Treasure hunting

It’s been far too long since I’ve had a proper treasure hunt.

Mom woke me up early. She hated to, as I got into Dallas really late, but it was necessary. We were women on a mission, and this mission starts early.

We started close to Gran’s house before extending our reach. Mom had a list of stops prepared, but fluorescent signs kept causing detours. One cannot help this– the call of the sale is quite strong.

I have no idea how many garage and estate sales we actually stopped at. It was a lot. I had a great day. I think I actually bought something out from under my mother, which is not normally how this works. As we typically have different targets, we made solid shopping partners.

We shopped until we ran out of money and energy. Six hours was plenty, and besides, the Expedition was full!

I love these mornings with my mom. She’s pretty awesome, which is probably a good thing since she informed me tonight that no matter how hard we try, we all end up just Iike our mothers. Looks like I’m gonna be just fine 😉
