It's Been Crazy and I Love it!

So since we last posted, we have celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary, our nephew's first birthday, Dane's 5th birthday, Labor Day, a "Big Boy" Shower for Isaac, and been collecting and picking up items for the garage sale.  I (Patty) also did a quick run down to Portland for my last "girl-time" last weekend and had some R&R. :)

So what else have we been up to...collect and pick up, and pickup, sort, clean, collect, yes, that's what we have been doing!  We have collected items to date of over 35 families, our basement is the storage area for clothing and other "cloth" type items, our upstairs guest bedroom is where we have put the over-flow items that haven't been sorted yet, the basement guest bedroom is where we have been putting our items for months, the garage is stacked up, but sorted and organized, and we have a week and a half to go.  We have raised over $300 from items we have been able to sell on Craigslist, and just picked up some more items are going to be listing too!!!

This weekend we are going to {hopefully} finish sorting, price, make our last pickups, place our ads and get our "workforce" in place.

With all of this craziness, it's easy to see how we haven't posted lately, and we think it should help with our transition with Isaac, because we have about 6 weeks of things to catch up on after the garage sale, and who really knows what it will look like in a week and a half, but then after that the holiday season will start, so it looks to be non-stop until we begin 2012, but we wouldn't have it any other way!

If you have any items you want to donate or schedule a pickup, email us right away so we can get you on our schedule!  Pick ups are ending on 9/20 so we have time to sort, clean and price it all!

Thanks again for all of your support!
