As I mentioned in my last post, I spent quite some time cleaning out “memory bins” (that were still housed in NY) this week. LARGE bins, to be exact. I, thank goodness, have come to my senses (while simultaneously appeasing my husband) in the “I just can’t get rid of it…yet” department. I have realized that the “yet” portion of the show makes more work for me later and often times “yet” never really materializes. This causes clutter, wreaks havoc, and makes me feel unorganized. SO. OVER. IT. So in case you haven’t figured it out yet, the small pile was the keeper pile…
Now for the hilarity!
I have lots to share. In order to make you really want it, I’m going to spread it out over a few “Flashback Fridays.” Enjoy!
#1 – This had to be from middle school (when making 4-way folded cards were so in)…
Nice touch with the beer mug. Nice Touch.
#2 – My bossy request order to “laundry doers” to wash my jeans the right way. I’m pretty sure I was ordered requested to begin doing my own laundry soon thereafter…
Wow – very serious about those L.E.I. bellbottoms!
#3 – A hot concert I attended. Not my first, though. That was MC Hammer (ohhh yeah – “you can’t touch this!”).
Look how cheap – $30!
#4 – I’ve always been obsessed with making spelling count…
Mrs. Melanson – the most all-business 5th grade teacher at Lisha Kill Middle School!
I’m gonna stop there to save some embarrassing must-sees for next week’s “Flashback Friday.” Don’t miss it!
Do you have trouble getting rid of junk items from your past? Anyone else want to keep every single greeting card they’ve ever been given (it’s a sickness)? What’s the weirdest thing you still have from growing up? C’mon – spill it! We can be embarrassed together!!!
p.s. Scott and I checked out our brand new (like today-new) Trader Joe’s this afternoon and loved it! Didn’t take any pics though…I was too overwhelmed with excitement. We got some 2 3 Buck Chuck (perfect for Chucktown!) and some other randomness. Excited to get back there next week!
p.s.s. Anyone else in shock that July is almost over?! Ahhhh!
