Back with 14 Things Friday – I didn’t intend to take the last couple of Fridays off but we had been preparing to go camping and then I was battling another summer cold, so here we are. 🙂 Today’s prompt is one that makes me laugh – I love the expression “if I had a nickel every time ______, I’d be rich”, so I thought I would share a few things that have the potential to make me rich. 🙂
If I had a nickel every time my husband pushed snooze, I’d definitely be rich. He is the king of the morning snooze button.
If I had a nickel for every time a child asked me for a drink of water, I’d be SOO rich. I am working on getting them to get their own water.
If I had a nickel for every library book I’ve checked out in my lifetime, I’d be a millionaire. It’s my personal mission to ensure that my library is always busy managing my loans. Haha 🙂
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve misplaced my cell phone in my house, I’d be rich. This drives my husband *crazy* because it’s usually on silent mode or vibrate so we can’t even find it when we call it from his phone. Ooops.
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve sung Wheels on the Bus or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, I could retire tomorrow. These are 2/4 of Lucy’s bedtime songs but we also sang them thousands of times with Molly before Lucy even came along.
If I had a nickel for every flip turn I’ve done in a swimming pool, I would have been a rich teenager. I was a competitive swimmer for 6 years and that was a LOT of laps in the pool.
If I had a nickel for every minute I’ve browsed Netflix to find a good movie to watch, I could pay for my subscription and more. I’ve pretty much given up unless I hear or something good coming (Like Guernsey NEXT WEEK and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before THE WEEK AFTER!!!)
If I had a nickel for every blog post I’ve ever read, I could live off the income. I was reading blogs before they were even popular, back in the days of Google Reader! #rip
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve thought about the impact that Harry Potter has had on my life (again with my desire to apparate everywhere), I would be richer than J.K. Rowling. JK. 😉
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve used my slow cooker, I could buy 100 more of them. Serious working-mom-lifeline right there.
If I had a nickel for every cough drop I’ve consumed in the past two weeks, that would be great. #sickofcoughing
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been soooo proud to be a Canadian citizen, I could travel the world.
If I had a nickel for every French braid I’ve done in my life, I could pay a hairdresser a lot of money. I used to practice constantly on my sister, my rag doll, and now I will happily do my children’s any time they let me 🙂
If I had a nickel for every time I count my greatest blessings in life, I would be as rich as I feel inside. Because let’s be honest – nickels can’t buy happiness, but gratitude leads to happiness.
Hope you all have a great weekend! We have a long weekend in Canada – can’t WAIT!! 🙂
