I might be giving up going upstairs to my kids’ bedrooms or to the closets there forever. Every time I do, I find more junk. Just when I have removed some junk, some new junk magically appears. While the removal of the former junk came with commentary, it must have been deemed unimportant because it was solely about not storing junk in the closets and bedrooms and how I had had enough.
I am living with four pack rats. I am forced to periodically go on crap tossing out sprees just to maintain clear fire lanes to and from doors. Why would I need papers from eighth grade? Why would anyone unless they are still in eighth grade?
And clothes from ten years ago? (okay, so I have some too, but I can almost fit into them and I am planning on doing so soon. Before the next decade, at any rate. They should be back in style about then.)
My blood pressure is much better off if I resist the temptation to travel up the stairs to the life storage space for three adult children, only one who actually still lives here. While I have the BP under control, the invasion of the things from of the past is getting put of control.
I might be having a bonfire this summer.
Found this while rummaging through a drawer. It was from a simpler time when I didn’t need to know geometry or physics to help with homework. I had no excuse for not helping.
Now will be laminating this and a few other notes I found but I don’t know exactly why I do such things. Perhaps it’s so that when they bring them to me at the home I won’t drool on them and ruin them.
Then I had a brilliant idea. I will use them for drink coasters after I laminate them. My own personal crafts from the past.
Our 30th Anniversary is this weekend. I sure hope the kids didn’t get us a stay at a B& B. Ever since I walked in on the man on the toilet I just haven’t been able to enjoy my stays at such places.
How to Score an A+ In Your Financial Future
Well, a couple of years ago, my daugher wrote a paper for kids her age about handling money. She was pretty good at taking care of her finances (even though she owes me money right now) and I thought her book was really well done. So, being into DTP, and having nothing better to do than doat on my budding financial wizard, I decided to put her paper into a book form. See photo on left.
Well, that was easy. The hard part was getting it out there and actually trying to get anyone to pay for it. I had some copies made up and here they sit. Today, after an unsuccessful attempt at dumping them sharing this wisdom on Ebay, which was after a long line of selling disasters, I decided to just give them away. A Rockefeller I am not.
Just send me your name and address and I can give the first ten people this freebee – “How To Score An A+ In Your Finanical Future: In 10 Easy Lessons”. Keep it for Christmas and put it in your teen’s stocking to be sure to get a snide and cutting comment. You can thank me later. And I truly mean that, for if they look at it for just a minute, they might actually learn something. Okay, pay them to read it. It’ll still be worth it.
I say this because now the writer that I published is”all growed up” and she is a CPA at one of the four biggest firms in the nation. (Even though she still owes me money right now.)
You would be doing me a favor too because I am getting sick of kicking the box that they are stored in that has been under my desk for three years. I am getting caloused from bumping into it. C’mon. Take a load off. Send your info to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you this little workbook. Free. No strings. Just because.
