Garage Sale Hell

I REALLY want to blog, I've taken alot of pictures lately, we've done alot of things, I have things I want to brag about, things I want to complain about, but I just don't have time. I'm in garage sale hell.
For those that do not know, I am hosting a fundraiser garage sale at my home on July 7th & 8th. I have asked people to donate their items, and although not that many people have, the people that did, DID. Trying to sort, wash, tag, fold, hang and display is soooo much more complicated than I had thought. Originally I figured I could set up my 2 card tables in the basement and utilize our ping pong table to help organize....no. I now have a table in my bedroom, 2 eight foot tables in my garage, one six foot table in my garage, two poles beautifully hung, thanks to Brian and boxes upon boxes in my garage. I'm in garage sale hell. Fortunately, I am so excited about the sale I could spit. Each item I tag, I think about the donation that it will bring in and that makes it all worth it. Truly. Sooooo, tomorrow, I'm off to pick up a few more items, yes on the fourth and then I can continue on with this garage sale business until the doors open on Friday at 8am.

Happy Fourth!

Is there a flag hung at your house? Just curious.
