How fitting that my life should suddenly be consumed by two things: pounds and inches. Let's do a little comparison, shall we?.
50 lbs of peanut butter is A LOT of stinkin' peanut butter.
Only 50 lbs of clothes is not very much.
50 lbs of marshmallows is a smores lover's dream.
Only 50 lbs of books is a home school mom's nightmare.
50 lbs of Entenmann's chocolate donuts is a perfect midnight snack.
Only 50 lbs of shoes could be cause for a mental breakdown.
But I'm taking it all in stride. I purchased two new sets of sheets for the boys bedrooms to be shipped down in the housewares bin. Did you know that by removing the cardboard fillers and product labels you can save a whopping 1.2 lbs?! Can you see me swelling with pride? Every little bit counts. Let no space be wasted!
As long as they don't make me stand on the scale we should be okay. Otherwise, we'll have to pay the $25 surcharge fee several times over.
(side not to the Duncan's: The IMB is mean. Fight the system! We believe in you.)
