{Why?}

I have dry lips. They are always chapped and I am always biting them. It is a sorry habit that my mom was never able to cure (biting my lips, not that they are dry). I could never find a lip balm that worked until a couple of years ago. That was when I discovered the magic of Rosebud lip salve. It delivered when all other lip balms had failed. Rosebud lip salve makes me happy. I always have a jar with me and I get very nervous if I am not able to reapply on a moments notice (i.e. I left it at home, in the car, etc). Sometimes I play a game in my head about what I would have with me if I could only have 3 things on a deserted Island. Rosebud is on the top of the list.
However, there must be a troll in my purse who feels the same way because I have lost 3 new, hardly used, tins this last month. Sooo frustrating! They only sell it at Anthropologie, it is 8 bucks and I have to make a special trip to get it. I lost Rosebud #2 this weekend and so had to make a Gateway run (again). I was smart this time and bought two new ones just in case. All was going well until today, when yet again, I couldn't find my lip balm. It has been all of 4 days. Luckily I safely stowed the back-up tin in the zipper pocket of my purse, but still, it would have been nice to get a week out of the old/new one. Grrhh!
For some reason this really, really irritates me. Sure, I might be stressed about starting my new business and going to the doctor a billion times, but the continual lose of lip balm is starting to put me over the edge. Maybe I should just pick up a new tin every time I'm at Anthropologie. I can store them like a crazy lady in my closet and never, ever let anyone come near them, or touch them or smell them. They are all mine!!!!!
So this is my trivial moment of the day. I should be ashamed, but I am not. I would probably be more embarrassed if I told you how I threw a minor tantrum this weekend when I first discovered the second to the last one missing. Lets just say I have been a little stressed lately.

This is exactly why I like purses with a lot of pockets. A pocket for everything.

I feel that same way about my Burt's Bees chapstick. I have moments when I open up my purse, GASP, I can't find Burt!!!! Where is BURT???? Then, relax,, I remember, I stored him in another compartment in my purse. Relax, breathe, find your breath. I have four backups stored in various locations in my house, car and backyard.

Ok, I found it on amazon, and you could just order a whole bunch so you always have some one hand. They had differnt scents too-who knew. I also am a big fan of rosebud lip salve.

It was fun to finally see you! You need to come in and chat more often. Sorry about the abrupt good bye, it's hard when phones are ringing and people are coming in!

Anytime you need to chat about stress, photography, anything let me know..you are so cute

You and Scott should come and hang out with Bob and me...I can show you the enormous cat in the glass case we have in our apartment. It takes up a lot of room, but what can we say? (I'm a teaser, don't think I am rude! :)
