Thirteen Things about THE MEDIAN SIB

1. I'm starting my FIRST Thursday Thirteen on a Friday. I hope no one holds that against me. I didn't want to wait until next Thursday to get started.

2. I haven't been to the mall a single time this Christmas season.

3. I still have lots of Christmas shopping to do...maybe tomorrow.

4. I've thought I might make some frozen meals for my two married children to help them on those hectic evenings after work when they don't feel like preparing a meal. Just a thought - I don't know if they'd really like that for a Christmas gift or not. I'll have to decide soon.

5. A friend told me the other night that she had told everyone in her family to contribute to a charity in her name - and she told them the charity she preferred. She said she felt really good about the decision and her kids were happy with it, too. I know my daughter has already bought me a gift for this year. So I can't switch and ask for a charity donation instead. Next year, though, I'm going to ask for everyone who wants to give me a gift to donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in my name instead. I like that idea.

6. I'm a teacher - a reading specialist - and we don't get out of school until December 22nd - which is too close to Christmas!

7. However, we don't go back to school until January 9th. So I'll enjoy extra time off after Christmas.

8. My two granddaughters are the lights of my life. They're 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 - and I KNOW I'd better not leave off those half years!

9. I'm glad I found the Thursday Thirteen links because this will be a good way to get to know people and to make myself THINK about what's going on in my life.

10. I was in an all-day meeting today with other reading specialists in my county, and it was mostly a very good day. I learned a lot from one speaker, in particular.

11. I think I've got the best job in the world. Except for the pay, being a reading specialist is wonderful.

12. I married in 1969 and divorced in 1997. However, my ex and I are now back together again and have been working on all the issues that led to the divorce. Things look very promising for us.

13. Referring back to #12, we're looking at house plans, and that is a lot of fun!
