Four More Boxes

I didn't mention the two boxes I got from my wicked step-mother the other day. At the time, there were too many raw emotions to be mature and logical, so instead I threw a sarcastic paragraph onto my BYE blog. Four more boxes arrived on Saturday, but went to the rental office where they were locked up until today. Today's boxes included some fabulous stuff:

  • The Jamie file from my dad's filing cabinet -- report cards, school reports, and other assorted papers I haven't gone through
  • A large envelope of pictures, many of those were small school pics of my cousins and pictures taken before I was born
  • An entire box of Cabbage Patch Kids - most without their clothes
  • An ecclectic box of clothes - my prom dress (the shoes were in another box), a CHS color guard uniform, my girl scout uniform (Juniors), my high school jacket, and a bag of baby dresses
  • The Vermont teddy bear I got for high school graduation (which was in its own box)
  • A personalized Lenox Christmas ornament for me and Scott from my grandfather that was mailed to us c/o my father. Now I have to send a 2 years belated thank you note explaining that I'm not an ungrateful bitch! The ornament is beautiful.
  • And the contents of one of the drawers from my bedroom: newspapers from the bus accident and letters from my Gulf War (Desert Storm) pen pal. Strangely enough, the same drawer also included Playbills from all of the Broadway shows I've ever seen. They weren't included.

  • I'm pretty sure there's still more to come. After all, I haven't yet gotten the slides from my childhood or my autographed picture of Ty Pennington. More details as this story unpacks!

    ***** A carefully worded thank you note could go a LONG way here! *****
