My Afternoon Abroad

Cruising Craigslist - It's not the name of a band, but something I like to do when I feel like fantasizing about knowing how to do stuff.  I don't know anything about restoring old furniture, but looking through Craigslist makes me wish I did.  It also makes me dream of Ford F-150's and flatbeds, because it would make it so much easier for me to haul the furniture that I don't know how to refinish back to my house where I don't have a place to put it.  You know what else would be nice?  Free Chipotle on Fridays. 

So, lately I've been browsing more seriously in search of a refinishing project and one of the listings took me to a small town an hour away.  Unfortunately, it was for naught.  (Unless the $1 hot fudge sundae from McDonald's equates success, but seeing as there's one just down the street from me I'm thinking more along the lines of: FAIL.)  Having driven so far I wasn't ready to turn right around and go home, so I decided to browse a nearby boutique.  It wasn't that much fun looking at $20 lip balms and leopard print aprons, but I turned the corner and found some homemade trinkets that made my heart sing.  I even went the extra mile and wrote down some of the quotes I found so I could share them with you here.  First up, a refrigerator magnet that said:
"Between my therapist and my personal trainer, I have no "ME" time."
 Printed on a napkin:
"My reality check bounced."
and:
"I used to be driven but I pulled over."
On a couple of greeting cards:
"I'm so far behind I think I'm first."
 and,
"I'm pushing middle age.  That's enough exercise for me."
As for that last one, I don't recall giving anyone permission to read my thoughts and publish them.  Too hard to prove in court?

How about you refinish a chair for me, and I'll buy you free Chipotle on Friday?

Those quotes are fabulous!
