FROM CLEANING YOUR HOUSE!
I tidied up our computer room two weeks ago. The owners of the property were sending an appraiser over - probably to up the rent but we'll be leaving in July so more power to them. Anyway, I figured I should clean up some of the piles in the office. I went through a few stacks of magazines, catalogs, things we don't need and I tossed them all out. I then missed trash day so all that I threw out sat in our garage for an additional week.
As the hubs was going through our bills he asked what one particular charge was for and I replied - the kids school pictures. THEN I realized I didn't know where the pictures were. Wait I did know! In that one stack of magazines I remembered seeing something from the school picture place but sure it was just the old order forms - as I combined all 3 in to 1 order when I sent the payment in. I tossed it. They sat in my garage for a week after that and the DAY AFTER the trash was picked up I came to the realization that I threw out my kids school pictures. I didn't even scan them in to the computer. 30 years from now my grandchildren will be sitting down looking at scrapbooks (said as if I scrapbook) and will wonder what ever happened during the 2007-2008 school year. I suppose that can't be worse then when my husband realized how much money I paid for pictures I threw in the trash.
