Note to Self

stuffed purseSomething is wrong. For two weeks my neck has been killing me. I have been messing with pillows and making sure I’m sitting straight. And, then, it dawned on me as I  tossed my purse onto the passenger seat and the light/bell went on signalling that I would be dead shortly if I did not harness my  purse.  My purse has outgrown its booster seat.

Just thought I’d share in case anyone else has a neck ache.

Purse: I took out two tape measures – giant 36′ metal ones not the cute  yellow plastic ones seamstresses use, a tiny can of V8 (it must have been a good idea once) and a stick of Andy’s deodorant.  (Now that I no longer drive Andy to and from practice, I don’t care that much how he smells.)  Tossed the “new” purse on the passenger seat and it’s all good.

(Note this is not my actual purse . . . just a stolen internet image to illustrate my point. Thank you jewelrypurse.blogspot.com for the image.)

  1. I hope your neck feels better.
    During the school year I carry a backpack to and from work.
    On weekends I try to tuck my tiny wallet into a pocket. I don’t like being encumbered.

  2. I would so love to do this but, I feel helpless without my purse – a giant purse. I’ve tried small ones – love them in theory but . . . where am I going to put my emergency can of V8????

  3. I wear a cross body purse, to spread the weight out. Other purses just slide off my shoulder anyway.

  4. I keep my weird emergency supplies in the glove box. It’s stuffed full with granola bars (only non-melty kind), jerky, deode, nail clippers, etc. My bag is not dainty, god knows– I need to have the ibubrofen, fold-up shopping bags, tiny notebook for ideas, and wallet on me at all times– but it did stop hurting my neck.

  5. Deana, I have all my emergency stuff in the car too. Unfortunately, Andy has the car more often than I do these days. :::sigh:::: just when I think I have things figured out.
