Last weekend bore the first garage sale signs of the season – a grim reminder that we need to have one in about a month. Three growing children produce boxes of outgrown toys, clothing, etc. I’ve realized that I’ve outgrown some things as well. I have a whole shelf full of books which were read a good 12 times each, but have been gathering dust for ten years. It’s on to new interests in the reading department and time for this mom to show the kids that they aren’t the only ones who need to pare down their belongings.
My hope is that after this garage sale, we can rest for a few years until the next. I thought we’d get that break after the last one. Then a day after the garage sale my son brought a whole bunch of toys to me “for the next sale”.
