When we were getting ready to start packing in MO, I went ahead and packed all my own clothes. It was July and August and I kept out a lot of my summer clothes, and then packed the rest of the summer clothes that I wanted to keep out so I could put them in my car. I had most of them at the rental and then when winter rolled around, I mostly wore jeans and sweatshirts because it doesn’t get really cold here. Then when we moved from the rental in December, all the summer clothes got packed and I wasn’t real sure where they ended up. I’ve been wearing jeans and t-shirts.
After searching for days and days for my “decent” clothes, last night we went to our very small mall. I told Vince that if I could just find a pair of black dress pants, I could get through the coming events and hopefully I would find my clothes soon. I bought a pair of black pants but they have to be hemmed and I need them tonight!
About 9:00 last night, I was still running around searching everywhere looking for my clothes. That sounds kinda funny, huh? Vince said “Could they be in a wardrobe box out in the shop?” I explained that my clothes were not in wardrobe boxes because I had packed them myself in MO. Vince said “Didn’t we put some of your clothes in wardrobe boxes at the rental?” YES! I had totally forgotten about that. So, we went through several wardrobe boxes before finding my stuff. And, did we find clothes! All sizes — 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 . . I think it’s safe to say I’m never going to wear the size 6 things, the size 8 probably won’t get much use either. I went ahead and hung everything up but some of those things just may find their way to Goodwill.
What I did find that I don’t remember seeing in ages . .
The outfit we brought Chad home in! Oh, I miss my sweet boy! I need to give this to him so he can save it if he wants it.
