I’ve neglected my blogging lately due to a trip down memory lane. No car needed. Just a lot of time, some physical labor, and a patient family. Garage sale mania has hit our household.
We have been putting boxes away marked “garage sale” for over a year. So as we unpack these treasure boxes, we hop on board memory lane. Remember when he got that for his birthday? Oh, that was my favorite dress on her at that age! Wow, I still cannot believe that we got that for a wedding present. Gee, that was a bargain when we got it back 8 years ago. And the sentiments go on.
Also heading for memory lane are boxes that my parents have lovingly stowed away since I left for college. A cool 20 years ago, yikes! These tubs cause lingering thoughts (Thoughts of, I used to collect that! Or wow, that is surely the essence of the 80s.), quick tears, and many additional hours of labor. Their basement has been a “free” storage haven for the last 30 years for the 4 “J” kids. What will become of that space? Time will only tell.
Tomorrow at precisely 9:00, the garage door will open and memory lane will be up for sale.
Oh and a lemonade stand, what kid hasn’t had a garage sale lemonade stand?!
