30 Days of Bloggity Bloggness: Day 22

Day 22: What’s in your purse?

(Not long ago, I wrote this post for Hallee the Homemaker — I’ve just copied and pasted it.)

I’m a purse girl. If Gregg can’t find me in a store, he’ll go look in the purse section. I have purses in every possible style and color. I love wallets, checkbooks, little purse accessories. Until I dumped it this morning to take pictures, I had no idea how much junk I actually had.

Here’s the purse. You’ll be shocked at how much I shoved in it.

Here’s the inside. It looks harmless enough.

The pile. Unedited, unadulterated.

You have my wallet.

My Bible. This is my “purse Bible” – it’s slim and easy to carry around. My study Bible is much much larger.

My card wallet. Shopping with my dad one day, I pulled my card wallet out to dig through it and find whatever card to whatever specific store, and he said, “That’s a lot of cards.” To which I replied, “Every stinkin store requires their own card.” To which he replied, “My life isn’t that complicated.” Touche’, Daddy.

The cool thing about my card wallet is that it holds this. A Swiss army knife that’s the size of a credit card.

I have baby Tylenol, hand sanitizer, lipstick, a hairbrush/mirror combo thing that rocks the planet, and chapstick.

A sewing kit.

A safety pin, hair tie, and, strangely, a diaper pin. I don’t know why that’s in there. We haven’t used cloth diapers in some time.

My ipod and headphones.

Pens. And pens. Colored pens, black pens. Pens my husband mailed me. Can’t ever have too many pens.

Pictures from the boys playing at Chuck E Cheese.

Miscellaneous receipts that should be inside the wallet instead of loose in the purse.

Gum. Minty gum for me, fruity gum for the boys.

What’s in your purse?

Day 21: Something you could never get tired of doing

This is going to sound all mushy and such, but it’s the truth: Being in the same room as my husband.

We have spent most of our marriage apart — not just typical apart, but in different time zones apart.  To be together often required traveling long distances and enjoying snatches of time before they were taken away again.

He’s now been home 8 straight months.  That’s the longest stretch of time we’ve been in the same time zone, much less in the same city.  Every night we go to bed together, and every morning we wake up together.

I could never get tired of being in the same room with him.

Day 20: Nicknames you have

I think the most common one would be Hal.  My sister has always called me that.  (Which can be confusing at her house, because her son is named Hal, and she’s nicknamed him Hallee).

Gregg calls me all sorts of endearments…honey, sweetie, lover, darling.  There isn’t a specific “one” that he calls me more than another.

Recently, I did a video blog for my Hallee the Homemaker blog.  I filmed it a few times, then played it several times.  In the beginning, I say, “Hi!  I’m Hallee the Homemaker…”  All day, Scott and Johnathan reenacted that video blog.  That night at church, Scott couldn’t find me and he asked someone, “Have you seen my mom, Hallee the Homemaker?”

Day 19: Something you miss

I miss reading.

I really love to read and read for years and years.  I loved reading romances and mysteries and true crime novels.

When I started writing, I no longer had the time or the patience to read.  Now, the only time I get to read is when we’re traveling and we’re reading a book out loud to each other.

I have bookshelves FULL of books and no time to read them.

I realize, though, that this is just a season of my life.  When my children are older, I’ll have more time to read and still have the time to write.

I’d love to learn to speed read so that I could at least consume books.

Day 18: Favorite Place to Eat

The buffet at the Teatro Restaurant at the Hilton Resort in Kuwait City.

I have never in my life eaten such amazing food — breakfast and dinner.

Dinner in Abu Dhabi

For the week we were there, I had no desire to eat anywhere but in the hotel.  The meats were perfectly cooked, the fruits and vegetables fresh, the breads and desserts were amazing.

But, since I doubt I’ll be eating there any time in the near future, when I get to choose where to eat out, I will always pick Greek/Mediterranean.  I LOVE hummus, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, well cooked lamb, salad with olives and feta cheese.  That is by far my favorite cuisine.  I’m even happy eating a gyro sandwich in the mall if that’s all I can get.

30 Days of Bloggity Bloggness: Day 17

Day 17: Something you’re looking forward to

Kaylee and Scott get out of school early this year.  We have had only one snow day, so they’ll be done for the year on May 18th.

Kaylee’s dad lives in Florida, where I lived my entire adult life until moving to Kentucky.  The last day of school, we’re packing up the minivan and heading down to Florida, where we’ll spend an entire week.  We’re starting off in St. Augustine and spending the weekend with some very dear friends, then we’ll head west along the Panhandle where we’ll spend the week in Tallahassee.

We have so many good friends there.  Our calendar is filling with lunches and dinner plans.

The last time we were there, though, Jeb broke his arm.  I’m hoping for no ER visits this trip and no plastic bags over casts during pool time!

For the first time in the almost 5 years since we moved here, I REALLY MISS my friends in Florida.  I think because the boys are older, I’m less exhausted, and traveling is so much more fun.  I can’t wait — 6 more weeks!
