Thursday Thirteen

I figured I'd give this a try, just for fun!

Thirteen Things about Lisa

1. I'm an avid reader. I once read seven books in a weekend. (Obviously, this was pre-J. Now I don't think I read seven books in a year.)
2. I'm adopted, and I've met my birth mom and my sister.
3. I've played the piano since I was seven, and thought about majoring in music.
4. My original major was chemistry. I should have stuck to science and given law school a miss.
5. My 4-year-old son's hands are almost as big as mine.
6. I'm pretty sure my house is haunted. It's OK, though, it's just family coming by to visit.
7. The town I live in is the Cement Capital of Texas - sa-lute!
8. I love to cook - I just hate cleaning up.
9. I tend to stay up far later than is prudent. (Note the time of this post.)
10. I grew up an only child.
11. I used to collect teddy bears, but lost the collection urge after J was born. (I'm now trying to weed out the damned collection - Boyd's Bears, anyone?)
12. I didn't learn to like coffee until I was well into my 30's. I'm making up for lost time, though.

13. Most days I generally like myself pretty well - circumstances, I'm not so crazy about, but me, I'm pretty good with. It only took me 38 years to get to that point.

I think this is great for a first TT. Sounds like your parents offered you many opportunities.

My TT this week is on new year's finances. And visit my Friday Photo.

amy said...

Good list. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed your blog

Laurence said...

Your list is amazing. Very good TT !!!

PS. Thanks for visiting me ! :-)

Bubba said...

Great list. Isn't it scary when kids get to be your size that fast? I know my grandma was not happy when I surpassed her height...when I was 7.

Welcome to TT...and Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by!

April said...

You're one groovy chica, Lisa. Welcome to TT, feel better soon, and travel safely!

Maryanne said...

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. Great list. I lived in a house what was inhabited by a spirit. I later found out it was my sister who attracted the ghost. She's had several since then. Last year I made her go to the Winchester Mansion with me. She was so afraid she'd get followed home by spirits, so far so good, not a one. Great list. Have a good one and get back to science. That's where all the amazing stuff is found. Toodles, Maryanne

Great first list. I also stay up too late and used to read lots of books. My new year's resolution is going to be to read at least one book a month... which doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a lot more than I read last year. :-(
In fact, I should be reading a book right now....
Thanks for visiting.

Marcia said...

Hey, thanks for stopping by. . . I tried to read your TT earlier and I just (still) can't get my screen, my eyes, and my glasses to read that color combination. I can read the rest fine. Sounds like you came up with an interesting list though.

(It was a friend from LA who served chickory in our coffee way out here in WA the other day.)

Happy Friday

Yay, visitors! Hi, y'all!

Marcia, I can't read my list very well, either. It shows up in black font when I try to edit the post - not sure why it shows up in such a light color when I actually post it. Maybe it's because of the template I chose? I'll have to work on that. I'm getting too old to want to strain my eyes to read. LOL
