Closet Clean Out

Over the past few years, my weight has fluctuated drastically, and with it my clothes sizes. My closet is stuffed to the brim with clothes that no longer fit. I can’t bring myself to get rid of them because I love some of the particular pieces of clothing and I use the hope of fitting into them again one day as my motivation. However, in the meantime, my closet is full of clothes that are too big, fit just right, or are too small. I need to do a serious purge.

I’ve heard about the method of putting all the hangers in the closet the wrong way, and once you wear the item turn the hanger the right way, then after a year get rid of all the clothes on hangers that are still facing the wrong way. But that takes a year. And I pretty much know which clothes I’m not wearing already.

I found this pin on Pinterest last night when I should have been asleep (a serious problem of mine), and it helped to give me the kick in the butt I need to actually start cleaning out my closet and getting rid of stuff.

I don’t know why I feel such an emotional attachment to some of the clothes and have had such a hard time until now getting rid of them, but I need to get over it. My closet is a disaster. Maybe it’s because some of the  stuff has never even been worn or is in brand new condition, and getting rid of it makes me feel so wasteful. I guess I could try to sell some of the items. I think I’ve seen bloggers doing that right?

Guess what I’m doing this weekend.

WHAT?!

This isn’t a real post because I don’t feel very good and don’t have the energy or inspiration for a real one. Instead I want to share some things that have made me think “WHAT?!” lately.

{ONE}

Beyonce has a religion. I’m not kidding. It’s called The National Church of Bey. Yesterday I was informed by my coworkers that this new cult religion is in the process of erecting a temple right here in Atlanta. I should note, Beyonce’ doesn’t officially endorse, nor did she start The National Church of Bey. On the site they have her depicted at Jesus, which I feel might be very offensive, but I’m Jewish so what do I know? They apparently say “surfbort” instead of “amen” in reference to one of her songs where she sings about riding a surfboard, and not the kind that goes in the ocean. I’ll let you figure that one out for yourself. I find it likely (hope) their claim that Beyonce’ is a deity walking among us is more tongue in cheek than actual belief, but who knows. Either way, to each their own. I guess it’s better than worshiping Charles Manson.

Why do women put on makeup WHILE driving. And I don’t just mean while stopped at a light, I have seen women doing it while their car was in motion. I don’t understand either scenario, and resent that people like that are on the road, putting others in danger. I have a coworker who does it and in her defense she said “it only takes five minutes to do in the car.” Um it also only takes 5 minutes to do at home in front of your mirror, do it before you walk out the door.

People who stand outside Piedmont Hospital on Peachtree Street outside the hospitals no-smoking zone in hospital gowns, hooked up to IV’s holding onto their IV pole with one hand and smoke and cigarette with the other one. Clearly you have been admitted to the hospital, maybe you should skip the cigarette.

{FOUR}

I’ve been doing an informal poll about whether I should keep my hair dark or start the path back to being blonde. Every woman so far says keep it dark, and every straight male says go blonde. The non-straight men have voted dark. Now I’m just confused.

{FIVE}

The following Google search terms have directed people to my blog:

  •  my ugly face (thank you Google)
  • naked in lavender field
  • why does my brain get fuzzy and my eyes get blurry after eating celery (by far my favorite)
  • picture of lady asleep drooling on desk with hair tied to chair
  • can my step sister take me to the doctors to get a ultrasound in fl
  • just lately anything remotely touching makes me cry
  • is he trying to hide his alcohol drink by putting sliced oranges in it

I definitely recommend checking out your referral search terms. It’s always good for a laugh.
