We leave the house around 7:30 every morning to get Parker to school on time. It has really put as thorn in my workout regimen. I don't like to workout after I'm showered and ready for the day, but I don't like to take Parker to school un-showered.
But after three days of not exercising, I decided I really can't continue on like this just for vanity sake. (Though, let's face it...I work out for vanity's sake. It's as much bigger motivator than good health.) I've already made first impressions and I am now going to be that mom that drops her kids off un-showered in work-out clothes.
SO not the point of my post.
I sported a baseball cap this morning. Anyone who has experienced my morning hair can appreciate why. As I was exercising, I started thinking about that cap. I've had it AT LEAST fifteen years. AT LEAST! It's a Mossimo hat from around junior high age...back when Mossimo was a hot brand found at PacSun rather than Target. I inherited it from one of my brothers who had it a year or two before that but never wore it. The truth is, I don't wear it all that often. I wear hats so rarely it seems silly to buy a new one. But I haven't got rid of it for occasions such as today that it became a necessity. It may be about time to invest in a new hat. I intend to continue shielding innocent bystanders from witnessing my bed-head.
camp (yeah...I still have my nasty blue--but super comfy--girls camp sweatshirt) or favorite bands or working as an EFY Counselor. I'm not really sure that it's the memory that keeps them from a garbage bin grave. It's probably my frugality. Why buy a new shirt to sleep in when this one is worn in and perfectly comfortable?
I also have a white half-slip that I've had probably since I was old enough to start wearing slips. It's just kind of grown with me. I think slips are magic like that.
...and now that this confession has become a little embarrassing, what article of clothing have you been hanging onto for ten-plus years? I can't be the only one.
