So Much To Do

Dawn has been sick with bronchitis for the past couple weeks. She is now getting back on her feet and I am starting to feel a little under the weather myself but I am doing my best to ignore it.

We have had terrible weather here. It has rained and rained for several weeks and then we had record snow. Now the ground is so saturated that it is like a swamp outside. This all adds up to a very difficult situation for doing anything outdoors. We have so much to do and the clock is ticking. I am just an impatient person. I want the weather to warm up and dry up so we can get back outside and finish rummaging through the stuff in storage and prepare for more garage sales. We did have some success this month. We were able to sell the hot tub and piano. Those items were put on Craig’s List. We sold them We still have a few things left on there and may still add to it.

We have had people asked why we don’t call Goodwill or Salvation Army to come get this stuff. Well, the problem is some of this stuff has been boxed up for years. We have stuff that was Dawn’s parents and stuff that we had from the guest house and stuff we boxed up from the house remodel. We have to go through all the boxes anyway. Second of all, we want to sell what we can and put that money in our emergency fund. We can’t pull out of here until December anyway so why not take advantage of the time and sell this stuff and use the money to build our emergency fund. With little effort we have made free money!
