Thursday, again?!

Is it just me, or did this week go quick? I guess that’s what happens when you’re confined to the house with sick kids and the days begin to blur. Still, better make the most of today as I plan to get them back to school tomorrow, and that will mean freedom!

And being Thursday, it’s time for my Thursday Thirteen! This week my theme is wishes, now many of my responses could be interpreted as ‘What I would do if I was rich’, but as I don’t actually have the desire to be rich, I’ll stick with the simpler things I would like (if my bank account allowed! Though I guess, if I could afford them, I would be rich!)

Thirteen wishes for Jona

1. Get a driver for the school and activity runs. I know this is extreme luxury, but I would choose a driver over cleaner or cook any day!

2. For those times when I do need to drive, I would like a Volvo XC90, the seven seater that looks more like a jeep than a bus!

3. An indoor swimming pool. With the kids in tow I never get to swim properly. But if we had our own (warm, breeze free) pool, attached to the house, I could swim after they’ve gone to bed!

4. A roof. Tempting just to say move house, but in truth I would love to see the plans we had for this house realised, and if the roof was built we’d end up with a bedroom for each of the kids, and a wonderful master suite. And moving is hard work!

5. Visit many of you. Corny, but true. I would love to meet many of you in person!

6. Find and get a good look at my biological father and sisters. Don’t particularly want to meet them, but I have a fascination with people who look like me and apparently I have his eyes.

7. More children. I know that would be totally irresponsible and impractical, but when I’m not moaning about their habits, I really do like them!

8. Have a minor face lift. When I was younger, I swore I would grow old gracefully, but I didn’t know what I was talking about!

9. Have a mountain (as well as the sea) in my view. I know this doesn’t tie in with the not moving, but I’m reaching the dreamy stage and I love mountains!

10. To go with my mountain view I would like a horse. And some riding lessons probably wouldn’t go amiss too. Oh, and my son wouldn’t be allergic to them anymore either!

11. A chocolate Labrador puppy! This is probably the only wish on my list that I have any hope of fulfilling. Just not any time soon.

12. A month at Disney World to make up for all the holidays the kids have never had. Can’t say that this would be my holiday of choice, but it’s definitely theirs!

13. When I die I’d like to be cryogenically frozen. And when I return, I wouldn’t object to waking up with a body age of twenty. Unlikely I know, but the idea of seeing and living the future fascinates me!

And I'm going to cheat, because Thirteen isn't enough! Last but not least, I would like to see the Earth from space!

I am considering #8. Nice to see I am not the only one, lol. As for my own list, that WAS a very interesting life I led. I live a lot calmer and quieter now believe me, lol.

Happy TT!

My week has flown by too, thank goodness! I have had a lot of fun doing the Thursday 13. This week's is kind of lame because my brain is mush. LOL

It was fun reading yours. I love the mountains here, but I'd love to have the ocean too.

Have a great day!

MOH - Of course!! And I'd beg you to take me star-gazing at the observatory you & Huw visited (it sounded wonderful :o)) And I want to see an armadillo too!

I agree with many things on your list. Most of all, the one where you'd like to meet everyone on here in person. Wouldn't that be cool!

Yes, very many of the things I'd go for too (but not all of them).

How do you manage without a roof on your house? Doesn't the weather someowhat intrude - albeit you can see the stars when laying in bed.

At least the puddles in the kitchen are now explained - it was raining, wasn't it?

It would be fun to put faces and personalities with blogs, wouldn't it?

Let's see: She hates driving kids to parties and school, so she would like more kids so she can hate it worse. Okay. I got it.

Ooops! I forgot to do a Thirteen today. Hmm. Maybe later.

Me, I want a puppy. Any breed will do.

The sea and the mountains at the same time. There aren't many places on earth for that. I seem to remember a children's story about moving the mountain to the house.

Great list! That pool looks so tempting, I must say. Makes me want to go for a swim, but the only public pool in our town is open-air and closed until May.

I love your wish list!
I'd love more kids too - luckily my husband brings me to reason. And my kids have lots of friends who are always hanging around, so the house is usually full!
We have a chocolate lab - she is the Sweetest thing & we adore her.
Here is my link to thirteen:
