Today has definitely had its ups and downs but I'm happy to say that it has ended on a good note.
Quattro is seven months old. Back in February Numero Uno and I went out to eat with some friends and I needed a pair of jeans that were not maternity. I finally found a pair and was not crazy about how low riding they were but they fit and looked decent, so there! I bought them. And have hated, no loathed, them ever since. I've been longing for the day when they could go. Well, today my friends is that day.
Since I got the book "The Happiness Project" from my BFF around April, I missed out on chapters January, February, and March and I'm now going back and reading January since I finished up August early. January is about decluttering and the author shared how nice it was to clean out her closet. She let go of the baggage of clutter - "free" clutter, "one day" clutter, "old" clutter. Tonight I tackled my closet. As I went through it I found three pair of non maternity jeans folded over hangers. I tried each one on and low and behold, two of the three fit! I believe it is in part due to the fact that I went to a boot camp last night with aforementioned BFF and today the scales said I finally reached the 10 pound loss mark:) I immediately found the loathed pair of jeans and put them in the give away bag. Yay, me!
There are still a few items hanging in my closet that I hate to part with because I think one day I would like to wear them. I probably need to just let them go. I'm torn. Isn't it hilarious that "I'm torn" over articles of clothing that I have not worn for some time but may possibly wear them in the future? Aaaahhh!
On a positive note, I did part with the full "can can" slip that I wore under my wedding dress nine years ago that has moved with me four times and hung in my closet doing nothing:) Please tell me, why did I hang onto that slip?
