Here's my January Photo A Day Challenge for Day 13: In Your Bag (Friday the 13th!)
Stuff in my purse varies depending on what purse I have. This is my typical "take to work" purse - durable, not too exciting because it's locked in my desk all day. But it's big, so it holds a lot of stuff. I actually just cleaned it out so this isn't half of what was in there before Christmas! The contents? Wallet, Phone, Sunglasses, Driving Glasses, One Glove (I can't find the other), Ipod (crack in top from it being crushed under the seat of my car as I moved it forward), Blistex (more for Matt than me - he can't stand the dry lips), Gum, Keys (showing only work keys on lanyard, but usually car keys and house keys too), Pen (I'm a teacher, can't live without one everywhere), Mirror, Toothpaste (just in case?), and of course, Keg Mints. Not featured? My camera - it's always there! Sometimes I have an umbrella in there, a book, some marking to do, receipts, candy, pretty much anything - I'm like Mary Poppins - it's a bottomless pit.
My work bag on the other hand was a disaster that I cleaned out today before this post. If you had any doubt I was a science teacher, this should prove it. Contents? Marking (folder of marking, always - it never ends), Sudoku Book, Pencil case (with pens, random school supplies, and my beloved USB with all my course stuff on it), Stapler (it's a Swingline), 2 Calculators, 2 kinds of Tape (Scotch and Masking), 2 Sizes of Post-Its, Lots of Markers (dry erase, overhead, permanent, non-permanent), A CD called "Here Comes Science", Granola Bar (I usually have a box of them in my desk for if I don't have time to each lunch - happens at least twice a week), Spoon (eww - that has been there for a while I'm guessing), Kleenex, Hand Sanitizer, an Elmwood Spa Receipt (I really need to submit it to get massage money back from my birthday last year!), and Lists (pages and pages of to-do lists). Oh yeah, and the Sticky Tomato from Europe - it splats when you throw it on the ground and reforms - great science demo for physical and chemical changes!
