Thursday Thirteen

Today, we do it by the numbers!

1. 45 hours, 17 minutes - time spent exercising on the Wii Fit this year.

2. 2,488 - estimated number of times I've folded towels and put them back into the closet in our house since we moved in.

3. 51 - number of books I have read so far this year. Estimated number of books read in my life time? Over 2,000. I wish I had started keeping a list sooner.

4. 78,022 - mileage on my 2003 Toyota Camry. Estimated number of miles driven in my lifetime? 366,450

5. 179 - number of games of spider solitaire I've won on this computer.

6. 8,030 - estimated number of showers I've taken at our current home. Estimated number of showers/bath in a lifetime? 16,790

7. 45 - number of Christmases I have celebrated. The next one will be 46!

8. 1,087 - number of posts on this blog.

9. 317 - number of pages of unpublished fiction I have sitting on my computer.

10. 2,300 - estimated number of non-fiction articles I have published.

11. 33,580 - estimated number of hours of TV I have probably watched in my lifetime (2 hours a day since birth, though I don't watch 2 hours of TV a day now so I hope it's less).

12. 402,460 - the number of hours I have lived (my hand-held calculator won't figure out the number of seconds; too big a number, I guess).

13. 5 - number of pairs of tennis shoes I currently own.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here. This is number 116!


  1. Scary that you could figure out the towel folding. When you look at it like that, it almost seems like a futile thing to keep doing, huh?

    and don't let those pages of unpublished fiction sit around! Go and submit -- what's the worst that happens? You say you tried?

  2. Wow, you've got lots of hours exercising and lots of time doing many other tasks. What a cool idea for a post.

  3. It's amazing when it's all added up. No wonder we all feel like it's "Groundhog Day" sometimes!

  4. 45 hours is probably more exercise than I've gotten this year. Maybe I should get wii fit.

  5. What a fun Thursday 13. #3 - Number of books you have read. I am sure that you have discovered shelfari by now... I love tracking my books there. I haven't even begun to add children's books though... either the ones that I read as a child or the ones that I have read to my children.

  6. kudos on the promotion and fun fun list sandy

  7. Wow, some of those numbers are a bit overwhelming. I would hate to figure how many times I have made a bed or done the dishes!

  8. Just invested in a Wii fit :)
    Have a great Thursday!

  9. Fun list! Almost 1100 posts ... amazing! My 2000 Explorer has just under 59,000 miles on it currently. Hopefully it will last another decade and still have less than 100,000 miles ;-)

    Thanks for visiting my 13 at Happily Retired Gal. I've also shared at Sacred Ruminations ... just because ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  10. #1 is awesome!!!! i need to get a wii. Happy TT.


  11. Wow, Anita---that's a really impressive number of articles to have published. You should be very proud of that number!

  12. Wow, that's a lot of numbers! It's great that you have had so many non-fiction articles published!
