Random things I saw today….

 

In the parking lot of a restaurant I saw –

The best damn car seat covers…

Ever.

If these don’t stop your mother in law from asking you for a ride?

Nothing will.

At Goodwill I saw –

Technically no, Richard…. no one said sale.

It’s just thrifting.

But may I say…..eeewww.

Clearly there is no quality control in the thrift store business.

This was a sleeve of a blouse with hair covered velcro on the end.

Why did it have hair covered velcro on the end?

 

 

It’s Goodwill. How the hell should I know?

And finally I saw…

A full grown pregnant doe terrified of a chipmunk.

He was sitting on the edge of the stone wall, chipping… as chipmunks are wont to do.

And she wouldn’t come any closer.

I don’t speak chipmunk, but maybe….

He’d had a bad day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The purge continues…

No, not that kind.

Although now that I think about it….

Maybe one night would be alright.

No…

I’m talking about my  damn it, the shelves are about to break  walk in closet clothing purge.

Last week I sorted through 107 pairs of jeans and capris.

This week? I attacked the shirts.

Should I tell you there were 133 stacked there…. and that’s not counting what was hanging or hiding in 3 large bureaus?

No… I don’t think I will.

 

w-oh

 

Purging is work.

And time consuming.

Not to mention depressing as hell when you realize how many items you actually can’t fit into anymore.

 

 

(If you’ve never done this, and have no idea what I’m talking about?

You’re too thin…. and I don’t think we can be friends.)

What to keep?

What to discard?

I purged.

And have 4 more bags to donate to Salvation Army.

Yes, I hated to give up the Sometimes I Amaze Myself tee shirt… because damn it, sometimes I do!

But you have to be ruthless when you purge.

Before – 133.

After –  47.

Ruthless.

I was ruthless I tell you.

Apparently just like the sadistic bananas at your local grocer’s.

Help me out here…

 

Like most humans, I have two legs.

Alright, and some cats as well.

So how is it possible that I had 107 pairs of jeans, slacks and capris in my closet?

 

IMG_4353

 

107.

So… 214 leg coverings.

 

 

How did it happen….

Is there a trouser fairy I’m unaware of?

Or do they breed when the lights go out?

Something had to be done.

So I tried on 98 pieces of clothing.

This was in no way enjoyable and looked something like this:

 

too-many-jeans

 

(If you don’t have fat and skinny sections in your closet? Please move along, I don’t tolerate that kind of self control here.)

I know, I know.

The stack had gotten a little out of hand.

But look, I’m donating all of these…

And I managed to organize a small section of shelf.

 

IMG_4354

 

Woo hoo! I can see the wall.

Yay me.

But now?

Someone needs to talk to the shirts.

 

IMG_4355

 

Because I’m getting a little overwhelmed.

 

when-you-cant-decide-do-i-want-to-do-a-full-closet-purge-or-go-shopping

 

Yeah, it’s a tough call.

 

Because a girl has to take advantage of extra closet space when it presents itself…. right?
