Memory Lane by Robin Janney

I'm going to keep this short, because sadly I'm still living without internet. It's very inconvenient in more than one way, but I'm dealing...I have no choice!!  Sadly I don't have pictures to post today. 

Tuesday evening as the thunderstorms raged in my area and the lights couldn't decide whether they were staying on or off, I was going through an old plastic bin. Hubby and I have been trying to clean and reorganize our home. Needless to say, I took a pleasant trip down memory lane while he was at work. 

I found my high school diploma. Which reminded me that twenty years have passed since June 17th of 1994. Not that big of a reminder as the reunion notices have been circulating Facebook for a while now.  My graduation night was highly emotional for me, for reasons I won't delve into.  And they weren't as string as the good memories. 

I enjoyed looking at the year books I found too, mostly reading all the messages fellow students wrote me.  A lot told me not to change and I was to aim high in life.  I might do a blog post about that later.

I found a couple packs of older pics, probably about ten years old. How much younger we all looked!!  There were even pics of some of our furry family members that aren't with us anymore.  Yes I'm one of those people who take pictures of their animals.   I promise I'll do a story about them later and post their pics.

The one part that struck me the most was the old journal I found from 2004.  My oh my life has changed since then!!  My entire thinking process has changed.  My location has changed, as well as my marital status.  I'm a published author.  I'm not in the same church.  What was important then isn't necessarily important now.

I haven't found anything as interesting since that night, but I still have a few spots to dig through.  A few days before this I was going through some old computer disks and found an old story, but not the one I was looking for!  I hope I come across my other disks on this reorganization!!!

What about you?  What's the most interesting thing you've come across while reorganizing and cleaning??
