13 Reasons Why I Can't Concentrate And Get Anything Done Around Home
13. Let's face it, my bum hurts! My mom bought a piece of fleece for me to sit on during the day. It must be working because I am wanting to go outside and graze. Baaaa!
12. I love my family. I do, but I have yet to spend 10 seconds to myself without one of them needing to talk about something. I am a good listener, but c'mon peeps I've got stuff to do too!
11. If you know me at all you know I am obsessed with my pillows. Well, my dog has also developed this obsession. She keeps rearranging my pillows to HER liking and it drives me insane. Maybe I need to buy her some pillows too. The girls got taste I must admit!
10. The ringing in my ears isn't helping matters much either.
9. I haven't made a single list yet! I need to make a list of things to pack for myself and one for my husband since he will be staying with me after surgery. A chore list for the kids so I know things will get done. A list of what to mail on what days so I don't bounce any checks while I'm gone. A list of phone numbers of people wanting to know how surgery went. A list of phone numbers for the kids if they need something. And a list of do's and don'ts for the kids while I'm gone. Yes, they are older, but we all know the saying "If the cat's away....." That applies to my precious angels as well!
8. Besides the family talking non-stop, my phone has been ringing off the wall. And it hasn't been from friends either. Lots of sales calls and I tell them we are on the No Call List and to please remove our name. A few minutes later another call from the same people! Uh hello? What did I just tell you? LEAVE ME ALONE!!! Pretty please?
7. Ahh, seven. It's my favorite number. What's yours?
6. I can't rest until I know everything there is to know about David and Victoria Beckham! It's a good thing this couple is plastered all over the telly. But I'm sure there's more to the story. I need to tune in tonight and watch Extra and Entertainment Tonight. I'm sure they'll have the latest gossip!
5. I'm typing this TT and knowing I should be taking this time to start making my lists, but yet I keep typing because I want to finish this because I am so close to being done. Rambling, I know!
4. Four reminds me that it is only 4 days until I'm hip again ;o) But then realizing it's only 4 more days makes me cringe and think, "Do I really want to go through with it?" This then makes me think of Phillipians 4:13 I can do ALL things through Christ which strengthens me.
3. I can't get the Macarena song out of my head. Do you know how hard it is to do the macarena on crutches? But hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! Ahh macarena! I got you thinking about it too ;o)
2. I want a new purse. It's silly I know, but for some reason I want a new one and I can't stop thinking about buying one. I don't even have a clue what I would be looking for since I don't really go anywhere to use one. But I want one. I need to get a reality check, huh? I wonder if there would be a nice pocket for that reality check to fit in when I get my new purse..heehee!
1. The voices in my head are telling me to get off the internet and start making lists so I can get at least one thing accomplished today! Maybe I'll start with a list of stores where I can buy a new purse!
HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYBODY!

Ugh, the Macarana should be outlawed as evil!

The list of places to get a new purse, one with a big enough pocket for your reality check to be put into sounds like a great idea to me, lol.

Do you realize that one of your lists could have been your T13 post? Then you'd be part way done... hahaha.

Best of results with your surgery, and a speedy recovery.

You sound like you're in a bit of a dither over everything. I'm praying that you will have peace about your surgery; that you will get your lists done (believe me, I KNOW why you need lists--I get it); that your husband and children will help you effectively as you prepare for surgery and afterwards as well; that the doctors will be under the guided "hand" of God while they perform the surgery; that you will experience God's peace. I said I'd pray for peace twice because it is IMPORTANT. Truly . . . please relax.
I loved this post. It gave me an even better insight into YOU. I love when posts do that.
Blessings and lots of HUGS to you today, Amy.

I love your Thursday 13 lists - they always give me a chuckle! Speaking of lists, I need to make my grocery one!

Cindy Swanson said...

Great list! But about Victoria Beckham...why is she never (or rarely) photographed smiling? If I was thin, rich, and married to David Beckham, I think I'd have a smile plastered on my face at all times! :)

On number 8 try this for a hoot...http://www.stupidvideos.com/video/just_plain_stupid/Payback_on_a_telemarketer/

Jeremy said...

I guess word wrap did not work, but you can go to stupidvideos.com and look for the telemarketer call, or just cut and paste from the previous post

Sandy said...

Oh my I could do a similar post on why I can't get anything done around my home! :)

Didn't realize the big surgery is in 4 days.....keep us posted on how we can pray for you....now stop reading your commments and go get something done!! LOL!!!

Amy, I love reading your T13 lists. You have this way of putting a smile on my face.

Everything will be fine with your surgery, and you'll feel so much better. Keeping you in my prayers.

I have to tell you, I told the baby to sit on her 'bum' in her chair, and she kept repeating it over and over it was so cute.

*HUGS*
