Thursday Thirteen #19: upcoming events

Thirteen things I am looking forward to (in chronological order)

1. Going for a swim this afternoon

2. The next episode of The Office

3. The finalization of all the paperwork for the sale of our home

4. An overnight trip to San Francisco with my husband...the first time we have spent a night away together since our first child was born six years ago ( I know--pretty pathetic, right?)

5. The presidential election (and the end of the presidential campaign)

6. A trip to Hawaii all by myself in November, time to write and think, and try to learn how to surf

7. Thanksgiving in Minneapolis with my family, and hopefully meeting my nephew
(if he has made his appearance by then)

8. A mild California winter

9. Not shoveling snow

10. Snowboarding season in Tahoe

11. Christmas in Missouri with our families, and meeting my new niece

12. The Winter X Games (I am perpetually looking forward to the next Winter X Games)

13. Every day I'm lucky enough to get on this earth

Michelle said...

Wow, looks like you have a lot of fun stuff to look forward too. Hawaii sounds great. Lucky you! Happy TT and thanks for sharing.

Nicholas said...

Good list! Someone else who doesn't like snow!

Sharon said...

I'd look forward to all that, too!
Which island are you going to? (I've been to Kauai and Maui) I'm sure you'll have a blast!

I also can't wait for tomorrow's Office. (that's what she said...;)

FickleMinded said...

i don't consider #4 pathetic because it's also one of my to-do-list! :)

Meaghan said...

First of all, Hawaii? Alone? Can I be you when I grow up? As discussed in previous posts, I don't even get to pee alone, much less travel to an island paradise to write think and surf. Sheesh. No more sympathy for your messy dining room table.

Nice, uplifting post. (Except for the Hawaii part which leaves me bitter and jealous.)

Ruth said...

I know, I think I've lost everyone's sympathy with that Hawaii thing...
Obviously we need to organize a tropical Mommy Blogger retreat in the near future.

Sounds like a busy time coming up.

Lori said...

You're going to Hawaii by yourself?? That doesnt sound fun to me...vacation is all about sex and relaxing. HELLO;)I live in Cali and Im tired of the heat. We need Fall but at least it is never brutal. Happy TT. Great list.

Wow lots of fun traveling Hawaii to Minnesota should be quite the cultural shock:)

Angela said...

Hey. I tagged you. Check out my blog, and then get to it, lady. :)
Can't wait to read what you come up with.

Meju said...

Jenn said...
