What will I leave behind?

July 16th, 2009 at 06:46 pm

The article on the SA blog about being careful with your fortune made me consider just what I am leaving.

As of right this minute, a pile of dirty laundry, pile of patching, pile of papers/cards that aught to be mailed out, pile of photos, pile of dirty dishes (yes I already did a load of dishes and 3 of laundry today) Not to mention piles of books, and computer equipment.

Stuff wise I don't think I have any need to be careful with things. Not that I plan on abusing them, just that I have very few items kept but not used. Not much chance of hiding them. I do have a teddy bear of my mothers (and one of my own) that I hope is kept, plus a doll of my mothers (that I loved as a girl) and one of my own, that I also hope are kept. Among other trinkets. nothing of value to an outsider.

Of course fire could ruin them, but I highly doubt any thief would want the truly important 'things' in my house.

Having so much stuff with history is one of the reasons I don't like to get too much new stuff in...if my daughter has 10 dolls how will she ever know how special it is that I still have mine and my mothers? and where am I supposed to put them all!

Though I have been itching for new plates in my kitchen, something that doesn't easily break, but looks better than old plates are looking rather old, but my two mostly unbreakable ones that I have had since I moved out look rather nice still. I wonder if they make anything like that anymore.

    Look for the correll dishes. they are practically brek proof. Now they have pretty patterns instead of just the blue and greem from the 70s.
