Okay, I'm back. And I have the pics I promised. I picked out some of the boxes we have stored downstairs and decided to take a peek at what's inside. It's been years since those have been opened. Maybe they should have been left shut....but, oh well, here goes nothing. I may regret this, but let's see if there's anything to throw out.
This is the first thing the kids fished out. Catgirl wasted no time putting these on and now she wants to keep them. I should have known better than to do this with the kids around.
And this helped me pass high school chemistry. We were allowed to take in notes to the final...as long as they fit onto the periodic table. You can still kind of see my tiny penciled-in writing. There's more on the back...stop trying to turn it over and pay attention. I ended up with writer's cramp, but I passed. And the stupid thing is, after writing all that, I knew it so well that I didn't need to look. Craming in all that stuff actually got us to study. And here we thought the teacher was throwing us a bone.
Essay on Ode on a Grecian Urn. Got an A+ so I can't quite bring myself to throw this one away.
I drew this after going to see Les Miserables. These days I have a hard time drawing stick figures.
Button from elementary school. Go Lions! Okay, we didn't have a team or anything, but I did try to join cheerleading once. I really don't know who we were cheering for, not having a team and all, but cheer we did. Didn't work out...thankfully.
And this is something I found in my grandmother's old sewing box once when I was a kid. I know what it is now, but back then I didn't have a clue. I just thought it was neat. Anybody guess what it is?
Well, that was...useless. Fun, but useless as far as cleaning out the closet is concerned since everything is going back into the box. I'll be back with more tomorrow.
