Have you ever had a night where you dreamed so vividly and so vigorously that you don't feel rested when you wake? That's me right now. I suspect that a good portion of my sleeplessness was caused by this:
That would be half of my garage, covered in bags and bags of clothing and other random items, with a few large pieces of bedroom furniture thrown in for good measure. (Oh, and I love Maren cheese-ing it up in the background!) My neighbor Alice is organizing a yard sale to help the teenage girls in our church raise money for Girls' Camp. Last night was the deadline to drop off donations and as they completely filled her garage, we volunteered space in ours to help out. Alice said that several people asked if they could still drop off things today so it looks like the pile in my garage may grow! This afternoon all the girls are coming over to price things and then this evening there is a "preview" sale for ward members before the big sale officially begins tomorrow morning.
I would be lying if I didn't tell you that it took all the restraint I had not to be over there pawing through the boxes helping the girls sort last night, but I kept my nosey self out of there. Heck, if I thought the bags in my garage held more than clothes I'd have probably been in there until the wee hours of the morning! I will offer my help this afternoon if they need me--I have to be here to open the garage anyway, and I think that the organizers received much more stuff than they anticipated, so an extra pair of hands might be appreciated. Maybe I'll find a few treasures, or at the very least a few interesting photos for my blog!
You still have 3 hours to leave a comment on this post to be entered in this week's drawing! Right now I'm off to do some glittering on a little extra treat for the winner. :)
