Friday we had a play date with one of my very best friends. I have known Anne since high school, and we were roommates in college. We had babies 15 days apart, and Hannah and Luke have been best buds ever since.
So, as I am driving down her street towards her house, one of her neighbors has furniture by the curb. I almost swerved off the road. Go in and inform her that someone is giving away two perfectly good chests. We walk down there and inspect them, and then wait for her husband to leave for work. :) She says this is a normal occurrence, and that bulk pickup day is Friday. So, we load all three kids in her SUV, picked up the chest, and drove around the 5 adjacent neighborhoods. I haven't laughed that hard in forever. I can only imagine what we looked like. Taking turns jumping out of the car to examine trash. Luke told us we can not take other people's stuff. I kind of felt like I was being baited. How funny would it be to sit in the front window and watch to see who comes to take a peek?
I ended up with a neat iron and glass thing, no idea what it is supposed to be used for. But it has blue glass, like the old bell jars. After I brought it home, it sat in a scalding bath of antibacterial soap for 4 hours, then Lysol and Clorox wipes. Now it is home to a collection of corks.
I am a little worried if I bring home any more furniture, Josh may put me on the curb.
So funny, how our drive bys have evolved. In high school we would drive around looking for boys, in college we would drive around looking for parties, and now that we are married with kids, we are driving around looking for fabulous trash! Haha! Love you, sweet friend!
Can't wait to see what we find next week!
