the {WOES} of an anti-packrat

Alright so I have a problem. Needless to say at this point, this will be an "I am wrong, you are right. You are always right. I know I will listen next time. I promise" type post that my husband will greatly appreciate! You see, I have a problem. I AM an anti-pack rat! I do not like clutter! But I might be a bit OCD about it. I mean, I delete the numbers on caller ID as they come in because it feels cluttery to me! (Hanging my head in shame) And I thought it was a good thing that every 6 months I have Jake go through ALL of his toys and throw out anything that he doesn't play with and thinks he can bear to part with (for DI of course)!

Anyway, over the last 10 years of my BLISSFUL married life I have been known to throw away such things as important documents, clothes and even a planner...yes a PLANNER, of my dear, ever so patient, husbands. I am truly sorry honey! Especially today!

Why you may ask?! Because I have torn my house apart looking for a picture that I could have sworn I would never throw away! And so, for today, the day that I was going to start my "Flashback Friday" or at least throw in a random one, with a picture of one of the funnest moments in high school history, I must accept the fact that the picture is no longer in my possession! I must humbly concede to my husband and say, "YES, I am MAYBE over doing it with the throwing away of things, YES I could probably have found room for one measly picture and your planner. I am sorry."

So now, I am asking a favor...this one is for you ROBYN! Remember MORP?? Well, if you still have the group picture, will you post it so I can snag it off of your blog, OR you can email it to me at! I think we have a crazy huge group in our Junior AND Senior year. SO FUN! OH, and a couple of years ago Stacy, Brei, Andrea and I were talking about doing a reunion of it at Stacy's parents, with our husbands this time...wouldn't that be a blast?! Anyway, if there is anything you can do to help me with this one, let me know! :)

OK, I swear I have learned my least for today! However, all bets are off tomorrow though! Sorry!

If it makes you feel any better, when Dan and I were engaged he threw away all my old journals. They were 'clutter' to mother freaked out and dug them all out of the garbage! Don't worry, you'll find the picture!

Also, your Grandma is very cute! Love the cloudy day story!

I'm just curious, when are you going to come up with something for every other day of the week? I mean, you've got Tuesday and Friday covered... have I missed a day? Oh yeah, Monday for weighing in... I have some ideas:

Wednesday's Washings: You could take pics of all the things you have to wash that day.
Thursday's Thoughts: What are you thinking about that day? Rants, etc.
Saturday's Warriors: Who has done something FABULOUS in your life that week?
Sunday's Sinnners: Who has wronged you that week? :) Really give 'em *&$% in those posts.

Just some ideas...

OH MY HECK COURTNEY! I laughed so hard while I was reading that, probably because I could hear you laughing at your own cleverness with Saturday's Warriors! You are funny!

I might have to take you up on those! :)

Courtney said...

Oh, I totally laughed at myself :)

Friday Flip-up Day?
