He came home with another bad comment (disturbing other kids at nap time). I am starting to feel like a broken record with him. I figured since he started the day off bad he would have a comment, but thought it would be original.
My sister is a big supporter of the animals in town. She fosters animals until they find new homes and she has several herself. She is doing a big fundraiser next month to get food/blankets etc. So to assist her I am going to make t-shirt rugs. (My husband doesn’t know he is fixing to lose a bunch of t-shirts). I have asked people in town to donate there tshirts to the cause (so I don’t have to go buy more). Would be great if I could get a few done each month. Have you made t-shirt yarn rugs?
This was homecoming week and my son was able to dress up for most of it. Monday – Pjs, Tuesday – Disney, Wednesday – college football, Thursday – Tacky tourist, Tomorrow is Red out (school colors). I decided he could wait till the football game to wear his boutonniere. I did not want it to distract him at school. At 3pm their is a pep rally at the center of town, 5pm is the FFA bbq and then the game at 7:30pm. I am excited!!
I found a new app called Influenster. It is where you post reviews on products and get a chance to win boxes full of items to try. I hate buying new products in case I don’t like them, so hoping I will get a box to try out. I am up to 4 badges so far. Crossing fingers and toes! Have you received a box?
Yesterday we received the couch and dining set. I have been working hard to get the house in order. One wall of the dining room is full of garage sell items. I look around the house and think, oh I am almost done, just a few hours of work left. Then my husband brings in more items from the garage and I think oh man how did I let my life get so cluttered!! I still have items at my Aunt’s house I need to get moved down here.
I am up to 2 baskets bought from dirt cheap, totaling $20. I have sold $14 worth of items that I did not want. I gave my sister a big black trash bag full of items I didn’t want that she wanted. I still have items that I have marked for garage sell/Halloween giveaways. I decided that starting next month I wanted to share my crazy find with my blog followers (I am still getting together how I want to run that give away so look for that post on Oct. 1). If I add up the rest of the items (over 200) I paid .03 cents or less for it. The items I kept were notepads, gift tags, stickers, iron on patches, make up, tons of toys (for stocking stuffers) and so much more. I do plan to do some stocking giveaways in town to those in need.
