Treasure found! I've been looking for the perfect stroller to roll around the continent of Europe. The winner by far was the Maclaren XT. Being cheap, I decided against buying it. With less than a week until we take to the sky, I got desperate. So, I cruised the site of Craigslist for THE MAC. Craig didn't let me down. Just in the next county, someone was selling a red Mac XT. It was used and cost $300 less than a new one. I got excited & emailed the owner. She responded with her address & said it was mine...then it hit me. People who respond to Craig's ads end up dead. I decided to call my husband & ask him it was a good idea. His last words were "be careful". Not helpful. I then called my twin sister who freaked out. "you're not going by yourself, are you?" I told her NO. It was true...LAN was with me. My anxiety started getting the best of me. One more call. My mom! She was excited that I found the stroller! I quickly hung up & drove into a nice neighborhood. It felt safer surrounded by upscale homes. I pulled into the driveway- car still running, door wide open, and walked up to the door. The stroller and money exchanged, I jumped back into the car. Driving off I was excited with finding such an awesome deal. AND I was alive. I will admit Bundy did push around in my mind. Next time Cody is going with me on my Craigslist treasure hunts!
