"Is it the trailer rental?"
"The increasingly high cost of gas for a 4000 mile trip?"
No, although that's nothing to sneeze at either.
"What about the cost of replacing the things you can't take with you?"
Close, but no cigar.
Give up? The most expensive part so far is having a boyfriend that owns one of these:
|Karl's 1964 1/2 Mustang|
Sigh... I accept that Karl loves this car and really wants to take it with him. It's also a bargaining chip if he ever opens his mouth about the amount of space my craft supplies will take up in the trailer.
I also spent the day today going through my boxes of miscellaneous mementos. I've avoided ever making a decision about whether something qualifies as a keepsake by stuffing it all in photo boxes. In the spirit of having a fresh start, I was brutal in going through photos, ticket stubs, and cards. In the process, I found these gems:
|Me on my first day of kindergarten!|
|My little brother's first bike when he "gradutated" preschool|
|Little Karl (on the right)|
And finally, I cut my brick of freshly made Grapefruit Shampoo Bars and it turned out perfect! I've decided to gauge the quality of my bath and body products by how much I want to eat them. The soap looked just like pudding when I poured it, and the bars are so super creamy now I can't wait to use it after it's cured. I haven't used traditional shampoo or conditioner in over a year, and my hair has never looked better. Less crap = more nice, in my opinion.
