Garage sale time!

This is going to be a venting post, I think.
The girls and I go to yard sales just about every Saturday. It's fun for them to have money (usually dimes, nickels and quarters) and buy something valuable! Like they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure! So this morning we got up around 7 (which is really hard for me to do, knowing I don't have to work!) and left the house by 8. Clancy works every Saturday, so he has to miss out on these adventures, which I am sure break his heart. (Yeah, right)
But I have to complain about some people holding yard sales. They drive me nutso. DON'T ask me if I am looking for anything in particular, or if I need help. It's just a garage sale!!! Not a store! If I am looking for something in particular, I will ask!!!! I hate it when people are all in your face "look at this, and look at this" Let me look around lady!!! I'm not interested in your great grandmother's maternity clothes, thanks.
Maybe I'm just a cranky head this morning. Oh well.

I need to have a yard sale of my own...anyone in Spokane want to get together and do one together?

I did happen to find some great maternity clothing at one sale, though. That made my day! I also couldn't pass up so super cute baby boy outfits. I know, I know! I shouldn't be buying boy items until I know the gender, but I can't help it! My gut says boy. Which reminds me....
Have you ever heard of this??It's called an Intelligender test. I found it at WalGreen's after reading about some mom's over at using it. I just thought it would be fun! Basically, based on your urine, this mixture will turn either green, which means boy, or yellow/orange (or no change) which means girl. So we bought it Thursday, took it Friday morning and it was green, BOY! I'm not about to finish decorating the nursery (which I need to be painting the trim now....) based on it! We will find out for sure what we are expecting on the 20th. Let's hope it's correct, though!

Gracie is really interested in how the baby is going to come out. I just tell her that I will go to the doctor and he will take the baby out. It was a mistake to let her watch "A Baby Story" on TLC with me once. She saw a woman breast feeding and asked what she was doing, so I explained that mommies have milk in there to feed their babies, because babies don't have teeth. Now she's convinced that one side has milk and the other has chocolate milk. She cracks me up!

Well both girls are sleeping so it's time for me to start painting the trim in the babies room. I want everything perfect in time for the little one, even though I still have 22 1/2 weeks. Haha!

  1. I love love love garage sales, only if I have my space. I will ask if I need help or have a specific request. As for a boy, I hope that's true. It's so fun. I love boys.
