Thursday 13 / the letter 'I'



Thursday 13 - This week is the letter 'I'

1. Internet - I spend a lot of time on the Internet. I have six blogs, a store, I do contesting daily, am now hooked on Entrecard, and chat with lots of my friends, and do memes and MySpace, Phew!

2. Insects - I am terrified of most Insects and creepy crawlies. I can deal with flys and ants (easy to get rid of) but most bugs just freak me out!

3. Independent - Up until the past year, I have always been a very independent lady. I like making my own money, and tend to be a bit of a type A personality when needed to be. Yes, ladies, sweet Sandy can be a B----h when needed, and I guarantee you I will win.

4. Income - Not having a two income household any longer is really really hurting us. I still haven't figured out how to live this way. I've never had to before. He gets paid, and after bills,and doctor co pays and gas back and forth to Atlanta to doctors every week, is killing us. Sometimes there is no money left for groceries, and it totally sucks. I went to some food banks last week, a first for me, and really felt like crap for days.

5. Inspiration - I love anything and anyone who is an inspiration to me. I have been inspired by the kindness of so many of you, and your blogs. It amazes me every day at the friendships I've made online. I need inspiration and positivity right now, and you are giving it to me in spades!

6. Ice Cream - I love ice cream and milkshakes, both very detrimental to my diet right now. My favorite is Butter Pecan. Do you have a Sonic near you? They are serving full sized milkshakes of your flavor choice every night from 7pm til midnight for 99 cents,Great deal! Try the pineapple. Yummy!

7. Irish - I am part Irish, part Scottish, and part Cherokee Indian. In other words, I am a mutt.

8. Shaved Ice - I am a sucker for shaved ice. Love the bubblegum and tutti fruiti flavors.

9. Ivory - the color of every drab wall in my apartment, Ugh!

10. i-Tunes - I love i-Tunes. Wish I had a lot of money to download whatever I wanted, but oh well, maybe one day! Did you know they offer a free singles download every week?

11. IKEA- one of my favorite 'window shopping' stores

12. IZEA- They own both SocialSpark and PeyPerPost, with who help my income, so I really like them, and they always pay on time.

13. The most Important "I" word is simple "I", or just me. Take care of your health and your body. I didn't and now I am paying for it big time. I is my new best friend, because in the end, it will just be I, no one else. Live for today, and do something every single day to make that day special for you!

Not playing this week, but wanted to comment. You made me laugh out loud with the "b" thing. All us women can be one of those at times. Have a great day sweetie. Big hug. :)

What a great list! And I can certainly identify with the Irish & independent and internet items, not to mention ice cream! Many sympathies from me on the income issue -- trust that this will pass. Good luck!

Joyce said...

Hi, Sandy!
Thanks so much for stopping by my Thursday 13. I so hope your income issues will be resolved soon. :)

Amy Ruttan said...

Tiredmom said...

You must have quick internet and a great computer. I'm at the end of a line so my internet service leaves a lot to be desired so I can't "see" as much as I'd like to. Try not to let the food bank thing get to you. Most of us need at little help at some point in our lives. I'm sure you have given your share, now it is time to take.

Happy TT, Hope you'll visit my 34th T13...Weird Word Verifications" at The Cafe.

An Incredible and Inspired list! I can certainly Identify the Inspiration... though marks deducted for "S"haved Ice... perhaps ICE, SHAVED would have been better...

Picking nits, aren't I? :)

Betty said...

I like you TT - 13 things about you that begin with the letter I. When I did that letter I picked as one of my words ice as I hate to hear people chew on ice. Thank you for visiting me.

Rebecca said...

O.k., I'm having a hard enough time with one blog. You have six? Holy cow!

Angie said...

I can't believe how many blogs you have! I can barely manage my one little blog. :) Thanks for stopping by. Yours all look great!

Meju said...

Loved your list! I wish you well!

Change is very hard. We went to a one income family and it's hard even without your challenges. I am sorry you felt bad at the food bank. We often grow extra veggies and things and leave them at the bank. We've been in the place where we've needed help. The food is there to help you. Don't be ashamed. Some day soon you'll be their biggest donor.

Great list! Tight money is really tough, especially right now. Hang in there.

Chris said...

I love iTunes, too. If I won the lottery, I would have a lot of fun, there. And that bruise from the IV is a monster! I am a "hard stick" so I have had some of my own bruises.

Thanks for visiting my T13, have a great day!
