I have a hard time with purses. I'm just not into the various colors, patterns, styles - I think something went wrong with my genetic make-up because my mother and her mother, and her mother's mother had hundreds and hundreds of purses. Me? I think I have 3 purses - and I hardly ever use them.
This is what I use....
It's a Wenger, over-the-shoulder pack. And I've been using it as 'my purse' for almost 5 years now. Honestly, at this time in my life I cant afford to waste one of my hands holding a purse - because I have 2 - and soon 3 - little sets of hands that need mine to cross the street, pick them up, take away sticky things....etc etc.
The down side to carrying a pack instead of a purse? Sometimes I think people get the impression I'm a college junkie. And foremost - I think it makes me look like a female Jim Halpert.
See what I mean??
So here's what's inside.
1 wallet - It's usually so stuffed with coins, family passes to museums and aquariums, health cards for 3 kids plus me, etc. - I can barely close the snap.
1 cell phone
3 glass cases - I have to point out here that all 3 are empty. I dont know why I carry them around. All my glasses are in the car where I really need them.
3 bottles of lotion - Ridiculous! But if they stay in my bathroom or my room, somehow I'll never use them.
3 bottles of anti-bactierial stuff - Yes - I'm paranoid.
1 sleeping mask - why?? I don't know how that got in there.
1 bottle of body spray - I think I got this for free at the BYU Health Center. I keep it in there because it amazes the kids when we're waiting in line.
1 grocery shopping list
1 container of floss (sister-in-law helps keep me motivated to take care of my teeth :))
Stay tuned - this coming summer I'll probably have a change of clothes for My Sweetie packed in my bag. We're getting ready for potty training! :(
