Packing my Bags

Valerie, 5:00am


I'd definitely consider myself a morning person and three days a week I get up at 4:30am to make it to the gym before work. After my yoga class, I shower and get ready at the gym so I pack a bag with my work clothes. If I have plans after work, I pack a separate bag for that. I carry my yoga mat and my enormous handbag as well. On this particular morning last week, my bags got a bit out of hand and Gabe said I looked like a Sherpa and had to take a picture. Once he told me what a Sherpa is, I could not stop laughing. I've attached a few pictures to compare.

The Sherpa are an ethnic group from the most mountainous region of Nepal, high in the Himalayas. Sherpas migrated from eastern Tibet to Nepal within the last 300–400 years. They are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local terrain.

Hilarious!!! I always feel like a sherpa. You look like a much more organized one than I do. You, know...I have one grocery bag on each of my ten fingers and a pair of shoes stuffed into my purse along with a bag of dog food, and an umbrella? I usually do this while balancing a coffee as well and it's only because I'm too lazy to make more than one trip from my car to my apt.
