E is for Emergency Kit ~ Charene's Way

E is for Emergency Kit...Charlene's style, that is. We've all heard of an emergency kit, especially with so much going on in the world today. We need to be prepared. But what about those times when it's not due to an earthquake or food/water shortage but for when we face a heartache or stressful day? (Or two or three...) 

I'm gonna share what's in mine today because, well, sometimes I need them and sometimes you might too. *wink*

Grab your Emergency Survival Kit and plop down in the middle of your room.

The #1 absolute must in your kit is Chocolate!!
KISSES?  Well, of course, KISSES! 
A cuddly Teddy Bear is a must. Ya need to cuddle. Bury your face in him. He won't mind. *smile*
We all need something sweet, and Juicy Fruit doesn't mind the heartless chomping.

And speaking of chomping, if you really need dramatic sound to go along with it, Chester 's got it!
Once you've got the chomp out of your system, grab the cell phone. Call a BFF. They'll let you cry or scream or insist on coming over too share in the following steps.
It's gotta be the Double Stuff. Just gotta.
And who can do without the Reese's PB cups?  I like the bite sized, but if you can fit a whole big one in your mouth, all the better!
But at then end of it all, take a deep breath and reach for your favorite book. It doesn't matter how many times you've read it. Get it, flop down on your bed or snuggle with Mr. Teddy by the fire and escape into another world through your book. Reach for another Oreo, or KISS, or Reese's, or gum. (The Cheetos tend to get cheese on the pages and the chocolate bar will be long gone by now.)

And there you have it. Prepare. Enjoy. And may Charlene's Emergency Kit rescue you from a devastating disaster.

Anything you'd add to yours to make it even better? Do share!!

An e-copy of One for Kami

Can love be true if shared with more than one?  Kami doesn’t think so when she finds Ian is an elite and required to take three wives to eliminate the poverty-stricken population.  Why can’t he be poor the way she thought he was when she fell in love with him?
Determined to find a realm that doesn’t have such dictates, she travels to dimension Three-Two-Three to begin her search.  But is love truer in a place that only allows one spouse than it is in Ian’s heart?

What they’re saying
“Sweet, romantic, and heartfelt.  A great introduction to the author’s world.”—J.D. Brown Book Club
“One for Kami is a story that will have you willing to give up everything for your one true love.”—Annette, Gothic Mom’s Book Reviews
“[Wilson] spins a tale of true love spanning time and dimensions that will inspire the reader to sacrifice everything to find their soul mate.”—Debbie, Read2Review

I think I'd have to replace the Juicy Fruit with Gummy Bears. :-)

Otherwise, this is a great Emergency Kit.

This is way better than the Hurricane Kit we have stashed in the garage. :)

Happy A-Z!

I'd add twiglets and midget gems...they are a UK thing I don't seem to be able to get them here in the states yet? Google twiglets...they are yummy x

Ahaha! I love this idea! I would add Ramen noodles to the mix. I have a weakness for them more then the candy. Also a good sappy romance movie!

That's a great list. I'd substitute pringles and peanuts for some of your junk food... and as nifty as my cell phone, I might want my laptop or a PDA as well. :)
