Cleaning Out the Drawers


I’ve been through the closet once.  Almost ruthlessly.  I was proud of me.

I was hardest on the sweaters, but I really didn’t go through the pants at all.  Perhaps I should feel guilty, but I don’t.  It’s that time of year again.  If I don’t wear something, it should go out.  If it no longer works, it should go out….bottom line.

For example, I have a much loved white Chico’s sweater.  Heavy cable knits keep one warm when life is lived without a heater.  I love this sweater until I put it on….then it grows.  It bags, it sags, it hangs like a ghost costume on a little kid.  No matter how much I loved it, I stopped wearing it.  I finally got rid of it.

Yesterday wasn’t a good day.  I made it to the pool, but after that I couldn’t stay awake.  Despite all my good intentions toward my drawers and the pants section of my closet, I snoozed and was chilled through with a dash of nausea.  I woke ok this morning…so far.  I’m not quaking, shivering, and snoozing over this entry like I did with the library piece yesterday.  This is great progress. 

Today is a walk day.  I’ll walk up to the library and home.  Then if I don’t fall asleep, I will tackle a drawer or two.  Laughing at myself, of course.  I’ve never been noted for having neat drawers.

  • Reading:  An old Noah Webster.

  • Balance:  Feeling good this morning.


    1. I REALLY want to get rid of multiples, junk, stuff, clutter, etc. So much to do, so little time to do it.

      Okay, that's an excuse. :)

      I hope you'll have a good day and that you body will stop being so fickle!

      RYN on my entrepreneur post. Most interesting. I'm sorry about Janey.

    2. Sun finally appeared here and I dog walked. So who needs 24 pairs of lime colored pants? Dianne

    3. It will give you such a wonderful sense of accomplishment to have neat and organized drawers, closets, and cupboards. If you really want me to, I'll take the next plane over the Pacific and help you! Take care, Mage.

    4. Your description of your loved but sagging sweater had me smiling. Poor sweater.
      I hope your walk went well and your body stayed awake while you tackled those drawers.

    5. Ah, the dozing doesn't bother me much any longer, no guilt, no remorse over things not done. Things will get done, when I am well rested...

    6. I've had sweaters like that. You start out feeling like you look pretty good but soon you look like a rag! If this tiredness continues, maybe you should see the doctor - or at least give him a call.


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
