So, I realize you might be getting tired of hearing about my paper-purging efforts, but I had such a productive weekend. I sorted all the kids' papers, and we went through them together to see what they wanted to keep and what they didn't. It was hilarious! Old love notes, pictures and doodles they'd drawn, it was just so fun to sit and reminisce with them and to see how far they've come.
Not only did we unearth those little sentimental treasures, but I also unearthed a $20 bill from an old birthday card, my daughter's social security card we'd misplaced a few years back, and a little bag of bite-size Three Musketeers bars that were only slightly smushed.
All in all, I'd count that as a very productive, treasure-filled, paper-purging weekend. And the good news is I only have ONE CORNER of my room left to purge. I wish I had taken a before picture so that you can all realize what an amazing feat this is. I also wish I'd taken a picture of the bags and bags of paper that I have recycled this month. Yet, even without the pictures, I'm feeling good.
What did you do this past weekend?
