Thursday 13

Thirteen Things to update you on Carol's past posts

1. Remember my post on blog addiction. Well, I am not doing too badly at the moment. I was up to 31.25 %, but have dropped. Whew!

18.75 %

My weblog owns 18.75 % of me.
Does your weblog own you?

2. Then there were my Excerpts from a Life series about having a crush on a boy called Chevy. Actually, the whole ordeal wrecked havoc on my pubescent mind and body. I developed an eating disorder after losing the 80 lbs trying to win him. I lost and regained weight several times over the following years.

3. You probably recall my brain pattern but guess what? It changed!

Your Brain's Pattern

You have a tempered, reasonable way of thinking.

You tend to take every new idea in, and meld it with your world view.

For you, everything is always changing. Each moment is different.

Your thinking process tends to be very natural - with no beginnings or endings.

What Pattern Is Your Brain?

4.I still am not a glamour model!

5. "I am a scheduler", I admitted but somehow I still manage to be terribly unorganized in spite of it. I am trying out a new method of fixing my to do list and will fill you in on it at some future date.

6. Overcoming anxiety is still a problem area in my life although not as bad as it was when I wrote this post. I still am being too hard on myself and my self esteem still suffers as a result. I will suceed though and you will hear about it!

7. Then there was my grand showing at the Blog Olympics which were followed with bi-weekly Blog Olympics Training Camps. My own rigorous problems with keeping up with schedules prevented me from keeping up my silver medal standing! Sigh...

8. Well, no pandemic...yet! Right now, I am doing my best to prevent any bacterial or viral transmission by not touching my ears, nose or mouth, am washing my hands more and trying to keep a bigger stock of food supplies but have not been that sucessful so far. I have not caught anybody's cold yet but there is a woman at work with a nasty one so I will get to see if my precautions work.

9. I'm still bipolar but I am not alone. Another woman from church phoned today. She is bipolar as well. She pointed out to me that I have it good with a husband, children, a good friend and a job.

10. I give my first speech this month at Toastmasters. I have a great idea for it but still have to plan, write, practise then, gulp, give it.

11. Petey is still alive!

12. I have done the Thursday 13 before, y'know!

13. I was able to rejoice in being a Mom today. My Middle Daughter handed me her Language Art writing folder that was marked 100% Perfect! She had written a fantastic poem and story for it. My Son replied, " but she's not as good as me, right?" because he likes to write science fiction stories and comics. Then the Eldest had her art work displayed in the Grade 12 Art Show this evening. Did I tell you that she is going into Art School in the Fall? I am very pleased to have raised creative offspring.

Seeing as I've been missing a lot of posts lately due to work, i probably am still in control of my blogtime...hehe. Missed you at Thankful Thurdsday. Hope to see you next week.

Barbara said...

Hey Carol - I thought you did the Thankful Thursdays. I remember all those posts 'cept a couple, I've been reading here quite a while.

Carol said...

Dear Chrixean,
Yeah, you caught me with the compet...I mean, hi how ya doing?
Actually, I'm not signing up to any one weekday blog activity at the moment, except for Fridays of course. I am totally uncommitted, in more than just one way. So you might see me next Thankful Thursday or Thursday 13 or maybe not. Yikes, I'm almost fickle.

Barbara, Nope!
