My best friend happened to read my post from Friday (that she even had time to look at it is amazing, she has her hands full right now with some parent health problems). So while I was out shopping Sunday I get a phone call. She just happens to have a set of almost never used pots and pans - do I want them for Adam and Holly's apartment! YES!!!! I had been dragging my feet on that one. Even the cheap pans are expensive. Heck she brought them over Sunday night before she left for Florida again to take care of her parents and hello, I think they are nicer than my pots and pans! I was so, so, thankful! Especially after shopping all day Thursday with Adam, Saturday with Holly and then Sunday with Jenna and Emily. And tucked away in the box was also a new toaster! So guess what! The toaster I bought (still in the box) is going back to the store! Wooo Hooo!!!!
In a similar vein, my husband has been cranky, cranky, cranky over 2 out of state tuitions, apartment rent, and the general back to school costs! And then about a week or two ago he promised Holly and Adam a car that they could take down to school to use for grocery shopping and getting to campus (their apartment is off campus). But he did not promise them what kind of car, how old or what it would look like. So all weekend long I listened to him complain about buying a car. I was miserable. So today at about 11:30am I get a call from him. "He is test driving a car for them." He wants to know if silver is ok for color, with a grey inerior. I told him what difference does it make to me - Holly will be driving it. So then he springs - "Well Holly says it is ok, I may buy it, but will probably wait another day or 2" (Just so you don't think he is impulsive, he has been thinking about this car for weeks, just never went to look at it in person or drive it). Well guess what, I come home from work tonight and here sits a new car (well new to us). Geez. That darn car is way nicer than my car! It is a 2005 Taurus with only about 20,000 miles. My car is a '98 and 120,000 miles. I tried to take the car and give the kids the van, but no go! Humpgh!
I told Finn I would dig out this picture from our guilds program this month - "Hats off to Quilting". Her Red, cream and black quilt reminded me of these two. The other pictures are also from the show since I've been way too busy to sew anything myself! :) Aren't they great quilts! Kay and Kay from the quilt retreat I went to a few weeks ago do this program and it is so funny! And they have such fun quilts to show and tell!
