Last week we got rained out, but today is the today Sis and I are setting up for the big yard sale. She swears she isn't taking part, but I know better. I can guilt her into it. :)
Since we've 'combined' households, we have tons of things we no longer need, so I'm hoping someone sees our junk as their treasures. I can't imagine that they wouldn't. *lol*
Usually, this would be a dreadful chore, but having my youngest sister as part of my life is a blessing. We've bonded closer than we ever have, shared feelings that we've not shared before and we laugh constantly. They say, "laughter is the best medicine." If that's the case, we are going to be healthy for a long time to come.
I'm very happy to report that our Mom's surgery went well. During her routine colonoscopy, a tumor was discovered, and although we feared it was Cancer, it wasn't. The growth was removed and a bowel resection done, and, on Monday, she left the hospital to recuperate at my Aunt & Uncle's house. My brother assured me she would be going home with him, and I believe his exact words were, "this is a fight she won't win." I see Mom's much stronger than he expected. *smile*
When I moved to Tennessee, I hoped Mom would want to come here and live with me or at least in the general area, but she's always preferred to be closer to her daughter who lives in California. I'd like to say it didn't hurt my feelings, but I'm only human. I think we always assume we are the favored child. Go figure! *lol*
I'm certain my Aunt and Uncle wish she had moved here so I could be the one taking care of her and her two pesky dogs and one-legged bird. I wish I was, too. Thanks to everyone who prayed for Mom. I appreciate your plea for help on her behalf, and I'm happy to say, it worked!
Well, I'm off to start pricing and displaying...and nagging my sister until she joins me. Wish us luck! While we work, we're going to practice our bartering skills. Next, I'll have to think of where to strategically place the signs so people can find this 'end-of-the-season' blow out.
