The other day I was at the second hand/antique store in town and found the cutest little purse I have ever seen. It is a long pink alligator look bag by PRADA. ($5!) But what makes it perfect, you ask?
It has a padlock and a key! I can lock my purse and my hubby will stay out of it! I was so excited! He is really bad about going into my purse and taking money, going thru my wallet. It drives me NUTS. It's totally a respect thing for me. He is always going thru my stuff.
Case in point: I have a little box that I got when I graduated high school. It's got some jewelry, pictures, little things I want to keep. Most of it's junk, but it's MY junk. Well, ever since our son was born, every time I would get one of the gold Sacagawea dollars I would put it up for him. When Annie was born, I started saving them for her as well. I didn't have very many, because I wouldn't get them that often, but when I did have one it got put up in this little box. Well, the other day I was looking for something and noticed the dollars weren't there. I had around 8 or 9 of them. (YOu can see where this is going, can't you?)
Yup, my husband and gone thru my stuff and taken all those dollars that I had been saving for the last 7 years. Every single one of them was gone. And then he had the audacity to LIE to me about it. He took it for POP and CANDY. I was so mad I couldn't see straight. He is ALWAYS going thru my wallet and purse. Even after REPEATED requests for him not too, he still does.
So, when I found this little locking purse I was in heaven. Now I don't have to worry about him going thru my personal things, and I don't have to get mad at him when he does!
