Thirteen Things I Want to Do

This is my 7th edition of Thursday Thirteen!

1. Catch up on my scrapbooking. (yeah, that’ll happen. I’m several YEARS behind!) I would settle for simply having a whole day uninterrupted to work on it.

2. Finish the 30 day organizational challenge sponsored by Organizing Junkie.

3. Connect my video camera to the computer. Since we got Vista, I have to use a different type of connection, which I had to order and finally received, and I had to buy a new version of my favorite video software Studio, by Pinnacle Systems, which is finally installed. Now, to actually get it working…

4. Read! I am loving Stephen White, Robert Crais, and as always, James Patterson, my favorite. I’ve got several books on my list.

5. Make a new picture slideshow – doesn’t matter what subject – I just enjoy doing that.

6. Brush up on my photography skills. Kodak has good tips and tricks. I want to find another site to learn from, too.

7. Learn to play the piano. Ok – I know it’s not going to happen overnight, but two of my daughter’s play, I can read treble clef music, and I used to be able to play an organ and a trumpet when I was little, so I figure there’s a chance that I could actually learn to play something recognizable.

8. Make a new CD of my favorite Christmas songs.

9. Continue my Online Expert classes for work. May seem strange, but I actually would rather do my training from the computer at home, particularly since it is optional training (I get credit for it) that I can use not only for work but also for home applications, so I also enjoy it.

10. Go to the YMCA to use the weight machines, ride the stationery bike, and walk on the treadmill. I can’t stand to exercise outside, and I am really looking forward to having a membership at the Y again. I bought it today. There is a brand-new facility near my house, but being a holiday, I will not be able to go until Friday or Saturday.

11. Clean out my bedroom closet. How do all the Christmas gifts, extra pillows and blankets, outgrown clothes, and miscellaneous items get stuck in my closet? Maybe I should have used that closet for the small space category for the organizational challenge. Nah, my junk drawer is almost cleaned out already.

12. Hang some photographs on the stairwell wall. I hung two yesterday, but I have a couple more.

13. Decorate for Christmas, which I can’t do until after my step-daughter’s birthday on December 8th. My husband won’t let me do it any earlier.


  1. You're going to be very busy! Happy TT

  2. That's a long list of TO-DO's. Happy TT! :D

  3. Oh..I think you're going to be so busy then! :) I share the same with your #1 though but mine is only for months..:)
    Mine is up here;
    Thursday Thirteen
    Happy TT!

  4. Christmas music ~ you've inspired me to pull mine out too.

  5. Yes, this was an inspiring post. CURSE YOU for reminding me of all the things I could---and should---be doing. Kidding.

    Go for that piano!

  6. Wow. What a long list! But I'm sure you'll manage :)

  7. It's tradition for us to put up the tree the day after Thanksgiving. I'm working tomorrow, but hope to get to it anyway. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Numbers 8 and 11 are for me too. I make a new holiday cd every year, incorporating whatever new music I find. And my bedroom closet has gotten way out of control. I'm almost afraid to go in there. :-)

    Happy Turkey Day and TT!

  9. Great list! I, too, have a list like that -- but in my brain. I'm afraid that if I write it down, I'll actually have to finish it all! LOL

    Come check out my TT --


  10. I'll be making a couple Christmas CD's later today myself! (love Manheim Steamroller and Transiberian Orchestra)

    Happy TT-13 and Happy Thanksgiving!


  11. Wow That is quite the list! Good Luck with it. Happy TT

  12. It sounds like you have a lot to keep you going. I wish you luck getting it all done!

  13. It sounds like you better get started!!

  14. I agree with the brushing up on photography skills!! I need that!
    I also need to do some more reading, need to make some time!

    & I also agree with decorating for Christmas. We may be moving soon, so can't put our tree up! :(

  15. Good luck with your list! I bet you'll get it all done efficiently!

    Happy TT!

  16. Great list, I would like to accomplish many goals too this year! Hope you stop by and visit me at Love Conquers All, Thank you!
