Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

Writer's Workshop Thursday: It's In There!

For Writer's Workshop Thursday, we're given a list of prompts and are to choose at least one to write about on our blogs. Today, I chose this one:

"What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?"

Please play along at Mama's Losin' It.

The contents of my itty-bitty, Eeyore-embellished purse are as follows:

Two dimes, a penny, and a bicentennial quarter; Avon biz cards and holder;
Epi pen; napkins, salt, pepper, crumbs; Wallet; 2 ink pens;
Two pages from Avon brochure with customer wishes circled; Receipt;
Emery board; Lottery scratcher token; Pink polka dotted compact mirror

What these contents say about me:

...That I have no money to speak of, but am hoping to change that. I play scratch-off tickets sometimes because I like Bingo and Crossword, but not depending on it to make a fortune.

...That we eat on the road. We do a contract job on a regular basis to earn money as well as to spend time together.

...That I have allergies severe enough that I have to have treatment immediately available. The allergy list is long and distinguished.

...That my nails are prone to breaking at the most inopportune time (when is it "opportune"?).

...That I sell Avon and some of my customers use the brochure as their order slip, marking what they want straight on the brochure pages. And, I love to write and want to make sure that I am able to no matter where I am at.

...That sometimes I need to look at myself, but I don't want to see too much of *me* at a time!

My purse would be saying a lot more if I hadn't recently cleaned it out. I also have a Mary Poppins-sized bag. :)

  1. I can't believe all of that fit into Eeyore's bag. You certainly are well prepared for many things. Love the salt-n-pepper:) Cute compact mirror too. My daughter wants one of those. You just gave me an idea for an Easter basket goodie:) Thanks!
    P.S. I'm too afraid to even look into my purse. It would be scary!

  2. Too funny! This one has been pretty scary at times. haha

    I'm glad that I helped by giving you an Easter goodie idea. Have fun. :)
