We thought the response was poor at 7 but by 8:00 we were in full swing with people almost fighting over things - we had it all priced so low. Still they wanted to bargain and that got really tiring as I was pretty much giving away a part of me with each item. Some of the shoppers were very rude and made it even more difficult.
I moved Jake's bed out to the lawn so that he could just lay in his bed during all the excitement but of course he felt the need to sniff each person who arrived! I mean Greet each person! At one point he was being so good and laying in his bed and would you believe that Kirby sold his bed right out from under him! Hair and all! I even had an offer of $300 for Jake himself! But I did not take it!
Everyone was gone by 11:00 and we were FINISHED!! We put the leftovers back in the garage and Habitat for Humanity will pick it up on Monday. Just as we were finishing, some sweet little girls from down the street arrived and wanted to rake the yard for just $5.00. I was loaded with cash right then and hired them on the spot. Just look at this team!
Then it was on to our new home. Kirby loaded the truck - again! This time we brought our wonderful IKEA chairs that we love so much in place of the stupid recliners that came the rig. And lots more 'stuff'! It will not all fit so I am purging again!
Last night we were so tired but also so happy. We are here! Our new life is beginning. It will be slow as we still have to sell the house - again, and I am still working. But our new life of adventure is about to begin! Wish us luck in selling the house soon so we won't be delayed!!
