My dad always know what will cheer me up.
These are the real eggs I colored with my mom. My fav is the speckled egg.
In happier news, I have been at my parents house on Staten Island for the past few days after I spent Easter here. I am on spring break from school (woohoo!) and decided yesterday that I seriously needed to do some spring cleaning. It was incredibly overdue. I had a ton of clothes here that needed to be sorted through, most of which I honestly hadn’t worn in years. I am afflicted with “Well, I may need to wear it someday”-syndrome. But this weekend I was on a mission and instituted the 1 year rule: if I haven’t worn it in a year, I will throw it out. I threw out some outfits that I couldn’t believe I ever, ever wore out in public. There’s some embarrassing things in these bags…
Four bags to donate. There was also one bag (not shown) that just went right in the trash.
Man, I am good.
That’s what happens when you put your mind to something. Look at all those clothes. The sad part is that I still have a TON both at my apartment and here at my parents house. Where did I even get all these?!!
After the clothes were sorted, my mom and I moved random clothes from closet to closet to better organize where everyone’s stuff is. None of my siblings live at home anymore and each of us has clothes randomly located throughout the house. I probably had some things in every closet in the whole house. Totally unnecessary. So my mom and I successfully remedied the situation.
We also went through my little sisters room and threw away her old furniture. Her furniture has been around probably since before I was born (for reference, I am 23). Some of the drawers didn’t even open anymore so it was about time this stuff went. This was no simple task since we had to empty everything and lug the pieces outside for the garbage men to pick up. That stuff was heavy and I immediately counted it as my workout for the day. Who needs to life weights when you can lift furniture instead?
All the trash outside, and yes a photo of Johnny Depp on my sisters old drawers.
How’s your spring cleaning going?
