Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
I received a phone call from a WW friend a few days ago. She said she had some clothes that she no longer could wear and asked me if I would like them. I said sure! We were about the same size going down the scale prior to chemo. After chemo, I regained quite a bit of weight so she is now about 2 sizes smaller than me. I went to her house expecting just a few things. She had 7...yes SEVEN...very large garbage bags full of stuff for me to go through. I left with 4 bags of some great clothes...several hundred dollars worth, I'm sure. She was so pleased to be getting rid of them and I am so pleased to be on the receiving end. :) I vow to not even take them out of the car until I have my closet cleaned out and emptied of all clothes that do not currently fit (but will in the future). I'm going to bag those up and get them out of site for now.
As I went through her bags, she and her husband sat and chatted up a storm and then when we were all done with the clothing, we had a nice lunch together.
I came home, cut up a bunch of veggies and added them to a roast and cut up some potatoes too. Laundry is also going. The house smells wonderful and I've enjoyed this day immensely.
