We interrupt this regularly scheduled bloggy break to bring you important garage sale fodder news.
Butterfly print: $5
Bench to be recovered and repainted: $2
Chairs also to be recovered: $1 each (yeah, I said ONE DOLLAR)
Having someone give your Baby Girl a purse because "She's the cutest tiny little thing I've ever seen!" and another woman at a different sale give her a beach ball because "SHE'S A DOLL!!!": priceless
Baby Girl sure knows how to work the cuteness factor. It's fun to take her out with me.

Just a little cleaning update, I got the master closet dejunked and cleaned out. I made curtains for the master bathroom, I do have a kitchen and the children are wearing clean clothes. It's amazing what can be accomplished when I don't sit in front of the computer so much. I'm afraid my break isn't over yet... which means I still won't be visiting blogs just yet. Sorry, but I still haven't touched this computer desk. And I've got a hundred other things to get done this week. I'll be back soon. I'll probably post again tomorrow to tell you about the rodeo! It's tonight! Enjoy your day!

You're my hero, Melissa! I'm trying to break the bloggy stranglehold. I'm trying with all my might but like Chicago sang, 'It's A Hard Habit To Break.'
