Mary Poppins Bag


I was complaining today how sore my shoulders were. They are always sore and I have no reason… until I emptied my purse… My purse/bags are ALWAYS heavy and this is why:

2 cell phone cables
1 computer charger
A pencil case full of pens and flash drives
2 full water bottles
6 bags of peppermint tea
A 16oz bag of red quinoa
A 16oz bag of regular quinoa (I found a good deal and didn’t empty them out… oops)
A mini package of Everything Ritz Crackers
A Special K Caramel  Pretzel Bite
A bottle of ibuprofen
A tablet
A car charger
A wallet
2 lip gloss/chapstick
1 loose pen
2 receipts
A funny email from a resident’s family member
$22.00 loose paper money
$2.42 in coins
A punch card
My cell phone (which I am using)
A planner AKA my life
And my Surface Pro 3
(Before I took this photo I put my Carpinito Brother’s haul  away… 1 jalapeno, 2 green  peppers, a bunch of green onions, and 1 zuchinni squash… which I carried around Fred Meyer’s thinking I didn’t  need a cart because all I went in for was to get my Free Friday Coupon Treat… and I couldn’t find it)

I wish I had a scale to measure all of this unnecessary STUFF… It actually made me think about how much more unecessary STUFF I am carrying around my life. Deep thoughts today.

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
