Dismantling the store and all the fixtures that gave the four walls so much character and charm. Hosting a farewell luncheon for our contributors as they moved their pieces from the building.
The Store Closing Sale with our husbands(and their sharpie markers slashing prices).
Multiple loads to get all the remaining merchandise to our homes. Painting and cleaning day!
Still no rest for the weary, time to prep the family to head up north for Memorial Weekend at my brother and sister-in-law's cabin.
The weekend was a blast! No schedules to keep, playing cards late at night, lots of laughter, watching the cousins piled into the ski boat with their kneeboards and wakeboards as us oldsters floated near by in the pontoon. Lots of sun, and...
The million dollar question you've all been asking, "what are you going to do with all stuff that still remains from the store???". I'm gearing up for a large garage sale. I live in auction country, but I'm hosting a garage sale at our home because I want the stuff to walk away on its own. I'm a little tired of schlepping. I've been slowly pulling things from the attic above our garage, going through my paint stash and personal stashes. This weekend the real organization begins... it's time to attack the mass in the garage and decide what to keep and what to sell.
The tables come out and the set up begins for my last and final garage sale (I've said that a few times before).
Whatever remains after the sale will be taken to an auction house, craigslist, donated, burned or scrapped.
Then the next chapter of life begins and I can enjoy working on my own projects and deciding what's next for me in a career. So many thoughts and ideas swirl in my head, it gets over whelming at times. That's when I lay it all before the Lord and say "use me and my talents for Your glory".
