Parting is such sweet sorrow

As I have told you I've been trying to reorganize my house, so the first step is to get rid of things we no longer need. Today I decided to start going through my clothes and getting rid of things I no longer wear or no longer fit me.  I've been putting this off for along time.  I have lots of clothes and probably only wear a handful of what I have.  I'll admit I have a hard time getting rid of things (my husband will tell you this he likes to throw out everything) I always think one day I'll wear it or I hope I will fit in to it again one day.  Today I began this dreaded event knowing I really had to actually get rid of things. I have clothes in many sizes my skinny clothes before I had kids, then post baby clothes, clothes after I lost some weight, post 2nd baby clothes, etc... I'm sure most moms can relate.  As I was doing this I didn't realize how emotional it would be to get rid of clothes.  I finally made the decision to get rid of all my before I had kids clothes aka skinny clothes because realistically I have never worn any of them since I had Liam.  Part of me kept thinking one day I'll fit in these again, but  it's been about 4 years since I've worn them, so it was time for them to go.  Don't get me wrong I plan and hope to lose more weight, but my body is different now and certain things just won't look good on me anymore.  Now they're all in a bag on they're way out the door.  Looking through them made me remember my pre-mom days though and a little sad that those days are gone. I love my life now and being a mom, but when you're younger you never really appreciate your carefree days like you should.  Now time alone, dates with my husband, and free time is rare and something much appreciated.  So, good bye skinny clothes, hopefully we will meet again :)
