Garage sale season is in full swing and we've done a little hunting. For fractions of the retail price I've found a high chair, summer clothes for Gabe, clothes (including 3 dresses) for Lisa, shoes, a K'Nex ferris wheel set, 2 bikes, five pieces of Pampered Chef stoneware (just $6 apiece), and more.
The best part, however, is being able to say "Yes" when the children find treasures.
"Mom, can I get this car?"
"Mom, can I get this toy?"
"Mom, can I get these cowboy boots?"
"Mom, can I...."
"Yes, yes, yes!"
It feels so good not to say the N- word!
Lisa summed it all up, "This is the first best time I've had at garage sales. You haven't been this nice ever!"
