Before it started hitting 90 degrees by 9am here, LilZ, Nikki and I would take walks through the neighborhood early Saturday morning. One time, we were a few houses down and saw a yard sale. They had that table in the picture above marked for one dollar. ONE DOLLAR. I thought my heart was going to stop. My body went on Good Deal Alert Red meaning I had to buy that table NOW! But, we had no money on us. I just quickly mumbled to LilZ that we were going to run home and grab four quarters out of the change jar to come buy it.
On our way back there was one couple eyeballing it and another family with a baby getting out of their car. We sped up so we could claim our property. Just as we got there, one woman said, “I’m going to get this table.” You would have think she had said, “I’m going to steal the soul of that woman who just walked up.” I felt so defeated and sad over the loss of that damn table. I turned to LilZ and said, “Oh well.” Then…THEN!…the homeowner was all, “This woman was going to buy it…” and she started looking around. I was all, “Here I am!” She had heard me tell LilZ we were going to come back and get it! She was saving it for us. We gave her our four quarters and LilZ carried it home. I was so DAMN PROUD.
NikkiZ played on it for the first time this weekend and she loved it.
