in cleaning out a few things and deciding what to get rid of, i came across an old jewelry holder thingamabob that my friend joe's parents gave to me for Christmas many years ago.

inside, i found old fall leaves from the trees that stood in the front yard of the last house that my family lived in up in washington state, back when we were living together for the last time as a 'full' family, some 10 years ago.

i almost cried.

especially because i moved away from my family, the trees were cut down, and mom went to prison.

i think i'll hang onto that container for a bit longer.

Re:
thanks :) it's weird how certain things that you've held onto for years and not even known it can come up to bite you ;)

Forgive me for not knowing the story, but why is your mom in prison, or why did she go to prison? Or was that a metaphor?

Re:
oh. heh.

my brother and i grew up in a very drug induced household, around drugs and drinking and partying and potsmoking and all that stuff. i'm definitely not condoning what she did, but she sold drugs to help suppliment her welfare income. only after i left for school, and jess started being gone a lot, did she start doing them more and more, and getting into harder stuff.

when i was 20, she was busted for selling my ex boyfriend crystal, and went to prison for 2 years or so.

she's been clean and sober for YEARS, but because she lived that lifestyle for 20+ years, she doesn't know how to function in society anymore.

Re:
it certainly makes for some REALLY entertaining stories, especially if my brother's around me!
