Letting go is a good thing.

No couch potatoes in THIS house this weekend!

Yesterday we 'did' Costco and Home Depot. Between that and putting everything away, it was over 5000 steps on my pedometer.

Yesterday morning my husband announced that Got Junk is coming at 3:00 pm on Tuesday.

We officially moved in together exactly two years ago today and we still can't park cars in our garage. He has been extraordinarily patient with me - 98% of the crap out there is mine.

So today we kicked butt sorting through boxes and making the 'pile' for Got Junk. We found a few treasures, including nearly $2500 in really old savings bonds - lol!

Letting go is a good thing. Finding old pictures was a mixed blessing - there were definitely some that show the RAMPANT dysfunctionality of my childhood - but mostly happy ones, especially of my dear brother. Also found some letters he wrote from prison that brought back some poignant memories.

I hope I can even WALK tomorrow - methinks I'll be a bit sore! :)

    Nothing like togetherness in working on things. Glad you had a trip down Memory Lane (which in your case seems to be right next to the WD40.)

    Such a good way to spend some time together, really. That's something hubby and I need to do after the end of the semester. Ya know, when it's like 101 degrees outside...

    Congrats on a productive day!
