new discovery

My friend, Sarah, posted something about a deal she found thanks to craigslist.com, so I thought I'd take a look. You've probably heard of craigslist because I'm sure it's been around for a while, but I just checked it out the other day for the first time. It has potential and it led me to a fun find for Luke.

There are all kinds of listings of items that people are giving away for free and for sale. There are also listings for garage sales. I saw a post that said there would be a huge sale down the street from me, so I stopped by the sale today and found Luke a couple of new toys (a firetruck--he's addicted to them and a xylophone, so he can bang around and make some music) for a total of $5! Yippeee!

My dad was so sweet today and offered to watch Luke for a couple of hours while I ran some errands. It's funny to me that while I was able to run the errands sans Luke, I still made stops because of Luke (ie the garage sale). It was nice to be able to blast the radio in the car and run in and out of places in no time flat, but I did miss my little shopping buddy! I doubt Luke missed me though--Grandpa took him to the playground!! :)

On another note, the last Harry Potter book comes out tonight!! It's about time! Chad and I will be fighting over who gets to read it. We even talked about purchasing two books so we wouldn't have that problem--but we decided against it. I'm hoping to get some reading in during Luke's naps--if my blogging starts to suffer, you will know why!

I still haven't read a Harry Potter book! I did start the Left Behind series over, since they had 3 books in the prequel come out. Now I have every one of the LB books, thanks to you! :)

By the way "we" never decided that. And thanks to the support of some outside friends we did get two books and both started today!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Craigslist! I researched garage sales from it last night and hit a few garage sales this morning ...isn't it great?!!

Have you finished the book yet????? We got two copies, but Dan hasn't started it yet. It's killing me to keep my mouth shut!
