What We've Been Doing...

Hubby worked on the hot water heater today...yep, another story.  Well, let me tell you something.  I thought, simple job, right?  What was I thinking?  When he called and said, been working on this all morning, had to use a grinder.  Hot water heater and grinder, together,  just doesn't seem safe. 

I am so grateful the basement is not finished...he couldn't get the water to drain out the hose, you guessed it, he drained it in the floor.  This man causes me more work than five children would.  I'm not looking tonight!

Calls me at work, says it's not working.  Calls me again and said, it's working, I just crossed the wires.  Calls me again and said he fixed the water pressure...he left the horse water on all night.  Solution to the pressure problem...turn off the outside faucet!  AND the tractor is running!
What Beverly's been doing,
and Marcy
 and Hubby and me with Bev,
and Maria and Melissa, my darling daughters.
We all have been working
to organize
and price
and turn our chaos into a classic sale.
Tomorrow at daylight Marcy and I open.
Think we have enough stuff?
I have been helping Bev every night
after work.
I promise to catch up with all of you soon.

That is a HUGE building.

I don't see any junk there. But you know the saying, "another man's junk..."
Which is probably way it doesn't look like junk to me.

Hope the sale is doing fantastic!
