I have sore shoulder and chest today.
I don’t think I’m having a heart attack though. I think my shoulder and chest hurt from lugging around my purse. Yep, my purse. I put it on the scale a few minutes ago. My purse weighed nine pounds. Nine.
It doesn’t sound like a lot but you know what? When you pick it up, it’s really heavy. I need to get more exercise but this is ridiculous.
So, I just took my purse and dumped it upside down on the floor of my office. I shook out everything, then I put my wallet, keys, phone, a pen, one lipstick and a hair brush back in. I just reweighed it, it now weighs three pounds.
I now have six pounds of stuff sitting in the middle of my office floor. None of it is alive. None of it belongs to me. My kids hand me stuff all the time, I guess I just shove it in my purse and forget about it. I need to change this.
My plan is to have my kids look through everything tonight and tell me if there is anything in the pile that they need, if there’s not then I’m going to get a shovel and just throw the whole yucky pile out.
I don’t even really know what’s there, I’m too afraid to look. It even smells kinda nasty.
I’ve moved up to my hubby’s office to work. I’ll go back down to my office when all my old purse stuff is gone.
I wonder how much weight my minivan would lose if I could shake it out too?
