Last night my niece was in a car crash. The roads were wet and another pick up truck pulled out in front of the pick up truck she was in. Thankfully she just had some deep bruising and is sore, but nothing broken and everything should heal within the next week. It is a clear reminder to slow down when the roads are wet!!
My sister went out of town this weekend and needed someone to babysit her lab puppy. If you have ever been around a lab puppy they are like having a toddler around. In my case I have 2 (one 4 legged and one 2 legged) and they are wilder when together! I knew my house was slightly messy with all the stuff going on in my life, but have been on a steady cleaning binge since he got here. He steals dirty clothes left on the floor, chews on toys left on the floor, stole the neighbors branches they recently cut down, brought trash in from the outside, and is scared of the dark. Other than that he has been a pretty good puppy, but the extra work reminds me how much I am not ready of a dog of my own.
Today we went to Wichita Falls and dropped off items people purchased. It was enough to cover all the prior baskets and then some. So starting tomorrow I will be doing a garage sale and selling all remaining items for $1 or 10 for $1. Half of everything I make from tomorrow on will go to supporting the animals in Electra, TX. I am working on cleaning out half the garage so I can keep it stocked up on items to sell. This way my house doesn’t get cluttered but will be able to make money and donate money to a good cause. My sister is going to bring me her garage sale items too. Sunday the 8th I will box up all of the unsold clothes and donate it to the Faith Missions in Wichita Falls. It is an awesome charity that helps people, and was willing to help me when I first moved up here.
