Goodwill Pray Request
Before I get into my escapade from yesterday, I'm pleased to announce my daughter who gave me the yellow sewing box, started her very own blog this week - For The Love of Yellow. Crystal has always loved yellow so I was surprised that she would let me have the sewing box. She's getting ready to move a hour-and-a-half away but we'll stil get together to be bargain shopping. I've been showing Crystal all of wonderful blogs I've found and she's going to be blogging about moving and fixing up their new home.
Now to my escapade, you might want to get a kleenex - this is heartbreaking - or at least my heart was broken....
Yesterday I had a dental procedure done that I need my DH to drive me home afterwards. I asked if we could go to Goodwill before the dentist appt and he said we could. DH stayed in the car while I went looking and I was looking as quickly as possible. Right away found a cute shabby pink tray and then a shabby white tray..wow I thought I've hit the jackpot! Then I found this cute mini platter and knew my time was running out. There was only one person working and wouldn't you know it, the first gal was buying TOO DANG MANY glasses that had to be individually wrapped.
By this time, I'm getting worried that my time is running out and here comes DH to say we have to go now - five minutes to my appointment. CRAP!
I sadly put my treasures on a shelf and walked out looking back at them. I begged DH to go back after my appt and get my things and he said he thought I had a problem...WHATEVER..I did chuckle because I don't spend that much money and I could be spending so much more money if I headed to the mall. I've been dreaming of my finds from yesterday but the dentist ordered rest for today. I'm that thinking tomorrow morning that I'm going to head back to Goodwill to see if they're still there. What's the chance of that? I seriously doubt they'll be there but DH is fairly confident that they'll right where I sit them down.
Have you ever had to leave something due to time constraints?
