is this creepy?

Ok ya'll, tell me if this is creepy or am I just being weird
...

I've been having a problem lately - no clothes that fit!
What a wonderful problem to have, HOWEVER, it is still
problem when I'm desperately searching through the closet
for something that I can wear to work. I've taken all of
last years fat spring/summer stuff to the consignment store,
so the closet is looking rather sparse.

My mom died 3 years ago, and I've still got a bin full of
her clothes that I haven't sorted through and done anything
with. On a hunch, I went through the bin, and found several
things that I can wear! My mother was a short woman, so I
can't wear the pants, but for some reason she tended to buy
large size shirts. It's the shirts that are fitting. It is
actually quite exciting, because I always thought of my
mother as a petite woman.

So, is it creepy to wear my dead mother's clothes? There
isn't any article that I've found that particularly reminds
me of her (a bunch of the stuff still has the tags on it -
she liked to buy things but then never wear them). Plus, I'm
in desperate need of the clothing. I don't want to buy a
whole lot of new clothes right now, since I hope to be down
one more size before I'm done with all of this.

<sigh> .... why can't I just let things be easy?

Don't let it creep you out. Look at it as a gift from
beyond. Your mother would be happy that you found a use for
her clothes.

When I could no longer wear my wedding ring my mother gave
me dad's to wear. I now have a little piece of him with my
at all times. I just don't know what I am going to do when
my own rings start to fit again.

Tracy,

Think of the new clothes that she purchased as a present she
left for you because she knew you would get to this stage.

If you're not freaking about the situation, then who cares.
If you find it creepy...well...that's its own answer.

Not at all creepy or weird. Wear and enjoy and thank your
mom for the contributions to your closet. Wear them as a
memorial to her love for you and yours for her.

One of the motivating factors for me to begin my weight loss
effort was the desire to wear some of my dad's clothes that
my mom gave me after his death. The first time I was able to
comfortably wear one of his favorite sweatshirts (and it
still smelled like him too), I cried tears of joy and
gratitude and sadness. Now most of his things are too big!!!
But even as I'm typing this I'm wearing a pair of his
sweatpants...

NO it's not creepy. Just thank Mom and move ahead. See,
she's still keeping an eye on you.

And Laura - I wear my Dad's wedding ring. Depending on how
swollen my fingers are determines which finger I wear it on.
Right now I'm wearing it with my wedding rings. When I lose
enough weight so I can wear Mom' s sweetheart ring again,
I'll switch hands, and wear their rings together. They wore
their rings over 50 years, and it comforts me to wear them,
now they're gone. Sharon

Well, the only way I see it as creepy, if Tracy is a
GUY!!! (gd&r)

You'd probably honor her by wearing the stuff if it fits and
she might be happy you are more slender, too.

I have some of my dad's stuff and he passed away last Sept.
A fleece jacket he really liked and was in good shape and
fit my more slender self!

Think of them as a gift from her to you. I wear my husband's
mother's engagement ring - it's now mine. She died a long
time ago and I never met her, but my husband, his father,
and my adoreable (step)MIL all wanted me to have it, so I
wear it with pride.

Its not the least bit creepy. It is in fact a tribute to
your mother that you are wearing things she choose. and if
she is like my mother she would appreciate that you are not
wasting money by purchasing things that you do not need by
wearing what she left you. You are also recycling and that
is another tribute to her. Lee

I don't see any problem with this. Go for it! I am in the
same boat size-wise...just getting back on weight watchers
(the fat clothes were coming dangerously close to fitting me
again!), and I need something to wear to work. Wish I had a
hidden stash of size 16s around!

Wear it on a chain or have it crafted into a special ring
just for you in a design your mom picks out or something.

wedding ring when she passes. I'd like to have the pair.
