Grateful for DayQuil and NyQuil

Well, Kavi and I definitely have head colds now (we tested, not COVID), so that explains the sudden exhaustion of Friday, I suspect. We’re all sinus-y and sniffling and grateful for DayQuil and NyQuil. It’s been quite a while since I had one of these colds, but absence has not made the heart grow fonder. Ah well.

I’m having a very hard time making myself do anything computer-related right now, but I’m going to have to do some soon. Maybe taking myself to the shed will help. Mostly, I’ve been doing the seasonal shift — the house is done, with all the summer ocean sailed away and autumn animals come out to play.

While putting away summer clothes and taking out autumn, I’ve been sorting, which I haven’t done properly in a few years, trying everything on section by section (tops, pants, dresses, etc.) to see what fits and is in good condition, and what I still love.

The rest go into three categories:

• still love it but doesn’t fit, so store for now, in case I change size (I usually fluctuate between 2-3 sizes)

• love it, but could be better in ways I can envision and possibly manage to do — put in basement alterations rack for consideration

• don’t love it anymore — consign / give away

There was a brief period when Kavi could wear some of them, but now her style is so different from mine, I don’t even try to talk her into it. Sometimes she’ll take a sweatshirt or some such to sleep in, but that’s about it. 🙂

It’s nice to have more room in the closet again, and while it’s often a bit of a pang giving away a piece of clothing I once enjoyed, once it’s out of the house, I know I’ll never think about it again. Hopefully it’ll make someone else happy.
