Super Saturday.

Why was my Saturday Super? well because I went out for a run and found out that it was a neighborhood garage sale day in my neighborhood. I only went 4 miles but hit 18 garage sales! Another two of my worlds collide - running and garage sales - this is the perfect combination! Woo hoo. It was so fun. One lady who I had met at a garage sale last September, whom I have not seen since, said to me, did you run the marathon? I was thrilled to tell her yes. She invited me in her home and I got a bit of fresh air before I went out for more running and shopping.
I didn't have any money with me and the $10 bike and tennis rackets were gone when I went back with money and a car, but the girl selling ALL of her Littlest Pet shop gear sold us all almost everything she had. This whole jar of guys (about 70) for $15.00. The kids are in heaven!

That sounds like the best run ever- oh man! I can't believe that score. So next Saturday are you going take money with you, just in case?

Kristi,
I am so glad that you keep up your blog, even when you're sick or busy. I've been sick/busy lately but just got a chance to catch up on your last few posts, and loved it. I would've had a heart attack at Goodwill, although I would've enjoyed standing next to you watching the whole thing. You always seem to be so good at keeping your cool in a situation like that. Annie Kate's day with her dad was great, and I love that she took pictures. Anyway, I love reading what you guys are up to . . . thanks for sharing the fun.

What a bargain! Jemma would go crazy about all those pets in a jar (and she'd drive me crazy with them too)! You are so good at garage sales!! I'm pathetic when it comes to that kind of stuff.
