Shredding 1993

It always amazes me how quickly the weekends go!

Saturday was super busy. We ran some errands and did some light shopping. I took the kiddo rollerblading for another lesson. He did pretty good considering he’s still trying to find his balance. 🙂

The Man had his two daughters over for dinner that night. We had wings to celebrate the return of hockey. I was super happy about this. I have been missing my Dallas Stars. So we watched the game and then we went to Braum’s. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a hot fudge sundae and it was delish!

Sunday got the kid’s hair cut and then went grocery shopping – one of my least favorite chores. Took the kid rollerblading again. I think I’d like to get a bike so I can ride while he blades. I so need the exercise and I don’t want to join a gym. I know that will be a waste of money.

One of the things I decided to do this year was to get rid of all the old financial stuff that has been sitting in the garage for 6 years. Turns out this stuff is from 1993-1997. I don’t know WHY I was holding on to this stuff. It’s all old bills and bank statements. Back then the bank sent the canceled checks back with the statements. I also had duplicate checks. So I get the pleasure of shredding checks twice. But going through all this stuff and shredding it has been sort of a purging for me. I’m seeing all these things I did, the guys I were with. I have to say… I was a total naive dumbass. What a loser I was. I can’t believe I allowed myself to act like this wimpy, simpering fool who thought she needed a man to make her life complete. It disgusted me. It was a lifetime ago and I am SO not that same person. I’m much stronger. And I don’t take crap from people anymore. Maybe those were the lessons I had to learn to become the person I am today. All I know is, shredding all this stuff feels as though a weight is lifted. I will never be that person again. Thank God.

So I’ve shredded all of 1997. Now I’m working on 1993-1996. I also found some old MajorMUD maps. Which really excited me. I spent many a night playing this game with my brother and sis-in-law online. My online MUD name was Poison. Someday I will write a story about this.

The kiddo is out of school today – lucky for him. The rest of us have to go back to work. Better get to it.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
