What can't you live without?....

  1. I'm a pretty low maintenance gal but there are just certain things that I HAVE to have or I'm not myself or a person others are willing to be around!:imbar

    I have to wash my hair in the morning (even in a sink if neccesary,lol)
    have on mascara or I feel naked (the rest can wait),
    have chapstick on or in hand continuously,
    have some caffeine in hand,
    have my toenails painted-I think my feet look too wierd plain so they NEVER are!
    have quiet time just to sit,
    have a hug at least once a day from anyone,
    have to watch the news mulitiple times a day (I don't know why I'm always drawn to it-it's usually depressing),

    and OF COURSE I have to spend time here or I feel lost....I think that's all the quirks I can think of

    What about you?

    Well, for starters.... my Matrix hair products, Pepsi, chocolate, spaghetti, and allnurses.

    We're talking material items and luxuries, right? Because of course my family and love and all that stuff would come first.

    i would go nuts without my car. i have to have my cigarette, chocolate, and a hug from my children. i love huggggggsssss! i know there are more, but these stood out for now.

    i feel "lost" if i do not go to church to be "fed" and to have the fellowship with others.

    As always Heather, I agree on this one. But the material items I have to have books to read, coffee, pepsi, and my Bath & Body Works lotions and gels

    water (I love to drink water)
    I have the toe nail thing going on too. I think women's feet without toenail polish look like little men feet.
