I have been working hard around here, and am rewarding my productivity with a short blog post. My office/sewing room/pop fridge room/craigslist holding area is CLEAN. It's a New Year's miracle. I've been seriously gutting this house out, trash bags full at a time. It started as a get-the-house-ready-to-sell project and has turned into a live-more-simply-and-be-happier-with-less-clutter project. Just so happens, it's a New Year and even though I've never been a resolutions type of gal, I feel like there's one brewing. More on that later, in the meantime I found a stash of stuff that makes me laugh.
This is a card my sister sent me during my freshman year of college. I feel guilty about that year of our lives...our family moved right after I graduated high school and my sister had to start a new school her senior year. (She handled it a lot better than I would have.) She is my all-time BFF and she can get me rolling on the floor laughing like no one else. Keep in mind she would have been 17, almost 18 when she sent this, we're 12 months apart in age.
In case you can't read it:
Hello from the city of Omaha and the Rowe household. I hope this card finds you in good health and spirits these holiday days. I have just returned from my place of learning and am now in the process of communicating via greeting cards with my favorite sister. Today I am rejoicing for my schedule allows a day of no extra curricular work outside of school. Another reason for my rejoicement is that I have received a special greeting card from our dear friend Reba. She is also in good health and spirits as she has revealed to me the love of her life Diek Humbergier. However, I have been informed that he is of a petite size and is extremely unattractive. It is unfortunate for her in that sense of the matter. I am losing my train of thought for I must escort our brother to his place of employment in just a few moments. However, I will surely continue this note further when I return. Pardon me. I have returned and upon my return I have begun to view the popular teen soap opera Beverly Hills 90210. However, I must go now. Have a lovely evening. Father has just been caught reading over my shoulder and he thinks he is rather amusing. I will talk to you at a later time.
I know I was rolling in 1999 when I received that little gem in the mail, and it still gets me going today. I love you, sister!
