Don’t you hate it when TV stations do that. They’ll tell you there’s some vital food in your pantry that could kill you and there will be details at 11:00 on the news. Eleven p.m. and it’s now 4 p.m. and I am standing in front of the pantry trying to decide what to fix for supper, and something in there could be fatal…
Well, I am working on a big mystery post about my genealogy and I will need your help, but well, it’s not finished yet. So you are getting the teaser now. 🙂 I am trying to get as many of the documents together as possible, so that you can help me with the mystery. The reason I am writing this and not that post, is I can’t find my camera, and one of the most important documents is on microfilm. So while I try and find the camera, you get the teaser. But I promise it is coming soon.
In the meantime, I am trying to clean out my closet. We have to store our decorations in our closet, because there just isn’t anywhere else to do it downstairs and they have to be in cool air, so our closet gets a little overwhelmed by the holidays with boxes coming down, boxes going up, and I also (shh, don’t tell the kids) hid presents in there too, so between the presents and boxes, and clothes that don’t fit, and a box of dolls that #3 decided had to go out of her room in November, the floor of my closet is a little crowded, and my wardrobe choices (what I can reach from the doorway) have become a little limited. So I decided that this weekend I would work a little each day on decluttering, and organizing my closet. I already got rid of one garbage bag of clothes that frankly are just exhausted from being worn. When you pay $3 for a t-shirt, you don’t expect it to last 5 years. So I had to clean out a great deal, which is fine, because I found two white t-shirts that I have only worn a few times that got pushed to the back. Hubby sorts his clothes by type and is adamant that they be sorted as they are hung up and he never has the issues that I have with finding stuff, so I decided I am going to sort pants from tops and start being like him and making myself sort them as they are put away. Hopefully this will insure that I wear everything and not a select few. I have capris for warm days, so right now they are just taking up space. Since our weather can go from 23 degrees to 82 degrees in a matter of hours, I never trade out clothes by season. I may wear shorts today and a parka tomorrow. I have some nice pants that have to be ironed I am leaving for now, but if I don’t make myself iron and wear them, they may go in a month or so. I like wash and wear. No dry clean, no iron.
I also have some clothes that are way too small. I have been holding onto them in case someone discovers a sweetener that makes you lose weight. (Like 10th grade of high school small, lots of weight). But I decided that I was going to let them go, because someone else could be wearing them while they are still in style.
In between, I’ll be working on that mystery post so you guys can help me decide what really happened….
