This was my fortune when we ordered Chinese Friday night, "Opportunity is knocking on your door. Answer it tomorrow". I was so excited to see that fortune in my cookie, I almost jumped up and down. Could you ask for a better fortune on the eve of National Garage Sale Day?
Despite travelling far and wide, despite going to all the "right" neighborhoods where there are little old houses with little old ladies hoarding fabulous junk, this is all I bought. A giant Easter egg. (Well, really it is a vintage German candy container.) Giant I tell you. Jack can barely hold onto the thing, which is bigger than a watermelon.
Don't get me wrong, it is a way cool treasure. Even when I factor in the $16 I spent in gas driving far and wide. These are the kinds of things I dream about when surfing Ebay. And even though it was nearly 10 am when I got to the sale and there were a zillion people milling about, there it was, waiting for me.
The inside says Made in Western Germany.
I imagine the kid who received this totally gorged themselves on chocolate. LOL
Oh, I picked up a small handful of old fabric scraps too.
So I figured all the goods would be waiting for me at the flea on Sunday. I haven't been in weeks, there has to be stuff right?
I bought a roll of carnival tickets and nothing more. LOL I needed them though. I've decided we are going to have a big carnival birthday party for Jack this year.
Ah well. You win some, you lose some.
P.S. I finished the steroids (which make me not only VERY VERY VERY angry but very weak and generally discombobulated) on Saturday. By Sunday I was up all.night.long itching. Monday? Face and throat swelling again. Back to the doctor, back on the steroids. I am total wreck at the moment and have had to hire out the neighbor girl to help look after Jack. (Even though she is rather unreliable, right now she is more reliable than me. Scary.) Doctor says there is very little they can do for me other than what we are already doing. Yipppeee. If things are quiet, that's why. My child needs a quite attentive mother, and things quickly go to hell when I am ill.
Cross your fingers this passes soon.
