I’ve mentioned before that I live in an uber-planned suburban jungle.
This kind of living has its benefits (why, hello Starbucks-within-walking-distance and yard that takes 1.5 minutes to mow). It also has its challenges, like an HOA that raises the Type-A archetype to an ART.
There is a stipulation in our neighborhood’s bi-laws or charter or whatever LEGALLY BINDING document that rules these mean streets with an iron fist, that residents are not allowed to have individual yard sales. Ever.
But this year, the HOA took pity on us poor suburban warriors and lifted the ban on yard sales for one day. So every house in our bajillion-house
over- super-planned neighborhood threw a yard sale on the same day.
It was awesome.
A few moments from the day:
With the profits of our sale and the $$ I’ve been saving, we had enough to head to the Apple store and buy the laptop I’ve been salivating over for 6 months.
And then I got to go home and spend 27 hours writing this post because I have NO IDEA what I’m doing on a Mac. (Suggestions welcome!)
But it’s ok because I figured out how to make pictures look like this:
There’s nothing I can write that will top the picture above. Happy Monday, friends.
