Purge, People, Purge

I'm not sure what's possessed me. It could be that I can finally do some things now that my hand is free as a bird. It might be that it's finally stopped snowing and I'm feeling the spring cleaning urge. It might be that I'm feeling crowded out my messy closets. It might be that some of my clothes still have shoulder pads in them that would rival Livda Evans and I might be in serious need of a Clinton and Stacy (What Not To Wear) intervention.












It might be that I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what to wear to Kay's graduation banquet which is in less than two weeks and a weeee bit of panic is starting to set in.
Or it might be that phone call last night. What is it about the words: "Hello, this is the Diabetes Association. We'll have a truck in your area on the 15th. Are there any clothes or small household items that you'd like to donate?" that turns a sane mother of three into a whirling dervish of closet and cupboard purging? The thought that I myself don't have to load the stuff into a car and deliver it anywhere, that I can just park in on my front stoop with a big "D" on it on a certain date and someone will cart it away that puts all else onto a back burner until I've filled enough boxes and bags to satisfy my "I've accomplished something" sensibilities.
The only problem with all this purging sadly, is that I'm left with a pretty empty closet. Hmmm, maybe I'll have to get my friend, Linda, to put in a good word for me with her BFF Clinton who has actually emailed her. Maybe I can ride on her coattails to fashion freedom. But with my luck coattails are out of style and she's thrown hers out long ago.

Gosh girl you had me at Purge!! I love that they come right to your door to pick up.

Okay so I'll say a prayer for you and your graduation dress dilemma because we can't have you going to no graduation naked!

I hope you get something to wear to the graduation! Read the post you linked to, pretty funny! And I love to see that show when I can.

Oh, I hope you find something to wear. I feel your pain! Now when I shop I think, "What would Clinton and Stacy say?" Of course, I don't always follow their imaginary advice, but...

I LOVE it when the Leukemia Society calls. They don't even get to finish the question. When they say, "We will have a truck in your area on Thurs-" I jump in with "YES! I was hoping you'd call!!"

It's the Amvets who come to our neighborhoods. Otherwise, it's off to Goodwill or a church. I just wish you had your dress. You don't need any stress at this time. I hope you post pics on the big day.
