Birth of a project

I was getting dressed for a friend's birthday party and I didn't know what I was going to put on my body. I looked in my closet and it seemed empty, unpromising. I've had these moments before; everything was old, ill-fitting, or blah. I thought to myself, "Ugh! I have NOTHING to wear!" Then I began rifling through my closet and saw a forgotten shirt I loved and many more, and I realized I was crazy. I had plenty to wear, and plenty to choose from. My closet was FULL of treasures! At that moment I decided I would take a year to explore my closet and to add NOTHING new to my wardrobe.

I would create a NEW outfit for each day in order to maximize my wardrobe and shake up my style.

Basically, I would try to "snap out" of my fashion rut, and appreciate what I have.

It was my New Years' project:
One Closet, One Year.

I felt a little guilty about my post yesterday, but all is fair in love and blogging. Last night we walked to the library and after an "incident" I sent Leo to his room until his father was home. I was done. He fell asleep 20 minutes later. He slept from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. I was fairly certain he would wake up to eat dinner, but he slept right through. This prompted me to hypothesize that Leo's main problem may be that he's sleep deprived. I've thought this before, and this was a big reminder.
