babe, u were right

I will repeat that. Aaron, you were right. It’s not often I get to utter those words so I will let you bask in the glory of it today. he he he. 

It took awhile for Aaron to convince me of a round rug for our living room. I had my heart set on a plush beige shag rug, but with 3 kids and a dog. . .beige not so good. I found this 8 foot round rug at Anthropology, and it was on sale. Even better. And I have to say, I love it. I think the round totally changes the space. Good job, babe. Let me say it again, U WERE RIGHT.

Here’s a view from the top. Sorry for the sloppy picture, I was too lazy to change my lens.

This weekend we enjoyed a Saturday afternoon and evening of absolutely nothing planned, with no errands to run, no groceries to buy, just an afternoon to play and get things around the house done. So I used my time to do a major Craigs List extravaganza. Okay, not major. But 4 things I have been meaning to photograph and list are finally done. I sold 2 things right away and one hopefully will be sold and picked up today, and another one left to sell. It cracks me up that some people try to lie, as if I don’t know how much I listed a stroller for. I had an old Maclaren that I listed for $70, when she got here she commented on how I must have spiders in my garage. Um, yes. Doesn’t everyone’s garage have spiders in them? And the stroller isn’t new lady, I already told you and photographed it really well to show the wear. Then she weasled me out of $10 because I didn’t have the carrying strap. Then she handed me a $50 bill. Um, I listed it for $70. So that would mean you owe me $60. She had the printout of the listing supposedly in her car and when she returned she handed me another $10. Crazy people. This is one of the reasons I despise garage sales. I love ebay, Craigs List I can manage, hate garage sales. 

It was kinda sad that Greta cried when she saw her rocking horse being carried to another person’s car. It has been in our house for a year, and after the first week, you never looked at it again. Oh wait, occasionally you would lean your sippy cup on it while watching the latest Miss Spider episode. And now you miss it? Of course.
