I have all these fascinating half-conceived blog posts rolling around in my head, but the unfortunate truth is that there are only so many hours in a day. And so when I actually sit down, to put fingers to keyboard, pretty much the only thing that comes out is, "Packing is haaaaaaaaaaaard. Whiiiiiiiiiiine!"
I thought that perhaps that was getting a little boring, but Green Bean assures me that you all love to hear me whine. So if this post displeases you, you know where to direct your hate mail. Kidding, GB, kidding! I would never direct haters to you. (Haters: it's totally her fault.)
So this weekend, I finally went shopping! My mom has told me that I am no longer allowed to discuss certain things on my blog, so I won't tell you what I went shopping for, merely that I went shopping for Things That May Not Be Mentioned. I got fitted at Nordstroms and it turns out, conveniently for Nordstroms, that I am a size that only exists at Nordstroms. So there you go. I shelled out an amount that rivals the GDP of Malta, but whatever. It's done.
Then the next day, Honda and Miss V came over so that they could
They threw out everything they hated, and I ... let them. In the end, we produced a ginormous bag of clothes to take to Goodwill. (Apparently there was lots of hate.) I think Honda and Miss V were surprised at how willing I was to let them throw out stuff, but I have to say, it's amazing how much easier it is to cut the crap when it means that you have that much less stuff to pack.
