Here is my story and I'm sticking to it!!! Sat. morning came Connie is
building a wall (that is her story, when she is ready to share) so I am
once again on my own. There is an Estate sale down the road, 8 rooms in
a historic home, same family since it was built in the 1800's. Well you
know I have to go, BUT!!!! I am mad at my husband, we will not go
there. ( U know what I mean). He knows I am mad too!!!
So after getting showered, dressed, and walked ( ME) the dog, He says " How about we go out for breakfast???".
So I throw in, well ok, if we can stop by this Estate sale on the
way.( P.S. I am driving so he really has no choice.) So he agrees (If
wife is not happy, NO ONE else is either)
Well, we stop. Prices are way toooooo high. Nice things BUT!!! I saw an antique vanity, just wanted it so bad FOR Tami's room. (matches her bed!!! how often does that happen? And in perfect condition) The lady wanted $75. I just could not do it. So we left with a beaming smile on husband's face. Nothing bought. Boy, was he WRONG!!
we went home, tackled the yard work, and Sunday I waited to 1/2 hour
before the Estate sale was over. Drove back got the vanity for $25. HA
HA HA, I scored and brought it home. I pulled in the drive way, opened
the back of my car, started to unload the 3 pane mirror, my husband
lets out the dog, I turned, mirror in hand, dog under foot, trip, mirror
goes flying across driveway, and smashes to smithereens, and I broke
every nail on both hands trying to catch the damn thing!!!
God, I had a mirror in the barn that will fill in, and only you know it
is not the real deal. So that is my story, and I am sticking to IT!
