Time Machine and Phone Apps

Finish the Sentence Friday

And now for this week’s sentence to finish:  “If I were stuck on an island, I would like to have…”
And next week’s sentence to finish:  ”This summer I plan to……”

”If I were stuck on an island, I would like to have…”
a time machine. I am serious people. A time machine to get back to my life. I am telling you right now, I would not and could not handle it. I would go mad with worry and make myself sick. All I could think about is my son and never seeing him again…and I would NOT want him on the island. NO WAY…not even thinking about him on that island alone if something were to happen to me.
So I would hop into my time machine, go back to my life as if I was never on that island in the first place. Yup, that’s my answer. I don’t care how foolish it sounds.

1. What is your next home improvement goal? Since we rent, we don’t have a home improvement goal. Though I want to buy two hanging tiered metal baskets to use in the kitchen. I can use them to hold fruit on one side and my dishtowels and rags on the other. It will save counter and cabinet space in our tiny kitchen. I can’t take credit for this, it was my mother’s idea.

2. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? No religious texts (ie Bible, Quran, Torah, etc, etc).. Wow tough question, only one book. It would have to be Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise. It was a difficult decision, but this book as a strong female character, positive body image, romance, great story line, and lemony goodness…what’s not to love? I was thinking out renting the audiobook again from the library, one of my favorites.

3. What is on top of your refrigerator? Since we have a tiny kitchen, I kind of relented and let my husband organize this space. It was a battle not worth fighting over AND the top of the old fridge gets so hot that nothing can really be stored on it anyway.

So we have

  • coffee
  • basket with hubby’s favorite food containers that Dinosaur can’t reach (hubby can be a little anal over certain things)
  • hubby’s little grills which make a big mess
  • my collection of cookie cutters which I hardly use
  • hubby’s water jug for only him I would NEVER use it…bleh
  • and in the cabinet is too many coffee travel mugs…which next time FlyLady says we are in the kitchen zone, I am attacking that cabinet.


4. What are your favorite or most used phone apps? Having my favorite man and all the apps I use on a daily basis right at my fingertips. Of course I would have my cozi calendar…I LOVE that app. I have all our appointments, birthdays, zones from FlyLady, and added my own FlyLady list of detailed cleaning. It’s color codes, so as a visual learner, this is important. I also use the Weather Channel app, but only once a day…so it’s on the next page.


5. What’s the one thing you hate most about your spouses job? Oh boy, the snow removal is the thing I hate the most. Since he is a custodian, he has to go in when it’s horrific out and remove all the snow from the school. I hate it, I know it has to be done but I often worry about his safety driving in that snow before even the plow truck has cleaned our driveway. Thankfully he was a Jeep and it’s good in the snow, but I still worry. Then after removing snow he goes back to his regular scheduled hours, which is the second thing I hate.

  1. Doesn’t sound foolish at all and I pretty much said the same thing that I would want my family. Love the time machine addition though and thank you for linking up with us!! 🙂

  2. Brilliant answer for the desert island, Karen. And I’ll have to check out Bet Me. If you’d pick it over all other books it must be a good one!

    • I should have added that she uses “said” too much…but it was still an awesome read. I have not had a chance to look at all your books, I need to do that and start adding to my “want to read” list… my goal is 40 books and I want to beat that, LOL
