We have a very cute hall bench and end table that we just don't have room for. If you want them, they're yours! Fred can even bring them by for you. It kills me to get rid of the hall bench, but we just can't seem to squeeze it anywhere in the new house :(

The dimensions of the hall bench are 71" tall, 41" wide, 18" deep
The dimensions of the end table are 22" square by 21" tall

Please be careful if you go to the AJ Pool in the next few weeks. We were there today and a little girl got seriously hurt on the water slide (the red, tube one to be specific). She hit her head somewhere inside the slide and came out unresponsive into the water. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance. It is very likely she had suffered a concussion. After speaking to an adult friend of the girl's family (they were sitting just next to us on the grass), the woman said pool staff said the same thing happened just YESTERDAY too! There appears to be a dangerous curve in the slide that, if hit at the right angle, kids have been bumping their heads. The slide was closed for the rest of today and hopefully until they can get it fixed. Please just be careful!

part time sitter

Hello Ladies! I am looking for a PART TIME sitter for our little one Dylan starting September 5th. I just recently got a great job offer and once the kids go to school and my neice leaves we will need someone to watch him Tuesdays and Fridays 7:30-3pm. He's super easy to take care of and is the best napper EVER! We'd prefer someone here but know that most of you have your own little ones so your home works too if need be.

If you are interested please give me a call or email me so we can talk more.

Thanks in advance!
