We went through our toys again yesterday. I've got at least 8 totes full of toys that have been banished to the basement. Most are wonderful toys, just too many for four kids to play with. I'm thinking of having a rummage sale this week. Never had one before, but the kids are off Friday and I'm thinking it would be best if we did it without Mommy around. Seems she's one of "those" people that gets so attached to something for sentimental reasons that she never wants to get rid of anything. So the toys are banished to the basement. I've got so much stuff that I would love to get rid of. A guitar, a harp, knick-knacks galore, and I'd love to get rid of a few of our New York sized Christmas village that has remained banished for 8 years and will probably never make another New York size appearance. My kids helped to sort through toys yesterday and they really weren't interested in much of anything.
Makes me wonder how we got so much stuff? I'm sure it has something to do with the old dieting adage: Eat less, move more! We gain more and more stuff, but never rid ourselves of anything! I'm sure our house has gained at less 500 pounds of stuff since we've moved in 10 years ago. I'll attempt to thin it out a bit this week. I'm sure the kids would be a huge help, they're looking for some spending money for a trip to Disney around the 4th of July.
It has gotten extremely humid around here this week. I spent the early morning outside with the 1 yr old, but by 9:30 it was 85 and humid. Not sure where our Spring was this year. We've gone for having the heat on to running the air conditioner pretty quick this year.
