Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Twisted Cinderella

1. I am a little stressed that I STILL haven't bought any presents for anyone

2. I can't buy anything until I get into town when Grandpa Grumpy and Grandma Great take me in

3. I haven't put up one decoration.

4. I am putting them up on Sunday. This was as soon Prince Charming would let me put them up.

5. I am going to go help Grandma Great clean her house today.

6. Every year she cleans and paints her entire house including all her cupboards before Christmas.

7. I have never heard of anyone else who does that. She tires herself out every year preparing for Christmas.

8. I have no intention of being that tired on Christmas morning.

9. We have finally made plans for Christmas morning. Grandpa Grumpy and Grandma Great are coming over to our house before we get up the Little Princess. We will open all our presents here and then go to her house.

10. Little Princess gets to open more presents at Grandma Great's house and then we will have Christmas Dinner with her. Woohoo I don't gotta cook Christmas dinner!!!

11. Woohoo 12 more days until I get to see my best friend again.

12. I have actually emailed and talked to an old friend. I was really impressed with our conversation.

13. Even Prince Charming was impressed with the things that she said. It was a short conversation but Prince Charming said, "It took 2 years but it looks like the whole thing is over". Meaning that the "fight" is over. Heck I haven't been made for 1 years and 11 months.

13 1/2. In posting this week, I accidentally deleted last week's Thursday Thirteen. Oops.

I have not bought a single present either. I must get out on Saturday and buy them all!

I need to put up the tree and the outside decorations Saturday also!

I admire your Great Grandma's house cleaning and painting! Wow!

My Thirteen is up here if you would like to stop by for a visit.

Karin said...

Well, at least you don't have to cook right? :) You'll get there. That's the problem with Christmas - it should be fun and joyful and it turns into stressful and harried. *sigh*

I can't believe Grandma cleans and paints every year for C-mas...seems like she's going a little overboard! Heehee!

Btw, my 13 are up as well.

Jennifer said...

Oh, and please come visit my TT! :)

Jennifer said...

Not having my shopping done would WAY stress me! I hope G'ma and G'pa come through for you!!
I can't imagine painting cabinets every year! That is like, my least favorite job to do, in the whole world!!

Just D said...

Yikes - cleans AND PAINTS every year? Man, I'm such a slacker... Happy holidays, and my 13 is up!

I just decorated the tree last night. I usually decorate the first saturday of december. Seems like everything's on delay this year!

Don't fret! There's still plenty of time!

Running2Ks said...

Grandma Great sounds amazing. I hope she can take some time to relax. I'm glad you are helping her.

My 13 are up :)

Jen said...

Wow, painting the whole house? That's impressive! My house could sure use it, but it's not gonna happen...

My 13 is up:

I can understand the cleaning, but painting the whole house?? WOW!!! That's too much work before Christmas!!! There's too much stress as there is, to add that too it!! Yikes!

Chickadee said...

Happy Thursday 13!

I can't believe that Christmas is in less than 2 weeks. Why does December seem to go faster than any other time of the year?

I hope you don't get too stressed over the shopping.

My 13 are up!

Bone said...

You have 13 and a half. I start struggling for ideas around #5 :-)

Here's my thirteen.

I'm sure you will have lots of fun once the shopping begins.

'Tis the season to be stressed, that's for sure. Don't worry. It'll all come together. It always does. ;o)
