This seems to be a typical seen for us Monday mornings, after a busy weekend. Brad hugs us all goodbye, if he doesn't have a 6am flight (which means he leaves at 4:30.... which means he gets up at 3:30..... UGH!!!!), and it out the door. I'm left picking up the pieces from a busy weekend, recuperating, and trying to get us all back on schedule.
40 bags in 40 days for lent and I knew that that was something I wanted to do this lent and what better way to start or get inspired than a spur of the moment garage sale! I grabbed a basket and started going throughout the house gathering things. Called my mom and got her to watch the kids Saturday morning and called my brother Kellen to get him to help move the big stuff. Things were falling into place, we had a few friends bring stuff over, and it turned out to be a huge success!!! We got rid of stuff, made money, made our friends money, and we didn't spend money on a trip to Tulsa!! Win win!
For now, I'm praying for a stress free week, happy kids, my test to write itself, and for this week to go quickly so I can start my much needed break and enjoy Spring Break with the kids!
