Shoulder update and collectibles
Other than that just continuing on with our tackling of the house. We took 3 boxes up to Goodwill last night before our workout. I think that guy hates us. We go the last 30 minutes before closing and I'm beginning to think he's making voodoo dolls of us. I went through a few things in my closet and while 2 bins were pretty much not able to be thinned, I was able to thin out one bin and my box. My box is one I swore I'd never sell. I started collecting Wizard of Oz ornaments in 1994 and stopped in 2010 when it was made clear they were really in it for the money and starting to recycle scenes. So 33 ornaments later I had them in a box and they never saw the light of day. At one point when we first got married, I did have a Wizard of Oz room and it was really cute but after about 4 years I got tired of it and wanted something more adult. So into boxes they went as I got one or two for gifts every year. When I came across the box it just reminded me that while I had good intentions and enjoyed them at the time, they weren't going to be something we would retire off of since they're mass produced. It's kind of sad to let them go, if they sell, but I really want someone else to enjoy them and show them off. So I've got them in the closet and will wait until we have a sell pile of things together before listing them in about 2 weeks or so. I have a pic of them and I thought whatever great table I get to put in the studio with the money, I'm going to print out a picture of them and tape it to the bottom to remind me how I got such an awesome piece. I know, I'm a sentimental dork but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Do you collect anything?
