Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I HOPE To Accomplish on Spring Break Next Week

1. Knit something (or more than one something).

2. Refinish our china cabinet- it was my grandmothers and boy does it need it!

3. Paint the TV shelf my sweet Daddy built for the guest room.

4. Pick out a new ceiling fan for our living room- an anniversary present!

5. Get our taxes done. A necessary evil.

6. Clean out the hall closet that is full of holiday stuff. Get rid of everything I haven't used in the past 2 years.

7. Stay in my pajamas until at least noon one day.

8. Read at least 3 books- including our next book club book.

9. Go through my cookbooks and come up with a list of 12 new things to make for dinner. I feel like I am in a dinner rut and make the same stuff every week. (I'll post them if anyone is interested).

10. Paint the inside of our pantry door with chalkboard paint.

11. Complete at least one of the three craft projects I have purchased the materials for and blog about it.

12. Scan some old pictures and post them on Facebook.

13. Spend one day with no computer, no phone, and no TV. (That will also be known as a miracle).


  1. Love your list!!! There are some ideas on there that I might just have to add to my own! :o)

  2. Great list! I hope you accomplish everything you set out to do!

    *Chalkboard paint on the inside of the pantry door - PURE GENIUS! Thanks!

  3. I guess #14 would be implied: Stop by Sonic at least 100 times for Diet Coke. :-) Good luck on your list, friend! And have a great week!

  4. I like Chris' number 14...they should be on speed dial!

    Have a great weekend! And I want to know the title of the book chosen!

  5. Sounds like a great plan... :o)

  6. I like the idea of chalkboard paint inside the pantry door......hhhmmmm.....might try that here!
    I have a hall closet full of seasonal/holiday stuff that could use a clean sweep!!
    And please share new recipes!! I've no doubt I'm in a dinner rut!! Easy to do with a picky family!!

  7. That is an ambitious list! You go girl!

  8. As I was reading through the list I was thinking, What a great list! I know how organized you are and I am sure you will accomplish them all. Then I got to #7, I truely hope you accomplish that one more than any of the others. And if you accomplish #13, please let me know how that is done! PLEASE!
