Well we finally started packing and I have to say we have to much you know what in our house. I have no idea how we accumulated all this you know what in one little house.
As we are going through all this your know what I have been having some memory flashbacks. The other night I was wearing a cap from college graduation as we packed. Charlie thinks I might possibly be losing it, but I was trying to put humor in our packing.
I also found picture albums that I have not seen in awhile. A lot of Henry's old baby stuff, which then put me into shock because in four months I will be mom to a two year old. There was a trunk full of goodies from college, old pictures, Kappa letter shirts and other you know what that I had collected in college.
Then I found the mother load of memories, a black binder that was filled with memories from my childhood. I found my 13th Birthday party invitation, a Halloween party invite that my friend Erin and I had in 7th grade, articles I had written for the school paper, pictures from shore trips, some doodles on a back of paper that had my high school classes on it, the schedule for colorguard try outs and finally something that made me smile ear to ear - The Littlest Pumpkin script.
About two hours before I found this I was standing in the kitchen discussing Halloween with Charlie and how we used to do parades at school and that in 2nd grade we even put a skit on for our parents. I about teared up when I found this piece of paper. I looked at it and noticed I circled my lines, I then proceeded to recite them to Charlie. He wouldn't play the part of the boy so I read his part too ;) I can still remember standing in front of the classroom and doing this skit and I got this warm fuzzy feeling inside.
At that moment I realized even though we have all this you know what in our house some things are important to keep and I'm glad I kept a lot of that you know what.
