Half my life, I thought a "pocket book" is what Americans call "paper back".
In the Philippines, we call this -
I don't usually carry bags - or purses or pocketbooks. I usually just put my 3x4 wallet in my pocket together with my cell phone, house keys and car keys.
Last Friday, I had to bring my 8yo for his follow-up check-up. I had a feeling we would be waiting awhile so I made sure I had everything I need.
Inside my pocket book were the following items:
- a small red bag that has my iPod and iTouch;
- a medium sized bag that has my allergy medicines;
- a leather-bound journal and black pen that I use to write some ramblings of the mind!;
- 2 chapsticks;
- a small package of tissue paper;
- 2 eye little bottles of eye drops;
- a prescription for lab work;
- my Kindle in its black case;
- digital camera in its black case;
- 3x4 wallet;
- beat-up env2 cellphone;
- a pack of gum;
- orange TicTac
- game boy
- reading glasses in a case with cloth and lens cleaner
- pink hat and mittens
So glad I had most of what's in my pocket book since my 8yo and I were waiting at the lobby for 45 minutes and then we waited inside the exam room for another 15 minutes!
But lo and behold, my shoulders were aching that night.
I guess our bags define our job description - "full time mom" (a mom's always a full-time mom anyway, right? no such thing as part time or per diem mom!)
Can you list the items in your pocket book?
Do make a list and check if you have something in your pocket book that you didn't know you have!
Happy Monday and keep smiling :)
BTW, almost all of the gadgets in my pocket book were given by Mom (my mom-in-law)

I just noticed, I also have my kids' puffer (for asthma), and a small first aid kit with band-aid and nesporin!
I always have antibacterial gel in mine as well as some junk of the kids.ReplyDelete
