I definitely didn't inherit the organization gene from anyone in my family. I think that's pretty much evidenced by the fact that neither my sister or I have lived in this house since the early 90's yet so much of our stuff remains.
I did keep a few things that I found in my old closet. I'm not a Vulcan after all. Here's what I decided to keep, and thus bring with me to Africa.
- My rock collection. These are shiny polished gem like looking rocks. Not just gravel gathered from the yard.
- a collection of seashells. I like shells and I will organize them in a pretty glass container.
- The Laura Ingalls Wilder collection of Little House on The Prairie books. I may see if my god daughter would like these. If not, I will just keep them.
- A pastel drawing that my middle school art teacher made of Tom Cruise that my husband thinks looks like him. I will frame this.
I took some funny pictures of a few of the items I found. All of these ended up getting thrown away. So grab your time machine and take a look!
|I made this alligator in elementary school out of plaster and paper mache'. I think it's pretty good.|
|Hahaha. I think was a game similar to Simon where you had to remember patterns.|
|Only part of the cassette collection that I found. Even by 80's standards I think this Walkman cassette player had to be bulky right?|
|I begged my parents to get me this game. They did not. Someone else finally got it for me around 1982.|
|Does anyone under 40 even know who this dog is?|
