Mixing Bowls and the Cake Dome

Posted on 2014-03-21 14:30:38

life and stuff


It's been almost a year since we have been in our "new" home.  The garage is still full of boxes.  I have been missing things like my set of mixing bowls and my extra large cake dome.  A friend tells me that if I haven't used it in a year then I don't need it.  Part of me agrees with her.  But as I root around in boxes looking for things - I realized that this "stuff" represents my life.  The box of 9 X 13 pans?  A 2 year stint making freezer meals for a brave friend who agreed to try my idea for a cooking business.  The box of tablecloths?  The time in my life before sports took over family life and we actually set a table and ate a home cooked dinner every night.  The box of wrapping paper?  From a season when birthday parties seemed to happen every other weekend and the motto was: "the less spent on a gift, the better the wrapping needs to be".

And so, as I search for those mixing bowls and the extra large cake dome, I visit the past and I think about the future.  I may no longer need all those 9 X 13 pans but it won't be too long before these boys of mine will be moving out.  And we may not eat dinner together every night but we still celebrate special events.  As for the wrapping paper?  That is one box that can find a new home in someone else's garage.
