My 2nd "official" Thursday 13

Thirteen Things about Amy

1. I hate mornings. No matter which way I look at them, I just don't like them. I fight myself every morning that I have to be up.

2. I am an only child, but I never enjoyed it when I was younger. I always wanted siblings until college and then I appreciated being the only one.

3. I am very close to my parents. I talk to them daily.

4. My first puppy, Cashew, is 13 1/2 now. She is deaf and blind and is becoming senile. It's hard to make the decision to put her down. She really is a part of the family.

5. My grandma will be 80 this summer (she lives in FL). The only thing she wanted for her birthday was to come up here to WI to go to an hold restaurant she always enjoyed. So that's what we're doing for her!

6. My birthday is tomorrow and I'll be 24 (yikes!) Where has the time gone?

7. The apartment the fiance and I are in now is my 1st apartment besides my parent's house and living at school!

8. I love keeping track of the bills and writing out the checks. I enjoy doing all the banking stuff checkbook doesn't balance! That's so annoying!

9. I need to buy hiking boots. I've been putting it off because I don't like shoes that go over my ankles, however, fiance informed me that's what they're for (to protect the ankles!) I'm still putting it off....

10. My parents are bringing down a bunch of their old camping stuff so hopefully fiance and I can go camping some time soon. We're hoping for next weekend. This weekend I believe we are going hiking (which means I need to do #9)

11. I am very afraid of bees. I was stung when I was little and have been afraid since then.

12. I do a lot of driving for my job and because of that, I have learned to LOVE music. It's very relaxing when I have to drive long distances to pop in a mixed CD and sing at the top of my lungs. Time goes by faster too.

13. I had a hard time with this week. For some reason, I couldn't come up with 13 things very easily. Usually, I have these done in less than 5 min. Happy Thursday!

Janet ( said...

re: #11 - me, too! I saw a wasp on the stairs and thought it was a grasshopper...OUCH!

Carmen said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!! I'm not fond of bees either, cuz if one stings me, I have only a few minutes to stick myself with a needle before i could stop breathing. :0

My list is up

Anonymous said...

I don't like getting up in the morning either. ;)

Happy Birthday to you!!! :) :) I hope you have a great special day!!!

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

I can't balance the checkbook either to save my life. I figure if I'm close (within 5 dollars) then I'm good.

Chaotic Mom said...

You are in WI? I'm originally from Green Bay! I sure don't miss the cold, though. I think it's great that you're so close to your parents. That's something we're trying to work on with our boys. ;)

Thank you for stopping by my T13!

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

That's so sweet about your grandma. I'm jealous if you can usually come up with 13 things in 5 minutes or so.

Thanks for visiting my TT. Happy Thursday!

Scouser said...

I'm with you all the way with #1. Thank you for visiting my T13

EmilyRoseJewel said...

You and I seem very similar. Here is a random fact for me related to yours. Last week I had to kill two bees in my kitchen and I actually found two more dead, but haven't seen any since then. I hate bees in mortal fear. Happy early birthday. I am 24 myself and it will be very strange to turn 25 in October. Hate mornings just like you, but my 8 1/2 mos. old loves them. Happy Thurs. My list is up!

Kelly said...

Happy Birthday! And... I am afraid of bees as well.

Happy Thursday!
