Give and Get

I should be going to bed happy because I finally have 2 days off in a row, but I'm too stressed! I have (very belated) plans to go car insurance shopping and DMV-sitting tomorrow. I fully anticipate this taking all day. Not my idea of a low-stress day off, but it's my own fault for putting it off for so long. So instead of lying in bed stressing about something that I can't change (it HAS to get done this week and no one can do it for me), I'll blog.

A few days ago, out of nowhere, I decided it was time to clean the closet and go through my old clothes.

I think it was guilt due to buying a new skirt and running pants, an iPod (totally unused at the best price ever), and 2 new books.

Either way, Ross was so excited I volunteered to clean something that he practically jumped away from the computer to help!

I'm a pack rat. I love getting new things (although I restrain myself and hardly ever do), but I have a hard time letting go of old things.

Exhibit A:

Guess when I bought those jean shorts in the top left corner?

1998, baby. That's vintage Old Navy! And I probably wore them as recently as last summer (*hangs head in shame*). The other two are from high school, and probably getting a little too short for a 25 year old.

Exhibit B:

One of my favorite "nice" outfits in college.

Ross thinks it's hideous.

Exhibit C:

My beloved reversible dress from Express for junior prom. (That's junior in high school, of course).

I think it looks hot with the ankle socks.

Sadly, all of these (and much, much more) went in a pile.

And that pile joined the other piles in the bag.

And now our closet looks beautiful.

If only I could organize the rest of my life in the space of an hour!
