It's Back

Lately, John and I have been organizing the "junk" we have stored in our basement. We had Goodwill come by and pick up some items last week, and we threw a lot of things away as well. The last thing we needed to do something with is our NordicTrac exercise machine. A friend gave it to us a few years ago and it has been taking up a corner in the basement for WAY too long. It's GREAT exercise, but you have to be pretty coordinated to get the exercise benefit. And neither of us fits that bill. We bought a treadmill last year which we use frequently (well, John uses it frequently!) so the NordicTrac needed to go. Yesterday, I hauled it upstairs and out to the curb and taped a FREE sign to it. It was gone in less than an hour and I was soooo happy and quite proud that my little plan worked! John was happy too. This morning when I went to get the newspaper, guess what was back on our curb? You guessed it...that stupid NordicTrac. I guess whoever took it decided they weren't coordinated enough or didn't have a free corner in their basement. That was about 7:30 this morning. It's 3:30 now and it's still sitting there.......arghhh. We can't even GIVE the thing away. So I guess we'll be hauling it to Goodwill next week or returning it to that corner again. Anybody interested in taking it off our hands?

On another note, we're having a beautiful day here. Abbey rode her new scooter for awhile and she's great at it...she goes really fast too. Fun!

Hey Mer,
That is a funny story. I have never had anyone bring something back. I sent you an email. Let me know if it didn't come to you. I am afraid I am either putting .com or .net when it should be the other. Hope you guys have a great spring break. Ours is coming to an end and it makes us sad :(
