I Found It!!!

After 6 monthes, I finally decided to unpack the non-essential items that were stacked in boxes in our ever-crowded basement. I decided to start this large project today. Yipee. As much as I enjoy cleaning and decluttering and throwing away, it's a big project, and it's going to take a looooooong time, so it's hard to just delve into a thing like this! Anyhoo, I found a strange looking box, one that wasn't recognizable to me, and I was like, "What could be in there? I don't remember packing it. Hmmm." Kenny just happened to come downstairs to see the progress at the very moment I reached in the box and found it.........drumroll please......MY LONG LOST CAMERA!!!! Yup, it was there, in the navy blue NIKE backpack I used the day before we moved on our iceskating field trip. Everything was still in the bag, the bottled water, extra mittens, permission slips, excedrin, chapstick, girl scout cookies that were delivered to my classroom that I was bringing home for Kenny, and of course, my camera. Can you handle it?? We stared at the box that I found this stuff in, and neither of us could even place where we got this box. It was a shop vac box, probably from the early 80s, and we can't figure out where it came from. We looked through EVERY SINGLE BOX that was in the move 3 times between February and April for this backpack and camera, and never once did we see this box. Where did it come from? Where was it?? I'll never know. I wasn't that upset that I already purchased a new one because I got the new one for half the price of the lost camera, and since Kenny and I have the same camera, now we have three of them! All the same! It'll be helpful because he uses his more for work and now he has a backup....no worrying about the battery dying or anything like that. So it all works out.....
Here's the backpack I have missed with the camera in it.....

Finding lost treasures is always fun! I still have a few boxes that I haven't unpacked from my move a year ago. You've kicked my pants and now I feel compelled to go and see what is waiting for me!
