Runnin' on Fumes

I stretched myself way to thin this weekend and am thrilled I actually made it through it. I've had big plans for a yard sale for a while now and realized if we didn't have it this weekend we wouldn't be able to for another 3 weeks at least. The pile of junk sitting atop my steps was just making me angry. Not only did I want to have a yard sale but I also wanted to Clean Sweep my garage while in the process.

Thursday I start to not feel so hot. Sore throat, allergy feeling. Not Good! Friday was Brynn's 6 month appt. (I will post about her later). So I get up, drive Logan to school and get back home in time for Brynn's nap and the Clean Sweep began. Our garage was Horrendous to say the least!! Josh and I got about 1/3 done before we had to go for her Dr. appt. at 10:45. A few shots and some crying later and we're headed back to finish. Garage gets done then comes all the yard sale organizing.

I had planned on having our old neighbor come for a sleep over and only planned on having 1 kid but his 4 yr. old brother really wanted to come too so how could I say no. I also had to get their things for the Lemonade Stand ready. Then my cousin calls and says she is coming to town and wants to meet for dinner around 8. I have to go because I hardly ever see her.

I am SO worn down by this point and I still have to get up at 5:30 AM for the sale.

I get some coffee down my throat Sat. morning and feeling like I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (I rarely drink coffee). Kids are selling Lemonade, we're trying to sell our junk and I'm trying to keep Brynn happy...mind you she's just had shots. Plus my throat is still sore. I HAVE to lay down or I will not make the wedding we have to go to that night. So Brynn and I take a nap and Josh keeps the boys til their parents get them at 2. Then we're up and getting ready for the wedding which I have to miss my nephews 2nd birthday for. The in laws are keeping the kids thank goodness!

The wedding was probably the best one I've been too. She's in a sorority and him a fraternity. So basically a big frat party. After their vows the bridal party (13 bridesmaids and 13 groomsmen) seriously walked back down the aisle to "Walk It Out" and danced the whole way!!! Why was I not in this wedding!?

Finally we get home around 10. I was supposed to drive to Smithville today for my little cousins skating party but I could not bring myself to do it. I took a nice long afternoon nap and feel refreshed. Finally! Here's a few Yard Sale shots...
