Saturday Garage Sale!

Did you know that you can put together a garage sale in one day?  However you will probably only get about 4 hours of sleep in the process.  We started out the week committed to the garage sale thing and then life got in the way and it was one thing after another and our "weeknights" were filled with other commitments.  So I thought, what the heck we will push this thing out another week since all we had done was tables set up and boxes and bags stacked haphazardly on the tables........when I brought it up to my hubby on Thursday, he uttered the words which sealed my fate "I have to take the tables back to work next week!"    Yikes, since I didn't want to push it out even further or continue to look at the JUNK really great stuff, I decided I had better get busy setting it up, making signs, pricing stuff, putting an ad on Craigs List, etc.

Fast forward to last night in the wee hours of the morning (2 am) - the garage sale stuff finally ready to go and I was ready to go to bed, but wait.......insomnia struck!  My brain was filled with thoughts of what I still had to do in the morning, thoughts of what I had to do later in the day with my Country Gourmet Business, thoughts of eating a cupcake (I know, I know - my brain is random, what can I say). 

Since I couldn't sleep I decided to try an old family remedy get up and eat that chocolate cupcake!  Fast forward an hour to 3am - back to bed I went and I think I finally fell asleep at 3:30 (I couldn't see the clock, my eyes were closed).  Then to my much (dreaded) surprise morning came very fast and I woke up at 6:45 am. 

Coffee, coffee where was it?  My wonderful hubby (who got to go to bed at 11:30 pm) was making some (love you honey).  I am now on my second cup and just about ready to face the hoards of human traffickers traffic who want to by my junk nice stuff!  Happy Garage Sale Day!
