garage sale finale: $450 and the introduction of swelling.

having a two-day garage sale in 100-plus-degree temperatures at 38-plus weeks pregnant is not a good idea.

but $450 and the elimination of an inordinate amount of junk makes it a pretty close call!

yes, folks, you read that right. i laid all my trash out on my driveway and people paid me to take it home! a whole $450!

add to that, like, 12 hours of talking with girlfriends while making money on trash, and i don't really know what could be better.

my feet are quite swollen, however. i'm not a girl who swells during pregnancy, so this is new for me. i would like to say that if i had to deal with swelling for a whole, or even large part of, pregnancy, i think i'd go nuts. hats off to you who endured. or will have to. hehe.

anyway.. i'm exhausted now, but i'm happy i did it.

happy it's over.

happy, fat, tired pregnant woman.

that's me.

with puffy feet and $450 in my pocket.

It was hot, I mean fun, no hot was right. Thanks for including us. The hanging out part was nice.

I hope you start feeling better soon...translation - the baby comes.
