This and that


What are you lookin at? The tail is blurry because he was wagging it. He's been trapped inside for days since we've had rainy weather the last five days. Today is supposed to be nice though so maybe I will be able to squeeze in a doggie park visit for him.

It's not a holiday up here like it is in the US. Our holiday was last Monday which is why we took off to New York. That said, I don't work today except for an evening meeting I'm attending to discuss work issues. This coincides nicely with my going on the wagon. Gonna dry out for a while and see if I feel better overall. I've enjoyed being a lush but there's a fine line between enjoying and depending. I'm going to figure out where that line is and respect it. At any rate, my liver will enjoy the respite.


Yesterday, we cleaned out the closet. We culled 4 giant trash bags of garments out of there. The rule applied: if we haven't worn it in a year, away it goes. There were many items where we held it up and asked, "Is this yours?" "I don't know." "Well, do you know where it came from?" "Nope." And into the trash it went. (We take the clothes to the Salvation Army type place.) This picture would probably have been more impressive if I'd taken a before picture first. At the end of our activity, I felt all smug. Then I realized I'm really acting my age gleaning such enjoyment from cleaning out a closet.


My smug look. Ooh, look got the hairs cut for summer too. Don't need to do anything to them - no comb, no gel, no nothing. That's all I got today, later gaters.

I congratulate you on the closet culling. I'm trying to do the same at present time as we are moving on Thursday. I'd rather not move things that are past their 'best before' date

Smart move with cleaning out the closet. Greg and I just got through doing ours too.

Jim said...

Thanks for the 'reminder' to do just the same in our closet! It's been a while.
Think of the all the $$$ you'll save after the liver kisses you too! Good luck!

How long are you detoxing for? It's kind of funny because just this morning, I was thinking about becoming an alcoholic. Maybe I won't now. :)

I love a good closet cleaning! I usually go through our stuff every six months or so. I haven't done it for awhile though. I know I need to get rid of about ten pairs of shorts though, because my ass is just too big for them and I need to get real about it.

*Sigh*

You know you have a lot of clothing when you ask each other, 'Is this yours?'

I love how big your closet is.

You've perfected your Mona Lisa smile :)

I'm all giddy that it's going to be sunny all week.

I NEED everything in my closet. It's true! All 50 pairs of shoes too. I don't have a problem. I don't. Really I don't...

Summer clean out is coming down the pike though; if I want to move, I only want to move stuff I need.

I too just go my no comb, no gel, no nothing haircut. Love it!

Weather here has been beautiful. Will send some your way.

Georgie is just too adorable!

I noticed and liked the new haircut in the previous post, but didn't mention it out of fear of seeming stalker like.

It seems like several people I know on the blogosphere are taking a little holiday from the drinking.

Looking good, TW.

By the way, the fine line between enjoying and depending -- that one's going in my repertoire. Well said and so true.

Great pic of you and Georgie too.

Have fun on the wagon. I'm with Rox, thinking of jumping off.
