Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Joyful Days said...

Am I also to assume not my hubs or boys??? Since you said "objects."

1)my Bible
2)a survival manual
3)a charged satellite phone
4)a change of clothes
5)a good anthology

Good questions Amy.

debi said...

Fun question, Amy!

1. My pillow.
2. A tote full of photos and scrapbook supplies (can that count as one item?)
3. Toothbrush/paste.
4. A nice big world history book, written for the layperson.
5. A boxed collection of the Harry Potter books.

If I gave it a little more thought, my answers might be a little different, but that's what I get off the top of my head.

Karen said...

I am also assuming not hubby or boys, so:

1. Bible
2. unlimited supply of waterproof matches
3. unlimited supply of water filtration pills
4. Roofed hut complete with a hammock that has pillow and blanket attached (complete with a/c and heating of course)lol
5. unlimited supply of bug sprays (both the kind that kill bugs and the kind that protect your skin with suncreen).

Ok, so maybe thats too much, but it would be a semi-luxury island, right?;P

I am thankful for my house right now. Thinking of answers to these questions made me appreciate how thankful I am for a home to keep me safe, dry, cool/warm, and protected from bugs:)

amy said...

Way to go people..and karen thanks for including what you are thankful for. I think you are determined to win the rock

Tanya Nichols said...

Amy thanks for the comment on my WW. I appreciate it!!

Sparky Duck said...

Sparky Duck said...

jdoriot said...

hmmm...great question!

1. my Bible
2. photos of my loved ones
3. a big, floppy straw hat
4. my camera
5. instructions for making a boat...because I'm sure I would need to get off the island after awhile. This would be a boat used to get around the edge of the island...if I were to get sucked out into the BIG OCEAN I would die! Really, I would pass out from fright and then probably fall off the boat and drown!!

Which leads me to what I'm thankful for....I'm thankful that I have never been on a small boat on the high seas...I'm thankful that I have not had to experience a tsunami. I can't imagine what people feel when they see all that water coming in...ack!

annie said...

Great question!

1. A boat with a motor.
2. Gas for the boat.
3. A GPS
4. Batteries for the GPS
5. Sunscreen.

annie said...

And I forgot to say what I am thankful for today... I am thankful that my Chick-fil-A is done being renovated. They have a double drive-through now! Whoo-hoo!

Oops. Forgot today's thankful...

Gotta say the kids today (it is Absolutely Incredible Kids Day, after all).

1) my iPod
2) some of my favorite books
3) soap!
4) clean underwear

Of course, I'd really *need* my hubby and dog. Can't go to any deserted island without them. I'm thankful for them, and for electricity, now that you've posed this question!

Nancy the Romancechick said...

Five objects:

1. My cross stitching tote (since all my supplies are already in there! (I'd shove a few unfinished projects in there, too!)
2. My Bible
3. My rosary
4. My alpha smart so I could write (and a USB cable)
5. My husband's laptop so I could upload all the stuff I've written to the computer to empty the AlphaSmart for more stuff!

And today I'm thankful for my husband who guaranteed my love for him when he said in response to my announcement that I wanted to write romance novels, "Good for you."

Indiana Amy said...

1. My bed
2. My toothbrush...I hate that tarter feeling
3. My laptop (hey this is not a real game, we can play with not real ever lasting technology!)
4. My underwear drawer
5. Conditioner...hey, no one likes knotty hair!

Indiana Amy said...

Oh, and I am thankful that my little girl made it through her surgery very well and barely cried.

annb said...

If I were stranded on a desert island or anywhere else for that matter the first thing I would definitely want is my Bible - and of course, it goes without saying - I take God with me wherever I go! The second thing I would want to have with me is a tent! I don't think I would be very good at constructing a shelter by myself. The third thing I would want with me is a fishing pole! I love fish and I'm sure I could catch something to eat. The fourth thing I would want is a BIG Box of matches. I can stack wood, but not sure I could start a fire by rubbing two sticks together. A box of matches would insure that I don't have to eat raw fish, grubs, small animals or anything else - yuck! The last thing I would want is a 2-way radio. I would have something to listen to and hopefully be able to locate someone who can help me off the island!
I'm very thankful that I have a home to live in. I may not have the biggest, most beautiful home on the block, but I have a home(and it's paid for)! It's my safe place to lay my head at night and feel safe!

Shelly Kneupper Tucker said...

Good question! Great way to generate traffic.
So, how long am I going to be stranded? I'd take a huge notebook, pen, blanket, sunscreen, and a giant encyclopedia.
I'm thankful that my husband doesn't fight me for the computer.

gail said...

Hard, I would want more than 5!

1. Bible/books
2. toothbrush
3. matches
4. pillow/air mattress
5. water

something I'm thankful for, my family
