A perk of unpacking

27 Jul

I’ve found a fun perk of unpacking a bunch of boxes – it’s like Christmas when I open a box that has not been touched since I moved from my parents’ house, over 10 years ago. In one box, I found my dad’s old Super 8 movie camera. J and I want to take to a camera shop to see if it still works. I also found some really neat looking square, obviously super old mugs that neither J nor I ever recall seeing. I got too check out all of my fancy dinner plates that we got for our wedding in 2002 but never used. In case you’re nosy, like me, here’s a . I still really love it, but I feel silly using fancy pants plates when the babies, and J, are constantly dropping things.

    Wow – lots of great finds!! I only have a Super 8 app…the real thing sounds better. 😉 Did you go to the movie? Glad you’re finding some fun in the process – I love doing that stuff (don’t shoot me!)

      We’re so busy alternating between unpacking and driving around to check out neighborhoods, we haven’t done much else. I sort of like the unpacking – mostly because when I put things away, it’s about the only time things are neat. 🙂 It’s coming together though.
