Something I love about on-campus housing is the drop and swaps they have here all the time! Who can resist free stuff? One time I got a crib mattress which was an answer to prayer. A couple of Saturdays ago they had a drop and swap. I was able to get a new baby bag to replace our horrible church bag we had before and some clothes and a pair of shoes for Ginger (even though she has clothes I still feel the need to get as much clothes for her as possible because we are borrowing these clothes so they don't really feel like hers) I also found a cute lamp. The lamp shade was falling off but that could be easily fixed so I grabbed it. I wan't to take a before picture, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it but I knew I was going to use it in the kids room. As I was setting down the camera I tripped on the cord and.... yeah, it fell and BROKE! Into tiny pieces! Unfix-able. So sad.
But luckily I can still use the cord and actually light bulb for another project, so all is not lost.
