Thursday Thirteen: My Place

Good morning my loves. As we all know by now, the ‘official’ Thursday Thirteen site is gone but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop doing it!! So if you do Thursday Thirteen at your blog, keep doing it! 🙂

Before I get to my list…Can I just say how ah-mazing Hugh Laurie looked last night at the People’s Choice Awards? And ohmygod, his accent is just…too…much. I was giggling and drooling at the TV, which amused my dad to no end.

As if you can’t tell, I’m incredibly giddy with the fact that I am taking solid steps to move out by June…so here are thirteen things I’ll be able to do once I have my own place that I can’t do in a house with my family.

1 — Get a PUPPY!! That’s right…I’ve been wanting a puppy SO bad…and once I move out, I can finally get one!

2 — Go to sleep in just a tank top and undies. Or nekkid.

3 — Have a liquor cabinet filled with drinks *I* like and actually be able to OPEN them.

4 — Watch TV as loud as I want.

5 — Have sex in my bed. And…well, everywhere else in the apartment.

6 — Be able to get up 15 minutes before I have to leave the house without worrying about making sure anyone else wakes up.

7 — Wake up at 3:00 am when I have insomnia and actually be able to move around the place.

8 — Play music 24 hours a day.

9 — Come home to a QUIET apartment after a long day at work.

10 — Talk on my cell phone…I know, what a concept right?

11 — Watch porn on the big screen. Probably nekkid.

12 — Get a pint of my favorite ice cream, eat out of it with a spoon and find it at the same place I left it in the freezer next time I want to eat it.

13 — Be…ya know, normal. (Well, as normal as I get)

If you don’t live alone (If you have kids, live with family or roomies), what are some restrictions on your actions that you would be free to do in your own space? What ELSE should I do once I have my own place? 😈

    I’ve never lived alone… so I dunno… I mean I lived on my own by the time I was 16 years old, but it was always with roommates… then I had my daughter and took her with me when I left her father. That was as close to alone as I ever got.

    I’m gonna live vicariously through you…. you’re gonna have to tell me everything about living alone…

    I’ve lived Single raising my daughter on my own… that came with a nice sort of freedom… no one to answer to but my daughter.. no having to explain or argue because I got home an hour later than planned… no one getting all jealous because some guy made me laugh… only making dinner for myself (when my daughter was still nursing anyway) Laundry didn’t add up as quickly…

    Being a single mom isn’t the end of the world… it just means you have to pay to have someone watch your child so you can work. I don’t understand the Taboo of it all.

    And because I have such a wonderful fiance after 4 years of raising my daughter on my own.. I suppose I won’t get to understand that taboo.. which is definately not a bad thing.

    It’s been so long; I can hardly remember. Probably I’d dance around the house with my music blaring. Oh….I know, I would only cook what I wanted to eat. Yeah. That would be awesome!

    I’ve lived by myself a couple of times. It has it’s good points and it’s bad points.


    -You don’t have to clean up after anyone else. Unless you have invited them over.
    -You can be naked anywhere in the place
    -You only have people that YOU want there
    -and all the rest of the things you said LOL
    -It’s nice and peaceful
    -No one else to eat all your food

    -It can be lonely
    -No one to help with the bills
    -When you are sick there is no one there to run to the store
    -No one to blame things on but yourself (joking)

    Sounds like some fun New Year’s Resolutions or else a party list!

    Living alone is delightful! Why can’t you sleep neekid now? Don’t you have a door on your bedroom? LOL

    A little piece of advice on the puppy…..make sure you will be able to spend time with said pup! They can be very destructive if they are left alone too long!

    Seems to be a common theme of being loud and nekkid.

    Works for me 🙂

    I just realized I’ve never lived alone. Always had roommates family or wife under the same roof.

  • C-L-T January 8, 2009, 10:51 am

    Yeah so I live with me 3 brothers in the main house, while our mum lives in the upstairs house. So… it’s like a zoo with dudes.


  • LivingWicked January 8, 2009, 12:14 pm

    You can do EVERYTHING nekkid. Like

    Talk to me on the phone
    IM me
    Lay on the couch
    Order Pizza
    PAY for it

    It’s totally lame, but one of the big reasons I don’t ever want to move in with my mom again is that I want to arrange the dishes in my cabinets to my own taste.

  • Cassie January 8, 2009, 1:29 pm

    not to be a spoil-sport, but in an apt., you won’t be able to listen to the TV as loud as you want OR get a puppy (unless you pay a pet deposit–if they are allowed).

    BUT….the rest of it is all do-able!!!!! lol

  • Jaime January 8, 2009, 1:48 pm

    The TT site is GONE?!?!!! WTF happened to it?!

    I’m excited to move in with Sarah, ’cause she has a cat. I’ve always wanted a cat.
    I won’t be able to sleep in my undies anymore since you never know when the 5 year old is going to decide to barge in, but it’s worth it to spend time with him for a few months.
    Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up and not have to worry about anyone but yourself? It’s my dream. What a sad, sad dream I have.

  • bethany January 8, 2009, 3:32 pm

    I do all of that…

    Sometimes it gets lonely… I’m guessing that’s where the dog comes into play… and the porn… Though, not together.. unless you’re into that sort of thing…

    Sure, I have a cat… but he seems to have his own life… and a girlfriend, as well. He only likes me for the food.

    Got to used to having the house to just me and my husband. Now my daughter and her fiance live with us temporarily. Once I get my house back, I will look forward to being able to walk around nekkid, having noisy sex whenever and whereever we choose, get more closet space, and more bookshelf space!

  • Bumbles January 8, 2009, 8:43 pm

    Oh what a terrific list! Last year we had an addition put on our house so we moved in with my in-laws for 6 months. We could not WAIT to get back into our own space. We felt like guests for the whole time and that sucked. I missed watching whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, sleeping in, having however many beers I wanted, leaving things messy, and alone time most of all. Our love life took a big hit too – it was nice to get that back 😳

    I lived alone for a while and loved and hated it both. It was great to do what ever I wanted, but it did get lonly at times

    I am glad you are finally getting to a point where you can move.

    Happy for you! Hope you find a place that’s just right for you. Happy T13!
