When I was in 4th-6th grade, I loved reading Babysitter's Club
books. I owned more than 100 them. (Many with the "original" covers. They changed the style of the covers.) Then, sometime in 7th or 8th grade, I sold them all at a garage sale for $25.00 - more than 100 books for only $25.00. And I have never forgiven myself. I loved those books! I want them back!
Ever since then, I've been really bad at throwing things away. I never know when I'm going to want something again.
So now, I'm trying to clean my room, and in my closet I have two boxes full of video-tapes. These video tapes consist of the first two seasons of Charmed
. I currently hate Charmed, and don't know what I was thinking when I insisted on taping the entire first two seasons. I haven't watched the tapes in four or five years. If I ever really want to watch an old episode of Charmed (though I don't anticipate that happening), I could just rent the first season DVDs.
I can throw away my boxes of tapes. I can do it. I will not regret it later.

The first movie to have ever made me cry real tears at a movie theater:
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
What does that say about me?

School's Finished. It's summer. Summer, so far, is boring to the point of actual boredom. (As opposed to the point of relaxation.)
I was babysitting the other day. As the parents were leaving, the mother said:
"The kids can watch a DVD, but I want then in bed by 8:30. If the DVD isn't over until 8:45, they can finish it. But get them to bed early."
Then, the mother went out to the car. The dad was still in the house. He said, to the 8-year-old:
"You don't have to listen to Mom. You can watch as much TV as you want, and you can stay up late."
