AWESOME yard sale day!!

I am so blessed. Today my neighbor's daughter (who babysits for us a good bit now) offered to watch the kids for me and her mom to go yard saling. It was just such a blessing to be able to go and chat with a friend and walk around at the sales. We met up and caravanned with my other die hard buddies, Lisa, Aimee and Amy.

Normally it's pack up the car the night before with the dvd player, snacks, lunch, drinks, toys, extra clothes, etc. Move the kids seats around so that Leah and Madi and closer to me just in case, knowing the fighting that will begin once they realize they are next to each other. Having to stop 15 times to go potty. Only being able to do drive by's at the sales. When I do spot something, I put Mackenzie on guard. She has to lock the door and honk if anyone bothers them. Listen to them screaming from the car while I look at one shirt before being embarrassed by the screaming and the potential threat of DFACS and heading back to the car. Yelling, crying, threatening, reaching, pulling, etc. Every time saying, "We are never going to another yard sale again!"

But not today. It was awesome! Mackenzie and Kayla (my neighbor's other daughter) came with us and we had a great time.

Great job!! We have a sale to do this weekend, but I have yet to get out the firs thing I want to sell... I should be in a de-cluttering mode right now, but I have no motivation. Hopefully, the nesting phase will kick in sometime this week.
