What’s in that Purse?!

Isn’t “purse” a funny word?  AG & I have been laughing about it for too many years to count!

It’s been so long since my last post I almost forgot how to add pictures. But here is a picture of my purse. Ok, it’s not really my purse, but it’s something like my purse. This one is way less battered.

PurseThe reason you are not getting a picture of my actual purse is because I put my camera download cord in my purse (I think) and it hasn’t surfaced in a few weeks. I have been looking for it. That’s why I have been so quiet. Oh, and I’ve been moving. And wedding planning, finally.

So, this is a fabulous purse. If I were to write a wedding guide, I would simply tell the bride to get herself a REALLY big black purse. J&S gave me this purse for Christmas, and I haven’t put it down since.

So, here is what is in my purse today:


It’s all about being on the move, nimble. Ready for anything. Except my ipod cord is dangerously close to the tape cutter, my shoes stink, I’m taking advil every 2 hours (can’t move my neck from too many bad golf swings), and who knows what that silver candy dish is still doing there. Right, nimble.

Last night, M&E suggested that perhaps my neck problems are CAUSED by my purse. No way.

And all I can really think about is that in less than a week, everyone I love will be here. And that’s all that matters.

So, what’s in your purse?

    OK, so before my sholder starts hurting, I’m going to clean out my purse. My purse is a 2 year old Vera Bradley knockoff. I’m very particular about my purse, how it opens, size and pockets. It’s not an easy task to replace a purse, ergo, the 2 year old bag.

    Anyway, here are some of my contents…(no pictures, sorry).

    Phone, gum, rarely used Weigh Watchers Points calculator, wrist bands to prevent car sickness while reading (as a passenger) on road trips, 2 IDENTICAL Dot to Dot Puzzle books given to me by the same person at the same time…thanks AFW. Application for a Macy’s credit card so I could get 20% off the dress I bought for the wedding, the email listing participants for the pre-wedding golf tournament, several BHHCC score cards, a small address/phone book. Now, why do I have that? All the phone numbers I care about are in my phone, I don’t write letters anymore, and I know were everyone lives, so I don’t really need their addresses, hmmmmmm.

    I’m a little concerned though, because I seem to be missing my VISA card. I’m sure it’s stuck between some of the many pieces of paper stashed in my purse, so I guess it’s time to quit writing and start cleaning.

    See you all soon. Maybe I’ll find a dainty little something to carry to the wedding. I promise I won’t bring the WW Points calculator to the reception!

    I suppose that means it’s my turn.

    okay…my wallet of course (I suppose I should return my husband’s VISA card…naahhh) Yes, for whatever reason I have my little black book too “Party”. Two calendars (last year’s and this year’s – in case I forgot to transfer any b-days); receipts gallore (pretty much Target and Weggies); a silver keychain with an apple and “make a difference” (our staff gift for teacher appreciation day – settled to the far depths of my bag); enough barretts and hair ties to start a new store (thanks to my darling daughter’s forever-growing hair); can’t forget my wegmans coffee punch card and without writing a veritable book we’ll end with my small collection of writing implements (6 to be exact! I can’t help it I have a thing for pens 🙂 In my purse there is a green one, two red ones, a black one and two pencils.

    I guess it’s time to clean out!

    PS – I have to agree with Jess, the word “purse” is something I have a very difficult time with – particularly in reference to myself: I still don’t say I have a “purse” it sounds too old/grown up; I have “my bag”!

    The best purse I’ve ever had and can not live without is always the next one I buy! So many bags, so little time! I

    Yes! I’m a bag hound, too–it’s always the next best one. And I have a hard time with purse, too–maybe because it is a verb as well.

    But I’ve got a pair of 2T shorts and CARS underpants in mine, in addition to elevnty-hundred pens, too. I’ve got a pen thing, too.

    Now what dainty little number can I bring this weekend to still fit the CARS underpants?

    Wait until you have a kid…. then you will have lovely items like “resturant toys” fish crackers (and crumbs)….

    As for “purse” some people think a purse is the small bag for your change, a “pocketbook” is what your “purse” goes in. I am not fond of the word pocketbook… that is definately what my grandma had….
