Getting There

It’s been awhile since I have written. I have been busy clearing out my parents closets. My mom still had some of Dad’s clothing, plus all of her clothing, jewelry etc. I clean out the garage….haven’t touched the shed! Yikes! My mom had 7 totes of stuff. The funny thing is the totes weren’t full. I cleaned out the laundry room and for the most part the kitchen. I am sorting dishes right now. I cleared out my mom’s closet, under her bed and all of the dressers. I finally washed her bedding and the dirty laundry she had from when she went into the hospital last August. That was a hard task. It made everything final… if that makes sense. I have the spare room and the family room still to go and clear out. I am not counting on all of the items my siblings want that I have to put aside and of course they live in another state so no help from them on cleaning and go thru stuff.
As I am clearing things out I have tried to go thru my stuff. I have tried to make my wardrobe minimalist (Insert minion laughing). Biggest problem is that I live in Knoxville, TN and the summers are unbearable. When you wake up at 6:00 AM and it’s 76 degrees out! So I have figured out that I have to have a spring/summer wardrobe and an autumn/winter wardrobe.
So I have narrowed it down to this: (Insert minion laughing again)

Spring/Summer
7 Tank tops
14 Greek tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
7 Skirts
7 Capris
3 Trousers
7 Dresses

Autumn/Winter
7 Tank tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
7 Skirts
7 Capris
7 Trousers
7 Dresses
7 Pullover sweaters

All Seasons
7 Tank tops
7 Sheath tops
7 Tops
14 Tee shirts
14 Skirts
7 Jeans
7 Dresses
14 Jackets
14 Cardigans

Which is a total of 234 pieces of clothing. I am going to try to narrow it down. This should be fun! LOL
