Today I was shopping in a clothing store with a couple of small bags and a purse with a shoulder strap. I was in the store about 10 minutes when I realized that my purse was gone. I did not have any idea where it might be since I had come from another store. Of course, I pushed the panic button and within a couple of minutes a store clerk came up to me to see if the purse that had been turned in belonged to me. I was lucky because someone had turned it in and my money and everything else was still inside. I think that I should definitely not take a purse shopping any more--maybe a waist pack or something similiar would work better as I have no idea if I dropped the purse or just set it down. I wonder how many others find shopping in a mall totally exhausting and sometimes overwhelming. Maybe I should stick to the discount stores--one store a day. I can only usually go to a mall on a day that I do not work. I am much too tired to attempt a shopping trip to the mall after work hours. Instead, I usually come home and crash like so many others on this board. By the way, this was only the second day that I have ever used my handicap sticker and I was feeling guilty for having done so. I guess that we need to recognize our limitations and plan accordingly.
