It's Opening Day of Thrift Shop Hunting

It's Spring!  It's Spring!  No more Snow Days!  No more being cooped up in the house, forcing everyone to sew and bake and read!  No more Monopoly!  No more Poker!  No, wait.  We're Baptists...we wouldn't teach our kids to play poker.

*whistling casually*

Yesterday I went thrift store shopping, which I just have to say, makes this girl giddy with happiness.  Especially when it's 5 for $5 day at The Salvation Army.  Now I'm not braggin or anything (yes, I am) but not only did I stock the girl's dresser with cutie summer clothes, but it's even gotten to the point that my boys, all of whom are OBSESSED with fashion, look forward to seeing what I pick out for them.  They pounced on my pile of $1 shorts and shirts with glee.  Even He Who Has No Blog Name - who didn't get anything because the guy has more clothes than a department store - picked through the pile and then asked me,

"This Goodwill place...can I come next time?"

Patience, grasshopper, patience.  You're can't handle The Goodwill!  Train you, I will.

Speaking of new clothes though, my firstborn baby girl woke up the other morning and presto chango, her feet had grown 21/2 sizes.

I would blog more but I have to go sob myself into oblivion now.

The only thing that make me feel better is if someone bumps up my followers list to an even 80.  I'm just sayin'.


  1. now you are using the 'just sayin' line????

  2. no more crying over your girls growing up. You'd be even sadder if they didn't. :) Besides, the sooner they grow up and get married, the sooner you have grandbabies to love on, right . . . uh-oh . . . I just crossed the line of time travel; we should never think THAT far ahead. In fact, I'm kinda looking forward to an empty nest for a bit.

  3. Aww! That reminds me of Saver's where we discovered we were both Hobbits!

  4. Andy - NOW I'm using it or now I'M using it? What are you asking?

    Lorna - hey, I'll cry if I want to!! although it is kinda cool that I can now borrow HER shoes...

    Heather, awwww, how I miss Savers!


  5. Just call me 80 :>

  6. Why, thank you, my little anonymous #80!
