Why do I do this?

An update from the garge sale trenches...

Every time I have a garage sale I wonder what could have possibly possessed me to think it was a good idea! I have about 2 hours left to go and still have WAY too much stuff here! Like the dresser and nightstands and couch and chair that were the whole impetus for the sale in the first place! Oh well, some of the stuff is gone and Bryn has made $15 so she is thinking this was the best idea ever!

We are headed over to the in-laws this afternoon to begin retirement festivities. Aaron's dad is retiring from the ministry after a whole lot of years (I have no idea exactly how many!) and the church is having the party tomorrow. He is super excited about retirement and has been grinning form ear to ear about it for the past month or so! He loves what he does, but has been worn out by this last appointment. Unfortunately not even churches are immune to politics and squabbles and Jim will be glad to not have to mediate anymore.

I suppose I better get back to the hard sell and get rid of all my stuff...anyone in the market for some furniture?

Hope the garage sale went well, let us know :) They are a lot of work but to me, it's always nice to get stuff cleaned out and find it a nice new home.

The retirement party sounds like fun, hope everyone has a great time. Sounds like he's ready for some R&R :)

So, did the big stuff go? Sure hope so!
I'll bet Bryn thinks $15 is a fortune, huh? The boys would be ready to have a garage sale every weekend!

I'll bet Jim's ready to retire! My dad was the same way. And when he retired, he turned into a whole new man! Hope you all have fun at all the festivities!

Just me again. Just wanted to let you know you've been "awarded", so stop by when you get a chance.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

I wonder if that furniture is the sort of thing you might be able to get rid of using Craig's List...
