a daily cup of coffee.

8. I have also solidified my addiction to using the Spray Anywhere by Clorox. It makes me feel like germs have limited chance of survival in my house.

9. I don't mind washing/drying clothes...or's getting them actually put away that drives me nuts.

10. I have terrible luck with pets - every pet I have ever had has tragically there's a stray cat that has been living on my porch for months and months. I feed her, pet her, but I refuse to get attached. I call her Cat. I figure there are worse things than being neutrally named after the kitty in an Audrey Hepburn movie. Such as death, which I just feel sure would follow any sign on my part that I like her. So Cat she is and Cat she will remain. Besides, I once tried to tell Sean that her name was Scarlett O'Hara (because of her green eyes), he angrily corrected me. "No! That's Cat!" Why argue?

11. I like playing with Christian's trains probably just as much as he does.

12. I am a loyal Carolina Tarheel gal. We have an awesome team this year and I'm saying it right here, right now - we're headed for the championship.

13. I took piano lessons for years and years...I'm not that great, but I hope to teach the boys to play. Until next Thursday...

I'm a big procrastinator myself! I can't seem to escape it. I'm with you on the laundry. I'm OK with washing, drying, even ironing, but I HATE HATE HATE putting it away. Strange...

Happy Thursday!

Wonderful list! I am a chocoholic, so anything that has chocolate is an added bonus, LOL! I also procrastinate. I think it's cool that you know your limitations with pets, LOL . I also want to have my girls learn an instrument. My 5 yr old has already stated to complain that learning the piano will be hard. Happy TT!

Great list!! :) I too love chocolate covered strawberries. Have you seen the ones at Godiva that are like a strawberry/banana shiskabob covered in Godiva Chocolate? If you ever do, get one, it's so worth it. YUM!

I, too, tragically am a procrastinator. But I make up for it by being enthusiastic about it lol. I am a Carolina gal too. I took piano lessions as a child and got tired of it, but it made being in band easier because I had already learned the basics of reading music. My TT is on my 13 fav tv shows.
