|Just some of my rainbow coalition shirts - more than I'll ever wear the rest of my life|
Well folks, I bit the bullet this morning and returned to some more downsizing. This time is was my suits (which I no longer need, not working at the bank anymore) and pants (that no longer fit me).
I'll be honest, it hurts to say goodbye to anything linked with my past. The suits? I'll never wear them again. Besides, the waist on the pants is 32 inches. I don't know what happened but I'm a 34 inch waist now. I weigh the same (well, sort of) but the flab has shifted. Gravity rules in the end you know. First the flesh starts shifting then eventually the bod ends up in the ground, one way or another.
|Old suits - oh the stories these suits could tell if they could talk - lots of history here folks!|
I saved one dark suit to be buried in (or burned, whatever whoever decides when I depart this planet). I did keep on suit jacket just in case I decide to be cool someday and wear something different than my denim jacket when I go out.
I also put out a lot of my pants that no longer fit me (the waist thing again). Plus, they all have pleats and pleats are out (this year anyway).
I was going to take the said clothes down to one of the thrift stores in Rehoboth but it's such a hassle carrying the box in and the thrift store are so choosy down here. I've had to take my donations back in the past. I think it's a space problem. Everything I donate is in excellent condition but space is limited in these thrift stores.
|Ron, Ron, Ron - why do you need so many shirts?|
I have given my clothes to the Purple Heart Pickup in the past and that's what I'm going to do with these clothes. I just call them and arrange a pickup. They will send their truck by at a prearranged date and pick up my box of donations from my porch. Very easy, I don't even have to answer the door.
Progress folks, one step at a time. Maybe a baby step but still, one step.
