A lovely blob of chocolate right on the sleeve of my white shirt. Very cute! "Oh well" I say to myself. I'll take it off and just wear the blue shirt I was wearing over it. So I take off the blue shirt and what do I find?
Chocolate.... on the back of my blue shirt. How does that even happen?! The ironic part is that as we were leaving the store, Lola was commenting on how clean I stayed while eating my doughnut. Not so much I guess.
No biggie, I'll just wear my black shirt... that's in the washer. Or my hoodie... that's also dirty. So for now I'm wearing a tank top, which is one of my 7 approved underclothes. This wouldn't be so bad if I lived in Hawaii or Florida or Arizona. But I live in Washington... the cold part. The part that is still 50 degrees in June.
This makes me glad that I've extended my challenge to 2 weeks. Today I am forced to be uncomfortable, and really it's not that uncomfortable. I'm just kind of a wimp. I mean, I was able to come inside my warm house and put my clothes into a washing machine.
But when I walk down the driveway to get my mail and the cold breeze hits me, I get a reminder of the many people who have little or no clothing. I think about the people who slept outside last night. I think about the kids who might be embarrassed to be wearing the same clothes to school today that they wore yesterday. And when I have the tangible reminder of these things my heart hurts for them and I am moved to action.
