Thursday Thirteen #37 . . . 13 Areas In Which I'm Woefully Behind . . .

1) Reading -- Don't mean to be redundant, but not only do I have a stack of books awaiting my attention, but the magazine pile is even thicker and taller.

2) Joining The Facebook Revolution -- I really do plan to join one day soon. But I know it's going to be time-consuming and right now, I just can't spare any.

3) Dusting -- Yes, those evil dust bunnies are not only multiplying, they've begun mutating and marauding around here.

4) Decluttering -- I know getting rid of and/or finding better places to store all of my junk would make me feel a whole lot better.

5) Trying new recipes -- I still collect them (which only adds to the clutter), but it's been months since I've tried preparing a new dish.

6) Arranging old pictures in photo albums -- My photo collection is a mess. I stopped regularly cataloging my son's pictures when he was in Kindergarten. He's now a middle-schooler. Sheesh!

7) Doing my taxes -- It's not like we owe anything, at least I don't think we do (smile). As long as we take care of this before April 15th, I guess we'll be all right.

8) Scrap-booking-- Yeah, see #6, 'cause the same applies for all of my son's school and sports memorabilia. Except, it goes back even further. At this rate, he'll be an adult and I'll just be putting together his preschool album . . .

9) Watching dvds I've purchased -- I buy them, but then I don't make time to watch them . . . and then I forget I even have them.

10) Deleting old email -- I kid you not, in one of my email accounts, I have over 500 undeleted email. I read them, but don't take the time to delete the ones I don't need to keep.

11) Updating my blog -- What can I say? One day, I'll get to it.

12) Visiting the dentist -- I'm so ashamed. I still have all of them, my teeth, that is (smile) and I am making sure the kid goes on the regular.

13) Having pictures developed -- I have a disposable camera that has undeveloped pictures on it from last summer. Everyday, I say I'm gonna take them to be developed, but it has yet to happen.

So, am I the only one?

Would you like to visit other Thursday Thirteeners?

Be my guest!

I have real pictures from when my daughter was born, 12 years ago, sitting in my hutch drawer. I REALLY need to have those developed.

Decluttering is definitely on my list. Hope you accomplish all you set out to do. Happy T13!

Jen said...

FB is so addicting...one more way to keep in touch!! I don't print pics ever but take them lilke crazy!! Hate the dentist...just blew off an appointment yesterday!

Chris said...

You'll find that Facebook is very much subject to the law of diminishing returns. It's great to start with, but it loses its gloss very quickly, so don't be too worried about not having joined.

I know the feeling. My list would probably be even longer than just 13 things, if I wasn't so behind on making lists as well. ;-)

Brenda ND said...

Oh, man, I'm behind on all these things too. Happy TT, anyway.

Janet said...

I handle the blog and Andy handles Facebook - we provide input to each other's efforts but that's how we manage the time. If I got onto Facebook I would never leave the computer. It's better in his hands. My big project is uploading all those photos I take - and picking ones out to frame and decorate with. Such a fun thing to do too - why does it always get bumped to the bottom of the list?

Like the line in the Stones' song "Mixed Emotions" goes, "you're not the only one". I'm bad at deleting old email. Occasionally, I will set aside time on a Sunday morning and go on a deleting frenzy.

For almost two years, I quit buying DVDs for the reason you cited. I recently broke my drought by purchasing Season 2 of "Route 66".
