Not too much exciting news to tell today, other than the fact that IT"S JUNE!, and we are recuperating from a yard sale we had over the weekend. I haven't had a yard sale in years, so I forgot about the effort it takes to get it done. But we fared pretty well, especially our daughter, considering we live on an out-of-the-way hillside in a very eclectic neighborhood--from nicer new construction to lower income apartments housing nationals.
The one thing I was amazed at was the fact that not one person dickered with me on prices. They either bought something or they didn't, but no price haggling. Actually it was sort of refreshing. Nothing peeves me more than when someone haggles over a 50 cent item.
So, this weekend we cleaned out a lot of clutter, and after a Good*Will run today, we consider this the beginning of our plan and preparation to move back to our home state, beautiful Colorado! We're shooting for next summer, if all goes well and as planned, and by the grace of God--and being in real estate we need a lot of grace!
We will be moving to Colorado Springs, which is at the base of Pikes Peak. I have my dad, mom, mother-in-law, one sister, three brothers (and of course all of their families), my Aunt and cousin and my best friend who all live within 1 1/2 hours from there!
One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 118:24--This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. I choose to be content and rejoice in every day the Lord has made. Even more so when we're 'chomping at the bit' to get back home to Colorado and at the same time making sure our 20 yr. old is settled in where she needs to be.
Happy Summer to everyone!
It's All COLORADO Good!
