30 day photo challenge: days 17-19

(Don't forget to click here to enter my very first - and possibly last?? - give-away as I celebrate 950 posts. Entries will be accepted until 10pm on Tuesday, August 30th.)

Day 17 ~ On The Shelf

Other than dust? BOOKS!! I love books! There are quite a few of these that I haven't even read yet, but I love collecting them!

Day 18 ~ In My Bag

One of the benefits to having so many purses to switch back-and-forth between on a regular basis is that it keeps me from having an excessive amount of stuff in my bag.

I've got all I need right here: hair spray, deoderant (yes, I know it's men's), vaseline for my addictive lips, hand sanitizer, gum (both for me and the girls), prescription sunglasses, wallet, cheque book, coupon book and wet naps. My cell phone is usually in my purse too, but it was charging on the kitchen counter when I took this picture.

Day 19 ~ Where I Slept

On the couch! And no, not because hubby and I had a fight (he wasn't even home). But because when the girls were going to bed, they were freaked out by the big lightning storm that had come upon us. So to make things easier, I set them up for a sleepover in the basement and promised them that I would sleep there too when I went to bed. Of course by the time I was ready for bed, the storm had long passed and I was very tempted to sleep in my own bed. But in case they woke up in the middle of the night and didn't know where I was (which didn't happen, of course!) I figured I should stick to my promise.

You're such a good mom, sleeping in the basement. :)
Annika has never woken up during a storm. I thought maybe the one last night would wake her (and scare her), but it seems we've dodged that bullet for a little bit longer!

I love to read too! Look like a great collection you've got started there!
