So sorry for the pity party yesterday. Enough.
I have these 2 shoeboxes on the very top shelf in our closet and they are filled with memories of me and jason. I'll give you a peek inside.
Contents of the boxes:
List of story ideas for a series of children's books that I want to eventually write...might be in another lifetime but it will happen.
A gift certificate for "Jason and Shannon Gowdell" to the Island Inn in Sanibel Island, Florida...my parents gave us a minivacation there as a Christmas gift in 2001. We had a great time there.
A class picture from my first year teaching (the class from hell, but not as bad as the following year), the same year we were married. I had long hair and the dog chewed up the picture on the bottom corner.
picture of the first volleyball team I coached, also chewed.
ticket stub from the Orlando Magic vs. Detroit Pistons 12-28-01. That was my Christmas gift to jason that year.
receipts from the tuxedos rented for our wedding
other various ticket stubs - nelly furtado (3-16-02) FSUvs. NC State (11-10-01) James Taylor (6-1-01) Brevard Manatees vs. Fort Myers Miracle (6-23-01)
brochures, maps, receipts, itineraries from our honeymoon to Costa Rica
various forms of birth control that my MOM bought for me for our honeymoon because I had just started the "pill" and wasn't sure that it would be effective. Really. Gross.
2 pairs of sunglasses, one with no lenses
some "love dice" that you roll and it comes up with stupid things for you to do, let's try it - Roll #1 Fast and furious smooch, Roll #2 wrestle massage, Roll #3 hugs now. Lame
And 2 cards that I gave Jason for halloween, don't know when but I'm guessing it was before children. Written inside the cards - "I love you and I hope you have a fun Satan's Day" and "Eventhough you hate me...I love you"
