I am blasting through Rod's playroom which I've been needing to do for a while now.

Hey, great new siggy! It really captures that "beachy" feeling. :-)

Men do not understand. It is NOT ludicrous to keep the train table. Won't it be nice to pass that down to Rod's kids someday? I have kept certain things that are "special" like that. (I can't for the life of me think of examples right now, sorry!) Other things that are clearly not that special we give away or donate to charity. To be honest, a lot of times we just stick stuff in the basement "to deal with it later". ;-) I think you have to be selective though. There's no reason to save EVERYTHING. Dh's parents saved some of the rattiest, lamest toys of his and I'm like "Um, WHY??" But they are a whole different story.

HTH!

I love your signature.

I know Meredith is only 3 but we don't have any of her baby toys except some stuffed animals that Red recorded his voice in before he left for any long underways/deployments. If she doesn't want to play with something I give it away or toss it.

(I hear you on the basement/to deal with it later thing - you would not believe how much of Chicago we have down there...and it's just not 'later' yet)

*Threadjack*

So Sue, what's happening with the house in Chicago? Did you get it sold? I think last I heard you were at the point of negotiating some repairs and such with the potential buyers.

Sold, using 'articles of agreement for deed' meaning I'm the bank for the first 24 months as if it was a 30 year mortgage; they pay me monthly payments with interest (and I have to then give back 31% of that interest to the govt come tax time).

Mitchell doesn't really have any toys that are special or that he is particularly attached to so I can't see us keeping anything long term. If there were something special though I would consider it. With our regular moving, and never a basement in sight ;) keeping anything we don't use is not something we like to do. Clothes wise I have kept the outfit Mitchell came home from the hospital in but that's it.
