My uncluttered post struck a nerve with all y'all - truth be told, I only need a spading fork, a hand rake, and dirt to make me happy. We own way too much.
The Simple Dollar had a great review of a book - You're 50, Now What? and I was super-conscientious about buying anything at yard sales today but when one finds Sarah a bread machine for $2.50 by Welbilt, one's gotta go for it. CW got a bed-in-a-bag UGA set for $10 and I spent $5 on three new lamps for us to replace those that have been casualties of rages and killed in action.
Daniel is on his way over to go swimming with us, Monica's taking my teen girls to her house for a Girl's Afternoon Out and my house looks better than it did yesterday.
Sarah wrote a great post even if she skewered me good making me bust out laughing with her assessment of my choices over the years. Nailed me good.
I spent a quarter for a hardback book for me - Common Sense Leadership and ran into a ton of folks I know such as Tina who was literally holding the hand of her most recent runaway teen. I'd heard a racket up the hill and feared my kids were acting up, glad to find out it was her kids playing on the nearby playground.
