Another insight into who I am...


Here I am at my desk... again.

I got so many positive responses from this blog, that I decided to do another one.

The notepad:
*It contains my list of 30 Things To Do Before I'm 30...
I'm still working on it.
In fact, while I was at my first book club meeting tonight I remembered something I wanted to add to my list... just so happens that my friend, Jaime (the book club organizer) can help me check this item off. :) **More on that later**

My hand:
*The pen I'm holding is BRAND NEW... as in just recently in stores...
It's a Sharpie Pen.
Not to be confused with the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Permanent Marker.

I LOVE Sharpies. I love them. I love that when I write with them it is PERMANENT. :)

I use the Ultra Fine Point Permanent Marker ALL THE TIME, but it bleeds when I write on paper... The answer to my problem: The Sharpie Pen.
Thank you Sharpie People. You make me happy. :)

I must get these in all available colors!!

The mug:
*Recognize this mug? Maybe from Monica's kitchen shelf over her sink in Friends?

Well, my parents had these mugs WAY before Friends ever aired... In fact, they had them before I was even born.

One time the shelf with all the mugs hanging on it fell off the wall... ALL of the mugs broke EXCEPT for this one and it's twin mug.
I think my mom's response was something like, "You've got to be kidding me!! These 2 ugly mugs survived, when all the others shattered!!!"

Well, mom. I love this mug. Always have. That's why it holds pens and other various things in a spot where I can look at it everyday. :)

I have no idea who has the other one... my sister maybe? I'd love to have both of them (hint, hint Erin).

The basket:
*It holds bills, calculators, and other random papers.
I really need a better system... I'm trying to come up with something that will work for us.

The plastic bin:
*It holds 12x12 scrapbook paper. It's 3 drawers and it's CRAMMED FULL of paper, pictures and scrapbook accessories that won't fit in the smaller plastic organizer on the other side of my computer.

The bottle of superglue:
*Used to repair all of the Christmas ornaments that my kids broke this year!

So there you have it!
I'm hoping my list will be done soon... I'll share it with you as soon as possible! :)

So the sharpie pen doesn't bleed through? Wow. I am always looking for pens because I think having a good pen makes writing so much more enjoyable no matter what you're writing!

BTW I loved that shirt you were wearing too. I wish ON still had some cause I would copy you.
