Play along! List 5 random things....

Recommended Posts

That you can see right now, from where you are sitting.


Here are mine:


1. A small "Smurf" figurine collection. I had a BIG Smurf collection when I was a kid until my brothers decided to sell them at my mother's yard sale when I wasn't home one day. I was heartbroken. After hearing this story, my husband decided to buy me some Smurfs online. :D


2. A "covered wagon" that my husband and my daughter made last year out of a shoebox, strips of cardboard, and an old teeshirt for a social studies project. It lives on top of one of my bookcases.


3. An empty cereal bowl with a spoon in it sitting on my computer desk. 'Cause I just ate a bowl of Apple Jacks for dessert. :D


4. A blue "sticky lizard" toy. That's on my desk. For some reason. Why do people think they should just put random things down on my desk, anyway?!


5. A large, saltwater fish and coral reef aquarium tank that is my husband's pride and joy. He really needs to clean the algae off the glass, by the way. It's looking kinda icky right now.

Just 5? Not 50 million?!


Ok -

1) a sheet of brown wrapping paper that DD11 painted with footprints - only she used the "heel" of her hand and then printed the toes with her fingertips

2) the piano with our Praise the Lord songbook on it

3) a row of books that I've got listed on Amazon to sell

4) a pack of bun-nets for DD11 and DD9's hair when they do ballet

5) my dog :001_smile:

Ok, I'm in bed sick, so here are the random things decorating the bedroom:


1. My poodle; he doesn't leave my side no matter where I am :)


2. A weighted baseball for strength training


3. Four yellow, hexagon pattern blocks


4. Dh's knee brace, which he wore at least 3 weeks ago, but never put back in the closet


5. A leg lamp/wooden crate Christmas ornament from A Christmas Story that my mom bought me in Cleveland

Ok, just five?


1) My toothbrush (I often brush my teeth while sitting at my computer. I am compulsive about oral hygeine, I know.).


2) A tangle toy. Something to keep my hands busy when I am thinking.


3) My foot cream. (Which I used after bathing earlier).


4) My dogs. (Which seem to need to be in my presense at all times.)


5) A Rapid Response System ID that my child brought home from school. In the bottom is a small qualifier that says the child's picture could not be used unless permission is granted by the parent. It wasn't. :glare:
