Some Scenes From The Weekend...
Not the prettiest of photos, but I couldn't resist sharing the fruits of our purging labors...
The weekend was largely spent practicing the “ordinary arts”, which included tearing through the girlies’ closets and drawers and weeding out the things that A. they no longer wear or B. no longer fit (constituting over half of their wardrobes collectively). We also did a little room swapping (we moved Bryan's office out of the guest room to make it cozier for my folks) and in the process managed to come up with (wait for it) 14(!) bags of discards to donate. It was epic friends. And surely this speaks to some underlying odd aspect of my personality, but I've never had so much fun. I love getting rid of stuff...it's addictive. So much so that in the midst of my purging fervor, I inadvertently tossed two pairs of shoes that I still wear...regularly. I was clearly out of control. But I've moved on and am now picturing some kindly stranger happily traipsing around in my shoes. They were only shoes after all, yes?
Beyond the great giveaway of 2011, the rest of the weekend was a mash-up of spending as much time as possible with Bryan's dad (who's not doing so well...) and making banana bread on the advice of my dear friend Kristie who swears by "baking it out" when things start to feel a little out of control.
