Spring Cleaning

…sort of.  I was just looking for something in my purse, and as usual, was unable to find it.  So I took everything out.  Here’s what I found:

Purse contents

  • 5 receipts from the Washington State Ferries
  • 2 highlighters
  • 11 pens
  • 3 sharpies
  • 2 pencils
  • 1 blackberry
  • 1 Ace bandage with 2 clips
  • 1 wallet
  • several empty gum wrappers
  • 3 partially empty packs of gum (Orbit raspberry mint, watermelon spring, and mint mojito)
  • 1 pair sunglasses
  • 1 handsfree set for above-mentioned blackberry
  • 1 bottle ibuprofen still in box
  • 1 package wrist splint accessories from dr.’s office
  • 1 bag zinc and echinacea drops
  • 1 $1 bill
  • $2.36 in change
  • 1 used Space Needle ticket
  • 1 blue carabiner
  • 2 moleskine notebooks (1 large, 1 small)
  • 2 USB memory sticks
  • 1 Dayquil
  • 3 kashi granola bars
  • 1 tube lip gloss
  • 1 travel-size lotion
  • 1 tin “irony” mints
  • 2 sets keys
  • 1 broken keychain
  • 6 coupons (Starbucks, diapers, PNW Ballet)
  • the paperwork from a recent car rental
  • printouts of 2 recent newspaper articles
  • 3 dr.’s office receipts

Perhaps I should downsize.

In other news, we’re going on vacation in two days!!!!  WOOHOO!  For us, this is good news for soooo many reasons.  For you, this is good news because cute pictures are sure to follow (including Miss C in her new swimsuit if it’s warm enough!)!

And I got the cast off my wrist today.  Still in a splint, but I can SHOWER now without wrapping my arm in grocery sacks.  Praise the Lord. :)


  1. your purse sounds like the contents of a drug store! always be prepared!

  2. Where are you going?!?!?!

  3. I long ago stopped carrying a purse. with 2 kids most things go in the diaper bag. I wonder what all is in there now. :)
