Most of the stuff is cleared out but still have a few trips to thrift store...

Monday, July 18, 2011

I gave away quite a few things after the sale was over and junk man returned for more metal. items.

I overdid a bit and my ankles are swollen and back is sore...went to the gym and swam my usual 1/2 hour on Saturday and Sunday and I am sure that helped a lot.

Wrapped my legs last night and even though the temp is going to about 97 today with hgh humidity I will wear the wraps until about noon as my ankles were sore in addition to being swollen.

Daughter made it more thn halfway home last night and is now resting in a nice motel. I am so grateful she was able to hep me out.

Sunday...clean up garage sale leftovers...

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Need boxes...

There are still about 10 boxes of books among other things...

The junk man is coming back for all metal items this morning.

I hope to gradually get rid of the rest of the small stuff by making trips to the thrift store.. or they may come out to pick up all at once which would be great...

I took in almost enough to pay for the dumpster which is very good.

Hope my bruises and aches and pains go away soon.....

The humidity is so high we have fogged up windows on the house and this morning there was fog outside...

Daughter is leaving for Montana in about an hour...

    You might try taking the boxes of books to Goodwill. We have been trying to get rid of things (since we retired) for the past few years. I had a lot of books! Goodwill will take the ones that are in good condition and give you a tax-deductible donation slip. My husband took most of his metal junk to a salvage yard and got 10 cents a pound. Unfortunately though, we still have a lot of things left! emoticon

Don't do too much outside if the humidity is high! Stay hydrated! emoticon
Enjoy your Sunday and hope your daughter has a good trip!

Garage sale report...soggy again

Saturday, July 16, 2011

We had about 3-4 inches of rain yesterday but still took in quite a bit of money. Today is supposed to be sunny and hot and muggy but right now it is raining again. I have to go put up new signs as the others have fallen apart with the heavy rain. I will be glad when 4 o'clock rolls around and we can close shop.

My daughter will be going home either Sunday or Monday. I am sure she is not looking forward to the long haul home (1385 miles). It has been nice having her here in spite of her having to work while here. We did have a few laughs and played a few games of scrabble, ate out and shopped, too. She said she won't be coming soon again as the trip is just so long.

Thank goodness the sale will be over today and we can put some more items in the dumpster. I will have to make several full suv loads to the thrift store and then a trip to the hazardous waste center where I can dispose of electronics. emoticon

She is doing a bang up job cleaning and preparing for garage sale. We are getting rid of furniture and misc from house and garage (which has not been cleaned out in 27 years).

We have been busy... I am taking Thursday and Friday off from work this week.
