Tackling My List

The List:

Promote my Giveaway only 3 1/2 more days to enter ~ speaking of ~ I never really specified a time ~  I will choose a winner after 12:00 noon on Sunday July 11th!!  =)

The rest of my List:

Price & organize Garage Sale items

Make Semi-Sweet Ice Tea

with one of the best British Teas available =)

(if you are British please look the other way I know this is a sin to you!)  =)

Stay cool in the rare PNW HOT HOT weather

the old fashioned way

b/c AC is not an option

when you only see SUN like this for 6 out of 52 weeks in a year!  =)

Fill out the kids passport renewal forms

Price Garage Sale junk stuff

Drink  ice tea

Find necessary documents to file said passport forms

**Sadly we are not planning a trip overseas… sniff… sob…sob…my kids were born in Canada ~ live in USA ~ have dual citizenship ~ thus need said paperwork to visit family across the border!  =)  moving on ….

Did I mention Price the Garage Sale Stuff   (hours and hours of fun!)

Clean house for before wonderful guests arrive for a 4 day stay!

Paint Toe Nails Hot Pink

What is your favorite color to paint your toenails in the summer?

Cry ~

because the Garage Sale items are not priced and organized yet and you are really tired and want to go to bed and it is hot and you are out of ice tea and the dog has been driving you crazy all day cooped up in the hot house trying to eat the fan cords that are all over the house and you wish you had AC when it was 90 plus degrees in your house for a few weeks out of the year… *ahem*  did I say that out loud?

All joking aside… I really need to finish my ice tea and start pricing all that stuff!   Hope y’all have better plans than I do today!  Alas… the upcoming weekend is full of fun times… don’t feel too sorry for me!  =)

    Here is hoping that you will sit down, with an ice tea and price all the items. Trust me, you’ll feel relieved when its all done.

    Have the kids help!

    I still can’t believe that you drink cold “tea” down there! So different than here.

    Have fun pricing. At least the $$ you make will be worth the effort!

    ORANGE! It cheers me up endlessly to have orange toes. 🙂 UGH! for pricing garage sale items. Horrible terrible job. And then at the actual garage sale, all day long you’ll be like “why didn’t I price that higher? Wow, I priced that way too high!!” There’s no winning. YAY! for good iced tea. I’ve actually been drinking it with no sweetener tho… it’s so refreshing!

    I have thought about having a garage sale, but they seem like such a hassle. Good luck with yours.

    My favorite color for summer is OPI Strawberry Margarita.

    The pricing is the most difficult part. I keep changing my mind!

    I paint my nails a different color every month! Right now I’m wearing normal pinkish red, but last month was bright green, and the month before that was bright blue!

    Good luck on that sale!

    Oh my, this sunshine is crazy! People have been aching for it all year so… we got it! Haha! I’m thankful we have a window a/c unit in our bedroom but I melt at work! Good luck w/the garage sale!

    Sweet tea is so yummy and my hubs favorite drink. He loves it.
    Good luck with all the garage sale stuff.
    I need to paint my nails again too.

    Don’t cry! Wanna know a secret? I’ve had a bunch of garage sales in my day and have never priced anything. We just wing it around here and “name that price” whenever we’re asked. Sure makes things a lot easier. Good luck!

    Hope your garage sale went well and that you are managing to stay cool. It’s very hot here today too. Enjoy your iced typhoo tea!
