Well we did it. Amber and I, along with help from many others, had a yard sale this weekend. It was finally time to rid ourselves of some of the bulk we had accumulated over the years. We did very well, despite the rain. We rid ourselves of much of the stuff accumulating dust in the crevices of our house and made a pretty penny in exchange. We were so happy with the turnout we have decided to join a friends yard sale with our leftovers next month. Updates will follow.
