    The pens are the worst UGH. J used to be really bad about leaving them in his uniform and starting a load of laundry.

    OMG....I'm so embarrassed to say I have almost all the list. HAHAHAHA....It's just crap we have accumulated over the years. Including my bedroom armoire that couldn't fit up stairs in the bedroom. It's now being used as a storage closet in the front room. But, in my defense, It looks great
