It needs a new ribbon, but other than that it is in perfect condition! It weighs about 32 pounds lol! And I adore it. It totally makes me smile. I've been looking on ebay and other places for a manual typewriter and they always seem so expensive.
This one in perfect condition--every key works--was only $25. So, best husband ever! Not only that....we had a weird situation with our oven door the other day. One screw came off the handle of the door, but in an attempt take the door off to fix it, the insulation from the door shattered--EVERYWHERE. I should've taken a picture it was so crazy, but I was so frustrated and upset. Buying a new stove just wasn't in the budget this month. Again, the best husband ever looked on Craig's List and found someone in our neighborhood selling her stove. She said it worked fine, she was just getting new appliances. Turns out the stove she was selling was the exact one we had! She sold it to us for $40! So we joke, "this NEVER happened..." lol.
Ok, best husband ever...check.
Want to see the worst hair cut ever? Little man was sitting 5 feet away from me cutting out pictures. He came over twice to show me what he was cutting. Both times I said, "oh, nice, but make sure you are sitting with the scissors, not walking around with them." I looked away for a minute or two and when I looked back he had the scissors on top of his head! The damage was already done! This time I did remember to take a picture:
You know how people usually say, the picture doesn't do it justice, it looks better in real life? Well I can assure you this looked WAY WORSE in real life. It was a HUGE patch. I immediately shuffled him upstairs to cut his hair, but the short guard on the clippers didnt take off enough to make the bald patch unnoticable. So I threw up my hands in the air and told him he'd have to wear hats for a while lol. Best husband ever was brave enough to buzz it on the shortest guard and it looks MUCH better albeit it VERY short. I guess I can laugh about it now, sort of. Definitely scrapworthy, dontcha think?
And finally, as promised, how about the winner of my giveaway from last week? I used Random.org
which makes Doreen my winner. Doreen, I will email you!
Ok, I am (understandably, I think) wiped and ready for bed. Have a great night!
