Are you ready for another random crap bin?
Mohinder isn't. He likes his new throne.
There were a ton of papers, so I decided to tackle those first. I know from past experience that if I don't deal with paperwork first, I will end up stuffing everything back in the box when it comes time to deal with them. Avoidance!
Awww, ticket stub for New Moon. Justin and I took Adriana to Olive Garden and then New Moon when she was 6 weeks old - our first family outing. She slept the whole time and it was awesome [unlike Lucia when we went to Longhorn and Crazy Stupid Love - we had to leave halfway through. Also, I googled Bradley Cooper and Emily Blunt because I couldn't remember the name of the movie. I meant Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Do I have any functional brain cells left?]
I pulled out all of the junk mail, old bills and receipts, and assorted other crap and tossed it. I was left with a pile of paperwork related to Adriana's birth and subsequent hospital visits, and a pile of cards congratulating us on our wedding, baby shower, new baby, and new home. All of that happened in the same 9 month period. Crazy.
Niagara Falls adventure passes from the weekend we were married. I HIGHLY recommend a shotgun wedding in the falls - it was intimate and fun and perfect for us (and FutureAdriana).
A bag of BB's (Justin's). I'm pretty sure we got rid of his gun, so we will likely get rid of these too. I set it aside just to make sure.
Big score #1: All of my turbo jam and pilates DVDs. Note that there are also two pregnancy-related workout DVDs, which I enthusiastically ordered during the week between finding out I was pregnant and the onset of my debilitating "morning" sickness which lasted for 9 months. The CDs were set aside until I figure out what is on them, the game and the VHS tapes (except Empire Records, which they will have to pry out of my cold dead hands) were put in the donate/garage sale pile, and the DVDs were shelved.
Some grad school crap, which was thrown out, except for the owl notebook, because, you know. Owls.
Ugh, I need to get all of my Adriana pics in one place. Also - my bayyybeeee is growing up too fast :(
Uno put in our game drawer. Magic cards in the Justin pile. BB's, nintendo games, and magic cards, what is he, 12?
I have no idea where any of these things came from (or what the plug and that thing on the right are for). Trash, trash, Justin pile, Justin pile.
Hair stuff taken to the bathroom, earrings and night cream to my nightstand, pen and jump drive to my laptop bag, lint roller under the sink, zippo to the Justin pile, disc thing to Adriana's room (it goes to her sound spa), credit card to the shredder. Yay, earrings!
Big score #2: $185 worth of gift cards! The Dave & Buster's cards are from my FIL and SMIL, from the Christmas after Adriana was born. We moved when she was 5 months old, and never had the chance to use the cards before they went to bin hell. I hope they still work - it's a tradition to go to Red Lobster (gross) and D&B (fun) for Justin's birthday.
That was a fun haul, it feels like Christmas. If you just found a $10 iTunes card, what would you buy?
