Anyway, I finally got everything organized this weekend, thanks to my mom. Luke ended up with the flu and just wanted to snuggle and watch tv all weekend. And he NEVER sits still, so as much as I really wanted to snuggle with him, I knew I had to get this done. So several hours later, I got eveything I wanted to sell, all in one place, and organized by size. Wheeew, what a task! Then I got to snuggle with my little one. =)
But now every night, I'm trying to tag and price two of those piles. Each pile takes me at least an hour and then somehow, I'm supposed to make up a spreadsheet of every item I'm selling in case anything gets stolen. They had about $600 in items stollen last year (although most were DVDs and video games), but still. They give you back the tags of the things that sold and then you obviously get back eveything that didn't sell and you are supposed to match it to the spreadsheet. You can claim anything that wasn't sold or given back and they'll refund you as long as you have a spreadsheet showing where it was marked before the sale.
Anyway, when all is said and done, I should bring home somewhere around $400-$600! I only need maybe $50 worth of clothes for Luke for this spring still and I'm not buying anything else from Brooke because I have a feeling my friends and family have gone WAY overboard on clothes for my shower next Sunday, so I need to stop myself from buying anything else for her. I honestly don't even know where it's going to fit! Regardless, the extra money can then be used to buy the few things I do "need" according to my mom, like pink swaddling blankets (apparently girls can't be swaddled in blue blankets), a few more cloth diapers, a moby wrap, and a few of the cute little outfits I've seen on etsy for her newborn photos. Hehe! Oh yeah, and I can splurge on some cute stuff for her nursery! Hehe!

And as if we hadn't had enough bad luck, things have once again taken a turn for the worse! Everything was up and running after the plumber came on Friday. Todd specifically had a master plumber do all the plumbing since directly below the toilet is our furnace. Well......I went to the bathroom on Saturday night and thankfully Todd was downstairs. He heard almost the entire toilet bowl of water leak onto the furnace!
So Monday the plumber came back out and they figured out that apparently, the toilet somehow passed inspections yet there was about 7 cracks in the bottom of it! Wonderful! AND, when we went to turn our furnace back on the other night, it made the whole house smell like smoke! Great! So we are now waiting for Home depot corporate to get back to us (they followed up last night at least) on an insurance claim they sent in for us. $150 for the two plumber trips and also to have someone fix our furnace! Ughhh.......I love home ownership!

The grout has to dry for 48 hours, so we get to install the vanity tomorrow night. Then our countertops will be installed on Friday and all the plumbing will get done early next week! I'm SOOO excited!
