One down, one to go...

Today was the first day of our two-day moving sale. Granted this picture was taken before we technically opened, but this is pretty much what the scene looked like all day. We had a little action in the morning for a while, mostly from the two kids next door. They probably spent about $20 between the two of them, coming back again and again to spend another dollar. Then we hit a HUGE lull in the afternoon. I definitely haven't been raking in the dough today, but I did at least make up for the ad I put in the paper (plus a little more). That's always good.

Here's the thing, though. I had four Garage Sale signs that I posted on various corners to attract buyers since we're off the beaten path a bit (dead end of a dead end). I went out this evening to find two of them (which were on opposite corners of the major crossroads near our house) completely missing. That stinks. No wonder we hit a lull in the afernoon; people had no idea how to find us.

Well here's to a more productive second day! Hopefully people will be willing to brave the heat and come on out.

Don't ya just love garage sales? Anyone who knows me knows that if we lived anywhere near you, I would've hit yours! I'm pretty sure 90% of mine and my children't clothes are from garage sales, 2nd hand stores, or Goodwill. What can I say? I'm Dutch!

Melissa & David,

It's so good to hear from you. Yes, we're very busy but having lots of fun. I keep thinking that one day I'm going to have it made because my kids will be doing the cooking and cleaning for me. Or maybe I'm just living in a fantasy world?
Wow, you're moving to Minnesota! I remember when you were talking about moving to Arizona. That was before David. I didn't think I'd ever want to live outside Indiana and look where I am now. Weird! It's funny how God works things out. You both look great by the way!

We're moving to Woodbury, Minnesota. (As soon as we sell our house and find a new one in Minnesota). We're doing well, but will be better once our transition is complete. Good to hear from you, Nate!
