So long Mary Poppins bag

I love big bags. I like being able to have everything I need with me at all times. Who knows when you might need a Pepto or some hand sanitizer? I like to be prepared.

I recently hurt my back while exercising. I think this is a sign that I'm not meant to exercise. It's like that time I burnt my mouth on a Lean Cuisine, I totally should have had a burger. I can't even pin point a specific moment where I hurt my back, I just woke up the next morning after lifting weights with a horrible pain in my upper back between my shoulders. It's been 8 days and I'm still in pain.

If my back is going to heal I need to rest it and not put extra stress on it. My purse weighs a ton. I'm pretty sure if anyone tried to steal it they would fall over with the unexpected weight. I have come to terms with that fact that I need to lighten my bag load. No more Mary Poppins bag. Go see someone else if you need a coat rack or a plant.

I just have to interject and state that I was totally Michael Banks and could not snap as a child. I can sort of snap now but it's still pretty pathetic. I would totally get stuck in the closet with doors opening and closing.

It's been a little bit of an adjustment not having all the things with me but I will admit it has been helping my back. Those coat racks are heavy.

I think this means that I have to do some shopping for cute little wristlets right?

It's for my health! I should start a kickstarter "money for cute wristlets to save Ginny's back."


  1. That is a cute wristlet. I like big bags to but I also use a wristlet as a wallet that I can grab and go when I don't want to lug the whole thing around. Also, I can't snap either. I can halfway do it on my left hand but not at all on the right. My husband teases me constantly about it. Hope your back feels better!!

    1. My regular wallet is pretty large but I love it. It's probably why my bag is so heavy. I'm glad I'm not the only bad snapper.
