Promises might come true

For years I've been "threatening" to clean out my husband's side of the clothes closet. He has one half of the closet for his clothes and he has another entire closet for books. I can't really say I've been threatening because I really don't think he would mind if I went through his things and cleaned out a few things. I did it once before after we moved here. He had sweaters that he would wear to high school ski trips. They went with him to our first apartment after we were married. They went with him to our present apartment too. Sometime during our 10 years of marriage he told me that he didn't really like sweaters. When he told me that, I got rid of most of them. It gave him room in his chest of drawers for other things. In the last year or so, he's found a few sweaters that he does like.

I haven't really felt right about cleaning his closet since I haven't touched mine in so long. I guess I was just ready for it. I used to get really depressed when I had to try on clothes. In the last 2 years I've lost 29 lbs. It was just time for me to face it that if it took me that long to lose 29 lbs that it would be at least another 2 years before I got to my goal weight. Having clothing in my closet that I'm not wearing for that long doesn't do anyone any good. The clothes get mashed up because they're jammed in so tight and nothing can be found. Maybe next weekend I will clean his part of the closet. Or maybe the weekend after that. :)

My left foot has been hurting me the last few days. I assumed that I had a dog hair stuck in the skin, but didn't check until after my bath tonight. Boy did it feel good to get that out. A double-coated dog can be dangerous no matter how much you sweep the floor or clean the carpets. Sometimes I'm just a bit too lazy, aren't I?

Oh, Friday we didn't have our birthday lunch. My friend took her car in to the dealership as it's been jumping from 1st to 3rd gear and it wasn't ready by the time we were about to head out. We've rescheduled for Tuesday.

Friday afternoon I got to speak with my husband for a little bit and I got to talk with him tonight just after I finished cleaning my side of the closet. I promised him I would not be up as late tonight as I was last night.

For dinner I had KFC which I regretted. The popcorn chicken or the crispy chicken strips seem to make me burp afterwards.

I'm sure there is something else I wanted to mention but I can't recall what it might have been. I'm a little tired at the moment and I know the dog is ready for bed. When he hasn't been sleeping, he's been trying to use his Corgi Mind PowersTM on me to let me know that it's time to get some sleep.

Phooey

Phooey! The place I was going to take my husband's car for the oil change is closed on Sundays. I should have done it yesterday.

I will probably still get my haircut at one of the places down the street. They open in 40 minutes. Time to take the dog out for his morning walkies!
