Kind of like Christmas....

Our extra stuff from our move to Wyoming has been in storage for 5 1/2 years... in my brother-in-law's garage.

We've been living temporarily... in a tiny rental house all that time while building our new home.

Today with the help of my two sons (ages 11 & 15), we started going thru some of our boxes and bringing them to the basement of the new house.

My older son found a metal slinky. I guess they don't make them that way anymore... I haven't gotten it back yet...

My younger son found my grab-it thingy for reaching into high cabinets. He thought it was great fun until I took it away. Poor kitty was being tortured with it!

I'll tell you... it's like Christmas... except as I went thru each box... I had a flood of wonderful memories of life back home in Massachusetts. I could remember where I kept each item in my big, old turn of the century colonial home.... sigh... : )

Now, if I can just get the mudding done... and painting done!!! Yes, I know... one step at a time!

I'm just getting impatient because I have all those wonderful kitchen appliances that I want to start using!!!!!

It sounds as though you are really starting to settle in. Get to the kitchen, woman!

It is just like Christmas, isn't it? I had my stuff in storage for 3 years. I had forgotten about so many things. But, a lot of stuff I never did move into the new house....I just didn't seem to need it anymore. Now I just have to get off my duff and take it to the thrift store......

I have baby stuff in there!!! My kids are now 11 & 15!

I'm thinking yard sale... but some things I want to keep for grand children. I know they're a ways away... yet.

I have this little table with 2 yellow chairs that both my boys enjoyed so much. That's a keeper! And those trucks... got to keep them...
