I don’t know what others consider a success. I read the books on them and folks make $200 or more at them. I cleared over $100, spent a day with my best friend and her family and had fun. After the sale Beloved came and loaded up my empty totes. (All unsold items went to a charity store). I took him to lunch and spent my afternoon in a nap!
The down side was I got over heated and felt a little sick for a couple of days. Other than that it was awesome. I got rid of a lot of stuff I finally admitted I would never use. Other folks got bargains on things they liked or maybe even needed.
I took 12 totes and came home with one less than ½ full.
Still feeling the loss of my Father in Love. I am afraid I will be feeling this for a long while yet.
This weekend we head to his house for round 2. I think once we get these things done it will be easier to work through the missing him.
My youngest son had a car accident the night of the viewing. He has been told his car is not repairable…. So now he is looking at getting a new to him car. He and his dad visited the first dealer last night and the one thing they walked away with was, they will not look there. The sales people were rude. This son also begins a new job in September. He is my baby boy and he will turn 26 this year!
My oldest son is doing well. He actually asked for help in cleaning his house the other day and has managed to get his roommates to help him keep it clean!
Can you tell I am proud of my sons? The Lord has blessed me richly with my family.
So how are things on your homestead?
