our brownie troop has teamed up
with the elementary school
to collect shoes for
share your soles.
m has a bag of 7 pairs of shoes,
g has a bag of 4 pairs of shoes,
and k has a bag of 10 pairs of shoes,
this weekend we focused on the girls' room.
and since i missed sunday confession,
here's one for ya* -
m is much better at getting rid of things
than i am.
we had conversations like this...
"i don't need these shoes anymore."
"are you sure? maybe for church or something?"
"i never use these hair bands."
"but you might someday, right?"
"i'm done with these art projects."
"uh, really? but you worked so hard on them."
and so on.
i didn't know whether to be proud or horrified.
she easily dumped over 50 items...
tickets, old lip gloss, candy, broken earrings,
stretched out hair bands, socks, and
the list goes on and on.
i'll be conservative and stick with 50.
seriously, 10, wtf?
and i totally cried over the blues clues backpack.
and i totally cried over the dora purse.
2 cloth shopping bags
and from k's dresser...
13 pairs of tights
12 pairs of pants
most of these are hand-me-downs
that will go live with e in wv.
total for this week = 143
grand total = 143+50 = 193
and we're on our way.
next up - g's room.
lots more k clothes in there.
*i ate long john silvers fish on friday, texas roadhouse country fried steak on saturday, and leftovers on sunday. oh, and i found out that the chicken chipotle sandwich i ate at panera last week is on the worst sandwiches in america list. 56. grams. of. fat.
i may need a nutrition intervention.
