Ugh… I hate moving. Like seriously. I always swore we would hire a mover if we moved out of our current house but since we’re building we don’t have anywhere to go immediately after we close the sale so it seemed like a waste of money to hire someone to pack our stuff and take it around the corner to storage. We’re doing it ourselves again, and it is the most tedious, annoying process.
On the other hand, it’s kind of cool to go through all of our stuff and find things that I thought I’d lost over the years. lol. We really have too much stuff and need to get rid of a bunch of it. I did go through my old journals and notebooks again as I was boxing them up looking for more moments to share here. I didn’t find anything really substantial, but I did find some really neat stuff.
That’s just a handful of the really cool things I found. I also found a whole bunch of love letters I wrote but was too chicken to give to Hubs when we first started dating, a few of the comic strips I illustrated in 4th grade, my collection of poetry, random other short stories I’d written for various school projects, just a whole bunch of stuff. It feels like yesterday since I wrote a lot of this stuff, but we’re talking about some things that I wrote twenty years ago. TWENTY YEARS AGO. Oh good Lord, it’s been a really long time. A lot of the earlier stuff is scribbled in sloppy illegible cursive taking me quite a while to decipher. I understand the importance of teaching children cursive, but I never did take to it. My printing has always been nicer and easier to read. lol. It was my first rebellion, refusing to write in cursive.
I also found my old CD binder, full of music I’d pretty much forgotten about. A lot of them were in terrible shape so most of my reminiscing was done via Spotify. What I couldn’t find on there, I think it lost forever. Most being one off cd’s of no name bands to begin with. Even eBay didn’t have anything when I went looking for one particular group, but winning a random raffle at a skating rink in 1994 and receiving a free cd from a local group as my prize… I mean really. They never made it big, but I wish I had been able to buy another copy before it went out of print, because it became one of my favorite albums after I got a little older. lol.
Anyway… this was a nice little jaunt down memory lane, but I really need to get back to packing. I have to take B2 in for his monthly blood work this afternoon, and finish getting as much of our stuff packed and into storage as I can while I have a baby sitter. It’s going to be a very busy day today. I need to get up and get going.
