Well, I slept better last night than I have in the past several days. I actually fell asleep shortly after 10 PM and didn't wake up again until Jaden woke up at about 6:30. It was VERY nice to finally get some rest.

This morning, the garage sale was VERY slow. Absolutely no one came during the first two hours and then a few people trickled in. By 11 AM, we had only made $10 (the sale started at 8 AM again). But, at least I had a nice relaxing morning to catch up on my Yahoo Group reading and my journaling. :-)

The rest of the day was equally slow, but we did end up making $67.70, so it was worth it. It was funny - we actually made $10 after we had already packed everything up and were loading it back into the garage. I was wheeling the old TV stand (which we had books on during the sale) back into the garage and someone pulled into the driveway with a truck. They asked how much we wanted for the stand. Since we hadn't really had it in the sale, I asked Scott what we should sell it for. He shrugged, "$10?" We figured they'd try to talk us down from there, but they didn't. So, we made $10 after the sale was already way over.

Overall, we ended up making $571.3o! I was definitely happy with that number. Hopefully we'll make even more in a couple of weeks at Carol and Mike's sale. Carol has been super nice the past few times I've spoken to her - a bit of a change from the somewhat chilly response that we got from her when we first move in. It's not that she was ever rude - she just didn't seem to respond much when we tried to connect to her. I kind of wonder if the change in her has anything to do with the fact that she saw the sign about us adopting Noah. I don't know for sure, but she has definitely been suddenly friendlier.

I went to mom's night out tonight with my friends from playgroup. It was good to see everybody, since it's been awhile since we've been to playgroup.
