Goodbye Dallas!

Jaime and I have been trying to get our house in better order. In so doing, we have been using our clean sweep methods in order to simplify our lives. We recently put up more shelving in a HUGE bathroom closet that now serves as overflow for kitchen, sewing, christmas, and cleaning stuff. We are consistently reconsidering holding onto things that have no room in our lives. The great thing about giving things away to charity is that it can go to somoene else and hopefully be of more use to them than dragging us down with clutter.

So now it is time to say goodbye to my Cabbage Patch doll, Dallas. It has been a great 23 years.

*sniff* *sniff* I was touched by this post. I understand the sentimentality that can come with a beloved Cabbage Patch Kid. I think it is noble of you to part with him, Jack.

This is a little awkward for me to ask, but...are you going to at least put pants on the little guy, before sending him out into the world?

I can sympathize as I recently parted with Dinah Tracy after 20 years. (I can't believe that I can say that I've owned something for 20 years).
Don't worry Lauren, she was fully clothed including her red gingham bloomers.

We just did a clean sweep today. I can't believe Dallas didn't make the cut. But then again my Brynna Sherry didn't either.
Although I think Mom wouldn't let me give it away and gave it to Brenna.
