Yesterday started with a thunderstorm, which we thought was going to ruin all of our plans for the day. I had to get up early to take my daughter down to a friend's house so my daughter could sell some clothes at a garage sale. We don't have enough stuff here for us to sell, so that's why we opted to go sell my daughter's stuff at someone else's sale. It worked out well, my daughter made about $20. Whatever she didn't sell we donated. We had to pack up early as I'd been invited to a graduation party. So I spent the afternoon there, chatting with friends. It was nice. After I left that I took my boys down to get hair cuts, then brought my daughter to the thrift store so she could spend the money she earned on more clothes. She spent about $35 on more clothes although she had only earned $20, LOL. I also spent about $10 on a couple of tops. Now I'm broke until next payday! We have no plans for today. Tomorrow is the start of a new work week, and the day I have to give my notice as I'm starting a new job in a few weeks. Marching band will start up tomorrow as well.. so much for my slow season! What is new in your world?

How good your daughter must have felt selling some of her clothes. I laughed when she immediately went out to buy more. That's a girl for ya! You are a busy mom for sure! After you give notice, would it be possible to have your vacation a week earlier? They seem to owe it to you. I really don't know how those things work, because my vacations were built into my contract.

@DianneN I feel like I'm constantly depending on other people for rides for my kids. That's why I usually try to take band camp week off.. it is also VBS week so I spend my vacation running kids around. This will be the first week in years I haven't been able to take it off.
