Moving sale is over!

| | Comments (5) | TrackBacks (0)

And we did pretty darn well. I don't know what I would have done without Leah and Anna helping to get everything organized. They are good friends!

I was pretty sick of people as a whole by Sunday morning - no, I was sick of people by Saturday morning! They are so rude and annoying at moving sales and garage sales.

One lady kept messing with an antique (a truly antique end table) and knocked it over twice - the second time, I said to Anna - next time someone does that I'm charging them for it! The klutzy lady ruining the antique and her husband stalked off, saying, ' I WAS going to buy it". Yeah, right, she maybe was going to buy it until she added a couple of dings to it!.

I thought it was so funny that people would want something special for their $1 knick knack - like a sack to carry it in or something. ARGGHHH!!!

I'm glad it is over. I still have a lot of nice things I want to try to sell. I think I'll try craigslist first, then ebay for the more expensive items.

Now, of course, I have a ton of things to catch up with here at home. Between all the baby keets ( we are up to 30 keets!), Darling's brood of 10 chicks, the 3 or 4 chicks that Helga has finally hatched and 4 little peachicks running around with their mama, Veronica, I am worn out making sure they get food, water and are properly sheltered - except for the peachicks - Veronica will not let them get any closer than about 20 feet. I just hope she can protect them as well as she did when they were still eggs!

Well, that’s over. Perseverance pays off, SWWBO. I know exactly what you mean about people wanting more than they’re paying for. YOu don’t walk into the ‘bargin bin’ store and expect the same perks as you’d get at Macy’s. Sorry, not gonna happen.

The one that kills me are the folks who want me to provide tarping for their cars when they want to haul soil and such off. Unbeguhlievable.

I was vaguely surprised by the number of… assholes.

Oddly enough, there was more than one per…

Some people in this world simply don’t care anymore. That bugs me more than anything Obama could ever try.

Not only do people not care, they don’t TRY anymore either. They don’t try to be better than they know they are.

I blame a lot of things. Diva-ism is one, though there isn’t a nice label to put on the male form of narcissism gone amok.

But, hey, there’s progress, and that’s what’s important here. One less monkey on your back, even if there is a gollum nipping at your ankles. ;)

I’m sooooooo proud of you!!!!!!!!!
