Remembering When ....

On my morning visit to Pat's site, she reminded me of all the STUFF we have to get rid of since the move. What is it with the human race that makes us pack rats?? I'm sure we're not the only family that has a bazillion boxes of stuff accumulated in the attic rafters. Needless items that at one time or another had some significance to our beings ... or presumed significance. I guess without all that stuff shows like Cash In The Attic and Antique Roadshow would not be quite what they are. Mindless items that collect dust ... no matter what value they have moneywise or sentimental. Maybe all this stuff is just a weird way of paying back our kids when they have to sort through it all after we pass through the pearly gates, ya think?

Just think of it as liberation...;) just think how freeing it'll be to get rid of all that junk....where's the baby pics??

We are a nation of abundance....we are blessed beyond measure. I pity my kids when that day comes to clean out our stuff..Hal has AT LEAST two of every tool because he can never find where he puts them, and I have fabric up the wazoo ~ but mine is very organized if that counts for anything! Have fun kids!

I posted the Cream Puff Cake recipe..and about 'stuff'. We carry it out all the time for Good Will and bring more home. Don't you just love the look of people's faces when the Antique Roadshow experts tell them they have a treasure...I love how thier faces light up with joy!

*wants to come rummage through Pat's fabric stash and mess up her organization system*

Northeast Iowa mom - my fabric is your fabric - come on and rummage! As for an organizational system...I don't know that its so much a system as it is a reallly high stack of rubbermaid boxes and bolts of fabric in a trash container!
