(Okay, stop laughing!)
Seriously, I AM reasonable about most things. I don't demand a lot from loved ones, I am polite to clerks and other folks in the stores, etc.
But right now, I am peeved.
You see, it is my intent to only *Buy American* when we get into a new house.
Fabrics and wallpaper...totally covered! SPOONFLOWER! Yeah...click that link. Awesome fabrics and wallpaper, made in America! Designers are independent artists that get a small percentage from each sale.
If you sew or quilt...I am so sorry (kinda) for giving you that link...you'll be on there for hours!
I thought I had found my new dishes. Then I found out the company that made them had *outsourced* to China in around 1989.
American Made Kitchen Stuff
But sadly, no dinnerware that I really like.
No, I don;t like Corelle....YUCK! Dropped one of those plates and it shattered...found slivers of glass for months! Also...saw enough Corelle to last me a lifetime when I worked for World Kitchen!
I did find one pattern from one place on that website that was *okay*...it was pretty, made in America...and $247.00 for a set for four people! HOLY SMOKE! I can't afford that!
So...I guess the search for dinner wear will go on.
About the move....I get the feeling everything is going to lag for a bit longer...then fall into place and start gaining speed. That is what usually happens with me and moving...it will be nothing, nothing, nothing, then BAM! All of a sudden I've moved!
We are playing a bit of a waiting game here...three things have to happen before I go up to New Hampshire to buy a house....and knowing my luck, all three will happen on the same day, lol.
All the baby goats are doing fine. I think I have decided to keep Charlie as our farm *mascot*. The Darlin' Man might protest, but I think I can make a good case for keeping the little guy around.
