10 Things I'd Save in a Fire

I'm assuming ya'll know that the kids, the pets, & my purse are the absolute 1st things I'd save in a fire. So I'm just going to list my material possessions.


  1. our bibles

  2. my pictures

  3. my jewelry (just about every piece has sentimental value)

  4. computer hard drive (altho, it'd probably be easier to just yank the tower)

  5. my travel spoons

  6. 2 big cross stitch pieces that I made for each child

  7. our cameras

  8. kids' baby books/school stuff (such as awards)

  9. some figurines that have special meanings

  10. my travel & life souveniers


  11. Little tidbit about myself: When our parents divorced, we lived in a house in an older neighborhood. It had iron bars on the windows and you had to walk through Coastie Brother's bedroom to get to mine. We didn't live in it for very long but, while we did, I had my 'in case of fire' box filled with everything I wanted to save. I was young so I'm sure it was filled with toys. When we moved into our new house, I stopped. No rhyme or reason to my mind.

      Our lists - ergo, our values - are very similar!

      Happy Tuesday, sweetiepiehoneyfriend.

      What is WRONG with you and B/S? Neither of you put the JameeForever CD on your top 10. I'm certain it was an honest oversight---right?? (hehe) xoxo

      Make a wish! We were posting to each other at the same time--there has to be a wish or something granted for that! xoxo

      See, in my mind, I always think of fires happening at night. Since Big D works nights, he obviously won't be here to save. And you KNOW that I want him to make it out of a fire alive.

      Big D can get out on his own - he wouldn't need saving! In fact, he better be grabbing some of the stuff on your list! :-)

      i hope you never have to put this to a test. your family will never make it out alive with all the stuff you will rescue.

      you need to practice your fire drills. do you have a plain for that. do you test it? maybe you should

      We do have a plan. Um, we have never practiced it. Trust me when I say, if the flames are visible, I'm only saving the people and the pets. I won't risk any lives for material possessions no matter how important they are. However, if it's still just smoke...
