Wow. It's been quite a week. I spent all day Monday pricing my items for a children's clothing resale that I participate in. I am usually much more organized, but this time I was so sick that I didn't get anything done until the day I had to turn it in. Robert and I worked about 8 hours on preparing and ticketing the items. The sale was yesterday, and the work was all worth it. I made quite a bit of money on my children's out-grown clothing. The sale is 2 times per year and it is wonderful place to shop for gently used clothing, but also a great way to get rid of all those extra clothes. And best yet, they do all the work, I just prepare and price my clothing, they inspect it, put it out and sell it. I get 90% of my asking price. With over 1000 buyers, it's better than any garage sale I could ever have.
After this terrible sickness, I did go back to work mid-week. With the new schooyear coming up we have GOBS of work to do. My mom and I went in a worked yesterday for several hours and got a ton accomplished. This week will be crazy. My field trips are over, but we have something special each day since it is the last week. Tomorrow I get to make about 300 comes of cotton candy. What fun! I will be a sticky pink mess!
Last night Robert and I walked over to ChiliFest with the kids. They had a great time. Almost all the chili was sold out due to a larger than expected crowd, but Robert had some awesome white-chili made with chicken and white beans. The kids and I ate buffalo chicken and curly fries. There was a band later in the evening and McCartney danced until she was exhausted. We had to give both kids a piggy-back ride home becasue they just wore themselves out. The weather this weekend has been wonderful, not too hot and quite breezy. I think I'll take them to the park today and give Robert a break.
