my fun friday.

so last friday my mother-in-law watched my kids
while i took a fun day.

did i have time to take a fun day.
no...i didn't.
did i make time to take a fun day...absolutely.
should i have taken a fun day?
that is debate-able depending on who you ask. :)

i used to be a list maker.
up until about a year ago.
i used to put all kinds of things on my list,
and check them off as i got them done.
it was such a great feeling, when everything got checked off.
it was such a defeated feeling when it didn't.
i am tired of feeling defeated.

i don't know if my list got longer or i just got lazier.
(i really do know the answer...)
it's just not worth discussing.  ;) house was not in order.
the laundry was not done.
i did not have dinner in the oven before i left.
painting. ummm. no again.
so you see, i have realized that if i don't make a run for it
when the running is good.
(like talking FREE babysitter)
then i don't get to run...
so i ran...and i ran hard.

here's what i have to show for it:

(these items were all from the 50 cents rack...
except for one, which was 50% off. )

(i did get a slammin' maternity dress which i love...
i actually didn't buy it friday night because i didn't have
enough money along...i know.i know. pathetic. so i actually went
back sat. morning, and got it...even, for cheaper).

(got so much fun stuff at the favorite place to shop by far.
that's a no-brainer for sure...26 items for $22.50...

(and this ~made~ my day...for sure).

i plan to paint it black, and probably hang it in our
remodeled "upper room". if you don't know what re-modeling we've
done haven't talked to me recently. ;)

it's the old "boova" hut from matt's growing up years.
and it has a much higher calling or purpose these days. ;)
pics to follow when done...

so, what goodwill store do you go to? I would love to go sometime. just never seem to have the chance. and I am lucky, my kids get mostly hand-me-downs and I really don't have to buy much for them. love the shelf! great bargain!

Um yes I too have thrown out the "list"...and I like to think everything still gets done eventually...
and for the record you are NOT lazy.
love the shelf by the way...
