Tally (sorry it’s been a while)

It’s been a while.  But, today, the day that just won’t end, I decided to do a little “unofficial tally.” Here it is (slightly illegible). Ouch.

(More photos of some of the items on this list to come soon.)


Sorry, it’s been a while … I’m just really hungry.

Without a doubt the hardest part of this challenge, so far, has been the inability to eat at restaurants.  I love food.  Food is good.  Food makes me happy.  Good food makes me happier.  Good food made by other people at places other than my house makes me even happier.  Not having that makes me sad and hungry, nay, starving.  I can’t drive through areas heavily populated with restaurants that emit delicious smells for the fear of just pulling over and running in to eat off a stranger’s plate…ok that’s extreme, but you get it.  

But, regardless, I’ve been pretty good.  I have only purchased 2 bagels ($1.70 each) and some pretzels from The Lyndale Taphouse ($2.50 on happy hour special).  That means I owe the United Way $5.90.  (I can’t speak for my sister, but I know she owes them much more, which is probably why she hasn’t posted anything on here yet.)

As for the shopping portion and items I REALLY REALLY WANT BUT DIDN’T BUY….there aren’t any.  I haven’t had a desire to shop at all.  Even more strange, my birthday is in about 2 weeks and I actually get to shop then, but I have no idea what I want or need.  (Most likely because I don’t want or need anything.)   Oh, except, I should point out, my nice big fluffy winter coat has a malfunctioning zipper.  It’s no big deal except that if I want to actually put the coat on, I have to put it on the floor, step into it and pull it up – like a little kid putting on snow pants.

This is all you get, 2010!

For the next 365 days, all I [Tarcy] get to wear is what is in these two closets.  Let’s face it – there’s a lot to work with, so I shouldn’t even complain.  A good portion of my clothes aren’t even visible (jeans, dresses, pants, shoes…sort of hidden).  I’ll admit I have a bit of a shoe problem. 

I should also note I have a dresser next to the closet (above) that contains my key “stock up” item – plain black, white, blue and gray men’s Hanes t-shirts.  You’ll probably be seeing those a lot.

What you aren’t seeing in the closet below, besides what’s in the drawers (t-shirts, socks/tights/leggings, work-out attire), is a THIRD shoe organizer.  I said I had a shoe problem…this closet shows exactly that. Oh, and I haven’t had a reason to wear any of those suits in at least 6 months.  I’m really hoping that changes in 2010 (though I’m not sure why because I hate suits).

PS – If you pay me enough I’ll use that Easter basket as a purse.
