If you follow this blog routinely, you'll know that recently I posted two poems I had written in 6th grade.
Here's the complete story of how I found them....
I moved out of my parents' house (basically for good) a couple of months after graduating from high school. That was in 1994 -- so you can figure out how roughly how old I am from that statement.
Anyways, much of my "stuff" that I didn't take with me ended up shoved into the closet. Then, my old bedroom was made into a guest bedroom.
That's still what it is today -- though my mom did recently redecorate it.
Over the holidays, my mom did some cleaning out of the closet.
She found a bunch of boxes of "stuff" that she wasn't sure what I'd want to do with it.
Therefore, my dad recently dropped it off in our garage (and I'm sure there's more to come in the future from my parents' house)....
Last week, when it was extremely cold and Luke and I were really stuck inside, I took one morning to go through the boxes.
This will take several posts, and so, here's Box #1....
A drawing of my house that I did in 7th grade (it was dated March 3, 1989)....Marc, when he saw it, said, "You drew that. Wow! That's actually somewhat good." (Keep in mind that I NEVER claim to be an artist at all, and even I was somewhat impressed with this drawing. It truly does look the house we lived in at the time).
The folder I designed for my 7th grade Home Economics materials....I vaguely remember the teacher having us go through magazines and pick out pictures to put on a folder.
I don't really ever remember being into "Clothes Swapping," but perhaps I liked to do that back in 7th grade. Notice the "Super Sarah" at the top. I find that funny.
Apparently, that year, I designed a puzzle. The picture of what the puzzle is to look like is on top. The actual puzzle is on the bottom -- not too bad.
**No, I didn't keep this for Luke. The puzzle pieces did not easily go together or come apart.
A "Breakfast Pizza" recipe -- again, from 7th grade Home Economics. I plan on making this over the next couple of weeks. If it's good, I'll post it then for all to read and make.
At the bottom of Box #1 was a very fragile construction paper Christmas Tree. It was designed with a bunch of cut-out handprints -- I assume from my own hands. It actually went directly in the trash -- it was crumbly and gross and made a mess.
And, for the grand finale of Box #1 -- the Pantyhose Art....
O.K., so please laugh...Marc and I certainly did. I actually do not at all remember making this.
It's a piece of pantyhose stretched over some misshapen wire hanger, complete with construction paper cut-outs for a face.
U.G.L.Y., if I do say so myself.
After showing Marc, it did promptly go in the trash. Truly, I shouldn't have even taken a photo of it for this blog, but I figured you all would need a good laugh for a Friday. I hope I succeeded.
I'm not a real packrat, and so, I didn't keep too much. But, I kept just a few precious things.
Stay tuned for more of Sarah's Home Bedroom Cleanout :)
A trip back in time
