It's truly an atrocity. I get a little choked up just thinking about it...
But do you know what totally, completely, without reservation super wonderful thing makes up for any of the sorrow that resulted from having that realization? The amazing stuff we bought for truly fantastically low prices that made this bargain hunter and her cheap offspring swoon with delight, of course!
Sadly, it is 1:28 a.m. as I type this and I am totally incapable of taking photographs of any of our finds at the moment (due to laziness. And poor lighting). Plus, one of them is SO GOOD that he deserves his very own post. Oh yes he does! He is like, the find of the century. And we NEEDED him, we did we did we did. So you'll have to wait until tomorrow/later today, depending on your time zone.
And so this post is about something other than my parental shortcomings, I will tell you all about my second most favorite find of the day which is...
Sorry I'm yelling so much tonight. Or this morning. It's the only way I can stay awake. Because have I mentioned that we went on a wacky thrift store shopping spree today? And that I got a bread machine, made in the U.S. of A, for six dollars? And that the den is still not fully painted even though I paint every single day? And that the alphabet mat we started 783 years ago is also still not finished? Because I'm a project starter and not a project finisher and also Adobe Acrobat won't work on my computer? Which has nothing to do with any of this except I'm sure it's contributing to me feeling so exhausted and "writing" at 2 a.m.? Have I mentioned any of that yet?
And if you still read this blog after being subjected to that drivel, I thank you with the exuberance of a small boy in a toy car store. A small boy who needs a nap badly because it is almost 2 a.m. (depending on your timezone) and he/me needs to crawl into bed for 4 hours before children start waking up.
I am getting too old to function on 4 hours of sleep, I tell ya what.
