Once again I’m at one of those points when I don’t really have much to say and when I do I’m too tired to write it all out. We’ve been busy going here and there doing summery(I might have made that word up?) things. Swimming and playing outside. Spending time with our bunnies, goats and chickens, eating snow cones and watching movies.
Speaking of movies, a week or so ago one of the boys’ grandmas gave them a VCR and small TV. I thought I was done with VHS tapes and tube TV’s a few years ago when I sold them all in a garage sell. That was until my kids saw a VCR and were smitten. They begged to get some VHS tapes, so today I went Goodwill and got 8 tapes, most of them Disney movies and another VCR with remote(that’s important because most of the remotes were missing on the other VCR’s). I paid 1.50 each for the movies and a whooping 6.99 for the VCR. Their other grandma is giving them another small tube TV. So each boy will have a TV and VCR and I once again have VHS tapes in my life. Who’d a thought!
Their daddy likes vintage computer stuff and the bug has hit my boys. Except their vintage things are things that I actually used and even still owned a few years ago. While shopping in Goodwill, K2 saw a cassette stereo player, to which he claimed “I love those!” I had to turn him down, though the stereo was only about 10 dollars because I am done with cassette tapes. I don’t wish to own them again. They were a sweet memory of my junior high and early high school years and hopefully they will stay that way. That is unless two sweet boys talk me into it.
Anything you thought you were done with but has once again become part of your life?
Think I will be able to persuade K2 away from a cassette player? How about the record player he has been begging for? Is my house going to be the place where old electronics come to die? Will I forever be vacuuming jumpers and screws off my floors? Someone may need to come rescue me or perhaps I will just start collecting vintage things of my own. I still own a few Care Bears and Cabbage Patch dolls!
