The things we shred

So, where I work we have not cleaned out our lost and found in a long time. This came to my attention today when one of the security officers approached me because the lost and found is stinking up their office with all of the dirty clothes. We have now donated bags and bags and bags of clothes and misc. items to goodwill. But, what about the personal items? Well, I spent the morning shredding any items with personal information; credit cards, id's, library cards, ss cards and among other things temple recommends.
To be honest, it took me awhile to figure out what they were, I had never seen one before. But, I shredded 6 temple recommends today. What does this mean? Can they get a new one? Will I go to hell for shredding them? I don't know the answer to any of this, but I found it amusing the things people leave behind. I am a forgetful person and have had my purse stolen, but to only loose your ss card or temple recommend truly confuses me... I mean it's easy to misplace your credit card, id ect because you are using them in the shopping center, but these other items how did they make their way out of your wallet or home in the first place?
I wish I could find each one the these people and return their items to them personally, but hopefully they know somehow that I have shredded them and their personal information is now safe! And, we have new policies on how often we will be cleaning out our lost and found.

PS I know the retro background is ugly, I will be changing it soon. :)

ICHI is here.. :)

On January 13, 2013 at 8:06pm a beautiful baby girl, Remany Bryer DeVaney entered the world. She weighed in at 5lbs 2ounces and 17" long! Mommy (Alesia) and Daddy (Chris) are doing great!
"Ichi" has been what I have called her since the day my brother called to tell me they were going to have a baby. In case you didn't know ichi means one (1) in Japanese, and this fits her because on both side of her family she is the first grandchild. Which makes her my 1st niece on my side of the family and #36 on my total of nieces/nephews. :)
Ichi is such a doll, and I look forward to our life together! We all have so many ideas of what she will be, what hobbies she might like and who will be her favorite (that answer is clearly me.. although others might disagree!). Ultimately though everyone in her life all just want what is best for her. To grow up to be whatever "SHE" wants to be, and whatever that is.. well she has a huge support system, that will do whatever it takes to help her succeed.
Now for the part I know you all have been waiting for.. PICTURES :)
