Thursday Thirteen #7

Thirteen Things I'd rather be doing instead of sleeping...

1…. Reading one of the many good books sitting on my book shelf!

2.... Finish editing my current WIP! Even if it's just a chapter!

3.... Watching a good movie with my husband.

4.... Actually, watching anything good on TV with my husband.

5.... Heck, now that I think about it... I would rather just have more time with him rather than sleeping!

6.... Catch up on some of my laundry! Cause I sure as heck can think of doing something a lot more interesting during the day.

7.... Clean my house! Oh my... I can't even tell you how my house looks right now. I hope nobody shows up for any surprise visits... not unless it's a maid offering her services for free. That would be great! :)

8.... Get some groceries... yeah, it's sad. But my fridge is empty, which is fine by me because I've been at work at all hours of the day so I always eat out. But my husband told me this morning that he lost 2 lbs. in the last couple of days. ;) I think he's trying to tell me something.

9.... I've put on a little bit of weight in the last little while... wish I had the time to go out and buy a pair of pants I can breathe in! :) Yeah, that would be great.

10.... Baking a cake, or pie, or cookies.... oh! Maybe even brownies! Mm mm. Yum.

11.... Actually having time to make a meal instead of eating out or having it made by M & M Meatshops... yeah, a lot of my dinners have been made by them! Swiss Chalet also knows us very well. Another thing I'm not proud of... if my parents knew they would pass out.

12.... Studying for Test The Nation! I have had the hardest time lately remembering anything... so maybe it's already too late to start... but I'll still give it a shot! Studying is something I definitely need to do.

13.... I'd rather be sleeping. In truth as much as I want to do all these things, I really need my sleep. Desperately! Nobody wants to talk to me when I haven't slept at least 8 hours. It's not pretty!

Happy TT everyone! What would you do if you could go without sleep?

I'm in the process of cleaning my house right now -- and we all know how I feel about housework!
Mmmmmm brownies.

amy said...

those are great motivaters for me! I love watching movies with my husband and I really would like to clean my house but I dont really know where to even start

Annie said...

I really want to be sleeping, too! There's snow outside and I just want to be back in bed in PJs!

Happy TT!

BeckyD said...

This list seriously confuses me.. I'm rather be sleeping than doing just about anything else. LOL

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Hmm. No need to sleep? Well, then, sex and writing would be the first two things on my agenda. Really amazing sex and scenes that all but write themselves -- well, too.

But sleep... I love to sleep. I'm like my character Mitchell that way (although not quite as grumpy as he can be about it). Plus, did you see the study that proves that a good night's sleep helps you lose weight?

Happy TT!

I would rather be sleeping right now! I just got done teaching a four hour tech class and it sucks the life out of me.

I'd rather be home writing. :)

Sorry I messed up your links on the front. I got Enter happy and pressed it too soon. hehe

Julia said...

Great list! I would like to be reading without sleep or do some cleaning. But since am night owl, I haven't slept but only for 4 hours today(since I was up racking my brain for an idea for Thursday Thirteen on my blog) and I really need to take that nap :)

Happy Thursday Thirteen! I hope you have a wonderful day! Here is Mine! - 13 Bloggers I like to Visit

Hmm.. I love sleeping.. I don't think I'd want to do anything else. ;)

Lisa said...

I would read, no question.

happy TT!

Di said...

If I could go without sleep, I would be superwoman!!! Sleep is my is what keeps me from accomplishing all that I want to accomplish each day! But I also LOVE sleep, falling asleep, waking up and being able to fall back asleep, napping, etc.

Michelle said...

Unfortunately there is nothing else I'd rather do than sleep right now. Sleep is a rare commodity in my house at the moment. Of course I have a baby but still...ok maybe, I'd want to be writing something brilliant but due to the lack of sleep writing isn't coming at all. Therefore, I go back to my original statement. :-)

I'd rather sleep than a lot of that stuff! Definately sleep over clean!
I don't like to sleep, though.

Rene said...

I wish I could stay up later just to do another hour of reading, but I can't do it. Need my sleep.

Stacie said...

I need to make more time to do some of those things as well...especially reading. I miss reading! Great TT, I played too.

Argh, I wish people didn't have to sleep. I mean, I love how a good night's sleep feels, but I hate we basically sleep away a third of our lives. I'd do a lot more writing, a lot more reading, a lot more hubby cuddling, a lot more playing with the kitties, a lot more Harley riding, heck a lot more of everything I love. :)
