Gonna Get Through It

The garage sale, that is.

So much time, this thing! We have so much stuff. But it has to be done, because we need money to bring home our boys.

So tomorrow and Saturday 8-3 come out to visit us. 5105 Taylor St in Davenport.

My kids are going to be selling lemonade and cookies to help bring their brothers home.

I'm going to be drinking coffee (probably laced with a bit of Kahlua if I'm being honest) and selling all of my kids' memories.

But my commune is back in action. Parents coming with a trailer to load all of our big stuff (beds, couches, weight bench, dressers, tables, Oh my!). Beth offering her able hands and organizational skills. My sister offering her garage, doesn't end.

And by Sunday hopefully we'll have a good start to our adoption travel expenses.

I wonder if everyone thinks their garage sale has the best stuff. I wonder if everyone has doubts that a single person will show up for their sale.

Maybe it's just me.

Maybe I need to get out more.

See you tomorrow and Saturday!

And I would definitely buy the lemonade!

Wishing you lots of good luck and buyers this weekend!

Good luck - I won't be making the drive. We're doing one if a few weeks for that blasted second trip - actually, for the first trip too.
