Do We Have Glue Sticks In The House?

Since it rained all day Saturday, we had to postpone the garage sale. So then the question became, What to do with all the time that had just been freed up?

Clean and sort some more for garage sale next weekend?

Of course not!
It was off lunch with my love and then....
off to the thrift stores!
For real?!?!
We just cleared out the house and now we're filling it up again?
I know - shameless!
But in our defense, we went in with a specific list and a very limited budget. no crazy, impulse shopping allowed! And we shopped at the uber-extra affordable Fancy Store {AKA Goodwill Outlet.} Hubby scored a speaker-woofer-tweeting-box-sub-thing that has been on his wish list for a while. Price? $3.99! Love a good deal! He took it apart {as in tore it to pieces!}, removed the damages parts, and rebuilt it. Such a handy man! {and cute to boot, too!}

Apparently there were several holes that needed to be filled on the back, so here is conversation that went down:

Hubby: Do you have any glue sticks in the house?
Me: {Shocked and in disbelief at the question} Do I have any glue sticks?
Hubby: yeaaaa...
Me: {still shocked} for real?!?!
Hubby: {confused}
Me: oh-ho my little pigeon, do I have glue sticks? Is the sky blue? I am a crafting, repurposing housewife who lives in an ever changing DIY space. {laughing now} Do I have glue sticks... heehee! You know this house is never low on glue sticks... or glue guns for that matter! In fact there is one right here:

See who's awesome blog I was reading at the time? :)

See that white bag? See how close I am to it - 5 feet away at the most. That is where my mini glue gun is. With me. Almost everywhere I go. It's a sickness I know.

There is even a designated drawer in my desk for glue guns and glue sticks.

So hubbster glue gunned the evening away, while I tried out my new Fancy Store purchase:

A Vortex Steamer for..... get ready for it.... $3.99!!!!!!
Since there were no microfiber pads included, Hubby just tied a clean rag diaper style around the base, and I got to cleanin'!

It worked great. {squeal with joy!}
