So Friday and Saturday was the big sale. We spent a lot of time preparing, planning and collecting donations to sell. Our house looked like a hoarder's dream come true for about a month. But we are so glad we did it. We thought a good turn out would be if we made $400 or $500. Turns out we made a little over $1400 just from those 2 days. That is not including things we presold. Some people (including strangers) just came out to donate money. Some of them bought a few cheap items and paid extra. Some people came out just to share their adoptions stories with us and offer encouragement. The amount of help that we had was very generous as well. People made sure we had tables, clothing racks, friends and family stayed the whole day to help us set up and then clean up and someone even let us borrow their home and yard in a very nice, busy subdivision so we would get a lot of traffic. Yes, it was a lot of work, it was very stressful and it was very worth it. We are $1400 closer then what we would have been. We still need about $1800 before we will br able to sign our contract and get our homestudy going, but we are on our way. If any of you are thinking of doing something like this I say go for it.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
