The family is in town this weekend for the annual Brookstone Yard Sale. The sale is Saturday and in order to prepare ourselves, we’ve been shopping constantly since Thursday. This morning we crammed all six people into my mother’s truck, then predictably, had to call JD to meet us with ANOTHER truck since the first one was soon overflowing with lamps, tables, kids toys, clothing and jewelry.
Then we went to Goodwill.
Then I came home and napped for fourteen minutes before rushing out to Moon Pie’s Brownie troop meeting. In honor of Mother’s Day, they had prepared a wonderful Italian dinner of noodles and uncooked meatballs. While I was eating my weight in e coli, the rest of the ladies sat around and contemplated the effects of materialism on US consumers.. I’m just kidding, they went shopping!
We’re stimulating the economy Zolli-style.
Now I’m too exhausted to upload all of the pictures so you’ll have to imagine all of the treasures. If they include an over-sized puppet and some glassware etched with the name “Ethel”, you’re on the right track.
