I got this blog title from my daughter's boyfriend. We're having a yard sale today, and I was lamenting that I hadn't done my blog yet for the letter "L". He said "Let it go!".
And so we are. As nice as it is to think about all the space we'll have after some of this stuff is gone, it's hard to sell of little bits and pieces of your life. Often for insanely small amounts of money.
Where a customer sees a 25 cent stuffed animal, I see sleepless nights, afternoons at the emergency room, and ice cream cones. Another customer sees a 1 dollar book of sheet music where I see a family singing along while my dad plays the piano.
Now I know why there are companies that do estate sales for people. It's very difficult to bargain for a reasonable price when one of us is using sentimental value as a bargaining chip.
Well, I'd better get back out there. Lots of stuff left to sell.
