Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things SpeakEasy is up to right now

1. Trying to finish a 8000-12000 word essay focussing on Knowledge Management and Confidentiality within the Canadian Tax System... bu tomorrow.

2. Building a better wife... By that I mean making th most of every second I get to spend with UrbanMummy and letting her know how great she is. Hanging out with her tonight would be a great start.

3. Taking down and out the remaining cedars in the backyard of my house so that the gardener can come and put up a fence.

4. Cleaning out the "Red Room" in our house, which is going to be the Happy Boy's room once the new baby comes (in 3 months), but we need empty so we can get him used to it, slowly.

5. Organizing and taking inventory of our Scrapbook merchandise and Embellishments so we can bring the store back online or get the mready to be sold in another store

6. 9 Reports for management on my work files, due tomorrow.

7. Taking care of my sciatica, and that does not mean taking pills to make the pain less. I'm tired of not being able to put on my socks in pain. I'm only 35.

8. Cleaning out the garage. For a freezer coming soon, and to put the car in it. So much junk.

9. Getting ready to complete an exam this weekend

10. Looking at 2 businesses to begin in the spring, or next summer so I can leave my job and let UrbanMummy just worry about the kids and her video Ipod.

11. Get my bike tire fixed and actually use it so i can lose some unwanted baby-weight. If UrbanMummy can lose all, and more of her baby-weight, then so can I.

12. Socialize. It's been way too long for old friends and hopefully some new ones. Once the week is over, it should be time to be social again. I miss talking to adults.

13. Sleep. I'd love to. Just say when, dear.

Tracie said...

Sounds like you are staying very busy!!

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Kyra said...

Whew. The essay sounds quite scary. I’m definitely going to have to check out your store…and have you tried acupuncture? I started it recently for allergies and have had some pretty great results. My grandmother had it for problems with her knees (I think it was her knees) and she had amazing results. Hope that wasn’t bossy. :)

Frustrated Writer said...

yikes! hope the back pain is taken care of quickly. Cedars are always a good tree to take out for a fence as they are quite the allergy generators... now go and get some sleep!

Shroom-Monkey said...

You're gonna put a car in the freezer? Why?

SpeakEasy said...

Oy, Shroom-sicle? So good, yet so bad...

The freezer AND the car are going in the garage. Once i clean it out. We moved recently and everything went in the garage and a room in the house, soon to be needed for the upcoming addition to the family.

Kyra - Can't get past the thought of needles. Yuck.

Tracie - thanks for stopping by.

Frustrated - that is most of the reason why they must go. Allergies and mosquitos. And to quote Bon Jovi of all artists... "I'll sleep when I'm dead".

Angela said...

Socialize?! That's all you ever do at work. You also whine about your hemorrhoids a lot.

lisalou said...

Good Luck on the baby weight! My Husband thought that was funny. He figures he'll have the same problem one day!

Shroom-Monkey said...

Yikes you have hemmroids- add to the list getting one of those donut cushions so you can quit whining.

Red Room- remember Amityville Horror, not that kind of red room I hope!! Cuz that would be really messed up of you to put a kid in.
