Happy Spring! Now go get dirty!

So I asked Mark if he would take me back to Goodwill in the morning for the half off chair. I don't think he was interested in any chair from Goodwill but I really needed his help. One, I needed him to help me get the chair out of the store and into the truck. I could have gotten one of the workers there to help but that takes so long. The second reason I needed Mark to go with me was to run interference. You see on the morning of the 50% off Saturday at Goodwill, it is Bedlam!
I tell Mark it is an 8:00 a.m. opening this morning. We got over there about a hour to soon, however there were already a couple people lined up at the door. Mark gets out of the truck and goes up to the doors to check the time for me. He comes back to inform me 9:00 a.m. is when they open and he has already had words with someone. "What?"(it could be a record for him) I guess one of the three people standing at the door told Mark to get lost, they don't open until 9:00 and HE was in line first and was going to get whatever it was Mark was there for. Which Mark responded with a "Fudge You!" (only he didn't say Fudge) He makes friends everywhere he goes.
We went to kill some time at Micky D's in A.J. i.e. have coffee with all the snowbirds. Ten till 9:00 we are back at Goodwill and now there is a BIG line at the double doors. But there is a second set of double doors (the exit) and there is one lady sort of standing over there. I decide I'm going in those doors, screw that big line. There is no "line" rule at the Goodwill as far as I know. Mark is tagging along behind me. My personal Goodwill rule is don't make friends in line when you are getting a sweet deal at Goodwill. This is WAR people. First person to the best junk wins!
The next thing I know is there is this huge dude walking up to me and this other woman. We are talking over 300 lbs. I'm thinking, CRAP what does he want! He asks me what it is I'm there for. I reply, "Oh just some clothes." I mean he is definitely not my size so no confrontation here. He says he has been there since 7:30 a.m. and he was there for the sectional couch and he is not leaving without it. My hopes were that he was not lying like I was.
Meanwhile, Mark was in the background sipping his coffee and deciding what he was going to have to do if this guy gives me any trouble getting in the doors. Oh and he was making friends with all the old ladies from Minnesota now in line behind me and the big guy.
The doors finally open and I make it in behind the woman in front of me, but in front of everyone else, big guy included. I mean she was there first and I didn't want to be rude. That's Mark's job. I made a beeline to the chair and it is mine! Other than some guy in the checkout line with two bikes trying to cut in front of me (Mark gave him the business), the purchase was a success. No one was harmed during the purchase of my chair. I heard many complements about the lovely chair as we hauled the sucker across the store and out the doors.
I gotta say I'm pretty happy with it. I cleaned it, used the AMAZING Steve Henry enzyme cleaner all over it and dried it in the sun all day. It is going to look really cute in my Girley guestroom. Now I have to take the bedroom door off the hinges to get it in the room. Sort of a lot of work for a $40 chair. Oh well, Mark won't mind.
Good luck with your sweet deals this 2010!
All my best,

October is breast cancer awareness month. Anyone living under a rock, that is what all the pink stuff is about.
I normally use this blog to keep everyone up to date on all of the goofy things going on in my life.
Today I am going to use it to get the message out for breast cancer awareness and prevention. Ladies, make sure you are doing your monthly check. Men, (though it is rare) 1,910 new cases of breast cancer will be found in men in 2009. So if you guys find any lumps, get them checked out.
I am leading a team on the Passionately Pink For The Cure fund raiser. I would sure appreciate any donations you could make on behalf of Team Lashology. I will try to give you some instructions to make it simple.
1. Go to
This page should say Lashology on it.
2. Click on the big pink button that says "Donate to this team"
3. Follow directions and donate what you can.
All money donated will go to the Passionately Pink For The Cure. Let's not lose one more person to this disease. Thank you for your support.
All my best,
This link is really great to check out for questions reguarding breast cancer.
