Please pray...

Yesterday at church we learned of a mother who works full-time as a nurse. She has a 5 year old boy who is autistic and blind. Their home burned down over the weekend. They completely lost everything. They had to run out in their pajamas (they didn't even have shoes!) and left everything behind. I don't know too many other details but please keep this family in your prayers. This would be devastating but it is especially bad around the holidays.

So today I went to the thrifts and picked up a BUNCH of boy's clothing & toys. It was tons of fun. I got 4 pairs of jeans, 8 tops, 2 sweatshirts, 2 pairs of cords, 3 stuffed animals, five really loud instruments (the mom will be thrilled I'm sure). They were all in excellent condition and the majority of them were Gymboree. I was also able to pick up a Gap winter jacket, three sweaters, and 6 sets of scrubs for the mom. All of this cost me about $100. Isn't Goodwill wonderful?

While I was out shopping and having fun, I stopped at the new pizza place in town. It is a drive-thru which I am loving! I love pizza and I am lazy so this works perfectly for me! I got this awesome creation of cheese, ham, pepperoni and dough. I forget what they called it but it was incredible. And now of course I am feeling guilty for eating about 75% of it before throwing it out the window. I have lost about 9 pounds over the last two months and I am hoping to lose another 10 or so. This is not going to help but it was SOOOO good.

Ebay just announced a listing sale and since I found a few items at the thrifts to re-sell, I will be shopping & listing tomorrow. Here is a link to the announcement for those who want to list before the holidays and make some extra cash:

DECEMBER 6-8: List 5000 items for FREE

On the health front, I feel like I have YET ANOTHER cold coming on. I have a sore throat and a cough. It has been going around the retirement community but since I JUST HAD A COLD (are the cold germs listening?!?) I thought I would be safe. My immune system is terrible though and I know it is going to be a bad one. Ugh.

And tomorrow I will be posting a giveaway so stay tuned.

  1. Oh my goodness.
    Where to begin?
    I am praying you feel better.
    Is it a calzone? It looks like one and now I want one. I can't believe you got it in a drive thru- awesome.
    Is stuff still selling on ebay?
    I am nervous it is too close to Christmas and I will have to rush to get it out.
    What do you think?
    I am so praying for your mom- please let me know if there is anything I can do.
    I am having a giveaway tomorrow too!
    Can't wait to see yours.
    Miss you.
