"Don't know where to start about what's wrong with corduroy.." said Miranda of "Sex in the City" to her bartender boyfriend. They were talking about how to dress appropriately to a dinner function organized by Miranda's legal firm.
Hey...if I was the boyfriend, I would have replied her that I like corduroy. Not kidding, I have a few cords hanging there in my closet; from jeans to skirts and even a jacket which I could not fit into anymore, want to give it away, but....so sayang nyer.
At every attempt I make clearing my closet, I'll go through this same "yes, you go", "no, you stay" or "maybe yes, maybe no" kind of decision making. It's so difficult to make that call. And as a result of that, my closets are filled to the brim. My build-ins are probably screaming at my wrong doing, how I abuse them, hanging more than I should on the already giving away hanging rod. On top of that, everyone in the house is complaining that he/she has little space left to get clothes organized. And it's all due to my blatant space invasion act. That's what they claim lah....and me, well, I simply can't see what they are fussing about (still in denial as always...)
Anyway, to proof their claims wrong, I made good progress over the weekend. Spent the entire Sunday clearing old stuffs, packed them in boxes and all ready to be taken back to MIL's place. I leave it up to her to have them distributed to anyone she thinks deserves our hand me downs. Most of the clothes are still in good shape and some hardly worn. I remember one corduroy overall which I got for Nissa when she was three years old. It is navy blue and has small red floral prints all around she skirt, one very sweet piece. The last time I deliberated whether to give it away, took it out and put it in back again. This time, my mind is set; it shall go to a new wearer.
As I accumulated the "yes, you go" and "no, you stay" pile yesterday, that horrible guilt gush came disturbing; all hands and toes point my way as if telling me "my oh my...you sure know how to empty your purse!!!" Unfortunately, I still have no good answer to that. They say old habits die hard, do they not? Until I get that department sorted out, guess I'll continue making more space for others in the house, well that's the least I could do lah kan....
