Am I really doing a Thursday Thirteen????

Thirteen Things about Heather's Household

1…. We have two children at home (my husband has four
other children besides ours and five grandchilren)

2.... We have two dogs - Luke and Leia (yes, as in THAT
Luke and Leia!)

3.... We have fish named General Grevious and Mace
Windu (you don't name your fish?)

4.... We have large goldfish but Leia ate one in the
middle of the night (VERY LARGE FISH!)

5.... I have two turtles - one named Chuck and one
whose name hasn't stuck yet

6.... We have a guinea pig named Reeses

7.... I have lots of guppies - I give a lot away

8... I live in a three bedroom townhouse less than 1100
square feet

9.... I have too much clutter

10.... The dogs sleep on our bed sometimes (ok, a lot)

11... My desk is buried - I need to clean it today

12. I have many many many books

13. Almost none of my furniture was purchased - most
of it Ron got from people moving out and leaving it
behind - hence the "eclectic" decor we have.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

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!

Your household sounds interesting. I would have that many animals if The Captain would allow it. We currently have custody of two grandchildren, 1 dog, 1 cat and a multitude of spiders. lol

We used to name our fish...but usually after King Arthur and the round table. LOL

How come the turtles are not named Anakin and Amidala? LOL

I love Star Wars, I want to own an R2D2 unit! Happy TT!

We had a Pacu named Cartman, but he got old so we replaced him with Cartman, Jr. (husband named him...)

That's quite a housefull. And yes, I've heard of folks naming their fish - I think it all depends on quantity of fish and ability to tell them apart ;-)

Happy TT13

When I was 16 I had two fish named Arlene and Ethel. Ethel ate Arlene. LOL

Our furniture is the same way. It makes for a homey feeling though, doesn't it?

Thanks for visiting my TT. I enjoyed yours!

We have four poodles, a cat, and one beta fish. The fish's name is Mortimer. That reminds me, it's time to change his water.

I'm a confirmed "buried desk" kinda person myself. Glad to know ya.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Sounds like my house! One of my dogs recently passed away, but I have one rott mix named Book 'Em (as in, Danno!). I have three aquariums full of fishies, but I only named my Oscars in my big tank. They are Oscar Madison, Oscar Meyer and Oscar De La Hoya :)

We also have hamsters. I can never keep count because they keep appearing 6 or so at a time :)

Happy TT

Sounds like someone is a Star Wars fan! We had a kitten named Darth Vader once but he ran away.

Your house sounds like a bustling, fun place!!!

Thank you for visiting my TT.

I love books, we have too many. I am running out of space to put them.

At 3:41 PM, Blogger Tink said...

I'm with you on a lot of those: clutter, books, need to clean...
My TT teaches a geography (and a bit of history) lesson about The Netherlands.

The clutta, the clutta...I just can't overcome it...Although, I'll find room for more books.

Have a fun TT!

Between the books, the clutter issue, and the could be talkin' about my place! LoL

And, of course! we named the fish (a convict cichlid - Bad Andy - 'cause he ate all his tankmates!)

Very nice Thursday 13! Wow, you have a lot of pets!! (more then us, and I think we have a lot...)

The book addiction is hard, isn't it? I really have to work at not letting books totally take over the house!
