Weeded Out the Closet (All of It)


Tuesday, July 09, 2013

First of all, I have to say that after trying to clean the whole house and wash all the clothes, I concluded that we have too much stuff. Last night (I got my second wind after all), I weeded out of the closet and got rid of almost all of my clothes; they were all extra large or old maternity clothes. As soon as I have the umph, my son's closet is next. I'm starting to think, well, it's more than a thought, that I'm just keeping clothes I love. No more love, adios. As luck would have it, one of the neighborhood restaurant workers was walking by, and my husband gave her two full bags of clothes. I don't know how he weaved that into the conversation, but apparently she is my former size.

To ease up my load, my husband decided to take all of the clothes and blankets to the laundromat today because I'm not feeling well and am really unmotivated. (So unmotivated, he had to make me breakfast; my DH gets a gold star for variety.) In fact, even though it's 9a.m., I'm about to take a nap. However, I still have to do all the floors, and today is the day I normally clean the bathroom. So, I'm trying to sort out what to do next, slowly. My son is feeling much better, and I know this because he's pranked me a couple of times and is defying even my minor requests with a sly smile on his face. I don't know why kids think that's funny.

We both have a doctor's visit today, and if he clears us, we are going camping this weekend. Our last vacation got cut short, and I want to go hiking or biking. Anyway, I need to get more sleep. My head is pounding, and I can't hear a damn thing out of my left ear.

Who gets this sick in the summer? Sheesh.

    Wow, you are Superwoman even when sick! I have taken up health and fitness as an excuse not to clean the house. Must have priorities, right?!

Seriously, way to go purging the closets. I did mine a bit ago but they need it again. And the house, too. Too much stuff - it's ridiculous.

Camping sounds way fun - hope you are all healthy and ready to go. Summer colds are bad, they hang on forever.

    We started having to do a quarterly purge in this house. Our most recent one is 6 months overdue I might add emoticon

Good luck with your house projects! Those can be a bear.

    Good for you getting rid of those clothes- that is freedom!

And the kid defying you - that's got to be universal.

    Sometimes that second wind sneaks up and attacks without notice, even when you don't want it. lol

    Sorry you are not feeling well. Please give yourself a break and let the housework sit for a day or two. I am old-er and looking back I remember spending every Saturday having to clean the whole house. I was a single parent, working full time with 3 teenage boys. I wish now that I had let some of those Saturdays slide and spent more time with my sons. They are all grown up now with lives of their own. I see them at holidays, birthdays, and family gatherings, but boys just don't call you on a regular basis to let you know how they are doing. I am happy for them and I have a great life, but I'm sure the house would not have fallen down if I had scaled back just a little.

Hope you get cleared to go camping. emoticon
