Well, if it makes you feel better, I cried over pitching out cardboard tracers that I made for use in preschool. The pain is real at the time. I think "things" connect us to a memory of a person or event.After talking to my cousins I pitched all but 4 pair. I looked pretty silly sitting on the floor crying over old shoes lol.
A girl after my own heart. My house is not your storage shed.Since I need to go to ds's house to pick up the dog this afternoon, I will not go empty-handed. took all sweaters that are still in his closet, 2 halloween pj's that he has, 1 bag of baseball balls, 1 baseball bat and a box of hockey pucks
4 Mondays of picking up the dog (they have prenatal classes)... I will be dropping off stuff everytime
Lol!! I about spit out my coffee when I read this. So funny, thank you I needed that. Thank you everyone for your support.Or a heeling cry...
OMG I can just imagine. What an amazing photo that must be. Good job on the decluttering. I really need to do photos and it was on my to do list for Winter. Might have to add it to the to do list for Summer.( I only need one copy of aunt grace milking a cow in her wedding gown lol).
Myron's Mom - I'm spent a chunk of my summer doing just this. Cleaning out my parents house. Soooo hard! My mom had these old dresses, hats and such she saved from the 40s also. I was able to justify keeping some of them because we have a dress-up box which will go to future grandchildren. But the rest of it I had to let go. Killed me. Especially all the embroidery that had those stains from years gone by....I had tears too. But there were other items we kept and of course lots of photos... There are 4 sets of china in that house and the next generation doesn't want it. What to do?I spent yesterday afternoon going through all the clothes mom had saved, ..........My mom had saved a bunch of my shoes,( baby and toddler). I’m 62 you would think I would be able to pitch that stuff but I had a crisis, I think from going through all of moms stuff ( party dresses and gowns from the 40’s). After talking to my cousins I pitched all but 4 pair. I looked pretty silly sitting on the floor crying over old shoes lol.
