Oh Sparkers, what a month this has been! Only five days in and it's been a woozy already!
Last night after work I got home and realized that my to-do list was getting increasingly longer and would continue to do so if I didn't actually start it. So one of my tasks was to clean out my shorts drawer. I actually have multiple shorts drawers, depending on the type so I needed to clean them all out. I cleaned out my running clothes last week, so these were just casual shorts. Which I rarely wear. I started with the bottom drawer and got two trashbags: one was for trash, the other was for donation. After going through almost all my drawers, I have a trashbag full of trash (not all clothes, don't worry) and a trashbag full of donations. I feel sooooo much better after purging my dresser drawers! I have one drawer left tonight--bluejeans--but that might wait until tomorrow.
I have really been into cleaning and purging lately and am really getting rid of a bunch of crap. Anything I know we don't need I'm giving away or throwing out. Anything that's broken is getting thrown out. I'm really feeling this easier, lighter lifestyle. I just keep WAY too much stuff so this has all really helped me see that I don't *need* any of the junk I'm keeping. If you recall, April is my month to work hard and stay strong. I am really committing to working out and eating healthy for this month to get my mind back on track. The other junk in my life is really weighing me down, so this kind of all goes hand in hand. I'm working to get my body cleansed and tight, so I want my house to be the same. I don't want to spend any more time worrying about the junk piling up, wondering when I'll find time to clean, etc etc. This month is time for spring cleaning in every aspect of my life!
Speaking of Spring..it was in the 40s this morning and will be again tonight. Love it! Today's high was about 72 and tomorrow is 75. Perfect!! I wish this weather was year-round!! Poor DSS only has one jacket with a hood so I also decided this morning that I need to get in his room and box up all of the clothes that doesn't fit him anymore so I can see what he has and what he needs. Like jackets with hoods. Am I a bad mom that only one of his jackets has hoods?! Growing up all but one of my jackets had hoods (to protect us from ear infections) and he's the exact opposite...oy. But he does have two cool beanies that have ear flaps that he loves to wear so I guess that makes up for the jacket situation. But I'll still try to find another jacket for him with a hood. Hopefully I can find one on end-of-season clearance for cheap for him to wear next winter. That would be nice!
I should probably jet outta here. My goal is to get to bed EARLY tonight so I can actually wake up when my alarm goes off in the morning and get a hardcore workout in. Bob Harper is staring at me from beside the t.v. Tomorrow I take him on.. I bought a shirt dress this weekend on sale at NY&Co. Super cute but a tad tight in weird places, so my goal is to wear it May 1st and look hot in it! Hopefully Bob, Jillian, and Jackie can get me there! (:
