Been a very busy summer. I keep hoping things will slow down but not yet. Maybe after Monday. Monday is my last day of daycare. At 1:00 p.m. that chapter of my life will be over. I gathered and cleaned all my daycare things that I have used for a lot of years. I had almost 400 kid books alone. Hubby would say,” Do you really need another book in the house?” Guess he was right. I had quite a library. But I love books, especially kid books. After I cleaned out the toy room, the toy pantry, a large shelf in the kitchen, baby furniture stored upstairs, high chairs, strollers, outside toys etc., I had one side of the garage full. Decided I didn't really want to sit out there a whole Saturday selling so I decided to sell all of it as a huge lot. I hoped someone starting out would want it all. Swap sites on Facebook are very popular right now. I spent one evening joining about 5 different sites. On Saturday, I took put similar items together, took pictures and posted. Within two hours I had everything sold as one huge lot. A young gal was opening a daycare and took it all. And I was only thirty dollars shy of my asking price. What a relief that was. Still have a crib to get rid of, needed it till Monday, but I am not concerned about that. Daughter no.4 and family came home last weekend and painted the toy room for us. Hubby had put Kilz on the blue but not the yellow. Well, I guess he should have because the whole room took two coats. Boy, are they good painters, even the two girls. Did a great job.
Check out the before and after pictures.
I am going to miss the daycare kids and parents but at the same time, I am really excited to have my days to myself for the first time since I was a kid.
Have a relaxing weekend,
