Another Saturday, another dozen yard sales. Took Bruce and several bottles of water with me this time, to avoid a repeat of last week's dehydration and overextertion-induced contractions.

We cleaned up, again.  Bruce went absolutely insane at one sale where the woman had gotten a lot of baby clothes without knowing if it was a boy or a girl. So there was a lot of yellow and green, and a surfeit of baby duckies. We rummaged through 3 huge tupperware bins and picked out every...single...thing with a ducky on it. Onsies, fuzzy jumpsuits, even ducky booties. Hope hypothetical critter looks good in yellow...

I was going to pass on the baby audio set (is your fetus wired for sound?), but Bruce insisted. His rationale was that, since I'm so anxious, it will be good for me to have. You can't use it until about 5 months, but this way if I get worried or the baby doesn't move one day I can find the heartbeat and be reassured. It made me cry...I have the most thoughtful husband ever.

Of course I don't need any of the maternity clothes yet, but it's all washed a packed up for this summer. I refuse to buy any's really extortionate what they expect you to pay, and the indifferent quality. Between what I got today and what Erin has to send me from home, I should be pretty well set.

I hit ten sales this morning between eight and twelve, including two church sales, which are gold. Then I got all the junk off the front porch (Bruce cleaned the car by moving crap from one place to another), put a coat of primer on the sewing room walls (goodbye hideous orange faux-wood panelling), and am now sorting through todays take.

The list is mostly so I can remember what I purchased for whom, though there is an element of gloating involved. I so kicked ass!
