The new job and other stuff

Whew! What a week last week. Here I thought working two days a week wouldn't be so difficult; after all, many moms work 40 or 50 and they survive just fine. I worked at the boys' school a grand total of ten hours and let's just say I didn't quite plan for it. To cut to the chase: my Tylenol bottle's a little lighter but I'm going back for more because my class of 13 three-year-old's is so dang cute.

To add to the fun of starting a job, I figured what the heck: I'm going to have my first garage sale. Ever. And invite 8 or 9 friends to bring their stuff, too.

Pete had mercy on me and took the boys to Grandma and Grandpa's for the night so I could root through his stuff to see what to sell. I didn't make a fortune, far from it, but have quite a flip-flop tan to show for it.

Here are a few gems that found new and loving homes over the weekend (none of them were mine thankyouverymuch):

I guess the owner got his answer and no longer felt the need to keep the Evangecube.

Just as scary in person.

So was this.

Saw a few kids wander by this and just stare.

Something a little creepy about this display. Never found out what kind of animal that was.

Sadly, no one was Jonesin' Saturday.

And as a bonus, my friend G saw fit to break out her collection of wigs for the occasion. I understand this is somewhat of a habit with her, or maybe even an addiction? Lots. Of. People. Must. Dress. In. Wigs.

Here she is as an apparently normal and very cute mother of four beautiful and well-adjusted children. At least until they find her collection of wigs.

...and after her, uh, transformation into her alter-ego, Mrs. Kintner from Jaws.

Christine, this post was very entertaining. Can't wait to hear more about your job.Are you teaching? You had some very interesting stuff to sell and they must be someone's "treasure". I would have bought the wigs!

We need to get G some hats to go with her wigs! A black net number would have polished her transformation, well, that and about 40 more years in the sun or some serious stage makeup!

Do tell more about the job. Are you teaching at the preschool? I did that while both of mine were in preschool- I enjoyed it but it sure wore me out!!!

That was just too funny. Looks like I missed out. :) G as Jaws lady, classic!. The animal on the clock interestingly enough looks like Fox from "Fox in Socks" Dr Seuss....hee hee
