fairly weighed

Went to the fair last night and ate lots of yummy food and fed ameenals and watched people screaming on rides and ignored carnies but secretly watched them out of the corner of my eye and allowed myself to enjoy the time.



Today I am throwing things away since we have this massive dumpster sitting in our driveway. I'm starting out by throwing away clothes, and I'm torn. I used to weigh 50 lbs more, less than two years ago. I gained those 50 between 1997 and 2005, steadily over time for the most part. And now I'm just a little nervous about throwing away 3/4 of my wardrobe, ya know? But I'm doing it anyway. Because, just like with being scared, what's wrong with being a little nervous? :)

Toss em. Confidence will grow proportionately with each article pitched.

You look great! I also like the pink sweater with the red hair.

Sometimes people lose lots of weight and they have to replace their entire wardrobe. When this happens, they have to spend actual money on underwear and bras, leaving thrift stores as their only option for acquiring clothes that won't fall off.

Instead of throwing out your clothes, maybe you could donate them to Goodwill. Just a suggestion.

Did you get me any wool?

If I was in France, we’d most definitely go shopping for a new wardrobe. :) :) :)

Bearette, thanks. :)

K, I have three bags full of wool. Are you moving to France so I can given them or do I need to come to you?

¡Hola, Chico!, ... are you saying I dress poorly?!??? ;)

Mateo said...

Nooooo, I’m saying I have a new Visa card that needs to loose its virginity. I closed the other one and this one is [still] shiny.

I was just kidding. I don't even care what you think about how I dress, I assure you. I have no style, and I know that.

Nothing like retail therapy; next Friday night will be killer. :D

I still have clothes that will only fit on my left leg. I'm not sure why I haven't discarded them.

Why throw them away? You could donate them or give them to thrift shops... I mean, you're not a slob or anything are you? The stuff is semi decent?

Poppy Cede said...

Matador, you're buying? SWEET!

Avi, are you referring to those cute little shorts you wear in that photo of you as a kid?
