The yard sale was a huge success. In six hours, almost everything sold, I managed to get a horrible v-neck t-shirt sunburn tan line, we met a lot of fascinating people who thought my junk was awesome and we managed to bring in a lot of cash. I love yard sales.
My house is now bare. Well, almost. Living room and dining room and patio furniture are gone. Bunk beds and bookcases are sold. What’s left is a tiny vintage 4 person table and chairs, my desk (I have to work), our bed and dressers. The boys are in sleeping bags on the floor and loving it. TVs mounted, video games hooked up and internet is accessible so all is well in their world.
I’m exhausted. My body is sore. I think I’m nursing a bit of a hangover and food coma too. After the yard sale we went to a Dortmund vs. Bayern soccer party with Trace’s soccer team. Brats, beer and kraut were an excellent post-sale meal along with some relaxing time by the pool (in the shade thanks to my v-burn). This past week I miraculously managed three girls nights out, more than I typically manage in three months. A wine tasting fundraiser, movie night to see Gatsby and last night a “Thank God 6th Grade is Over” party with great friends, delicious food and wine.
Today I’m laying low. I need a day of rest. Pedicures with my girl on the agenda and planning our weekly menus for our final meals in California.
Enjoy your Sunday, get some rest.
