Thursday 13: What I like 'bout me...

I'm Recycling my TT from last week because I did this entire post one week too early. Sorry if you already read it. I'm going camping today and blogger is being funny anyway. I'm thinking that blogger just doesn't have the stuff to take care of us anymore. I hope I don't get into trouble for that. I'll be back on Saturday and visit everyone who leaves me a link on the linky. Thanks! Oh and if you decide to break into my house, please clean the bathrooms. Thanks!

Thirteen Things about What I like about me...

I was torn about doing a TT this week, 'cuz I really need to be doing other stuff...but I couldn't help here I am.

1…. I like that after all these years, I don't look my age.

2…. I like that after all these years, I don't act my age either.

3…. I like that I've matured enough to not care what others think about me.

4…. I like that I'm brave enough to not follow the crowd.

5…. I like that in this mess that is my home, I know where to find where I left my stuff.

6…. I like that my memory still for the most part works very well...yeah so what if I've got lists everywhere...I know where my lists are.

7…. I like that I have a green thumb and can grow stuff. I've figured out where pretty much all my plants want to live...that's important or they'll die.

8…. I like that I'm a helpful person. I help people even if they don't ask for help. Sometimes that backfires...but I don't take it personally.

9…. I like that I'm cheap and resourceful. I found that some stuff I want is going on clearance this Sat and while it was already a good deal, it will be an even better deal then...SCORE!

10…. I like that I can do so much myself. I'm mechanically inclinded and not afraid to dig into something to figure out how it works...especially when it's broken. Saved lots of $$ on my vacuume that way.

11…. I like that I'm crafty. I've made all of Darly's Halloween costumes until this year and she wants to be a cat because someone gave her a black catsuit leotard. So I'll be sewing a costume for myself instead. Usually I come up with a costume for me from my closet.

12…. I like that I know all the words to my favorite songs and can sing them. I'm not saying it sounds's just accurate.

13…. And I like that I am loved by those who matter to me the most.

  1. It's always a good thing to be comfortable with yourself.

    Happy TT!

  2. What a great list--it is refreshing to see someone openly "liking" themselves!

    My TT is up!

  3. You are a VERY helpful person, and I'm so grateful for that!

    Where do you get off calling your house messy? Do you have a house I haven't seen?

  4. You were reading Denise's mind!(did you visit the TT hub?) I love positive lists, I wish I was technically inclined, I am very limited but I have help at home. I have a bit of a green thumb but I keep trying! Happy TT :)

  5. Well I like that you made a list this week. And I like that you visited my T13

  6. Great list! :) I think this is the TT challenge for next week, but YAY!

  7. Great list! You have many things to be proud of!!! Number 13... is so true... and so important!

    Happy T13! My list's up!

  8. Wow, great list! Wonderful to see such a positive attitude.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Great list! It's good to feel good about yourself.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Wow! I guess you are covered for two weeks! LOL

    Actually the challenge was for next week, but that's OK...because it's not WHEN you did it that counts. What counts is that you can come up with 13 things that you like about yourself...that's the important thing!

    Thanks for participating. :)

  11. Yay for you! I like that you're very friendly :)

  12. Great list! I will be doing Denise's challenge of this topic for next week's TT. I will have to think long and hard to come up with 13 though.

  13. I find that as I get older what's most important is what I think.
    Like your double whammy idea.
    Golly I need to make a call list myself!
    Take care,

  14. would that be a Thursday 26?

  15. leaving a comment for BOTH your tt's this week. thanks for stopping by today. mr linky isn't working for me:( so no one is commenting but they all hav stopped by i see.
    have a good weekend.

  16. Your page didn't load for me until just now. Hmph. I love this idea. It is so useful every once in a while to self pat on the back.

  17. That's a great idea for a post! Thanks for visiting me (Baggage That Goes with Mine)

  18. I loved reading all that about you! You have some great qualities about yourself!

  19. You go girl...with all the experiences you've had growing up (why should I be surprised that you don't care what others think about you.) I think you are a very confident, loyal and creative person.

  20. Love the idea of making your own costumes. I might have a go at it this year!
    Have a great weekend!

  21. I don't look or act my age either. I think age is all in the mind. And besides, I refuse to get older!

    The Pink Diary

  22. I wish tht I was more mechanically inclined. Good for you!

  23. Will it count if I send someone to break into your house and clean the bathrooms??

    Great list-even the second time around!

  24. I'm not sure if I look my age. I definitely don't act my age.

    "In case one of us gets into a bad conversation, we should have a signal that you're in trouble so the other one can get us out of it."
    "How old are you?"
    "Thirty-six. What's the signal? How about this? Chicken wing? No, no, I got a better one. Head patting."

  25. Ha! Bone. No, it's Tippytoe Lemontree

  26. I really liked this week's assignment; I feel like I got to know some people much better! Great list :-)
