Last night was a long and hard one. I stopped getting the headaches about four days ago... and after one day of feeling almost like myself I got a cold. Not a bad one... but after being sick for 10 days, and only one day of real rest, it knocked me off my feet. Yesterday I started to feel much better. Then Logan started to cough after nap time. Not just cough, but that seal bark cough that is always related to croup. It just got worse and about 2:30am last night, Don took him to the ER. Just like last year, they gave him a Neb treatment and within a couple hours he was doing much better. Today he sounds like he has a wheeze, but he doesn't sound like someone is sitting on his chest and so as I put him to bed, finally, around 8am this morning, I decided the big kids and I were going to leave. We went and got muffins and cocoa at Starbucks and then headed to Goodwill. We spent until 1pm there, looking through the treasures and enjoying being together.
As much as I could complain about the day, it was actually wonderful. I am dog tired, but feel almost 100% and I knew Logan was resting, now that he could breath properly again. My other two kids are healthy and were dancing with the clothing on the racks, searching for 100% wool sweaters for me, and sitting in the book section reading someone else's used-to-be treasures. It was a great morning. I came home to find Logan up and watching Mary Poppins, and Don (who is also dog tired as you can imagine) dosing peacefully snuggled up against our baby. Really, for a sucky night, it sure has been a beautiful day.
Now on to the score!!
In the center of this picture is a tin camping cup, a camping bowl, and a enamelware frying pan. I don't know if it is Le Creuset, but it says "France" on the handle, making me think it probably is.
Even if not, it is in great condition and I was terribly excited to find it for $2.99 today!
Awww... my love of good books.
This basket is just lovely! It has a stain on the inside liner, but I am going to try to get that out. Other than that it is well made and in PERFECT condition. As is the other one (with the stripes). Usually the baskets I find at goodwill are missing a handle, have a hole, etc... but these two look great. I am excited to add them to my crazy basket collection.
I love thrifty days!
