It's been a good week round these parts. I'm a lame blogger these days...not alot of blogworthy news at our house these days.
Then, today I had the craigslist score of a lifetime!! You know how I LOVE me some craigslist deals. So, in my adoption mama haste, a few months back I bought a Moby Wrap. Then I babysat my unsuspecting baby cousin (second cousin, actually) and forced him to try it out with me. He was only 5 months old, and happy to oblige :) I however, decided I should've saved my money and gotten the Ergo that I really wanted. Moby was not for me.
So, I posted it on craiglist yesterday, stating how I'd rather have an Ergo. Ergo's however go for about $120 compared to my $40 Moby. I figured I could use the cash. Then, lo and behold, a wonderful craigslist shopper called. Sweet Sarah, I'll call her. She was "desperate" for a Moby. Her baby was too small for her nearly new Ergo and it wasn't working for them. And, she wanted to trade me, straight across, for her Ergo. SCORE! I told her that I realized that her's was worth more than mine, and I unfortunately, don't need it for awhile and wasn't ready to fork out any extra cash to make up the difference. She said she didn't care, she was desperate, and would happily trade me straight across. It is in nearly perfect condition! Yay, craiglist! I LOVE you.
Christy, who is also mid adoption waiting and waiting for a referral for a sweet little man from Ethiopia. Christy and I got onto the waitlist within a few weeks of eachother and are lucky enough to live close enough to hang out occasionally! I love Christy, she is so much fun and she never gets sick of hearing about adoption stuff. (Nor do I get sick of hearing about hers! Match made in heaven)
here. How I cant' wait to sleep all night long, in a place that someone else cleans, and someone else makes beds. Where someone else will cook and clean up the dishes. And do the laundry, and where we get to go shopping at places called Fabric Crush. Then, my browser crashed, and I lost it. So, there you have the nutshell version.
Now, I must go clean up my kitchen and pick up some dirty laundry, since there is no one else here to do it. :)
