My next new favorite thing is not to be confused with the actual Pottery Barn chairs above, BUT, I got a chair very similar to the one on the right at the Salvation Army, brand new, for $10! It actually had an original tag still on it and was just sitting there waiting for me. I love it!
Again, not to be confused with the exact product above, but I got a Pottery Barn collage frame similar to the one above, from again...the Salvation Army...for another $10! I filled it with all the prettiest pictures of my little family (I left out the crying ones, the nose-picking ones, and the ones where Sammy is holding himself). I love it because it's so hard for me to choose just two or three pictures to put up, so this allowed me to be completely non-decisive and just put them all!
Last but not least, I'm happy that school has started. My kids only go a few mornings a week, but it's so great to have some time to get things done around here (and a social outlet for my very social 3 y/o boy)! And fall is starting and I love fall and the start of school. It just makes me want to smell pencils!
OH, I forgot, after my chilli dinner last weekend, a very kind lady brought me a set of new wine glasses as she noticed I was a little short, (I break them constantly). I'm enjoying those already! Thanks Terry.
Things I'm not enjoying:
Everyone in the family is sick (except for me). The only good thing about sickness is that I feel no guilt letting everyone watch obscene amounts of PBS.
I need my hair highlighted and cut. My roots are awful.
My house is not clean. Right now I'm busy tending to little (and big) sick people, but everytime I step over another load of laundry, I groan that my house is so yuck right now.
My husband and I had an ongoing argument all weekend, but now he's sick too and pitiful looking so I think we have to let it go. Probably for the best anyway.
All in all, though, I have much more to be thankful for than I have to whine about so I think I'll go throw in a load of laundry, bring the husband a few more Motrin, and then jump on my bike and head to the Salvation Army! Just kidding. I'll stick around and play Nurse Nancy a little while longer.
