Who: My mom (that dear, dear woman), the 6.5 year old (who, surprisingly enough, ended up being an excellent box hauler) and me
What: The Godzilla Garage Sale
Where: My overflowing garage
Why: Because we should have had one about
a year ago 2 years ago 5 years ago before we moved back to WI
When: Officially June 11-12. Unofficially, until it's mostly gone (every weekend until July???)
How: You mean like "How did we end up with so much stuff for 2 small humans?" I can only respond with the following:
There ought to be a law.
I should have my head examined.
Money should be withheld from me.
How did all that fit in our basement?
What was I thinking?
It's ok to say "no thank you" if someone wants to give you something.
They'll make more. (i.e. You don't need to buy every good deal you come across.)
Girl stuff is sooooo cute.
Unfortunately, there's more where that came from. We're prepared for Christmases, birthdays, Easters, St. Nicholas Days, and pretty much any Sunday-Saturday "I'm bored" days for the next, oh, let's just say 3 years.
Surely there's a support group for that, but I'd probably skip out on the meetings like Lindsay Lohan.
You know what's sick? I'm still going to "T H E" garage sale to end all garage sales that I look forward to each June. This year I won't let my husband take off of work, though, so I can spent 4.5 hours digging through other people's
junk stuff. I'm planning on hurrying through like the devil was on my tail.....or at least a block or so behind me. Look at it this way, it's a good test of my restraint.
Alright, alright. Just strap the ankle bracelet on me now.
