October 6, 2012 Garage Sale

I had said I was so overwhelmed with the garage and the whole garage sale thing and then the queen of garage sales showed up and got everything going.  Mary did so much work for the garage sale, she doesn't even walk in it, she just wants us to meet our money goal. 
 We worked til midnight Friday night to get everything out, set up and priced before the sale started on Saturday morning.  We had lots of stuff and used the whole driveway, side driveway and front yard to display it.

 We didn't just sell our items we helped people load them in the vehicles to take them home as well.  In fact Mary and I helped a lady load the dresser we had into the back of her truck.  As we lifted it into the truck bed a drawer fell out and broke....ooops!!  But Mary quick picked it up and fixed it and she went on her happy way.
 By the end of the day, we were tired and just waiting to clean up.  But before clean up could take place we had a little dress up time.

The day was a great success with us making $552 to help towards our fundraising requirements.  Plus Kimi, who is also on our team, had a garage sale over at her mom's house and raised $350 over there.

As of January 2009, I no longer have a job. It's not that I lost it, but after 26 1/2 years of working at the Post Office, I retired. According to everyone I know, I don't do anything all day, so I decided to start a blog. Now I can blog about what I don't do all day. I am married to Kevin, who is the most awesome husband I could ever have. It's because of him, that I do not go to work any more. I love that and I love him for that. Between the 2 of us we have 4 children. Hunter 31, Heather 29, Paul 28 and Alicia 26.
