Being stuck inside from the cold and rain means I have a lot of time on my hands…so, I clean. Cleaning is not my favorite thing to do, well, except for vacuuming. I don’t mind doing that…somehow, heh.
Anyhow, with the shopping I’ve been doing trying to update my wardrobe from 5+ year old running shirts and jeans and cargo pants stained with mud and oil, I figured it was about time I went through all my clothes to clean house and donate.
My life previously meant I was moving around every 6 months, and couldn’t buy many new clothes because I needed all the work gear I could keep. I lived out of a large suitcase that contained all my clothes for work and…very little going out wear. Being in my current residence now has given me the opportunity to purchase new and nicer clothes, although there is nothing wrong with my old clothes…they’re just out of date for me as I’m, I guess you could say, growing into myself.
So I piled everything up and even went through all my running shoes, to see that I sure had a lot to donate! I mean, there are 3 pairs of running shoes and 31 t-shirts in there! I even got rid of my favorite pair of jeans that I’ve been holding on to, hoping I might be able to fit back into them some day…but no more! I know I will never fit back into those jeans ever again…so out they went.
Oh, and along with my die hard converse I’ve had since…2004.
Oh my little converse…you have done your duty for the past eight years, breaking and fading out, but Whit said it was time for some new ones!
Aren’t they so pretty, and clean? Haha! They’re a bit stiff of course, and I’m getting used to there being that star on the side (not a fan, my old ones didn’t have that) but I like em’!
So, what did you do this weekend? Clean like me? I know many of us were stuck inside because of rain/snow/ice…
P.S. I finally went to the doctor’s today to get my hip checked out (I know, it took me for freaking ever) and I have a strained piriformis which is aggravating my sciatic nerve to the point where my leg basically gives out from under me if worked hard enough. It sucks hard core, because it’s not a typical running injury, so I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to get back to running. I do however, have a consult with an exercise physical therapist next week so hopefully in due time, I will be back to pounding the pavement! Fingers crossed…every single finger, toe, leg and arm…haha.
