Thursday Thirteen #31

Oy I have to figure out how to un-skeeve myself out after killing the LARGEST spider I've ever seen crawling up the arm of my couch (ugh I want to throw up just thinking about it!!! Blech!!!) and now I have to try to stop imagining one crawling into my hair from behind me while doing my TT, so here's my lovely distraction:


1. Watch a shuttle lift-off, live and in-person from Kennedy Space Center. None of this "let's see if we can see it from the backyard"-stuff, which, like yesterday didn't work out at all because of the clouds.

2. Go to Ireland. I've so always wanted to go, and with a last name like O'Sullivan, doesn't it just seem silly not to?

3. Take a cruise to Alaska.

4. Go whale watching. Maybe I can do that on the cruise and knock out two in one.

5. Go camping and rafting. I've done these two before, but my husband hasn't, so I want to make sure it's on the list so I get to it again with him.

6. Volunteer for disaster relief. I've raised money by organizing a walk, and I've donated to disasters, but it's just different being on the front lines. Helping. Really helping. This one I'd want the kids to do, too.

7. Go to Australia.

8. And New Zealand. With all that plush green country.

9. And Germany again. I went once in college for an overseas study but I am dying to go back.

10. Show my husband and babies the Indian Reservation where my relatives live. I want him to meet my Godmother and my cousins and feel the spiritual connection and wholeness that I feel when I am there.

11. Watch in person: the World Cup and the summer and winter Olympics. Preferably in another country. If I just do one of these, I'll be happy.

12. Learn how to knit booties. (By November).

13. Open a tea room. And this one is a must.

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!

I laughed and laughed when I saw your "peeps." I saw one T13 with adorable knitted toys; it almost made me want to learn. Good luck with the booties and with the tea room. Looks like you're going to have your hands full, so I hope you WILL stay in touch with the Native American heritage. I think it would be so centering.

Congratulations on being Pregnant! I hope that you get to do all those things and then some!

Happy TT!

I always think it would be awesome to watch the Olympic games in person. Especially the opening ceremonies...I'm kind of a "weeping willow", but it always gets me every time I see all of those athletes so excited to be there. I can't even imagine how hard they've worked and it's really inspiring!

Happy TT. Great list!

I think whale watching would be awesome!

Ireland and Alaska are on my list too. Someday. I could pass on the winter olympics, too cold, but the other sporting events are perfect to get to someday.

Now, tell me about this indian reservation

What a great to do list, things for yourself and for others too!

Hoping for a great little boy for you. The world needs more tea rooms. The one out in our neck of the woods closed because rent increased ridiculously - and we had only just discovered it. Sigh. I would love to visit England.
