How scary is that? This is the before photo of all the stuff I piled in Baby Gwen’s room for my horrible/brilliant idea to have a garage sale this morning. (I’m hiding out inside while Gwen naps and Daniel handles sales.) I decided we should have one Wednesday…which didn’t give us much time. But we are getting rid of SO MUCH STUFF.
Oh and if you’re worried that we’re getting rid of HP DVDs, don’t worry. That’s our EXTRA copy.
I even weeded out our CD collection. This one was a keeper, though:
You know what I’m talking about. Blue Album forever. (But Pinkerton is better.)
On the Bookshelf:
I finished my re-read of Brideshead Revisited. Still my favorite novel. It gets richer every time I read it. I can’t wait to do a post about what I learned from you during the Carrots Classic Book Club discussion of the first part of the book. And after this dang garage sale is over I’ll plan the next meeting!
NFP PSA ASAP: This Ain’t the Lyceum (Kelly is so right. I wish I’d learned NFP when I was still single. Of course, I didn’t know it existed then so….but if only.)
101 Mini Daily Goals, the Summertime Edition: K. Elizabeth Fleck (I am so inspired! I want to create my own. I also want to try harder to go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier now that the kids are sleeping past 6am these days. I could actually have some writing time in the morning!)
The 1 hour homebirth of John Charles: House Unseen, Life Unscripted (My friend Dwija had a SUPER fast amazing delivery at home. If you love birth stories, you’ll get a kick out of this one. Yay sweet baby!)
Slate, you are drunk. Adults should be reading YA: Modern Mrs. Darcy (A good book is a good book is a good book.)
Be sure to give some love to my friend and sponsors:
