The big move
It's official, the tickets are bought, the house has been turned upside down, and we're having a yard sale this weekend (weather permitting). We plan to move to Hawaii on Valentine's Day!!! It's so soon and this has all been a whirlwind. I think once this garage sale is over, I will be able to think clearly, but right now it's a bit overwhelming.
Does anyone have any yard sale pointers? The layout of our yard/drive area is super tricky, I'm not even sure where to put the stuff, because I think the grass will be wet most of the day, but if people can't park in the driveway, I don't know where they'll park. Then there is the whole pricing issue. It's tough because most of our stuff is new (some of it hasn't been used at all...), we have only been married for three years and it was in storage for half of that. So we're selling things here we'll need to buy again in Hawaii, but yard sale people I'm sure won't care. I hope no one makes me cry, I'm not good at haggling.
If any of you friends and family out there are free this weekend, stop on by and rummage through our stuff! And if any of you are insane enough, you're welcome to help out as well! The sale is Friday and Saturday from 8am to 1pm. I won't put any more info than that on the net, but feel free to e-mail me if you'd like to know more.
Why are we moving to Hawaii? Lots of really good reasons! :) A big one is that it will be nice to be near my parents with baby #2 on the way. But we will miss our friends and family here (including those that live on the other side of the country or in another country), and those that are a quick 8 hour car ride away. We hope that you'll visit us, and I'm sure that we'll see our "mainland" friends more often there than we would have here, as it's always fun to have an excuse to go to Hawaii! :)
