Blanca has an all access pass…

Tomorrow is Blanca day, and I’m so excited.  This woman loves me, I love her, and she really does keep my life running smoothly.
We’ve had a bit of a challenge over organizing my closet and clothing, specifically around any sort of t-shirt or top.  She’s organized them repeatedly by color, which is awesome assuming you don’t have a multitude of moo-moos and event shirts as I do.
I spent some time categorizing all these shirts tonight and labeling them with notes (at her request) in Spanish.
I’ve organized my shirts as follows:
  • polo shirts i wear every day – these should be placed in an important place
  • everyday shirts – place these in an important place
  • shirts I got for free from events – i never wear these and I don’t need regular access to them
  • shirts I am too fat to wear right now – should be placed somewhere I see every day
  • shirts I wear when I’m bloated which is most days – these should be placed in a convenient place

Yep, that’s life.

The third most important thing I may ever write: Perspective is flawed by one thing – our lives

Author’s note:  This is flawed.  I haven’t closed each thread, I don’t even know that I know how to yet.  I know that this was something I’ve been writing for about two years now that exist in drafts in any number of OneNotes.  Tonight was the night it needed to post.

I had an argument with my sister today, based entirely on Read More
