The Yard Sale
Saturday, May 07, 2011
Ok, so today was supposed to be our yard sale day. It went well, we sold $5 between my sister and I. I think I spent more making the signs! Oh, well, we're going to try again in a couple of weeks. I was just trying to make some money to take with us to Sea World. Our Brownie Girl Scouts did such a good job selling cookies that we're going to take them all to Sea World. Their parents and siblings are coming along, as well, but they are paying their own way. We got a deal for $25 a head, plus either $15 or $29 (depending on age) for food for the entire day. The only catch is that we have to take a class on Marine Mammals! LOL All the kids love animals, so it's no big deal :D
After the yard sale was over, my sister took my middle daughter and she's spending the night with cousins close to her age (same grade in school). The other two are going to my mom's tonight, so we're going to be kidless! DH's on call, but his phone has been relatively quiet so far. But, it's only one in the afternoon, so we'll see. Maybe we can have some "us" time?
Anyway, I'm off here. Just wanted to jot a couple of things down before I went off to clean the house, again. Oh, didn't mean to forget to mention, I'm down 3 pounds this week! Yay, me! Yesterday, my boss treated the mom's at the office to Starbucks, and they didn't exactly get my order right. Instead of the less than 300 calorie drink I ordered, I got a 400+ drink. Yikes! Went over the calories yesterday, though not by much. Oh, well, it was good, and it's not like I'm going to be drinking it daily. Mocha Coconut Frappuccino, Grande. Was supposed to be Mocha Coconut Lite Frappuccino, Tall, Nonfat milk, no whip cream. It was soooo goooood, though. Too bad they don't have decaf! LOL
