Thankful That Is Over (Thankful Thursday Blog Hop)


Hi Pals,

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!!!!

It's a good thing you didn't sneak out there. Someone would have bought you in a second!

Melissa and Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

I hope none of your stuff got sold, Mario!

I would probably enjoy a garage sale! The humans had one once when Binga was about a year old and she hated it! They had her outside on a harness and she spooked. That was the last time she got to go outside.

Marg said...

Oh no Mario, we sure are glad for your sake that the sale is over now. Thank COD. Mario, please tell M that the Marg did not go to Blog Paws. She couldn't leave all of us many many cats.Anyway, you all have a great day.

Austin Towers said...

Wow, Mario. I bet you kept your peeps sane during all that craziness.
Purrs that you all get back to the old routine!

Caren Gittleman said...

Our M & D did that a few years ago over a weekend and they were exhausted from it too Mario. I know your M & D are glad it's over too!

Baby Patches said...

It's no fun having your house turned upsides down my furriend! I knows I has been there when we moved for the first time in my life. Glad it is all over Mario! But you didn't say if the peeps got rid of anything or not, I hope they did so you has more room for yourself. MOL

Cathy Keisha said...

I don’t think M should shoot D but that is a scary thing. At one point back at the old house one of the tenants suggested a yard sale but TW sail NO.

Katie Isabella said...

Noe Mario...try to forgive them...they were doing something that needed to be done to make more room for YOUR stuffs! xxoo

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

We had one of those about a thousand years ago, afur we were here, thankfurly, MOL! Meowmy said its just easier and better to give the unwanted/not needed stuff to someone who could use it! So she does:))

Deb Barnes said...

Oh gosh yes... thankfully our human has never had a garage sale with us, but she remembers them, but not in a good way! Ugg........... so much work.......... and people haggling over something you charge a quarter for, that they only want to pay a dime for.......... never again! Purrs from Deb and the Zee and Zoey gang!

Simba said...

I bet that was very stressful for you, Mario. My peeps have never had a garage sale but I don't think anybody would want their accumulated junk either. We have SO MUCH!

Happy Sunday, Furriend!

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

Yes, a garage sale can be quite disruptive.. I hope they bought you something very nice with the proceeds to make up for it.

The Indulged Furries said...

I'm sorry you had to endure all that turmoil at your house. My humans had a garage sale before I came to live with them and from what you describe, I hope they never have one while I'm here.
