There is only one time I ever regret the no kids for me thing, and that’s when I see a cute little dress that I know my sweet little blond haired angel girl would look beautiful in. Oh, and of the record, even I didn’t make it through that last bit with out laughing, everyone knows SWEET probably wouldn’t be the word to describe any child real or imaginary, of mine.
Let’s be honest, if I put that on my Monte he’d rip through it in seconds, but seriously, he’d look adorable in it. It’s a gorgeous dress, and I had to buy it, it was only $5! Luckily, my cousin in Germany is expecting a girl so off to Germany this dress goes. Like me I’m not sure sweet is a word that would describe any of the women in my family, maybe sassy or saucy. Perhaps even bold or brazen – and that’s okay, she’s still going to look beautiful.
Yes, we were out thrift shopping and garage sale-ing today. And I have to say I saw the world’s ugliest lamp. Seriously, it was way more heinous than anything I have ever brought home. How ugly was it? Let’s just say my Mom saw it and said “Marika, no… no… no…” It was also only $8 … it was ceramic white with green grapes on it, and since the other hideous lamps I have are glass, it wasn’t hitting that happy spot for me, other than I got to listen to my Mom’s stomach churn a little before I told her that it was a no go. I wish I had my camera with me, you’d have to agree that there are some lamps too ugly for the little bordello in the big woods.
I did get these though. For a mere $1.50 I got a stack of postcards to use on the cards I’ve been making. Most of them were blank, but there were a few that were written on and there were some letters too. I had a great time reading about how Anita’s stumble on the slopes RUINED everyone’s week because they had been planning to rent a little place on Pizmo. Seriously, the “Anita ruined Pizmo” thing was mentioned in three letters from different people. Damn Anita, way to ruin the fun! I should mention that Buck was pretty happy, he and John were going to finally going to go to Mexico for the weekend like they’ve been wanting to. I think Buck and John might’ve set Anita up, she took “the fall” for the cancelled Pizmo trip. SNORT SNORT.
When we got to my parents house we each got a little bit of watermelon, including Mighty Mont.
I think it’s safe to say spring is here.
