Thank GOD that it's October. September set a record for me as the WORST month in the history of my life, methinks. Wake Me Up, When September Ends - not just a song by Green Day. Here's hoping it gets better.
So we are back to Monday. What can we do today to improve our spirits, improve our days, improve our lives?
We can improve our view from behind and down under.
I'm talking socks and unders, guys.
Your Mission for today is to clean through your sock drawer. Get rid of the funky holiday socks - you know, those corny ones you have with the snowmen on them? If you need to keep them, I've gotta know why. Toss the unmatched socks. I have a full basket of them, lying in the bottom of the closet, hopefully awaiting their match. If it hasn't happened by now, it won't. Toss them all. Toss the trouser socks that have loose elastic at the top and bag around your ankles - the ones you have to pull up fifty times a day. Throw out the socks with holes - seriously, if you were GOING to mend them, you already WOULD have done so. The stained, the ugly, the smelly and vile - out the door.
Now move onto the underwear drawer. The ones with holes - gotta go. Stained, ripped, shot elastic - into the can with all of them. (Ladies, if you want, you can keep a few pair for "that" time of the month. Not all of your panties should look like that, though.) Men, check the undershirts. Do you need some that have a neckline that retains it's shape? Are your shorts reminiscent of Archie Bunker?
Ten minutes, top. Then you can go buy some nice, new, and more importantly, ATTRACTIVE stuff. The fundamentals that will improve your bottom line can only help your top line.
Check out Scrutiny By The Masses for some great new reviews. I also need to amend my Kids Love Spanish review - I'm afraid that I didn't love it, and reviewed it as such. I left the set in the van, intending to give it to a friend. My little girls have asked to watch each of the dvds on the van player every single day for a week, and it is so cute to drive down the road listening to them repeat the words back to the screen. A little eerie, since they are wearing headphones and I can't hear what they are hearing. Apparently, my kids DO love Spanish.
