thursday thirteen #57 (#3)

Thirteen Things I Overheard in my Life This Week

1. "I do not have a cole." Spoken by my son with a stuffy nose. And by the way, he does have a cold.

2. "I'm raising my grade, Mom." Spoken by my daughter when she brought home "D" number two. Uh, hello?

3. "Yeah, honey, in just a minute..." Spoken by my husband while playing video games. Need I tell you how many hours passed?

4. "It's easy to keep her happy - just give her some garbage." Spoken by various members of my family when I retrieved two old bottles from my husband's grandma's house. 1950's Vat 69 whisky bottle (empty - darn...haha) and an old Moxie cola bottle that is being listed for $19.99 on ebay last I checked. The reason I picked this Thursday Thirteen header.

5. "Hold you mommy." Spoken by my son with arms raised. I used to say to him (and my daughter) "Do you want to walk or do you want me to hold you?" So it's hold you when they want to be held. Melt my heart...

6. "BOOOO...." Spoken by my family when Barry Bonds came to the plate at the baseball game. First time I ever booed anyone (and I still felt a twinge of guilt) but it felt good.

7. "Oh, Mom, do I have to come home? I want to stay." Spoken by my daughter when I went to pick her up from her dad's. This is after she cried her eyes out when she had to go. My heart hurts for her in times like this. Feel like she's paying for my mistakes. Oh Lord, cover her with your mercy.

8. "**ZERBERT**" I've tried to put the sound into words and failed miserably. This was done by the 22 month old I watch. Hilarious!

9. "I love you." Spoken by my friend to me, the day before she died.

10. "I love you." Spoken by my husband, in support of me when dealing with #9.

11. "Life is a highway, I'm gonna ride it all night wong..." Sang by my son, over and over and over and over...

12. "The Crocodile Hunter has died..." From the news.

13. "ZZZZZ...." My husband snoring on the couch as I typed this. Woohoo, it's midnight. Officially Thursday. I can post! Working tomorrow, without internet access. :(

Happy TT. 2 cents said...

I am sorry about the loss of your friend. And #7 on your list made me sad. It must be difficult to be a child in that situation. Number 5 on your list made me smile.

Kailani said...

That's great that you're so aware of the things happening around you!

Lily said...

Number 5 made me smile and my heart melt too. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

Tracie said...

Great Thursday Thirteen. I love that you collected garbage, oh, I mean collectable glass-containers. My husband would be very proud of you. So would his whole junk-collecting family. Are you going to sell thm on ebay?

Barb said...

I'm commenting on your previous post, too, since good old blogger is at it again. I'm surprised I got into the comments on THIS post.

It gave me a chill when I read what Alma did before she died, raising her arms and talking about the beauty of what she was seeing. That's like witnessing a miracle.

And I love your TT post today. It used to aggravate me to death to hear my husband snore. But years ago I read a letter in a Dear Abby column. A woman was talking about why she missed her recently deceased husband. She said she'd give anything in the world to hear him snore again. I've never looked at it as an annoyance since I read that. I use earplugs, but I'm very thankful he's laying there snoring away.

Are they EVER going to get your internet issue resolved? I don't know how you can stand it. I'd be lost lost lost.

You're sounding better every day and I'm glad of that.

First of all I just want to say "Hold you". I heard a lot of heartache in your thirteen. Hope it helps, knowing someone cares.
