Boxes of Memories

So Robert and I had to pack up our disaster of an apartment and move it into a storage unit last week. I say disaster because I had packed some things... and then I left for College Station amongst the packing and left Robert to pack some things... and then when I got back from CS the Friday night before we moved it was mad dash to place all the last minute things into boxes. We stayed up that night till 2 and then woke up at 7:30am Saturday morning to continue the madness. We managed to pack all our favorite items up nice and organized in labeled boxes with plenty of that wrapping newspaper stuff you can get at Uhaul... then we managed to throw the most random things into the last minute boxes...like baskets with pictures with computer cords...and what did we label these boxes (as if we thought we were being fast and informal)..... Misc.
How in the world does that tell us whats in there! But of course its the last minute word choice when you just don't want to write out everything thats in there...so now we have like 10 Misc. boxes. Hopefully we won't need those for a while!

Even with jam packing two uhaul trailers, my parents SUV, and the bed of two trucks... we still had some stuff not make it. This was ok since Robert had to work in Abilene on Monday and Tuesday so we had to come back anyway. But on Monday night after trying to throw some more Misc. boxes (bc of course all we had left were items that didn't go well with each other) we came across a tupperware bin of old pictures and albums. We were pretty tired but we stopped and examined the contents...and to our surprise found some funny old pictures from our first prom, our high school year books, pictures from choir in high school and even some older photos on me. It was great reading through the yearbooks and looking at the pictures... how far we have come!

I look forward to actually going through all this stuff in more detail when we actually move into a home sometime hopefully soon. Its always fun to look through old photos and remember the beginnings...memories aren't meant to be boxed up and away... they are meant to be....remembered. Have a great week everyone!
