So my friends and I had a sort of "girls night out" last night and in between getting off work and meeting up with them, I stopped by Lowe's. I'm in desperate need of a new kitchen faucet as mine has a broken ring valve thing (whatever it was my uncle said) and leaks. I also want to switch out the chandelier in the dining room to a semi-flush mount because a) it's not centered over the table and b) I keep banging my head into it. I mean, I'd love to have a fancy chandelier but my house just isn't really designed for it. So anyway, I found the stuff I liked/needed and was about to load it up when I remembered that I'd gotten some coupons in the mail this week. I could have SWORN that I'd put the coupons in my purse but alas, a quick dig through it yielded nothing but the notion that I seriously needed to clean out my purse. It was so full of receipts and junk that I couldn't find anything!
So I didn't get the stuff--I'll go back later--but when I got home, I emptied out my purse. Coupons weren't anywhere to be found in there. But I did find a few interesting things. Like, two dollars I didn't know I had. Three packets of Sonic ketchup. Two butter knives I'd forgotten that I'd thrown in there. (don't ask) A cherry stem. Yes. The stem of a maraschino cherry from the last time my friends and I went to Sonic for milkshakes. A twist tie.
Also in there was a bag of Sonic peppermints, a box of breath mints, a hair clip, a car charger for my phone, two pens, a comb, hand lotion, the case that came with my current glasses and now holds my iPhone cords, the box from a previous pair of glasses that holds birthday money I'm saving, my wallet, bag of hair and nail accessories for "emergencies", Advil liquid-gels, a coupon book for campus eateries, and eleventy billion receipts.
Needless to say, my purse is a little bit cleaner inside this morning.
Oh, and also? I found the Lowe's coupons on the dining table with the rest of this week's opened mail. So much for having put them in my purse. *sigh*
