Fun Monday #39


hosted by Candid Karina

“I want to see your security blankets. No, not the kind Linus carries around with him in the Charlie Brown cartoons, although, if you have one of those, by all means share it. What I want to see are the items you just cannot leave home without. What is it that if you leave your house without, you feel naked, incomplete, not quite right? This can be one thing or many things. And since most of us don't live in a clothing optional society, lets just assume we all leave the house fully dressed...I want to hear about those other things...the extras. The things that make women's purses so heavy and men's pockets so messy (I'm going to get grief for this one, aren't I?) What can't you leave home without? Show us pictures, tell us stories...have fun!”


Well, of course I can’t leave the house without my purse, but you don't need to see a picture of that. Would feel naked without it, plus has all the essentials of life that keep you from getting arrested such as a driver’s license and insurance card.

What is in that purse that is essential to me and can’t leave home without?

Well now that I am over 40 and suffer from the eyes are going, hands are dried out and lips feel like a prune syndrome, must have the “cheaters”, Aveeno hand lotion and Vaseline (get your mind out of the gutter). The phone is for emergencies only, but feel naked without it. Money is always important to have and yes, I still carry cash. Of course, the keys – can’t go anywhere at all without them. The rest is unremarkable or non mentionable.

  1. Good job, Robin,
    My glasses are my number one security, necessity item. Hand lotion and vaseline, those good things to have in your purse. My purse is bottomless pit. I never can find anything in it.

  2. Thanks, Robin!

    So what is more unmentionable than Vaseline! --just kidding! Ok--I'm 32 and every year my hands get worse and worse--it's not even winter yet and I keep getting splits on my fingers/thumbs. I need to moisturize much more, I guess. Maybe the answer is nutritional, huh? Anyway, not fun.
    But your post is fun! Maybe I'll join the fun!

  3. Hmm, almost everyone takes chapstick and cell phone. I'm beginning to wonder would we need the chapstick if we didn't take the phone?

  5. Very concise! It is amazing how much of the stuff we carry around we don't really need. Great job.

  7. I have Bath and Body lotion in my purse too. Some kind of mango/tangerine. I always have cash too, usually some hidden spare cash (about 5 twenty's if possible).

  8. Ooh I miss Aveeno! Lovely stuff! Didn't even think of the vision aspect... I'd be going nowhere without my contacts! ;-)

  9. I carry lotion with me too.

    I also carry sunglasses everywhere I go, incase I meet someone in the grocery store I just don't wanna stop and chat with. LOL

    I don't go anywhere without my cellphone.

    Keys of course and business cards.

  10. As another over 40 I know exactly what you're talking about. There's not enough hand lotion in the world...

    Happy Fun Monday!

  11. I still love your Catholic quotes. And, I'm jealous. I'm forbidden to carry cash as hubby can't track it.

  15. money! I almost didn't recognize Jackson.

  16. "the cheaters"...I love that! hahaha...

    Oh, and about Daylight savings time not changing? All that's succeeded in doing is confusing the crap out of me because all the clocks at my work (computer and phone ones) changed over, and we can't change them back, so I have no idea what time it is at any given moment now! sigh...

  17. For someone who carries a purse, you don't have a lot in it. Most have a kitchen sink in thiers...or at least it looks like it should be there :-)

  18. I wish I could carry cash. I have an almost 14-year old, so if I had cash? It has been confiscated by said child.
