My Man

I may mock Tigerfan at times, but really, he is a good egg! He knows how much I hate garage sales so he pretty much did the whole thing on his own! He let me sleep late with the kids (as late as an 8 month old allows), wait to come until after I took Football Boy to baseball practice and then sent me on an errand. All total, I think I worked about 45 minutes of the sale---and I made no money whatsoever! Maybe that is why I don't like garage sales!

By the time it was time to shut things down, the furniture company called to say they were delivering the furniture. So Tigerfan went to meet them and got it all set up. Of course, the ottoman didn't come in. A screw went through one of the kitchen chairs and they brought the wrong pillows...but we have most of it! :)

Last night we ordered an area rug and hopefully before long I will make or find some curtains and for the first time in our married life we will have a completely decorated living room! Wow! All thanks to my little OCD man who is the creative genius in our family.

On a totally different but humorous note, he also went to his momma's to make reservations for us to go to the World of the Mouse in November last night. My SIL and her kids were preparing to leave this morning so her son (6) was making everyone goodbye pictures. He proudly presented Dancer with hers last. It was a red blob with a yellow triangle sticking out of it. I, of course, had to ask what it was.

His reply (said, by the way, like I was incredibly stupid not to know): It is my brain with a chip in it!

Oh, I hate yard sales too! I am SO with you on that!
Can't wait to see the pictures of the furniture! PLEASE SHOW US!

Oh but garage sales are so much fun! I love having a garage sale. I get out of housework for a day... usually get to have supper out... and people give me money for junk that I don't want. What could be better? lol
My DH is the creative genius in our household, too.
