Four Dollars

Four dollars was the grand total of our sales for today’s garage sale!  We had two people come by in the four hours we were open.

We’re trying again tomorrow, and hopefully we’ll have more people.

We’ve still  having problems with our little Squeaky.  She’s not feeling well at all.  We have her two different types of antibiotics as well as several other meds.  It turns out the Clavamox antibiotic she took last time, with no problem, is making her sick to her stomach this time.  I got some anti- nausea medicine but it doesn’t seem to be helping as much as we’d like.   It’s been a struggle getting her to eat.  I feel terrible every time I give her the Clavamox knowing it is making her sick.

We are having to give her meds 9 different times a day.  I have a chart to keep track so that she gets the right medicine at the right time.  Socks also gets meds twice a day, so that makes 11 times a day we’re forcing something into one mouth or the other.  Poor babies.

Al is getting ready to head to Tampa on Sunday, so we’re trying to get everything done around here before he leaves.   We’re hoping the FHA appraiser will come by next week, but if the government shuts down, it may delay things there too.

I’m starting to get a little nervous about the sale.  It could all fall apart very quickly.  We’re anxious to get out of dodge and go somewhere fun! 


  1. That is to too bad. Not much reward for the effort.

  2. My fingers are crossed for you.

  3. Garage sales are a lot of work, sorry the return was weak today...good luck with it Saturday. Hang in there, things will work out as they are supposed to.

  4. I have been thinking about y'all. I certainly hope the government thing doesn't affect the sale. I'm sure the buyers are a bit anxious too.

  5. That's a lot of work for so little. Hope tomorrow goes a lot better.

  6. You just never know about garage sales and how you are going to do. Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

    Hope the kitties are feeling better soon.

  7. I am so sorry your little ones are sick. And I sure hope tomorrow goes great with the garage sale. No government shut down yet which is a good thing.

  8. Poor Squeaky - hope the kitty starts feeling better.

    Maybe you've reached the end of the garage sales. I remember the days when traffic flow slowed down and sales were minimal. Finally called a friend and they took everything we had left to try and sell at their house. At least it was finally out of our garage so we could start to get it cleaned up.

    It will hopefully all be over soon.

  9. Poor Squeaky. I know exactly how you feel. When we had Whiskey on the three different meds just over a week ago and she had the one day she was throwing everything up, we stopped with all the meds because she couldn't even keep them down. Next day she was able to eat a little and keep it down, in the afternoon we went to the vet's and she took Whiskey right off the antibiotics and lower the dosage on the other two meds. She seems to be doing better now.

    I remember having to try to get a pill down our cat's mouth once not fun! Hope things are going better. It is so hard when they get old.
