Monday Madness on Monday ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!

This week's theme is 5 THINGS...
Name 5 Things that:

1. Make me smile-Bravo(my doggie,) grumpy people, angry people, happy people and my roomie.

2. I can see on the computer desk right now- my itineray, two pens, speakers, monitor and mouse.

3. Kept you busy this weekend- nothing really, but I had two massages and cleaned house.

4. You'll be doing this coming week- two massages (paying client and Mom), visiting mom, helping mom, and hopefully visiting some sisters too.

5. You've said to make someone else smile- "what?" , "I'm sorry", "Hi", Hi, I'm Janice, your massage therapist!

It's not even Monday yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! see you on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday Madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you like to shop? If yes, answer the following: 1)What is your favorite store? why? My favorite store is "The Container Store" because I love organizing projects!!!!!!!!!

2)Do you only shop when there is something you specifically need or want or do you sometimes go shopping just for "something to do?" Sometimes, when I'm all alone (sniff, sniff) I go shopping just for an excuse to get out of the house. Luckily this doesn't happen often.

3)Do you prefer shopping online or in stores? I love both! Some things are easier to find online and if I don't have to pay S& H, it is often a better deal!

4) Do you have a shopping buddy or are you perfectly content going alone? I have a shopping buddy when she is looking for something specific, but she is usually "ON A MISSION" That, for me isn't the most fun; I need to stare, pause, think , walk away, go back, think some more............ you get the idea?

That's it! Great questions Otto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday Madness on Saturday??????????????????

1. Do you use a bag/sachel/wallet? Actually, I think the first question should be.... what do you call the thing you carry? I only started carrying a "purse" 3 or 4 years ago. It was easy getting used to carrying something, but it was difficult calling it a purse, but I haven't thought of a better word. I guess bag works. I guess my answer is that I carry a bag. Most of my adult life, I only carried a wallet in my back pocket. Only after S and I got together did I realize it would be easier carrying something bigger. S always had something that I was supposed to carry.

2. Do you use the same bag/sachel/wallet everyday or change depending on your outfit? I definitely carry the same one; I tried switching once, it would be too high maintenance. By carrying the same bag every day, I generally don't forget things.

3. What do you carry in your bag/sachel/wallet? The everyday stuff includes; phone, pen, pencil, eraser, note pad, hand wipes, hand sanitizer, Tide -to - go pen, lotion, nail clippers, headache meds, sinus meds, calendar (very compact), wallet, business cards, and at least one glasses case. I also have room for two water bottles or a mug which I carry if I'm spending a day somewhere like the zoo. I'm sure there's more, but that's most of it.

4. Do you check and change the contents of your bag/sachel/wallet before you go anywhere specific or do you take everything everywhere? I do check to make sure I have at least the contents that I stated in #3, but I only change it if something was missing.

5. How often do you have a good clean out of your bag/sachel/wallet? I generally clean it out at the end of the day if I had been out shopping or playing. I do this because throughout the day, i just shove receipts in the main pocket and at the end of the day, I decide which to shred and which to keep if any.

My bag is an over the shoulder strap kind and I'm thinking about changing to one of those bags that is made to rest easily over the shoulder. i don't know exactly what they're called, but I'll probably have a new one soon.

Thanks Otto! Love you
