I cleaned out a closet...

Did you know that when Stacey and Clinton throw away someone's awful, unfitting clothing and they have an intense emotional reaction...that's NORMAL?  Did you know that? I didn't. I always thought, whatever, those people are waaaaay too connected to their clothing. Well, this is me, chewing on my own words/medicine, whatever idiom strikes your fancy...

I wish I had before pictures. But I don't. I only have after shots. BUT, when I finally mastered my feelings about getting rid of the clothes I didn't really need, I just started chucking things on the floor of my closet. And when I was done, the level on the ground was ABOVE the shoe holder you see below. Honestly, I was standing on it, and I was higher than that.
I just have to say, thank you to those who have been so helpful and supportive. No idea why it was so hard, but holy gracious. I had such an effusive reaction. I was a mess. BUT, when I was done, I felt SOO relieved.
Seriously, I tried to do the immensity of the situation some justice here, but instead it just looks like a crime scene from when Jabba the Hutt apparently died in my room...  BUT, honestly, the pile was so huge. It covered the floor in the pic and at it's tallest, it was probably about 3.5 to 4 feet tall.
Mucho, mucho excess gone. WHEW.

I know. Random.


  1. Good for you! I need to do the same thing... and it IS hard!

  2. I'm so happy for you! I DO know why it was hard for you. But you did it! :D
