lowly horrors

(no subject)

You know what? For the most part, the inane aspects of my day can be tweeted about in less than 140 characters, it seems. Think of it as 'I've been sparing you the boring details'. I miss you guys, though. This really was the best format for sharing photos, updates, catching up with friends, etc.
I wish online life were simple again.

I'm not even going to try and fill in what's been happening since my last post. It's not worth it, I promise.
Let's just start off with inane again, shall we?

The universe has decided to replace all the awesome midcentury garage sale finds I've always managed to dig up with KID STUFF lately. Which is nice, of course. And frankly, it's fun to see their faces light up when I drag a bargain home. The don't really do that for teak-handled silverware.

Today I found a sand and water table in spectacular, almost-new condition for $30. It matches the activity cube/slide that I found a few weeks ago for $40 (also pretty much new). I've mostly abandoned plastic toys when I could (at least for The Bee), but this stuff is really sturdy and awesome.

And here are my ridiculously wholesome and all-American suburban children:

So, how are you?
