Summer winding down

School starts Monday - I'm experiencing the normal mix of sadness and jubilation to be returning my children to the care of our school district for several hours each day.  Yesterday was the "meet the teacher" morning at school.  Don't know much about D's teacher, but she likes structure (yeah!!), plus he'll be with another teacher have the day, as they team teach in 5th grade.  A got the "yelling" teacher that she wasn't particularly excited about, so we'll see how that goes.

Trying to wrap up a few projects this weekend; we were hoping to go to the beach, but thunderstorms put a damper on that plan.  One of D's friends is moving to Honduras (parents will be teaching at a mission school), but thankfully the boys were able to hang out for several hours over Thursday and Friday.

I have a bunch of stuff running through my head, and hopefully with the kids back in school I'll have more time to post my riveting brain spillage.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with yet another fine offering from our local yardsale site.  It's an "antique" cabinet. and can be yours for the amazing price of $200.  It's truly a very special antique to have smoked glass doors with magnetic closures... Seriously, do people even know what the word antique means?  Earlier this week, a different person was selling an antique Miracle Whip cooler.  First off, if it's PLASTIC, then I can pretty much guarantee it's not an antique, people!  And a bonus hint for selling vintage gems: don't try to sell it for twice what it's going for as a "buy it now" on eBay.  Sheesh.
