Waxing Nostalgic

One of my jobs while I'm at my parents house is to go through several boxes of "my stuff" that has accrued from the time I was born. I must admit, it's been quite the trip down memory lane. One thing I've learned is that I will find a place to save some of my kids' artwork! It was the artwork I'd made and a few of the stories I'd written that got put in the save piles. I looked at some of the artwork I made in middle school and thought, "Hey, this isn't half bad!" so some of it may make appearances in our future home :) One of my favorite finds is my Furby! I bought him the first CRAZY retail Christmas he came out, I was lucky enough to work at a large retailer and snagged one the day we got an order in! To say that Kermit didn't like him would be an understatement.

After dropping off a few orders this afternoon, Kermit and I went for a walk at a local park that I LOVED exploring as a child. It's always so nice to go to a place filled with memories. One of my fondest from this park was when I was maybe 3 or 4 and it came time to leave the park and my brother refused. My mom threatened to drive away and when she actually started doing it I started sobbing hysterically and screaming, "No, you can't LEAVE him here, I LOVE him!!" As it turns out she was just going to drive around the parking lot to scare him. Eh, live and learn!

I have decided that the thing I'm going to miss most about Wisconsin's ecosystem is the trees. I LOVE the trees. I will not, however, miss the weather! The photo above looks wet because it was SNOWING today. It's almost May. And it's still snowing.


  1. Kelle that video of Kermit & Furby is hilarious!!

  2. You will miss the trees for sure. Come September you may miss opening your front door to non oven like temperatures. :)
    I wish I still had my Furby. But Buster and Scout would probably kill it. They play rough. Have fun digging around in your part!

  3. Ha ha, thanks Shannon, and Laura - I may miss the oven-like temperatures once it cools off...hmm. I really do hope they say that on the news, "We are forecasting oven-like temperatures this afternoon!" Ha ha.
