Thursday 13, Week 2 of the New Edition.


MMM's the word for this Thursday 13!

1. Mom - Since she has been in the hospital for 8, going on 9, days, she has been in most of my waking thoughts as well as some of my dreams. Her recovery has been one of those "2 steps forward, 3 steps back situations."

2. Mortality - Given mom's situation, mortality has been in my thoughts a lot. Not just hers, but my own.

3. Mammogram - I had to go get one today. It was my third one in four years. That's what happens when you turn 40. Not horrible, but not fun, either.

4. Marriage - Why, oh, why did I think marriage would make anything easier? It only makes things more difficult in situations like mine where we're blending families. Sometimes I am so unhappy and have to wonder, "What was I thinking?"

5. Makeup - Putting on makeup in the morning is one of my least favorite things to do. But, since I go to work, the makeup helps my appearance.

6. Mascara - This is what I consider essential if I'm not going to do all of my makeup. At least I can do mascara and eye liner. It makes a difference!

7. Mirror - What I have to use to put on my makeup and brush my hair.

8. Mexican - One of my favorite types of food, particularly flour tortillas, cheese enchiladas, and guacamole. Yum!

9. Maid - I sure could use one. My family will help in little ways, but they really don't care if the house is clean or not, so it's left to me. I need a maid!

10. Magical - I could use some magic now, too. Wish I was planning a Magical Getaway to Disney like I was at this time last year.

11. Musuem - I would really love to see the exhibit "The Birth of Christianity" at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. We attmepted to go last weekend, but the traffic around the area was horrible, and there was no place to park... anywhere!

12. Millionaire - I'm not one, I don't know any, but I should have married one!

13. Morals - Something I feel is lacking in many young people of today. I don't know why I mentioned this. It really gets me going. I could debate about this issue all night.

But since I'm out of time and have done my 13, I will pass the torch to someone else. Thanks for visiting me! Visit other Thursday 13-ers here.

Even for work I don't bother with the makeup. I tried mascara a few times, but no one notices it behind the thick glasses.

Lucy said...

Marvelous M list for your T-13. I'm continuing to pray for your family and your mom. I participated in T-13 today at Small Reflections ... the first time in a long time.
Hugs and blessings,

Thanx for the plug! ;-)

I wear less and less makeup the older I get. I think it's supposed to be the other way around, but I'm just too lazy to screw with it most days. And, um, I have that natural beauty. Yeah, that's it. :P

Praying for you and your mom every day, sweetie!
