The Huge Barn Sale




Well, I have been bringing stuff up to the barn for weeks now and I knew I had alot, but the other day my mother, mother in law and I went up to sort through it. OMG!!! What was I thinking. I joked the other day about the show Hoarders, but I think I could really be one of those people. I guess the only thing that really separates me is the fact that I can look at and say "have I used it in the last two years?" and if not, it goes. I still have to walk through each room in my house and see if I have everything. How did I ever think we were going to move. With the military, you are allowed a certain amount of pounds when you move, according to your rank. Of course rank pretty much equals time in service and amount of shit collected. Well, I guess 22 years in the service means we have accumulated alot of shit.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
