Sock Drawer Trauma
One of the tasks I wanted to get accomplished today was straightening out my sock drawer and tossing away all the crap I’ve accumulated in there. (I did the bra drawer too - and tomorrow, the clothes!)
Most of the stuff was things I thought I needed to save for one reason or another but now think better of it and need to toss.
But then I came across my pregnancy test from the baby I lost, wow, almost 2 years ago now. That and the bracelets from the hospitalization. I threw the bracelets away, I’d not like to remember that. But the test, the test I put in my chest with the baby books and tests from my other children. He may not have made it, but I carried him under my heart as I did the others. For a little while anyways.
Ugh, and then I found my invitation to the junior prom (!) with both our names on it. HOW’S A GIRL SUPPOSED TO MOVE ON?! Kidding. Almost threw it out, but tucked it back in there instead, behind my socks and undies, with cards from my kids and yeast infection medicine.
I’m sentimental and practical.
