The garage sale is OVER - hooray! And even better, most of the stuff ended up being sold and the rest is going with the church mission group as the reservation they are going to is trying to open a thrift shop! We had a crazy last hour and a half in which we sold well over half of the stuff I was lamenting about at the time of my last blog! Bryn made $43 and is thrilled! The only furniture we didn't sell was the couch and chair (the only decent furniture we had - go figure), but I am going to try Craig's list (thanks for the suggestion Dawn!), so hopefully it will go, too. I am VERY glad it is over.
The retirement festivities were fun and Jim is excited to be officially retired. A lot of his and Sherry's old friends and/or parishoners came in and a lot of family was there. I suspect we will be seeing more of them now that they have more free time on their hands.
Bryn started zoo camp today and had a load of fun. It was evidently bug day and they learned all about bugs, held and caught some and did bug crafts. She didn't like waking up early to make the 45 minute drive to the zoo, but she thought it was worth it in the end. I forgot my laptop (I had planned a nice relaxing morning drinking a decaf latte and catching up from the weekend) and had to find a way to spend 4 hours hanging out without spending all of my garage sale proceeds! I succeeded in the end, but will not forget my laptop for the rest of the week!
