Cleaning Up

One thing about moving, you find things you’ve not seen for a while.  Allison, Ryan, and I just spent the last hour or two out in the garage, going through boxes of things that we haven’t touched since we moved here about 18 months ago. (Well, Ryan helped a bit, but mostly whined.)

Clearly, with stuff we haven’t used in that long, a lot of it gets pitched.  On top of the stuff that we would throw out just because we don’t use it, we also threw out a bunch of old clothes and such that had never been unpacked, and got half eaten by mice in the garage.  Most of them were out there because they didn’t fit, so at least the mice got some good use out of them.

I also condensed down a lot of computer parts, wires etc.  There were some old ISA network cards in there that I don’t think I’ll ever have a use for.  Of course, now that I’ve pitched them, I’ll probably need one soon.

It’s a little early, but I’m sure many of you will be doing some spring cleaning before too long.  What treasures might you find that you forgot you had?

It's so true that you find things that you forgot you had or remembered you had it but didn't know where it was. Brings back memories sometimes, especially when they are pictures.
