Thursday 13

it's more than a meme, it's a microcosm

Thirteen things about me
brought to you by the letter M



01. My name is Mar or mar...(either way, it is the very same sound!)
02. Married to Mr. Mar
03. Mom to Mr17 (well, Mr18 in a few weeks)
04. Month of birth is October (a true Libra)
05. Moved to Spain in 1993 -
Update: because Mr. Mar was transferred from Germany , for a short period of time: 3-5 years... ha! Another update: we are still in Spain and loving every minute!
06. Music: I thought I liked all kind of music, until Mr17 showed me that there is a generation gap...
07. Moment in life: holding my baby boy for the first time...
08. Moment of the day: I am a morning person.
09. Miracle: Mr. Mar had a severe accident and a serious back injury in 10/05 and was about this tiny bit away from ending up on a wheelchair for life ... he could ski over Easter!
10. I am a miserable cook.
Update: but I am a wonderful hostess! Mr. Mar does the cooking on weekends and when we have guests.That's why I haven't had the chance to improve...!
11. Memes I like: TT! , wordless wednesday, photo hunt (see my buttons above)
12. I live at the Mediterranean Sea
13. Mood: happy! I am done!

Updated because you commented/asked, thanks for your interest! Happy Thursday

  2. Oh I love this Thursday Thirteen Mar...You get so much into one short sentence. THAT'S Brilliant! And I always learn something about you that I had not know before. Like, I didn't know you don;t think you are a good cook. Maybe you've written about it but if you did, I missed it
    I knew Mr. Mar's accident was serious, but I had no idea it was THAT serious...scary scary.

  3. Love it. For me, M is for may I please move to the Mediterranean too?

  7. How great is it to be able to say you live on the Mediterranean Sea...

  8. What a great idea for a Thursday Thirteen. You should do one for each letter of the alphabet.

    14. M is for Matt (that's me!)


    My TT is up!

  9. AWESOME IDEA!!!!! I like how it's sorta like the A-Z that I did! Hey.. if you followed the alphabet, you would have 26 weeks worth of T13's already planned out for you!!!! now there's an idea... each week do 13 things with letter A then B and so on!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Spain! I want to live there!

    ReplyDelete

  13. What an awesome T13. I know that you have said before that Mr. Mar cooks most of the time, but I don't think you are a miseralbe cook.
    Okay - question. Why Spain? - I know the Mr. is German...like me. I am sure I can find the anwer in your archives * grin*.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is a fun idea for a 13!

    Ooh, you can have the morning. I'll take 8pm on, if it's all the same to you?

  72. Mar.....that is what they call me sometimes short for...Marilyn.
    Am envious that you get to live on the Mediteranian Sea. Tell Mr. Mar that I just had serious back surgery in Dec. last year. I feel for him. Hope he is doing well.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love your TT.

  75. Wow, you have a lot of people in your comments! How fun!

    I bet if you were to practice, you would improve your cooking skills. I am a decent cook, but I am not gourmet.

    Thanks for visiting my T13.

    ReplyDelete
  76. A post devoted to the letter M! I had to comment, I love the letter M!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Cool. I don't know if I could come up with 13 things for K!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Just stopped back to tell you the that P plant has about 400 flowers as I write this. They are in different stage of growth, but that is a conservative estimate at this momdnt. It is AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete

  81. Fantastic! Nice to meet you!

    My children are still wee ones and I'm dreading the day that #6 happens to me.

    Since I'm a night person in Canada we're probably the most awake at the same time of the day!

    So happy to hear that Mr. Mar has recovered from his accident. Sounds like it was pretty miraculous.

    Thanks for visiting my place!
