Thankful That Is Over (Thankful Thursday Blog Hop)
I sure am thankful the weekend is over. You see my peeps had something called a garage sale/rummage sale in our garage. It seems one of the neighbor's mentioned they were having one and would we like to join. M said, "That is probably more work than we can handle, but I'll check with Mr. D to see if he has anything."
Mr. D has always poo-pooed the idea in past years. But this year he said Yes, and immediately went to the basement and started pulling things out. Before M realized what he was doing, he had a big pile built up on the floor down there.
There was no way my peeps are capable of lugging all that stuff upstairs anymore, so they called on their SIL (my human sisfur's husband), who came to the rescue on Tuesday night when he was finished with work in another city. What a great SIL they have.
Now I had never lived in this house through a garage sale before cuz the peeps haven't had one in years because they are so much work. I hope I never have to live through another one either because they are scary and awful.
On Tursday morning (when the sale started), I was barred from even peeking in the garage to see what was happening. I didn't like it too much, so I sat about 3 feet from the closed door and waited for a peep to come back in the house. This went on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning when the peeps finally decided they had had enough themselves and were dog tired (M said).
So for 2+ days I sat in front of the door to the garage and waited, waited, and waited some more. I finally put M on a guilt trip cuz I heard her tell a friend "poor Mario wants his house back together." Gasp, they even had to move my litter box in the basement again!!!
The garage sale is now history and I am SO VERY THANKFUL that it is. We're joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - join in too - it's fun!
By the way - D told M "if he ever got another idea like that M should take him in the backyard and shoot him!" Yikes!!!!
