Meme-ing away

10 on Tuesday

10 Things You'd Take With You on a Desert Island...

1. as many photos and scrapbook supplies as allowed
2. The Stand by Stephen King
3. the boxed set of Harry Potter books
4. a really thick notebook and pen
5. toothbrush/toothpaste
6. a big word puzzles book
7. my pillow
8. a big bag of peanut M&Ms
9. a big, thick book about world history (written at a non-historian's level)
10. Hershey (my stuffed bear)

If I gave this more thought, the list might be different. But this is what I came up with off the top of my head.

And appropriated from Marianne's, this week's Manic Monday:

This week's theme is 5 THINGS...

Name 5 Things that:

1. Make you smile:
a. my kids (when they're not making me cry)
b. Rich
c. free time to scrapbook
d. our mice
e. good mail

2. You can see on your desk right now:
(this is pathetically boring, as our "computer desk" is really just a sofa table so there is no room for anything but the computer equipment on it)
a. computer monitor
b. keyboard
c. printer
d. modem
e. scanner

3. Kept you busy this weekend:
a. scrapbooking (for the first time in what seems like forever)
b. working in the basement
c. getting everyone ready to head back to school after a week off
d. laundry (always laundry)
e. e-mailing and blogging

4. You'll be doing this coming week:
a. laundry (of course)
b. starting work on an album of heritage photos from my father-in-law's family (so honored that he asked me to scrap these...and really nervous because I want to do them justice...many of the photos date from the early 1900s...and yes, I'm making copies to actually scrap with)
c. hopefully, making some progress in the basement
d. worrying about Gray's dentist appointment next week
e. hopefully, walking at least 28 miles

5. You've said to make someone else smile:
a. telling Annie she could invite her friend over for supper and play last night...without her even asking first
b. telling Max he could have a snack (a sure-fire way to get him to smile!)
c. telling Annie she did a wonderful job making her bed this morning
d. telling Rich I was making him spaghetti for supper
e. telling Taco he was a shit, but I loved him anyway (trust me, he smiled inside...he loves knowing he's trouble!)

Quote of the day:
"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." --Marcel Proust

That was fun to read. I love Stephen King books. The Stand was a great one!!! I think I'd bring my pillow too! I can't sleep without it :)

take care,
