    OH YEAH!  I’m with you!  I see old stuff and I just want to burn it!  Sometimes I wish I could just erase parts of my life but, what can you do???

    Yeah, it did bother me that, in the "excitement" (not that it’s really exciting, but you know what I mean!) of applying for our marriage certificate, we had to go to the courthouse, get copies of his divorce decree, seal it in the envelope with our birth certificates, etc. and mail it away. 

    Oh well, what can you do?!

    I’ve been there.  My biggest "issue" right now is that we are house shopping, and when finally do move we will open our storage unit, and I’m not so sure I will be prepared to go through all of the old memories in there.  Photo albums, etc… of ex’s for both of us await us in our storage unit.  Bummer.

    It doesn’t bother me at all – I see your point, but I try to look at things this way… I am the sum of my past experiences. You see, if my ex hadn’t cheated on me, I wouldn’t have left him and moved in with my best friend from high school.  She wouldn’t have introduced me to my friend Mark, who took me to this great bar in the Quarter.  If I had never gone to that bar, I wouldn’t have met my fiance, who worked there.  So I don’t regret any of the crappy things from my past, because they made me the person I am today, and led me to where I am.
