I Think This Is A Little More Than 50% Chance Of Rain

Today was suppose to be our yard sale. We have been busting our butts to get everything in our house sorted into three piles: keep, toss, sell. Sounds like that show on TLC where they come in and clean out those horrendously messy houses, doesn't it?

Anyway, I successfully sorted out the three remaining spaces yesterday (our room, the bathroom, and the back closet) and took the final photo of the ridiculous pile of stuff that is currently inhabiting our outside shed waiting to be sold. From now on, if Nathan and I want to buy anything, we're going to take out that photo, look at it nice and hard, and then decided whether we actually need another piece of crap to schlep around. Here, take a gander yourself.

But don't hate us, remember that a big part of that is Marla's stuff as well.

Anyway, we were all ready and rearin' to go for the yard sale today. We had yard sale signs to put out, dots to put prices on for individual items, the alarm set for 6 am to give ourselves plenty of time to set up before the sale started at 9 am. We even had Carly lined up to take care of the boys for a couple of hours in the morning so we could focus on setting up. But this morning, when the alarm went off at 6 am and I looked outside, I was greeted with...

Yeah, no yard sale today folks. I know you can't really tell but it's raining pretty hard out there. This is the second time we've had to postpone due to rain.

A further bummer? Today was also suppose to be the huge Young Life yard sale, and usually it gets set up the day before and then a couple of the kids camp out next to the stuff so no one steals it. I'm really hoping they held off on setting up, but I'm not sure they did since yesterday was a relatively nice day. Major bummer dude.

It was also suppose to be our church's youth group yard sale AND the Soroptomist yard sale today. That makes for a LOT of disappointed yard salers.

So stay tuned, we may be having a yard sale in two weeks when I have another weekend off.

Weather permitting.
