News update: Weebit is going to law school this fall. Mom so Proud. Ack! Do you know how much law school costs? Baby needs more than a new pair of shoes. I think I’ll recommit to ebay Fridays and see how far that gets us. Clicky-loo and buy and I earn a wee commission for the grad school fund. No pressure. In any case, I have a lot of saved searches.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
