Today I did some sewing cleaning and yard work. The bulk of the day was the children's toys. It is time to decide where they to from here.
I went downstairs and began dragging out box out of box, Fisher -Price, Star wars, GI JOE, the bulk of this is LEGO, I am hoping our sons will look over the pile in the garage and if they want to keep anything they can take it with them or I will store some for them till a later time . It will be packed and labeled if they want it.
When I left my mothers house after marrying DH, we were busy getting the house cleaned repaired and organized.
One weekend visit to Mothers house I asked for my BAYCO BUILDING SET. My grand mother bought it and I built houses with it often, I love stuff like that. She informed me she "LOANED "it to my stepfathers friend for her child to use. I asked about my DOLLS too, they were gone, I was so surprised. I felt certain my Stepfather wanted all vestiges of my child hood out of the house, that as a big disappointment to me. I felt I should have been asked.
That is the reason I will not do that to our sons. I want their permission to disposed or give away these items.
They all bought very expensive games and some of them are in demand since they are out of print. They have to look at those items too.
I am looking forward to seeing if any of them take anything.
I expect the LEGO will go. My mother brought our eldest son's LEGO from England before it was exported to the U.S. My mother did that to appease me for her giving away my building set.
Our local library is asking for KLEGO so I know it will get a home if they do not want it.
I have a huge closet emptied so I can fill it up with the boxes of fabrics I simply could not give away just yet.
I am hoping to teach some people sewing . The fabric will be very useful then.
I will be able to give hem hands on experience with fabrics. I think they will appreciate practicing on my old unused fabrics, threads and patterns too.
