NaBloPoMo ~ Home XX

Shoes. Omigawd shoes!

'Twas my task to go through - once again - and move my shoes. I have several pairs o'shoes on the racks by my front door; the rest are in boxes above the closet. Not very user-friendly if ya ask me. I will admit: if the shoes I want to wear aren't on the racks, I'll pick a pair that is. I don't have time to pull out the step-ladder and go through each box looking for the shoes I want to wear. I will also admit: my wardrobe isn't planned until it's on me. I'll think about what I'd like to wear the next day; but that usually goes kaput when my idea of what it looks like meets the reality of what it looks like.

Anyway, back to shoes. I pulled the boxes out, set 'em up in the living area; pulled all of the shoes off the racks by the door, set 'em up in the living area as well. Then, I tried 'em on. Yep - each and every pair! Carefully considering each pair, the decision was which pile the pair would end up in: Keep, Keep - winter shoe storage, or Give to @moneke. Lucky @moneke ~ four pairs (3 never worn!) are set aside for her!

This wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong - it was still tough! I got caught in a moment, choked then called my Mom. She talked me off the ledge. I proceeded. Experienced a few more moments...and made my way through with direct messages from @moneke.

Project:Shoes was a success ~ winter shoes are in a storage bin; summer shoes are in/on the racks by the door or in boxes above the closet!

Yay me!

I just started organizing my closet tonight. I started with shoes. It's a nightmare-ish task.
