Thanks, day five

Does anyone else do what I seem to do ALL THE TIME? I buy the clothes that I already have. What is up with that? I have at least three red shirts of varying shades of redness. Love them. Which is a relatively new thing since I started wearing pink in pregnancy only because that was what was available and on sale. I have since gone a little nuts with the red because like one person, once, told me I look nice in pink. Which she probably said because she couldn't think of anything nice to say about my enormous exploding pregnant massiveness, because I sure as h#ll wasn't glowing. But now? I have enough red shirts. But still am a year behind on fall clothes because of last year's aforementioned massiveness. So I go to buy a new shirt. And my mind just goes into some weird time warp, where I blank out on that I have plenty of red shirts, and I can only remember "me like red shirtz" or some such robotic thought. I could totally use a black shirt, a nice blue one or green one. Even stripes, heaven forbid. But no...no...I come home with a red shirt.

It's like a hangover, I wake up from the stupor and see what I have just done and totally regret it and pine for a green shirt. What was I thinking? But shopping being the opposite of retail-therapy that it is (it's more like a cause for latte therapy) I know I won't return it. Me and my closet full of red shirts.

And thanks! Today I am thankful for all of ALL YALL in blogland (where is that, anyway?) who read my blog. It's surprising how much it matters to me, in such a short time. Thank you!

I've heard this forgetting of what is one's closet, actually the forgetting of everything is called Momnesia...I'm not sure if this the medical term or not.

Sounds about right. The red shirt is your mommy uniform. We all have them, you are just brave enough to admit it. :) Least you have a little color. Mine seems to be white shirts. I am sooo boring...

I have a similar problem, but it's more with the type of clothing: "Oh, look, great! A long-sleeved t-shirt! I don't have this color!" Because nothing says variety like the same shirt in eight different colors.

Sounds like here. Although the offending colour lately, unfortunately, is brown. Seems to be the only thing I can find in the stores!!

I wish I could find more colours in things that looked nice!!
