As you all know, I have a short attention span! And with that, I digress from the adventurous weekend we had last weekend and show you, Project ORDER!! I am again fast and furious on the clean up/ out mode in my house.
Today I actually had an upper GI scope. FINALLY!! And before anyone freaks, it was A-OK. They basically found nothing. But as many of you may know, my reflux had gotten out of control. (Here I go again... there's a bird!) Anyway, I was up ALL night long for months!! I mean, sleeping on a wedge, about three pillows, a prescription med twice a day, handful of Tums before bedtime, and usually again when up with the coughing and choking, and sometimes an extra over the counter reflux med midday. And then..... I gave up Diet Cokes. And I mean cold turkey like. And guess what. GONE! NOTTA. Not even taking a single pill!! I wouldn't have believed it if anyone had tried to tell me. Not even sure how I figured it out myself. I actually think it was God if you really wanna know. He let me know, time to quit, then He let it be. No headaches. No real cravings even!
Ta Daaaaah. But, kept my appointment at the GI doc. I still had some other symptoms that were plaguing me, and still can't eat normally. And as I predicted, it's all lapband related. Ugh. Oh well.
Now, what was I talking about? Oh yeah... my closet.
So, you are seeing the BEFORE pictures.
No rhyme or reason to the short sleeve, long sleeve, summer, winter, etc. And I can't wear about 1/2 the stuff in there. (again!)
We've taken so many trps this summer, that half the bags I packed are still full, just sitting on the floor, waiting to be attended to
I mean, seriously.
I don't even have any organizaton to my purses, bags or shoes anymore. And it has to STOP.
I am having a jewelry OVERLOAD problem. I think I am about to sell a whole bunch of it. I have found a "swap" place on faceook, where it is basically like an online garage sale.
I think it is primarly for local folks, as you have to meet to exchange goodies for moolah. Today, KK and I did Gabbi's closet. OH MY!!
I kid you not when I say we have about 30 pair of shoes. And probably 75 or more items of clothes. And then there's this... the top of my closet. See all the little tabs of paper? That is where KK helped me about a year ago sort my clothes into the ones I could actually wear, and the ones that are about a size too small. I couldn't bear to throw them away, sure that I would lose some weight. But, look at those piles.
And that was just on one side... here's the other. It is time to get rid of them. Especially now that I have found an outlet to make a little side cash. I am NOT a waster! I cannot stand to throw ANYTHING away! I usually do the hand me down deal with my girls' clothes. ANd as for mine, I called someone who I knew was about a size behind me and let them take a big wad of what they wanted. But, there's so much more to deal with now.
If you are from West Monroe area, be checking out the Twin City Swap Swap (or something like that on Facebook), because ol Mel is about to RID herself of clutter... that means my clothes, the girls clothes, suitcases, extra bags, scarves, jewelry, housewares, etc. I am kinda looking forward to it.
And this is the after... please note the color coordination.
And the fact that all the hangers are the same. I just about can't stand having mismatched hangers.
And guess what... I can wear EVERY one of these pair of pants.
And these too.... at least for the meanwhile. I hate that Labor Day rule on white pants. Oh, who am I kidding... I dont' mind silly rules like that. If I wanna wear white pants, I wear em!
WoW! Would ya look at that pants rack?! Bliss.
As I was working on the shirt rack, I had an epiphany. I really, really, really like black and white striped shirts.
And I kinda favor black in general
MOre on this later. Or maybe more on mine and the girls' trip. Or maybe what's up at MMPT. Or who knows... I'm a little flighty lately. Look. There's a bird!
