Welcome, Friday. I have been toying with a new challenge. Several bloggers have started a group to address this issue. They are really committed, signing up, throwing down their personal gauntlet. On a small scale I have made my own decision.
|This is a hot topic with me!|
|Husband thinks my project is a crock!|
Where is this going you ask? Inspired by the new Mood Network contributors (some I already know, others not) I know I can do better....if I can carve out the time. Again, back to the time issue. This has been kicking around for a while but because I hate the fact that I have trouble with these commitments, I have been procrastinating. This is a habit I have been honing for a couple years, this procrastination thing. Actually it is relatively new to me, never participated before, but it has been a well used tool in my arsenal of excuses. No more Lady Jane (remember the Lady Jane story? here ) we need to get this act together. Currently there are major holes in the wardrobe that need addressed. Nothing drastic, but I need to concentrate.

Fitting issues aside, I have made a decision. I will try as hard as possible to not purchase clothing. This will exclude undergarments, I am not that brave. My start date is effective today, October 12. I will track my personal angst and frustrations on a separate page on this blog. It is titled The Mount Everest Project. It is sort of a thinking out loud type of project. It is accessible on the blog, under the "Pages" section if you care to look. Wish me luck. I did do this once with quilting fabrics, it was difficult, but I did it. (The day after the year was up, I went to a quilt shop and just picked up two little pieces to finish a project, that's all, didn't go wild!)
PS: I hate doing this kind of stuff because I always capitulate. Wish me luck.
