So I started this blog as a journaling tool. Obviously I'm not going to use it to plumb the depths of my soul like I might if it were for my eyes only, but rather to record some of the things about daily life that I'm sure to forget if I don't write them down.
And yet daily life can be so.... daily. Boring, even. After all, there are only so many creative ways to write about washing dishes and laundry. I hesitate to chronicle some things because I don't want to embarrass my teenagers by throwing our conversations out in public, thus causing them to lose trust in me and never tell me anything ever again.
So... what to blog about today? In reading another blog, I ran across the silly idea of emptying out and listing everything that is in my purse. The idea struck me as funny. You may choose to list the contents of your own purse in the comments, or ask questions about the contents of mine, because heaven knows I am soooo interesting. So here goes:
1 Franklin Planner: my lifeblood and brain. I use this as my wallet/checkbook holder as well. It contains my driver's license, various bank account cards for the kids, 1 credit card, 1 debit card, Library card, Blockbuster Card, Hollywood Video Card, Domino's Fund Raiser card, a Land's End Gift Card, my Auto insurance information card, and orthodontist appointment reminder cards, as well as a bit of cash and latest receipts detailing the obscene amount of money I spent last week. Oh and also a pen and a mechanical pencil.
1 Macey's receipt
1 Ziploc sandwich bag, containing $1.90 cash.
1 Sunglass holder, with sunglasses and reading glasses in residence.
1 Pack of Wrigley's Doublemint Gum, with 11 sticks left.
1 Mini paperback Book of Mormon
1 Tampax Super-Plus Tampon, sans wrapper
1 Chapstick, regular flavor
1 Smith's Fresh Values Card
1 512 MB Flash Drive that I never ever use, but it's a cool thing to have!
1 mini LED flashlight with "Microwave Innovations" printed on the side (tom brought this home from one of his many trade show trips).
3 crumpled gum wrappers
1 folded orange 3x5 index card, blank
2 US Military Pins (US Navy and US Marine Corps) that I purchased as souvenirs when in Washington DC, with every intention of giving them to Nathan. Obviously, I never did.
Okay, I think I probably have the most boring purse on the planet. Your turn.
