There is a certain church not too far fom my house that has a Rummage Sale once a year. The only way they "advertise" it is to put RUMMAGE SALE on the marquee. Unless you look for it - you won't see it. Consequently, the junk is always plentiful and the customers are sparse. I drive by this particular Church about five times a week and every single time I drive past it, I look at the marquee to see if it says those magical words. Guess what it said yesterday? RUMMAGE SALE - THURSDAY. My heart leapt into my throat and then I rmembered something. Guess who scheduled for her car to be serviced Thursday and will be car-less all day????? *sigh* I will just tell myself it is just Granny dresses, crusty Tupperware and Happy Meal toys this year.
To my Egg Swappers - the eggs are almost all here - I am waiting on two more but they should be here tomorrow or Friday. I should be geting the eggs out on Monday. The ones that have come in are great - such creativity this year!
A full service Bakery opened literally within feet of my house this week. It is one of those upscale places that makes specialty cakes, fancy pastries and artisan breads. The very idea that there are cases of buttercream iced cupcakes and lobster tails and other delcious delights this.close -well, it is about to kill me. I haven't gone yet and I am trying to show discipline, but if we don't support our local businesses, it might fail. It is my civic DUTY to buy cinnamon rolls....right?
The Bean had his State Homeschool Testing yesterday. I remember back when I was first aware of people that homeschooled. Those kids had a certain lifestyle and a certain look to them - mostly do to religious beliefs or income restrictions. The kids I saw yesterday looked like every other high school kid in the USA. In fact, the kid that sat next to The Bean had about 85% of his hair dyed blue. It's nice to see that kids of all sorts are homeschooled now. I never, ever thought we would have a homeschooled kiddo, but we do. Now, in the words of Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that." This is not a homeschool blog - I was just happy to see that all the kids looked like normal regular kids. Which they are!
I'm off to watch Extreme Couponers. I was proud of myself today that I saved $25.00 in coupons. But, I will NEVER buy 400 boxes of pasta or 250 jars of Pata Sauce!
