Consolidation

by | Sep 22, 2010 | 0 comments

Was thinking today how when you get married you consolidate your stuff.  We had two of everything at first I remember because I was 28 and you were 27.  Two stereos, two computers.  We consolidated.   One.

Now that you’re gone, I have two of everything again.  Two toothbrushes, two cases with contact lenses- one labeled “Dan’s” and one labeled “Julia’s,” two desks and chairs,  two file cabinets, two sets of house keys.  Two.
