Everyone knows when you move in the military, everything is numbered with those dreadful stickies. They come in different colors . I don’t quite remember every color I have had but I do know my last two moves I had blue and yellow.
Last night as I was cleaning up my laundry room prepping for the new year I came across one near the knobs of my washing machine.
I debated on removing it but in my weird mind I decided against it because it told a story. That sticker wasn’t from my last move here to the Fort Bragg area but in fact was from our move to Hawaii. The Bragg sticker was apparently removed. It’s amazing how something so small can really hold a lot of memories and make you think of a time in the past.
I literally thought about how that washer had traveled on a boat across the Pacific or maybe by plane …but I am pretty sure by boat. I think we move so much that I almost start to think of my household items as people. They move just as much as we do , if not more. Or could it be I am a weirdo and over think things lol?
Over the years I have come across stickies under my couch, on dressers and elsewhere. Sometimes I have removed them and other times I have let them linger because they are hard to part with (IMO).
Do you keep your PCS stickies on some of your household goods and why?
