I’ve now officially entered the world of bartering.

Next weekend I am going over to the house of a woman my MIL is friends with. My MIL and I are going to clean her house and while we’re doing that, she is going to sew me some curtains. How exciting is that? I think my MIL is coming along mostly because she knows I’m a horrendous housekeeper. Her friend does contract work for interior desingers, so I know they’re going to be great.

Hooray for bartering!

    That is an awesome idea! I hope you get some kick ass curtains out of the deal. I think the only thing I could barter right now are personal training sessions… after I have my surgery, of course! 😉

    Sounds good to me!! Cleaning for curtains….and I bet your MIL will do a lot of the cleaning!!

    Here in NY, it’s not that weird not to drive, there’s so much public transportation, most people don’t drive to work anyway.

    That video of Charlie made me smile. His smile is infectious!

  3. Yeah for new curtains! I am envious as I’d love to replace the ones in our dining room. Have fun cleaning!

  4. A) Bartering is awesome! I see way more of it in all of our futures!
    B) I do nothing on vacation all the time. That’s all I do–nothing.
    c) If you feel it’s right to spend the money on this now for Charlie, then it’s probably the right thin. Your gut feel is uber-important.
