I know most bloggers don't post on the weekends but that is my best time.
I got nothing done today.
I got up and worked the band garage sale from 10-1:30 or so.
I am just disgusted by some of the people that are garage sale 'regulars'.
They will talk you down from the lowest prices ever and then some of them even pocketed things from some of the tables.
This was a fund raiser for the May trip for the band kids.
The items were labeled according to who was selling what and the money for each child went into their personal trip account.
They were essentially stealing from children!
I found some very nice wooden chairs with cushions.
They were $5 apiece and I left thinking that I really wanted them to refinish and get the cushions re-upholstered.
I went to the restaurant to have lunch with Mr. Funny and told him I was going to buy them.
When I got home, I called one of the mom's to let her know Mr. would be by to pick up the chairs.
They were sold. Rats!
Mr. Funny came home and mowed the lawn and when he knocked on the back door, I peeked out to see him holding a (gasp!) snake!
Only a garter (garder, gardener?) snake but it had a huge tummy which was probably a mouse.
I don't care, there is no good snake in my world.
He put it back in the yard where I am sure it will find it's way to me eventually and I will have to chop it in half with a shovel.
We had our normal Saturday date night but this time I decided to have a few drinks instead of a big dinner.
We went to our friends' Mexican place and had some nice conversation (meaning us complaining about how much our employees were driving us crazy) and then an appetizer.
I am glad that we all have the same problems hiring good help.
I need to go to bed now.
I am going to start the previous season of Weeds (I think 4?) so I can catch up.
Work is going to be great.
Another day of me trying to be positive and happy while the rest of the people try to rain on my picnic.
Either way, I am going to grin and bear it!
I am glad you enjoyed my blast from the past.
My dress and hair thank you.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
