That box in the middle is twice the size of the blue one - it is filled with stuff I'm recycling. The three boxes stacked to the right are the ones I'm keeping...until I evolve again.
My job during this was to condense my six boxes of memories into a smaller amount (I've also been reorganizing all the drawers/cupboard of the kitchen too...I didn't realize how much time the kitchen reorg would take). I've gotten the boxes down to three. Which, is pretty amazing for me. Apparently, I'm a bit of a pack rat.
For Day 1:
I have every progress report since first grade. Naturally, I enjoyed reading through the comments.
My 6YO, Avant Garde Gal, recently received a progress report that said this:
"AGG is a bright student. She works very slowly and carefully, and is very artistic. She is very capable of doing first grade work. AGG is kind to friends and helpful in class. However, sometimes AGG gets easily frustrated and does not participate..."
I had asked her teachers about the "easily frustrated" part and they told me PE is one area AGG is not fond of. I can relate. Sometimes she gets her glasses knocked off when they play crab ball, or some other sort of game with a ball. Dude. I'd be pissed off if that happened, had happened. My daughter is also a bit of a perfectionist. She likes to get things right. We're constantly telling her that it doesn't have to be perfect, just her best work, and that mistakes are part of learning.
There's that show I enjoy, "Who Do You Think You Are?" I like to think that saving my history, will help my posterity understand, or have someone to relate to when they get frustrated.
Ha! See how I just justified my pack-rattiness? Sneaky. Just like a rat.
