Back At It Again

Saturday, April 21, 2012

A cold front went through yesterday and it rained. The temps dropped and it was cold.

I didn't feel much like doing anything. I was just MRSA-ing along. LOL.

I had to go look for a new purse. I swear they don't make a purse that suits my needs. It has to be the size of a garbage can with a sturdy strap, capable of holding 200 pounds, with lots of compartments but not like a granny purse, attractive without being too "hookerish" to suit my 28 years old son's demand that I not be decked out like a street walker, with a zipper and not snaps, doesn't smell like a wet dog, and is in a color that doesn't remind me of vomit, bile, or worse. I always fail on some level.

Today my son was off work so the 3 of us could sleep in. We got up and made breakfast and lunch while hubby fed the chinchillas and spot cleaned the cages. My son took off to his friend's house and hubby and I went to my MIL's house. He mowed and we went through the other closet and threw clothes away and started to separate them into one pile for consignment and another for the rummage sale.

We left and went to the grand opening of a Steven's Floral and bought my MIL and FIL some flowers for their graves for Memorial Day.

    I recently bought a bling-y Florida purse that's so loaded down with studs and fake jewels that it clanks when I set it down and Bill fears that I'm going to use it as a mace. It should come in handy should we be attacked by young toughs. The thing is so godawful gaudy that I'm amazed when women come up to me and compliment me on it. I set it aside when I have to go somewhere for work.

    I have the worst time trying to buy a new purse. I do a ton of looking before I find something that I like.
    I only have 1 purse I have at a time. I don't have several like some people. I just don't find the ones I like very often.

    I do hope you find a purse. I haven't carried one in years, I just put my wallet in my back pocket and go.

    Glad to know someone else is picky about purses.

    You are having our weather, exactly, again.

    So sorry for your MRSA coming back. It's a sign to give yourself TLC. When you were so tired before it hit, that was it, getting ready to come back.

    So did you find a purse ? I am picky so when I have a purse I like I usually use it till it is worn out and I just have to get a new one.

    Really related to your purse story! I've come to the conclusion that there is no perfect purse. No matter the size, pockets inside, compartments, etc. I can still never find what I am looking for. The bigger the purse the more junk I find to carry (haha). Glad you seem to be feeling a bit better. Carol

    No matter how big my purse is, it is never big enough. In addition to my purse, I carry a bag along or a tote to have my meds, glucose meter and blood pressure meter in case I need them as well as two or three bottles of water. I keep them in the car and never take them out of the trunk when shopping. lol
    Sure hope you find a purse that works for you. Please update us.

    Got a kick out of your purse ordeal. I myself have gone back to the over the shoulder smaller bag which holds the credit card, license, money and such. My daughter complained continually how it took me forever to get things straightened out and put away in my big purse. Now I don't have to fumble anymore - everything has it place. I am so happy with this 'going back in time' event!!! Great blog page...

    (laughing) My husband calls my purse the mobile office. I finally found a good sized backpack type purse, with comfy adjustable straps and outside pockets for things like keys, coupons, and cell phone (for pocketless days). It even has a strap for my water bottle. A plain old Wally World day pack probably would have done the job, too, but my black leather keeps my sons and husband from laughing at me.

    Good luck on the hunt! -- Claudia

    I keep going to jean purses.... and I wear them out... I have a ton of small and dress ones for special occasions - but they are so rare now- I took a lot to the senior center for give aways and they were gone in no time...

    I can also relate to the purse shopping.. I can never find one that is attractive yet hold all of my junk..Then often if I do, it rips or the zipper does not work.

    Hope you found one!

    Boy can I relate to purse shopping.....they just don't make them like they used to and it's not easy finding THE one to meet our needs. Glad to hear your day went pretty well and here's hoping that this week brings us all joy and happiness along with healthy choices. emoticon

    Good luck finding the purse of your dreams. I have given up on purses as they were always pulling me to one side. Now I use a very small fanny pack so I can't carry too much - but now the car's a mess!!! LOL

    I am so glad I only have to worry about wallets generally (just don't get me started on the TRI FOLD my daughter bought me - I HATE HATE HATE it but I have to wait until it DIES before I can get rid of it I already had the plastic thingie inside self destruct which sucked as I now have to find more places for some of my cards.).

    Oh my and I have the exact same purse requirements....and I am at a loss to find that perfect fit for me :) Glad I'm not the only one!

    Lol!! I used to carry half the house with me when I went out too, and need a "roomy" purse, but through the years it's shrunk to just a wallet with a strap.

    Glad you're feeling well enough to be upright and mobile. Be gentle on yourself.
