Thursday’s Thirteen: trying it out this week


13 Things about Oraeley


I’m blogging instead of excising and may later feel guilty about it.

I don’t feel weird about bringing in the trash bins from the side of the road in my pjs and bathrobe though I know people might second glance me.

I eat icecream at night as if it were calorie free.

I can’t spell but write anyway–with much help from so that no one will notice.

I have only one child and feel swamped.

All my friends live online, and I’ve found that stay-at-home-mom is more common than I previously thought.

img_3794small.jpgDespite attempts to not do so, I constantly compare myself to other people, and take advice that I don’t really agree with deep inside.

My hair doesn’t have highlights because I know I wouldn’t take time to get touch ups.

I think of going back to college but have no idea when I would do it.

The life I live is a dream that I didn’t know I had.

In my opinion baby toes are adorable; I photograph them far too often.

I went to college but have forgotten a significant number of scientific facts and math formulas that I supposedly committed to memory.

Sometimes I wish I had a “real” job despite having made the decision to stay at home with my children (at least until they’re in school!)

Opinions on this meme? I know many of you participate, but am I doing too many memes already? Scroll down or click here if you missed this morning’s post. :)

    nice list there for your first TT, mine’s up too now!

    I totally agree with the baby toes, and I have also forgotten most of the stuff I learned at uni doing pharmacology.. I wonder why I even bothered!

    I like this one – “The life I live is a dream that I didn’t know I had.” This is very true for me too, I am only 24 (today! :D) and I am married to a wonderful guy and have two beautiful boys. I never would have imagined my life would be this way by now!

    I love your list, Sweetie. Let’s see . . . My favorite fact is:

    I can’t spell but write anyway–with much help from so that no one will notice.

    I think you write very well, indeed, and am glad that you do!

    Great list! Sorry I haven’t commented in a few days. We took a little mini-vacation to Phoenix to enjoy the sun and spring training baseball.

  5. If you are implying that ice cream is not, in fact, devoid of calories then LA LA LA LA I can’t hear you LA LA LA LA LA.

    Love the dryer photos, btw!
