Traditionally, people give something up for Lent.  I’m going to be different.  This year, I’m going to spend 4 hours each day of Lent in prepping the old house for a humongous garage sale and for putting on the market.  Two mortgages are a major pain in the rear!

I got a good start yesterday. Leah, one of Major’s sisters, and I cleared out half the living room, cleaned the floor and walls and today we will set up at least one table in the same area that we can use to display things we are going to sell.

Leah is very good at helping. When the garage sale happens, she is getting a good percentage of the proceeds, as I can’t pay her anything to help me now.

I pick her up at 10 am, and we work until about 2. Just long enough to make a dent, but not so long as to burn us out!!

After Ry did so much to help get John’s books from the old place to the new last week, I feel much more positive about the concept that we can actually empty the old house via Ebay, garage sale and probably an auction.
