Halley girl had her first day of school this week. I am not a crier... I was just so proud and excited for her. She absolutely thrives and shines when she is learning. I love her excitement and simple joy in the fact she gets to go to school. I really hope that lasts until college.
Her grandma sprung for the cute butterfly backpack. I love this picture because right now the backpack is nearly as big as she is. Each year it will get a bit smaller. That might actually bring some tears to my eyes.
Ebay has been good to me this week. I was able to sell Jason's original iPhone for a small fortune. Nearly double what we had even hoped for. To a man in Portugal of all places. I guess the old version is unlockable so computer savvy people can use it on non AT&T networks. With the Ebay proceeds we were able to get TWO new iPhone 3G's!!!! Bye bye ghetto phone that I have been suffering with for over two years. Hello emails on the go! I also finally, finally won a yard of this ridiculous mermaid fabric that has been out of print forever. I have been bidding and losing for over six months. Yuck. I am not competitive and don't want to overpay, but constantly losing was getting annoying. Halley is desperate for me to make her a dress out of it. I fought so hard for it that I feel like it's almost too precious to cut, but now that I will have not one, but two little girls to hand it down to, I think I can make the sacrifice.
On a random note... does anyone have this Shark Steam Mop? Another infomercial temptation. We have laminate floors (which I love) but they are constantly creepy and I don't want to pull out the chemicals daily to clean them. It looks so easy on TV! My floors can't be nearly as dirty as the fake ones with fake dirt right? Give me an honest opinion.
