Ok, I have got to tell you, I really thought only 4 people read this blog. And, there were so many comments yesterday and none of them were from the 4 people I know read it! I cannot believe it was the DUMPSTER that made you comment. It just made my day. I received a kind email thanking me for being "real" and she said that she appreciated knowing that I was real back when I taught at CKU and I am real now as well. It made my day. I am sooooooo real it might shock you all!!
Here are a few answers to questions I have been asked....
1) The dumpster was FREE because I work in construction for my dad now (since my parent's accident, I left the industry full time and help my dad in building new homes - my Mom used to run his office, now I do it for him) and we are sadly SO SLOW in home building that we had that extra dumpster just sitting in our lot. It seemed so much more efficient to toss stuff into it rather than bag it all and store it until garbage day.
2) If there is a rule against having a dumspter on your driveway, I guess no one has turned me in (yet)!!
3) I think it is leaving today or tomorrow. (So, if you live nearby and want to toss anything into it, or take a photo of your kids hanging off of it - you better come by quickly)
4) As of now, I do not plan on shipping anything that is in the garage sale (way too much effort on my part) or listing it on ebay. If it does not sell, it is being donated to the first charity that will come get it all.
Thanks for making me laugh, for reading this blog, too. I hope to post something NOT about garbage soon. Enjoy your day.
And, this photo was a joke.... Kal said something so my dad and husband pretended to toss her into the dumpster.... well, my three year old super sensitive daughter started SOBBING and screaming "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo do not toss my sissy in the dumpster!!!" She was a wreck. I took the photo THEN quickly put down the camera and comforted her in case you were wondering.
