  • one pair of fleece pants. they didn't fit well at the best of times.
  • one pair of board shorts. which did fit well at the best of times.
  • one purse. well-loved. well-used.
  • one more curtain tie-back. such superfluousness.
  • two children's magazines. makes me slightly sad. likely the result of post-thanksgiving carb loading.

  • two manuals. to equipment that is gone, long gone.
  • one necklace. provenance and current owner unknown.
  • one more cord. they breed.
  • one balloon. these no longer show up with much frequency, now that the littles are large.

  • the last dvd. sigh of relief.
  • a pair of snowboarding boots. the giant outside belies the too-small interior.
  • three tubes flavored lip balm. blech.

  • another key. what would it unlock?
  • a curtain tie-back. superfluous.
  • a printer software disc. i'm almost free of discs, forever.
  • an ink cartridge. i know i am supposed to recycle these, but sometimes...
  • a shirt. shrunken intentionally, but not successfully.

  • one power cord. gleefully tossing things i may later need.
  • four tiny pencils. as a child i would break new pencils to make these.
  • a plastic tray. possibly part of a printer. not an important part, apparently.
  • four parts of a toy. that we no longer own.
  • two pencil cap erasers. which are useful but somehow irritating.

  • about a million pieces of paper. i hate paper so much that i accumulate a lot of it. which does not make me like it any better.
