Big garage Sale = Big Success

Wow what a weekend. We had our big garage sale which we've been getting ready for. some of our friends (Sean & Courtney, rented a Uhaul to bring over their stuff. We had TV's, a computer, entertainment centers, lots of clothes and a whole lot of other crap. Liek they say though, one man's garbage is another man's treasure. In all, combined, we sold over $1900 worth of stuff. We lost count on day two, so it could have actually topped 2K. We still ahve a small pile of stuff to send to goodwill, but wow....what a success. At times we had 1/2 hour periods where there were 30 people at the house. Cars couldn't even drive through the street because other cars were double & triple parked. We had stuff in the driveway, on the side of the driveway and spread out across our grass on tarps. There were times I wouldn't see Sean for 45 minutes because he would be over on the grass & I would be in the driveway.

The whole thing just blew me away.

Monday Musings

Got a somewhat good surprise yesterday (Monday). Nana & Papa took the kids camping for a few days. That means at least two nights of uninterupted sleep for mom & dad! Whoopeee!

Other than that it was a pretty normal Monday. Found out Marsha's sister is bringing out some stuff for the garage sale as well. I have no idea where we are going to put it. Our two-car garage is FULL already with garage sale stuff. I placed the ad in the paper so we are committed now.

Speaking of this weekend....I have to make it out to Quil Ceda Village sometime between our garage sale times. QCV is located about 5 miles from my house and the new 100 store outlet mall is opening there on Thursday. One store I specially want to check out is the Sony outlet store.

Weekend Tidbits

Wow what a weekend. I spent most of Saturday cleaning out the garage in preparation of our upcoming Mother's Day Weekend Garage Sale. I took stuff down from rafters, out of rubbermaid storage boxes and, mostly, out of black garbage bags (old infant clothes).

Saturday night we went to my Co-worker Val's house where 2nd place was the theme. I came in 2nd in the Cranium board game we played and 2nd (out of 6) in Texas Hold 'em. 2nd place Sucks.

Sunday morning started late because Nana & Papa took the two boys overnight Saturday night. I woke up around 9:30 am and went to Church. When I got back it was back to work....pressure washing the driveway & turning the old dog house into sandwich boards for the aforementioned garage sale. Later in the evening some friends came over with a U-haul full of stuff for the sale. They have a lot of stuff to sale...35 inch Sony Tv, Entertainment Centers, Air conditioner, Clothes, Blow-Dart Gun, you name it. the sale should be a good one.

A Bomb is a Bomb, Except When It Is A Burrito

This was just too funny, so I had to post it. Sometimes after I eat Burrito's I Let out a couple "bombs", but this is ridiculous!

CLOVIS, N.M. -- That's no bomb -- it's a giant burrito.
Marshall Junior High in Clovis was locked down after someone spotted a kid carrying an object wrapped in foil.
Police put armed officers on rooftops and closed nearby streets. But the security alert was lifted a couple of hours later after officers identified the suspicious object as a 30-inch burrito, stuffed with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos. It was wrapped in foil and a white T-shirt.
When it was all over, Principal Diana Russell said she didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Eighth-grader Michael Morrissey created the giant burrito last week as part of an extra-credit marketing assignment. He says the kids are now calling him "burrito boy."
