The Twelve Days of Christmas



I found a pair of jeans, folded nicely, in the back of my car yesterday. My sister hemmed a few pairs for my mom a few days before, and I was sure these were accidentally left behind. Turns out: no. So I sat around trying to come up with a reason, any reason there might be a pair of jeans in my car. They were not new jeans, but still nice, and in a size that was fine for me to wear. So, naturally, I put them on. I wore them two days in a row. (Don't tell me you don't do that). I'm going to be honest though, I'm still pretty baffled. It's not like you accidentally lose your jeans--like you might a glove or--I'll even give you--a shoe. Jeans don't just happen to slip off and fall under car seats or couches.

I got to thinking: Someone thinks I look bad in my jeans and they're anonymously donating a pair in hopes that I'll make a switch! Next thing you know I'll be on one ofTyra Banks' My Friend Needs a Makeover episodes!

My fears began to subside a little though, when this morning, before I got in the car to take Hazey to school, I saw a pair of little boys' shoes, just about Parley's size, resting on the side of the driveway (maybe my car was locked?).

Then it became clear. How could I have missed it before?

All signs point to the 12 days of used clothes Christmas! I cannot wait to see what Jed gets tomorrow (pant size 34 x 30) I'll make sure to leave the car open!

Funny you should mention shoes because I lost a tennis shoe. Just one. For real. One is downstairs, the other is gone. If that shows up on your driveway, let me know.

Jayne you're so great! Thanks for making me laugh today...on my birthday...at 5:00 am..when I should be asleep. :)The 12 days of Used Clothes huh? That is so sweet of someone to do that for you. Ha! The jeans do look really cute on you. I can't wait to see what Jed gets either!

Oooohhh... I like the idea of the 12 days of used clothes Christmas. Do you think the used clothes elves make their way down to Arkansas?

Maybe Jed would like cut-offs, a la the Never Nude.

I would like a 12 days of Christmas yard-raking (or snow shoveling, depending on the weather)...or dog walker? Hmmm, what other menial tasks don't I like that I could pawn off on some unsuspectingly helpful neighbor?
