And happy March.
And by the way...March? Really!?
I can't quite grasp the fact that we just have three months left of this school year...that's all.
No fancy pictures of me drinking coffee this morning.
You can find me in my robe watching movies with my boy today, he is home sick for the
second day now. Yuuuuck.
And yes, that is what my hair really looks like in the morning, it's not pretty.
But anyway--sit right down to your computer, cause you don't wanna come here and get sick,
or watch Dolphin Tale with us, and let me tell you all about my new purchases.
So, if we were REALLY meeting for coffee this morning.....
I would have to tell you all about The Auction on Saturday.
That would be The Auction that I was not actually even able to go to but still got some really
great things from thanks to my cousin.
So, here's what happened....
Friday when I went to pick Wyatt up from school, I noticed a whole bunch of tables and chairs
and pianos sitting outside the old now-closed-down elementary school next door to Wyatt's school.
It is up on a hill so I couldn't get too good of a look though, so I go home and start making phone
calls. I used to work for the school district myself so I knew where to start calling and finally
reached someone who told me they were auctioning off the contents of the school.
I went up there and took pictures of just some of the things I was dreaming of...
Can you even stand it? Or do you just see a pile of junk?
Because I do not see a pile of junk at all, it might be a little
stuff makes me.
But, it was Saturday morning.
And if you missed this post, I could not make it Saturday morning, it was right at the same
time as the funeral.
So I called my cousin that lives about an hour away and asked if she could be here the
next morning at 9:30. And....she could.
I was dying over the wooden card catalog in the middle but sadly I did not get it and it almost
makes me sick to tell you how much it went for.....$20. That's just one zero after the two, guys.
*Here's what I did get for about $49 total though:
4 small kid's chairs in those 70's colors above(but without that weird cushion thing)
One preschool-style cubbie with four hooks in it, room for shoes, storage, etc.
A huge chalkboard on a wooden stand--that flips from front to back, maybe 5x3
The maps! I finally have a couple of pull-down maps...
for under $10 each. UNDER $10 each. This makes me beyond happy.
These pictures are no good really. but you get the idea.
I will post pictures of everything when I have them hung/where they will go.
If I can today I need to make room for my huge chalkboard down in the playroom so Eric
can get it down there tonight.
Charlotte is so excited and can't wait to play school with it.
Have you ever been to an auction?
Do you think they are fun? Intimidating? I think I might have a new
Well, sorry I kind of dominated our coffee talk this morning with all of my auction talk.
Tell me what is going on with you today....I am listening.
And a happy Tuesday to you.
