We’re On A Roll!

Even if it is only a small roll, we are on one for sure. It being tax season, we’ve had a little extra money to play with so obviously…we are. Yesterday we had a family lunch at Red Robin and it was nice-except the migraine I contracted after not having any coffee in the morning. Yes, we had another death here. The inner stem to my Pyrex peculator met its end at the hands of my toddler. It was a pretty rough morning to say the least. After Red Robin, when husband suggested going out to our favorite antique store-Wayside Antiques-I can’t say I was too thrilled. I felt so sick I wanted to curl up and cry (and vomit) but he had a plan to fix me. A stop at the gas station for water and Motrin followed by a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (with a turbo shot). Later rather than sooner, I was feeling better and was happier to go to Wayside.

After some looking we thought it was a miss, so I settled in to talking with the women working. I adore her, but can never remember her name. She remembers my collection, my husband, and of course my son. While we talked shop Niko ran off down the isle and daddy had to catch him but something else caught his eye (he did catch the child, too).

To find one for only 5 was a huge find, so obviously, it came home. I explained to the woman working how they were used since she didn’t really have much of an idea and she said that another one had come through and when she found it she would put it in a drawer for me. The more handles the better!

I would write more, but woke up this morning covered in hives and writing is distracting from scratching my skin off.
