Vacation and Selling Stuff
I'm happy today because a couple of (very cool) friends of mine had a garage sale, and managed to sell some of my unwanted stuff. Not a ton was sold, but even more was given away to people who will hopefully use and appreciate it. Also I have somebody from Craigslist checking out a leather coat I've been trying to sell, and hopefully that'll sell tomorrow also. Hooray for decluttering, and hooray for having some gas money for my vacation!

Speaking of which, I'm going on vacation friday! M and I are going for a week-long driving vacation exploring Northern Michigan. Hooray for vacation! It's been a crazy year. I really need a mental break from stuff, and hopefully this will be it. We are going to Grayling, Mackinac Island, Tahquamenon Falls, Glen Arbor, and the Leelanau Peninsula. We are taking our bikes, and going hiking, and visiting wineries, and all kinds of nice stuff.

Sadly, my fancy new knee brace still hasn't arrived in the mail yet, and I'm worried I won't have it before we leave. I was hoping it would make hiking more comfortable. I'm not sure how my knee will feel about hiking without a brace. I might feel fine, but it might be painful - especially if I do lots of hiking, which would be my preference. I like outdoorsy stuff like that. But it might still arrive: it still has two days. Hopefully!

Either way, I'm going on vacation, that that'll be great. Also, last night M and I buried a statue of St Joseph in my yard, upside down, facing the house. Also my realtor has scheduled an open house for sunday. I figure those two things combined will cause me to be faxing some Offer-Accepting paperwork to my realtor while on vacation. It's a nice theory, right? That I'd come home to a sold house? That'd be a nice mental break indeed!

A girl can dream... right?

Sounds like things are going well - that statue-burying thing is just a tad bizarre - we don't do it in the UK! Hope it works, though.

My partner has had his lovely mobile home on the market for 11 months now. I think he's had ONE viewing in all that time. It costs him £300 a month for site rental and rates. That's how good the property market is over here!

We're planning a few days down in Cornwall at the end of the month, just to take a break. I think an autumn holiday is a great idea - especially where you're going - my goodness, the fall colours will be beautiful!
