Win & Lose

WIN: I found a slide/climber thingy on Craigslist last night. Retails for $399, I got it for $150 (I'm channeling my inner pregnancy-twin-Sarah) I'm so excited. Dahlia is loving climbing & sliding these days & to have something right out our backdoor this summer will be great. I was able to pick up all but two of the pieces this morning. Two very odd shaped pieces just wouldn't fit in my car. Oh well. We weren't going to put it up this weekend anyway.

LOSE: While Steve was packing his car for his overnight camping trip this morning (! I know - brrrr!) the glass patio table top, sitting a considerable distance from where he was & totally unmolested, touched, stacked upon or otherwise disturbed, SHATTERED. *sigh* It is now in a million pieces & I am now searching Craigslist for a (cheap) picnic table for our backyard.

You win some, you lose some....

Wow on both accounts. I keep looking for such a play structure, but I'm too cheap to pay what people want for them. I wonder what you would have thought about the table shattering if Steve hadn't seen it happen.

Yeah, I had mixed feelings about spending what I did on the play thing but I think when mid-summer rolls around I'll be thankful that I bit the bullet (that & I NEVER see such things for sale up here!!)

I think we would've thought someone had vandalized our table!! Weird! (in the old neighborhood, not so weird, but here...bizarre!)

Wow! That shattered tabletop is insane!
