Thursday Thirteen #20

(Ooh a purse! I love purses!!!!) Anyway, it's moving time! Not for me, but for my sister, but same thing. So we're headed to D.C. this weekend to help her move from her tiny studio apartment to her newly-purchased condo not too far away. Yippee! So, here are:

13 Things We "Plan" to do This Weekend and Hopefully We Will Cram it All In (don't you just love "to do" lists?)
1. (And probably the most important) Do not freeze to death.

2. Move her stuff of course. She is getting some mover-man-hands to help but only for 3 hours so we're gonna make them get the big stuff so my dad doesn't break his back.

3. Move what the mover-men didn't get to.

4. Traipse around her old "hood" and hit some of her favorite spots before she leaves. One of these places is a little watering hole in Dupont Circle that we hope to imbibe in. Cheers to the old hood!

5. Partake in the fine dining that is Washington D.C. Of course, it's no New York City, but it's close.

6. Stake out some of the digs in her new neighborhood...grocery store, coffee shops, restaurants, watering holes, nail places.

7. Try out exercise equipment at the "fitness center" at the new place. Get some treadmill time in. I have to! Must not fall off wagon. Must not decide there's no time. Must make time.

8. Blog? At least once. Hopefully. Wait. Will there be internet at the new place? I forgot! No internet! Bugger bugger!

9. Paint her old apartment back to white.

10. Find a new church near the new place and hopefully go to mass on Sunday.

11. Call the boys back home (hubby and little boy) a million zillion times secretly hoping they will desperately be needing mom's expertise and mothering prowess (yeah right!). Will long to hear longing in their voices.

12. Take lots and lots of pictures.

13. Turn clocks ahead! Wah! We lose an hour! I love that hour!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Uggh, at least you guys have a good attitude about moving. Not liking it myself, I've done it all my life. By the end of this year I'll probably be moving again. Lasted one year this time. Good luck to your sister. How nice of you to help her move.

To do lists can be interesting.... and they can help someone remember something they need to do!!! :)

Don't remind me about the time change though. I don't like that :D

Take care!

Hope you have a three or four day weekend...(except for the 11 stuff)

Maybe you will have some good eye candy mover men..ha ha!
No blogging? Arg! You are messing up my pattern woman, my daily routine will just be a mess!
Grab a great purse from one of the street vendors, they make great knockoffs there!
have a great time!

Here's hoping you get it all done--sounds like it could lots of fan.

Good luck with your sister's move! I hope all goes smoothly! Checking out the fitness centre will probably provide you with a nice break!

Happy T13. :)

Looks like a lot! The moving part alone! I'll be interested to know how many of those others you manage to accomplish. Good luck!

Moving is so hard but it also holds so many new and exciting things, too.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Instead of making time for the treadmill, why not walk everywhere you go (assuming it's safe)? Kill two birds with one stone AND get to really see the city. DC's cool.

Best wishes for a smooth move!

Hope you have a great time with your sister!

TOTALLY understand the Internet withdrawal.
