Windy City

I should start off by saying I'm surprised nobody blew away today. We've had some ridiculous wind lately—I'm talking 70-mile-an-hour gusts and 30-degree weather. And needless to say, this was not an ideal setting for a garage sale. But, we went about our sleepy ways and started setting up at 6:30 am.

And before we knew it, people started showing up!




I know the pretty blue sky can be deceiving, but believe me, it was windy! Some of the things weren't selling as quickly as we'd like and since ALL of the profits from the sale were going to my fundraising, I couldn't risk selling things at 50% less than what we were already asking. So I went to Craigslist, posted a whole bunch of stuff and actually had people respond and at my house ready to pick up their new items!

All in all my fundraising pot now has $450 more dollars in it! I'll reach my goal sooner or later. If it was a nicer day we probably could have sold more, but we did what we could.

As for right now, I'm pooped and the 14 miles I'm supposed to walk tomorrow is looking extremely daunting. This wind has completely drained me and if I feel the way I feel now, tomorrow morning, I may do seven miles tomorrow instead.

Wow, great job! Boo to the wind, but it seems you did great in spite of it!
