Garage Sale

I'm in a hurry because I am busy pricing things for a garage sale tomorrow. I found out yesterday that my sister's subdivision is having a neighborhood sale. I asked her if I could bring some stuff because the kids and I had been planning to do a garage sale to benefit the Reece's Rainbow Adoption Ministry. Since our driveway is a steep hill, a garage sale at our place isn't possible. This didn't leave me much time to prepare, but I got as much as I could together, spending the entire day today, doing nothing but that.

Alex, Hannah, and Shauna asked if they could do a lemonade stand/bake sale to raise money for RR. I asked my sister, earlier today, if it was okay and she said yes and that her daughter would like to do it, too. I just got off the phone with her and she told me that she wants to split the money because her daughter doesn't want to donate hers to the orphans. I would be so ashamed of my kids if they acted like that. I told my kids about it and they were shocked and upset. Hopefully my kids will be a good influence on her tomorrow and she will change her mind. We'll see.

Please keep your fingers crossed for a good turn out and lots of sales!

I can't wait to hear how it turns out tomorrow! Maybe Nick will drive down for it; you know he has a tough time passing up a good garage sale...especially for such a good cause!

I'm trying really hard to keep my mouth shut about the lemonade stand/bake sale thing. I'm sure you know what I'm thinking, though! Ugh...
