Every time I went into the garage I would hear whimpering and sniffling. I knew what it was but had to ignore it. My heart was breaking! How long would this go on? Am I really that cold hearted? Well...
I recently bought a beautiful little hutch from a friend who's wife died last year. It's very sad, but I did not know this woman. I see her husband still mourning his loss. One day he mentioned the hutch and asked if I was interested. Was I ever!! It wasn't exactly what I had been looking for but it's so lovely I had to buy it.
Now, a few of you may know that I "used" to collect teddy bears. I guess, in reality, I still do. I just haven't invested in any bears for years. In fact, since moving to Oregon and marrying DH, very few of my bears have been visible.
Well, that's about to change!!! No, no, I'm not un-marrying DH. And I'm not leaving Oregon (yet).
This where my new hutch comes in. I cleaned and polished to my heart's delight. Then I went to the garage, brought out a ladder, and box by box brought all of my bears into the house. No more whimpering and sniffling! Only tears of joy and laughter! What a glorious reunion it was!! So many bear hugs! For one day I had the party of a lifetime. It was very difficult to choose. I think I chose well. Now my bears can watch me work at my desk/computer and we can chat whenever we like. Soooo, ladies and gentlemen, please meet the bears... TOP SHELF
Now the sad and unfortunate part of this story is that I had to place four 3sq.ft. boxes of bears back into storage that night. We talked at length about all the fussing they were making every time I entered the garage. An agreemant has been made that I will bring them all out for an annual party. Sounds like fun to me!
