So it’s 4AM, but I’m still working on packing up the house and just had to share with someone the ridiculous things I’m finding as we pack. Darling Husband lived here years before I met him, so there are some closets I just have never really gone through. Here are some snippets from my night…
Me: Why is there a bag of chihuahuas in our closet??
Darling Husband: They’re from Taco Bell!
Me: That really does not answer my question…
Me: Why do we own three different versions of Monopoly? We barely ever even PLAY Monopoly.
Darling Husband: Well, first I had the regular Star Wars one, but then the came out with the collector’s edition so obviously I had to have that. And the Beatles one is just awesome.
Me: Do we really have to put up your coconut heads in the new house? Wouldn’t it look much more nice and … adult to not have them?
Darling Husband: NO! THEY’RE PIRATES! It’s awesome, we have to keep them!
We haven’t even gotten to the attic. I’m a bit scared. lol. Oh, and I also convinced him to part with one of his two wind chimes that he keeps IN THE HOUSE. He could not explain the purpose of that one to me.

lol if it makes you feel better, I think we have like 6-7 versions of Monopoly and we don’t play it either. 😛

The biggest fight I think I’ve ever seen my parents have was over a bunch of crap they found when we were moving from our old house to the one they live in now. xD Makes me wonder what kind of stuff I’ll find when I go to move in with my Fiance after the wedding… :/ I know for a fact that he has BOXES of notebooks from his high school days that are filled with notes,poems, song lyrics and sheet music. Dreading having THAT conversation with him. 🙂

Goodness. I’m going to start packing this weekend for our move in a few weeks. I went through a drawer trying to find something and I pulled out such RANDOM stuff. Like his OLD cell phone from 4 or 5 years back. Why do we have it? No. Freaking. Idea. I’m NOT looking forward to packing up his office. It’s going to be… fun.

Recently I found some old Seventeen magazines in old desk. I think I wanted to keep them for some reason??? I remember being 16 years old and finding the magazines too young for me then, I’m 30 now. My trash bag wieghed about 60 lbs that night.
@Wonderstruck: Your Fi’s things are pretty funny, esp. the chihuahuas. Plus I just love the word chihuahua.

My favorite was a digital camera (used, but in its box). The camera was 1.8 megapixels, the size of a brick with a screen the size of a postage stamp. The entire time we’ve been together (3+ years), Fiance never used the camera because I was the picture taker of our couple. Not to mention the fact that Fiance and I both have new iPhones. It was like pulling teeth getting him to admit we have absolutely no use for his camera. He said it just felt wrong to not have a digital camera hehe. He bucked up and donated it to goodwill a few months ago. So proud 😉
I found my high school prom shoes. Chunky ivory heels with square toes. What was I thinking?
