The irony of blogging of course, is that when you have something to say, you are too busy to blog; when you have lots of time to blog, you have done nothing to report. Or so it goes for me.
This was a busy weekend for me. Friday I worked setup for the Canton Mothers of Multiples Club semi-annual sale. I then got to shop the pre-sale starting 8 p.m. Friday. I had a short list of things I was looking for, including Easter outfits, swimsuits, and a few toys for Tommy like trucks and balls. My kiddos are definitely not lacking for clothing, but I think I managed to buy almost as many clothes as I took to sell.
Here's a few views of the sales floor...
more baby gear and toys...
more than 30 double and triple strollers...(we had to start double parking them because we ran out of room)
and yes, someone even sold a huge fire truck
and lots and lots of clothing
I returned at 2 p.m. on Saturday, just at the end of the sale, to pick up my leftover items.
This was all that remained. The official tally was 7053 items sold!
Unfortunately I had a trunk full of unsold items. Newborn items are the most difficult to sell because people bring so much of it to sell from all of the gifts that we receive at showers. And most of the people giving them gifts are buying new rather than used items. Makes sense I suppose. I think I probably about broke even. My kiddos have lots of new toys to play with, a swing for outside, and Christmas gifts hidden in the upstairs closet now.
After picking up my leftovers, I FINALLY met up with Wyatt
and introduced him to his newest cousins.
We went to IHOP and were joined by my sister Lindy (Wyatt's mom),
her daughters Phoebe...
and Phoebe's friend Lori...
Because I am now blogging, I took a picture of my dinner.
Just in time, as you can see it almost got stolen by that pesky cattle rustler.
Yum... stuffed french toast!
Tommy and Ellie definitely enjoyed eating out...
with the big kid silverware...
All in all, a great day.
Especially nice to see Wyatt again.
And while I blog, I am missing Sunday nap time.
Don't know how long this blogging thing is gonna work for me!
