Working Mom Wednesday

I’m linking up with Working Mom Wednesday this week. This week there were two prompts:

1. You know you’re stressed when…
2. Things in my purse

I thought they were both great prompts and couldn’t choose one… so I choose both!

1. I have a few things happen when I am stressed out. First, my mind will not shut off. I go, go, go and feel like I cannot even take a second for myself. I’m usually rushing around doing errands, cleaning the house, or taking care of Hunter and look like a crazy woman while I am doing so. This also means that I forget to eat. I am notorious for getting to dinner time during a busy weekend and realizing that I haven’t taken the time to take care of myself.

2. What is in my purse… I don’t know if you even want to know all the stuff I haul around in my huge purse!
• Wallet
• Makeup bag
• Coupons (currently Gymboree, Jamba Juice, Costco booklet, Macy’s)
• Mail (Engagement party invite, business renewal letter)
• Checkbook (both personal and business)
• Recipes (Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and S ‘more cookies)
• White onesie
• Toy Keys
• Keys (Personal keys, work keys)
• 3 Lip glosses
• Tums
• Headphones
• Cell phone
• Gum
• Digital Camera
• Crab Catch Record Card
• 2 pens and 1 pencil

How ridiculous am I? Do I really need to carry around so much stuff? Hmmm, I guess I could get rid of the mail, recipes, and crab catch record card. But that’s about all I’m willing to part with!

How do you know when you are stressed out? What do you keep in your purse?


  1. time for a clean out!!! and make sure to grab some snacks and shove 'em in your already full purse. that way you have something to munch on when you don't have time to eat! ;)

  2. I am so glad there is someone else carrying around a camera in her purse! BTW, you must have a huge purse. Enjoying your blog - from WMW and a new follower.

  3. in my purse, I get receipt build up, and when I take a moment to look back at my spending, I wonder if it was all worth it!
    I also have a few loose sweet tarts , probably from a bag of movie candy or something. I got desperate one day to freshen my breath and ate one, after I brushed the purse lint off of it.

    And I love the white onesie in your purse. It's a versatile shirt when you need a new one for Hunter.

    I know when I'm stressed when I get angry at the house being a mess and I just can't accept it, and I start to nit pick poor Geoff on if he ever checks out how dirty the toilet bowl is?? Because I'm pretty sure that toilet brush has only been used by me!
