TT#19: Thirteen Ideas for Thursday Thirteen Lists


Thirteen Things from mom huebert


I'm not recovering as quickly as I'd hoped from our week of late nights. Probably because I think I also contracted some sort of virus in the aftermath. It's something that makes me ache pretty much from head to foot, and makes me tired and a little weepy. It's sad that as soon as breakfast is over it feels like I've put in a full day's work.

I realize that Thursday Thirteen is upon us, and I want to participate, and I can't do less than the US Mail-- rain, sleet, snow, and aches and pains, and all that.

However, try as I might-- all day in fact, in between cooking, laundry, and sitting around being tired (and staining some trim and bandaging Hubby's bloodied, injured, cut-up thumbnail that he got working on the trim)-- I've tried to come up with a list of thirteen things that might be at least slightly interesting.

I now have a list of 26 ideas for lists. Twenty-six! And I can't think of more than TWO things for each idea. Sometimes not even one.

And now inspiration hits! I have a list! A list of Ideas for Lists!

So here is a list of Thirteen Ideas for Thursday Thirteen Lists. (Feel feel to borrow, plagiarize, or otherwise incorporate these ideas-- assuming they are worth borrowing and plagiarizing.)

1. Foods I like to eat (or make)

2. Places I'd like to vist

3. Things I'd like to do someday

4. Things I wish I'd done differently

5. Favorite bible passages

6. Things I never want to do

7. Pet peeves

8. Things my kids loved --or hated-- about homeschool

9. Things I remember

10. Best gifts I've gotten

11. Nice things hubby has done for me

12. Favorite songs

13. Household tips


Now, I have a whole week to try to flesh out at least one of these lists! See you then!

I have to giggle a little because JUST before visiting you, I was commenting on a list of "Thirteen Things That Prevent You From Doing Thursday Thirteens"... and number one was "Writer's Block". I should backtrack and send 'em your way!

Cool idea … especially since you’re not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon. I’ve bookmarked this page for some day when I’m in need of inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,

I alway enjoy seeing what rolls around people's brains - especially TT ideas (which are hard to come by).

Happy TT

A list of lists, you are my kind of woman! Personally I can't wait to read #s 4,8,11,and 13. I hope you post them soon.

Another list you could do is:

Sue said...

These are very creative! Hope you are better soonly :) Happy TT :)

Eve said...

I have copied your list and added it to my list of ideas for future blogs that I keep in a word document. I am so much better at doing something with someone else's ideas than I am with coming up with something original. Therefore I copy or make not anything that looks good.

Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment. Special thanks because you did this when you're not feeling well. Get better! Drop in again soon. -Eve

A list of lists is pretty inventive. I bet you're still thinking of more.

Mr Lady said...

Wow. We wrote the same list! We must be mystically connected or something. Or maybe we're both just REALLY cool. :)

Tiffany said...

This is great for ideas when I can't think of anything else! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for your comment on my Thursday 13. I am glad it was helpful. I want something good to come out our suffering. Hopefully, you won't have to use the tips much, but things always come up in life.

Ha! Just saved your list. Gonna use it (though I'd have a hard time coming up with things for #11, unless I change "hubby" to "my Wonder Woman" *heh*)
