Sunday, Sunday

What a day.  It started out with the kids and Brian going to climb up to Horsetooth (the verdict from the girls: the way up was a 2/10, the top is a 10, the way down 3 or 7, depending on the girl.)  I took full advantage of their absence to clean out my clothes and bedroom closet.  This weekend I cleaned out the coat closet and my bedroom closet.  That along with the earlier cleaned out linen closet yielded 10 kitchen trash bags full of stuff to be donated, which I did.  Goodwill is now flush with my castoffs. And I was such a good girl, I didn't even shop after I donated.  I did, however buy more trash bags as I used them all in my purge.

I wish I took before and after pictures.  But, the before is so hideous, so embarrassing, I can't do it.  And the after? Well, it doesn't look as good as some people's before pictures.  Still I feel much, much, MUCH better.  I feel lighter and more free.  I love getting rid of stuff!

After the purge and release, I sat down to watch The Game.  Well, The Game sucked.  Big time.  The Packer's season, and therefore my season, is over.  I no longer care about football.  The Superbowl is now meaningless.  If the Packers aren't playing, I don't care.  Bah humbug :P

Anyway, the next stop on the organization train is either kids' clothes or books.  Books would be easier but the aren't nearly as messy as the kids' clothes.  We'll see what I feel like when the next free moment hits me.  I don't think it will be this week as we have 2 Girl Scout meetings, 2 therapy appts (1 in Denver, 1 here), therapy group and the NCHA meeting.  Plus work.  And I told the kids we could hit the museum on Wednesday since we're going to Denver anyway (and we got the museum membership for Xmas from my parents.)

And speaking of my extended family, my brother, who is getting married in June, is going to be a father again in August or September!

And speaking of pregnancy, I need to get rid of my maternity clothes.  It's been over 8 years since I gave birth, almost 3 since I even had a uterus, I think it's time for them to go.  Still, I want them to go to someone who needs them.  Maybe the clothing bank at the Methodist church? I'll figure something out soon as they don't need to be taking up space in my house any longer.

Ok, random train-of-thought blog entry is done for the day.  You're welcome.
