Short and sweet

After the second half of my root canal yesterday, I went to the thrift store, purely for entertainment purposes. I didn't even grab a cart, because, after all, I don't need anything. True to form, withing a half hour my arms were overflowing and I had to grab an abandoned cart. What a score! I found a Land of Nod crib set for baby, darling and perfect and just what I needed, for $9. I stumbled across a lovely pair of baby shoes that I could tell were very well made, but wouldn't fit her until she was about 2. But, since they were only $3, it would be worth not passing them up. Then, I found a large cotton canopy that hangs from the ceiling, made of cotton with cloth butterflies stitched all over it. This thing is huge, and perfect for our basement/playroom for a special area just for my little girls. Again, this was $9. Come to find out, the crib set retails for $218, the shoes (pom d'Api, which meant nothing to me until I Googled it) retail for $136, and the canopy, from the Company Store around $100. Feeling pretty good about myself right about now!!

School is gearing up this week to the full schedule. Being that it is a four day week, I think we'll do fine, maybe even enjoy ourselves a little bit.

Blessings
