A few bargains & some narcolepsy

Good morning!! Boy was I surprised to see the sun shining today! It is so bright & cheery out~I'm loving it! After I dropped the lil man off at school this morning I headed to the post office to mail out my etsy package! (i'm still highly amused! (: )Then off to the Salvation Army I went ....I haven't been for awhile - haven't had the time or money really but I wanted to see if I could find any cool cookie cutters so I headed across town. I didn't find a single cookie cutter but I did manage to spend a whopping $1.68 for these two things:
this little sampler was .59 -even had a picture frame

this little shelf was .99 -they originally wanted $4.99 for it!! luckily all pink tags were .99 today or it would still be @ the store! lol

I don't know if all the thrift stores are like this but the few in my town seem to be really outrageous on stuff these days ~ thrift stores are supposed to be for the poor people! It just blows my mind what they put on stuff. I found a long skinny paddle board today too but they wanted $5.99 for it! It was crazy!

Anyways~ Even though it's beautiful out I'm draggin butt today. I didn't get much sleep last night thanks to the dear old hubby. I think he has narcolepsy or something.  He fell asleep in the chair around 9 last night & when I went to bed at 12:30 I managed to get him up(which very rarely happens once he's asleep) & had him go to bed ... I wish I would've left him in the chair! lol He went to our room & feel into bed sideways -on top of the cover-in the middle of the bed!!! I couldn't get him to move for nothing! So I managed to squeeze diagonally into bed -feet hanging off the edge & after about 45 mins I fell asleep only to be woke up again @ 3:30 when he finally was uncomfortable & woke up & was ready to get in bed the right way! UGH! He drives me crazy! I always tell him someone could come in & steal me & the boy away & he wouldn't even know it! He can sleep anywhere & through anything! Does anyone else's hubby do this? I don't mean to complain~I really do love him but I think I'm going to have to take me a nap to make it through the day. Darn! (hehe)
Well that's about all I've got today ~ hope everyone enjoys their Thursday! My son will be home tomorrow but the hubby is going to work some OT so I'm going to find something fun for just the two of us to do. :) Have a great day!

My hubby can sleep anywhere, anytime. I think he can sleep where ever he relaxes. Me, I like a moving car! Just like a baby!
Maybe it's time to put him on graveyard shift so you sleep different hours! LOL

Woman you preah it! Our GW's ar making me SOOOOOOO mad right now! The big one on 23 in Delaware hired a STAGER! A STAGER! To amke anything worth buying look better by displaying it more nicely. Whatever. It's still a used product. I pass up so much stuff these days ont he sheer principal of the matter. It's USED! Price it used! Geesh!

Ok... if my soapbox now. ;)
