Best of Waukee Craigslist, Sept. 11 Edition

You can't make this stuff up. Here's the latest and greatest from Craigslist/Waukee.


Congratulations! You made it out of bed already today. Good job! (Everyone needs a little positive reinforcement, don't you think?) But seriously, that's a huge feat. Way to go, you!

Anyway, here's a little something to get you through the day - the best and brightest of Waukee/Des Moines Craigslist listings. Read these then go out there and face that cruel world!

How about we start with a little haiku?

Indian Summer

Glistening by moonlight
Spiderwebs are dancing
The depth of dog days

Moves like Jeter

New York Yankees - Derek Jeter Artwork Color Portrait - framed - $10

Derek Jeter looks a lot younger than I remember him. Glossy pictures will do that to a guy.

I want to push you around.

Antique Wooden Wheel Chair - $150

I've always said that it would be really cool if they made adult-size strollers. I think this is the answer to my prayers.

Nothing says Christmas like a giant blow up snow globe.


Not in a million years could I possibly get my husband to let me have one of these in our front yard. What about you?

He followed me home. Can I keep him?

Black Lab Pups - $400

They say a sucker is born every minute. Well, I'm here to tell you, don't be surprised if I adopt every single one of these cute little buggers. They just so fluffy!

Proof that I can't craft my way out of a paper bag. Show off.

Beautiful Repurposed Lawn Art - $30

Yeah, I almost wish I would have thought of it.

A sympathetic ear.

re: still in love? - 39

I know how you are feeling but I know as much as you want him to change he probably won't. I know my ex never did or never will but he is no longer my problem and someone else gets to have the heartache that I once had. It's a cycle they will continue until they figure themselves out, unfortunately men can't be alone like women can so they never have the time to heal. Emotional abuse is much worse than physical...the bruises take much longer to heal and people don't understand because they don't see those bruises. Hold your head up high, be proud of who you are as a person and know that you deserve better. I have finally met someone who will love me the way I deserve and not give me empty, broken promises and lies. If this man tells you that you are crazy, did things wrong and are to blame....know he is only saying those words to make himself feel better....major red flag of an emotional abuser. I don't know you but I am sure you are "above" him.

Good luck!
