Friday showers


Friday, June 20, 2014

Holy Cats pajamas!! i was up at four, drove all over the twonship tying mylar balloons to the signs we installed all voer the roadsides last night. I lucked out because it was so dark out, nobody was on teh raod, literally. I could hav ewalked out on teh interstate naked adn nobody but wildlife would have seen me.. Lucky for the wildlife, I was dressed and in ahurry.

Sale started at 8,m but of course people showed up at 7,,okay with me, more time for me to take possession of their $$$.. I made $20 last night from neighbors.. but today ti began to rain a couple hours into the sale.. When you live in the midwest, people do not let things like rain stop them from bargains and treasures. DD sold a dining room table and chairs her dad gave her, I sold lots of little things and had fun bargaining with people.. Got rid of a rug ex hubby gave me that I tripped over in May..I made enough money to make up for the pain and possible broken hip and embarrassment it caused.. We had to cover everything two hours early with a downpour, BUT the rug lady called and came a few minutes ago to buy the rug and an electric frying pan I had.. Okey dokey.. I have more things to put out tomorrow on a rainless day. so we will see...

I do know that I will never have another garage sale until we need to clear the parents house out... I did make enough money to make up for the three work days I too off for the sale, but my body told me last night that it will not allow me to do anything this stupid again...

    Lin, I know JUST what you mean about our bodies telling us what we can and can't do now! LOL the mind is willing but the body says, "NO"!

I am so excited for you! All those $$$ and I bet your customer were just as happy as you were! I wish I lived closer to you....I KNOW I could have found something and today it is bright sun and blue skies here so am hoping it is at your house too! Can't wait for today's results!

    At least you got rid of a lot of things especially what the ex gave you. I'm crossing my fingers that you get rid of more tomorrow.

    Garage sales are a lot of work, but the people who come always amazed me.
