    Most definitely my phone, the internet, and my kiddos.

    Figuring family and insulin are givens......

    I'd say my cellphone - or else I'd have no contact with older DS ;) - and my car. I hate to be without wheels!

    Besides kids and grandkids, I'd have to say my friends, both IRL and here at CWD and I couldn't have you without the internet.--Diet coke and chocolate are both high on the list too.

    Diet Coke and some form of exercise that makes you sweat.

    Books!!!! Always have to have something to read. I carry a small paper back in my bag, in case I ever have to wait somewhere.
    And music, I nearly always have the radio or a cd on.

    I should also add my glasses. I am completely blind without them, and have knocked myself out before trying to walk around without them on.

    Well other then the given of family, supplies ect..

    Music, and friends.

    I've been where I'm at for almost a year, no cell so I know I don't need it, I do have internet but it goes down freqently so I really don't need that, haven't driven my car in almost a year. But without music and my friends this year would be horrible!! (going home very soon!!!)

    -Insulin :D
    -cookie-dough flavored Balance bars.
    -knitting needles (or crochet hook!) and enough yarn to make something
    OR a pencil and some paper.

    Throw some syringes in there and I'd be all set to live on a deserted island...

    I am know for always having Burt's Bees Lip Balm on me. DH has gone so far to suggest I am addicted. :p (pause while I reapply) I would say my cell phone, since it gives me the peace of mind to leave my house and not miss calls about Jake.

    But take all that away and I would struggle without the friends and family that surround us, support us and love us.

    I've been thinking about this. A car is a necessity isn't it? I'll say a car if I have to but that sort of goes without saying like family and insulin in my book. :) So I'm going to say, Topamax my migraine medicine and Excedrin. :D I'm a druggy.

    I have a black Sharpie in my pocket all the time at work at it would be on my list too. I have to have my tools to do my job and my favorite is probably my Noga indicator holder with the on/off magnetic base.

    Away from work? A good quality mattress. I'm surprised no one else has said that yet. Most of us are sleep deprived, therefore having a comfortable mattress is super important.

    I've had rx sunglassses since I was about 20 and will never go back. Every two years I get a new pair since they are abused so much.

    Mine are so dark they don't even show up as a color choice in the eyeglass shop! I made a special request about 10 years ago to make a color that was about 3 shades darker than the darkest they had. So what I do now is hand them my old glasses and say "make them exactly this dark".

    For the sharpies people...what do you use them for?:eek: I'm curious.
    Ummm, maybe I don't know what a sharpie is...is it a black felt-tip marker?
