...I've had the urge to go through, clean out, organize lately. Yesterday, I went through 5 boxes of "remnants from the past" and had an interesting walk down memory lane. For instance, I found the brochure of the house we currently own and noticed for the first time, that the grass on the pamphlet is unnaturally green and fuzzy, lots of other things were embellished too, I'm sure, but the grass was totally photoshopped in!!! We were duped! Then, I came across a bunch of old Christmas cards and had the thought to chuck them, but reading through them brought much joy as I perused the pictures and brief updates from years' past, so I tossed them back in a box to return to the attic. In a random stack of old mortgage docs from 3 purchases ago, I found a picture of me and "Chip" at a high school dance. I don't recall much at all about the dance or anything else surrounding it except for shopping with Chip beforehand to coordinate our kicka$$ outfits, but seeing the picture brought a smile to my face--especially the pink theme and thermals with boxers!!! So "totally rad" 80s. I don't remember much about Chip either. Where is he now? Does he still sport pink sweats and socks? I hope not. And what the heck was "TOLO?" It was written on the back along with the date "2-12-88." And the funniest thing was I think my hair was very similar to #14!!! (<-----referring to yearbookyourself.com)
Back IN the CLOSET goes some of the meaningful knickknacks, but the rest will be carted off by NRSD Thursday. Good bye stuff that's clogging my attic! Feels so good to say goodbye.
