Yard Sale and Tales of Survival

We have been crazy busy. Not sure if I mentioned it but my dearest friend has cancer and recently had surgery. She lives about 1 hour away and we have been driving back and forth to help with household and babies. I love that we can help. This last week, we were able to spend the night with them which allowed Jordan to do some of the night feeding. Jordan is very good with taking care of babies.

Today we had a small yard sale where we charged $1 for almost everything, big or small. It was very slow at first and I was a little worried. My neighbor across the street had planned one too. She said she had advertised on Cr*igslist and at both ends of our street, so I thought that would bring a pretty good crowd. We both were out by 7 am trying to catch the "early birds" but we sat for 1 1/2 hours without 1 stop. We were both talking about not wanting to drag all of that stuff back into our home.~Smile~ Finally, people started stopping around 8:45 am, but not really buying. We started making sales around noon and ended up doing pretty well. Got rid of some big items that were taking up too much space.

I need to have a yard sale, or at the very least get a 1-800-got-junk truck over here, LOL. We have sooooo much clutter we need to get rid of.

I'm so sorry about your friend. She is very fortunate to have someone like you in her corner. I hope she gets well very soon. I'll be sending up positive thoughts for her.
