yawn....

The week has ended and I don't feel I have much to show for it. No new pictures or special projects to share...no funny stories either...just exhaustion!

I've been preparing for a killer garage sale. It's a bi-annual thing here...a group of gals get together for a BLOW OUT designer kids clothes sale. Not exactly a "haul the rubbermaids full of wrinkled clothes to the curb" kind of shindig. So I spent all week ironing, pricing, ironing, hanging, ironing, organizing. Did I mention I hate to iron? Did I mention I had so much to get rid of it was shameful?

The final tally isn't in yet. The sale continues through tomorrow. But I do think I have made close to $800. Not too shabby. Although I did SHOP the sale too and I made an impressive dent in the size 6 selection. I can't deduct that from my earnings though or it wouldn't sound nearly so impressive.

On a side note. I spent the rest of the week trying to figure out why S is REFUSING TO EAT? That's right...my Chunky Monkey would NOT eat ANYTHING! After several calls and a trip to the Dr. we have determined that he was reacting to a change in formula. I had recently switched him from the UBER expensive Nutramigen to Soy. Yeah...Mr. Picky Pants doesn't seem to be able to tolerate it. Good thing I did my shopping THIS WEEK! No more fun money for this mom!

Off to find SOMETHING to photograph...I'm feeling blogger guilt....
