Moral of the story, it was Friday, it's raining and we are bored. I (still pondering why) asked mama if she wanted to clean out her closet. This didn't come out of the blue, mama had told me she wanted to do it before she left for the winter. She is wanting to get rid of some Christmas stuff since we haven't been home for the holidays in years. We also have a lot childhood toys at her house and she wanted us to go through them.
It took six hours, we had three rooms filled with stuff. Just as we learned from watching many episodes of "Clean House", (hosted by non other then one of my faves Niecey Nash!) we had a keep room, a sorting room, and a get rid of room.
So the cleaning part wasn't as fun as the sorting part. We found letters and cards we had written and received. We laugh so hard about a post-it Sis wrote, telling mama that she had left to go corn detassling and would clean her room when she got home. If she was "still alive". Or when I listed my three favorite places in the world as Maui, Target, and Caselton Mall?!
I thought I would share with you (and hopefully bring back some memories) of what we found!
Of course, I didn't have my camera with me, so I had to use my phone which means smaller, not so great pictures. Sorry, but s*&t happens!
So I ask all you! Do you remember these?
The magical musical thing! Not a guitar, not a piano, not even a keyitar. Just a thing! We didn't' have batteries so we are not sure if it works but it was a keeper! Next time we go through our stuff, I'm going to make sure to have a 9 volt battery on hand!
If you know something better then "The Muppet Show!" and "Talk-To-Me" please let me know! We did find D batteries and the DOES work! It was so fun!
We still have all our Pretty Ponies. They still have their hair braided and the same "outfits" on as the last time had we played with them. We still have the big stable and the stable carrying cases.
Annie was my FAVORITE! I WAS Annie. Along with these figures, I still have Annie tape (yep tape as in scotch) bookmarks (which I now have one in the book I'm currently reading) and many other fun things!
We also have Carebears, Carebear Cousins, Hello Kitty, Twin Stars, and much much more!
Dadster and sis got bored with us and our toys shortly after we started. As they sat on the couch, watched the DVR and played on their cell phones, mama and I were lost in the past. We played dolls and ponies.
We read letters that we wrote, we teared up missing people of our past and can't wait to share the funny stuff with people in our present. Due to being pack rats aka sentimental saps, we still have
