What a yucky day! Weather isn't sure if it wants to rain or not, but it's muggy none the less. *sigh* Would be nice if they'd get us our a/c unit and hook it up! Our poor animals are suffering and us 2 legged peoples aren't doing so well either.
Thinking I'll put stuff out at a yard sale tomorrow. Nothing too exciting, just some kids clothes, but I'd like to put up my vendor displays as well. Maybe hand out some flyers and cards. Never know where you'll get a sale!
Sunday I have a vendor event for a playground fundraiser. A bit further than what I'd like right now, but should get some sales since it's for the playground! I have to get busy with my hair clips. If I can do some clips this weekend, I can sell the Sunday. I should clean out my business closet to see if I can make room for other stuff I make. Mainly the bath stuff. No room for the dog beds here and I won't do the candy cakes with no upcoming shows - no need to tempt little man needlessly!! lol I'm holding off on signing up for more shows, just because I can never be sure if hubby will have to work weekends or not. Luckily there's some car show on Sundays I can do for exposure.
If anyone (all 3 of you, and anyone that tumbles across this) wants to check out my webstore, I have a store there named "Shelszoo". Right now it's my stuff with some teen clothes, and I hope to add more this weekend. Just have to sort the clothes taking up space in here so I can find the original clothes I took pictures of and get them listed. Then I can start taking more pictures, upload them and get them listed. Add in I'm looking for a night job, to help us make ends meet, and I'll be lucky to have any hair left by the time school starts up again. Oh, yeah, except I school at home! lol I guess I can work the night job until my sanity gives or I just sleep around the clock or something. As long as we can actually pay all the bills and have money for food and maybe put some away for our move, I'll be happy. Happier if people start buying my stuff on webstore so it gets less cluttered in here! *grin*

Why is it, no matter how organized I think I am, Monday's are crazy?? Doesn't help that the oldest child snuck out while everyone was sleeping. No note, no nothing. Yeah, I'm looking forward to moving and her being on her own! No more of her selfish antics to deal with on a daily basis!!
I managed to sell something on webstore, now I just have to find the box that I can use. My Priority boxes didn't come yet. I'd like to start listing some more tonight. See if I can manage to get everything I have pictures of listed. Then tomorrow I can concentrate on taking more pictures! I also have a bunch of stuff to try on. Since I lost weight, I have to try on pants again to see which ones are too big. Then I also just got a bunch at a bag sale, so I'll have to check which ones fit well and which can go. While I'd like to keep some smaller stuff since I'm hoping more weight follows, I just don't have the room to store any more stuff. So, it'll get listed and the money goes into the moving fund!
Looks like I have a show Saturday! It's a doggie adoption event - hoping I can make a bunch of good contacts there! If we have good weather we should have a decent turn out. Help me get my name out there a little more.
Spent some time trying to get relocation info for a couple different areas in SC. I have the Myrtle Beach info (I could probably tell you all about that area anyway! I'm always looking at sites for there! lol), but think we should look into a few other areas. See how the job market is, housing, taxes, etc. As long as I keep up with the decluttering, I'll feel confident about the move. Hoping to be able to pay up the storage units this weekend, then I'll get a new unit closer and start to clear out the original 2. I know the clothes in there are most probably a loss now. See what's trash, what we're keeping, what I can sell, what can be donated. Since Boo has a few days off from football, I can use his muscles!
Almost done school with Lex. Have to get her re-enrollment in, got Boo's in. Just have to call for a set for Cricket, have a print out for Zoe. Just have to start filling everything out! Got the littles some books to work in to help when school starts. Try to get them ahead of where they should be since I know they fell behind with all the hassles we've had lately -internet that keeps going down, having to move, and all that stress.
