This would be fine if I was sentimental about normal things.
But I'm not.
Things I think most women get sentimental about and maybe I should try being sentimental about.

~old baby clothes their kids wore

**Songs that remind them of the good old days**
this van was huge! So many memories! Vacations. Carpools. Volleyball tourneys. Watching movies (it had a huge TV on the floor-not like the wimpy TVs that swing down from the ceiling now a days). One time I took all the seats out of it and filled it with Crispy Cremes (for a fund raiser). Thousands of Crispy Cremes. I have pictures. All I can say is you're lucky my scanner isn't hooked up yet.
Okay, I'll stop. I could go on and on (maybe I already have). No just one more.
So pretty! Sigh.
Definitely feeling all drippy now. So I'd like to share this.
Ode to my beloved van
Dear Sweet Van.
you were a great van.
words cannot express how much you meant to me.
all that you put up with
kids kicking your seats, ripping out the tabs on your cup holders, drawing with ink pen on your ceiling, vomiting on your carpet...boogers smeared on the seats
you never gave up on us
well maybe a couple times like on the way home from school with a van load of kids and your fuel pump died and Lori had to come and rescue me
but that's okay. I know you didn't mean it
we all have parts that are giving out on us
I'm sorry my mean husband made me sell you
I dread to think of how you are being taken care of now
That guy that bought you looked a little suspicious to me
I'm sure he isn't loving you like I did
keeping you clean and tidy like I did
Please forgive me for letting you go
I know kinda chokes you up ehh?
The saddest part?
When I started writing this morning I meant to blog about my feelings for this...
please promise me you'll come back.
