We can't take it with us...

And so, again, we're starting to purge stuff from our lives.

But here's the thing...

You people can't be all po'd when you see stuff you bought us at a garage sale. It doesn't mean we didn't like it or that we don't like you.

It means we can't take it with us.

So-- again, I will throw this out there-- you need to speak now or forever hold your peace.

And also, just because you bought something for us as a gift doesn't automatically mean you can just have it back. We need to replace all our stuff once we're in Haiti. So if someone wants to buy it from us, we might lean that way unless (of course) it has sentimental value. And then we can talk.

But really, we're not all that worried, because mostly we just have junk that I don't think anyone will really want.

And let me say this-- I have some REALLY cool Haitian stuff that I have collected over the years that I am going to sell-- probably on ebay. So all you adoptive parents-- remember-- this might just be a chance to own something AUTHENTIC from your child's birth country. :) More to come!

And PS- Gretchen-- I already know about you and the green couch-- it's yours don't worry.
