Well, I think I have procrastinated long enough. Maybe....I have been really busy and the blog was the last thing on my mind.

I have been yard sale-ing and picked up this HUGE batch of three big tubs of Playmobil pieces. So far I have found a house, a post office, a grocery store, a fort of some kind, a motorcycle shop, a small castle, a fire ladder truck, a rescue helicopter and lots of small pieces. I didn't know that you could go on line to Playmobil and print out the assembly instructions.  Now, I really have a project!!

First, our "houseguest" nephew decided after three short months that he needed to move! So we accomplished that with lots of trips upstairs and back aches and knees refusing to take another step.

Second, the sweet grand daughters came for a visit for several days. What to do with all of that inventory clogging up everywhere? Oh, look I have an empty room UPSTAIRS....more aching backs and knees. But it was worth all of the work to have a 6 and 7 year old in the house. Who needs sleep? and no you can't have hot dogs for every meal with an ice cream chaser, well at least not for breakfast.

Third, when my daughter came to pick up the girls their big brother decided to stay for a few days so SweetiePie Grandpa could teach him to drive a manual transmission. What???you are still a baby and babies don't drive.
He volunteered to take me thrifting so he could drive. But the big thrift store involved getting on the interstate bypass and I didn't think he was ready for that, so I did the driving and we went over friction points and the like. Grandpa did take him in his little car and he did really good. Today he drove my car and did great. He has the hang of the gears and just needs practice. Oh, not my baby!! driving.

Fourth, now I have a bigger room upstairs to fit all of my ebay inventory into. Now, I have to haul all of that crap inventory up the stairs.

Where did I put that Ben-Gay? I wonder if I could thrift a hot tub and get all of the icky stuff out of it so I could actually use it? (probably not!!)


  1. Hey, you can find anything on Craigslist, and enough bleach will kill whatever ails it. It's always worth a try. Go for it!

    Busy lady. Glad you could still get some cool stuff!

  2. For now, we have a membership at the Y and they have a steam room....ahhhhhhh
