Day 33- Buyer's Remorse

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and I'm not a meteorologist or even someone who can spell meteorologist, but if these aren't record highs I don't know what is. 70 degrees, in Alaska, in May!? Too bad my whole house smells like a campfire since my neighbors were oh so kind enough to put their burn barrel right on the edge of my property and all my windows were open while I was gone for most of the day.

The Senorita, the kids and I spent the day garage sale hopping and buying more crap I don't need, mostly for the kids. It all seemed to be a good idea at the time, and I had no problem saying no to most of the suggested purchases like the iguana tank and tiny hooker boots. I got home and layed out all my purchases, because I'm a freak who feels the need to disinfect everything I buy at a yard sale. As I was cleaning everything I started to wonder why the heck I felt I needed 8 Mickey Mouse books. Little Man loves Mickey Mouse, but he loved him enough this morning before he had 8 new books. Why didn't I just buy one of the books? Where the heck am I going to put all the books? I think I failed garage saleing 101! I also failed spelling saleing (saling? sailing? sale-ing?)...

I did however find a Shelf Reliance Cansolidator for my pantry, and I think the lady may have thought I was a bit nuts when I admitted to dreaming about owning a Cansolidator at night. They're normally $45, and the shipping to Alaska is almost as much. I found it for SIX BUCKS, baby! Yeah!


It was dusty and dirty and has some kind of tomato paste accident, but it wiped up brand new, and I'm hoping to use it halfway soon when I reorganize my pantry and cross that off my someday list.

All in all today was a good day, even though I could barely walk from shredding it this morning and last night. I did watch the previews in bed and possibly some of the warm up, but I did level 2 so that should make up for it. I've actually accomplished quite a bit today, and I even showered! Now if only I had something planned for dinner...
