Spring Break

So who in the heck invented Spring Break?

Teachers? Kids?

Certainly not Moms.

Is it Easter Vacation?  Maybe the Easter Bunny invented it, I doubt he had any kids if he did.  Must have been a bachelor bunny.

About two days into this wonderful break every year I ask myself "is this ever going to end"?

The candy is long gone and I have eaten enough egg salad sandwiches to last me for the rest of the year.

The weather is not good enough to throw the kids outside and there are not enough movies in the whole Erie County library system to keep them out of trouble.

Some people go on trips, I opted out of that after our famous Virginia trip where the kids wore their winter boots, forgot their sneakers, and it was all my fault.

Monday they will be back in school.

I hope I make it that long.

Thrifting "are you kidding me"?

So I have been reading alot of blogs lately about thrifting.  There is some sort of big deal going on like "try not to buy anything retail for 30 days".

You have got to be kidding  me.

Try 30 years.

I bet you could fit all the crap I have bought retail in a lunchpail.  OK, maybe a file cabinet.

No shit, I am not kidding.

I will start to post crap I get either from thrift stores, free, or crap people just give me.

I was going to start it today, but I have no idea how to take my camera off "movie" and put it on "photo".

Oh yeah, here's a great start.  1.  camera: given to me by oldest daughter when she got one on her new cell phone.  Camera number 2, gift from a friend when she upgraded.  Neither one I know how to use.

Still trying to figure out how to put the film in them.

Talk later,
