File under “Things I Can’t Believe It Took Me This Long To Figure Out”:
1) I finally got a cross/body purse. I leave my purse everywhere. Everywhere. A few times this summer, while running outdoor markets, I literally just dropped my purse in the middle of the walkway/street/sidewalk and walked away. For who knows how long, because if I could tell you, then I would not be having this problem. I also forget my purse in vendor tents and I’m lucky I have a very honest group of vendors. Cross body purse. This was a GOOD IDEA. I already basically wear it all day now. By summer it will be an actual body part.
2) I have been fighting the kids to get them to put their coats away and not dump them everywhere, for three years since we moved in here. We have a “coat room” that they never want to put their coats in. I’m tired of talking about it. They’re tired of hearing about it. Why in the HELL didn’t I just put a coat rack in the front hall? WHY?! I haven’t had to mention it once today. Not one single time. They even hung up their snow pants. I didn’t see that coming.
