If you know Joey and I well, you know that Camp Lu-Jo holds a VERY special place in our hearts. (click here and here for stories and pics)
This week marks the FIRST time that Joey or I have been to camp without the other one since our story began about 15 years ago! It feels VERY unnatural for him to be there without me! However, life means that “You can’t always get what you want” – a line from one of my favorite Rolling Stones songs! Since this year has been crazy in my line of work (mortgages) and it’s only getting busier…there was NO way for me to be able to make it happen this year.
So… Yesterday Joey left for camp. Jax was pretty bummed, because he loved it last year. We plan on spending an entire day out there this week so at least we’ll get a little fix!
Okay, thanks for getting through the obligatory family stuff… here’s what you really want:: The Dumpster Dive story!
My mom got here yesterday from Ft. Worth to help w/ Jax for the week since I will be working. Tonight as we were on our way home we spotted a GREAT “trash” pile. Tomorrow is “Big Trash Monday” in our neighborhood! I didn’t get a pic of the pile, but here are a few items I pulled out of it. This was my FIRST time “dumpster diving“. I’m sure my husband would approve! ha! For the record, I got all of this loaded by myself and it took two trips!
You can find your very own Whirley Pop HERE for $25.19 plus shipping and handeling. I’m proud to say that I paid a WHOLE $3.00 for mine!! I’ve been wanting one forever… timing is everything!
y tuned for After photos… I might actually get through a project this week… ok, don’t hold your breath!
Happy Monday – Suzanne
