Can’t throw anything away

As I was cleaning the house today, dusting, hubby asked why I kept these 4 mugs. Yes they are cracked and not any use, BUT, those were my mother’s and she isn’t with us anymore. They were damaged in the mail . I sat gluing them together crying like a child who was told no. I showed him the 1st mug, it was all in one piece, I told him this represents us as newly weds, the next was cracked. Little life struggles, the third in many pieces . I said this represents the worst struggles of our life together, and the 4th not broken but cracked and chipped. Us 47 years later very happy. He thought for a few minutes and said “Good one, Jack” and walked off. I didn’t know if I should laugh or go after him and kick him in the back end. Good one, Gary.

I gave up on spring cleaning as it really isn’t spring and went to the sewing room. I did get block 1 of row A of the Dear Jane quilt made.


I am on a roll. On to the next one. If I make one block a day except the days I have the granddaughter, MAYBE by Christmas I will have it finished.

I hope you have had a good weekend. Do something fun.

  1. Great way to explain that. How could anyone argue with that logic and sentiment. I tend to hold on to things too. I’m very sentimental too. I’d rather be sewing than cleaning too.
