going once? going twice? the auction block is up!

the auctioneer brought the block today and a gazillion tables (which we've already filled!) we just need more boxes (anyone have boxes??) we worked for 12 hours today (ugh lemme tell ya!) and have so much left to do, but it's a good start. we have 5 days to finish up before the auction sunday! it starts at noon, so get to church, and get here. we're 2 minutes from grace, and they'll have lunch here! (hm, i wonder if we get to eat free?!)
i know it's worth it and i know people need things sorted into hammers and screwdrivers and vases and baskets and candles and pans, but dang! i wish we could just dump it all together and sell mystery boxes. unfortunately, i think, allen and i are going to work for the auctioneer, so i'll know how much things are selling for. not sure i really want to know that! but at least i'm grateful it'll be gone so we'll be free of stuff.
my brother ryan's here helping us greatly (his car's in the shop - very fortunate for us, though not so much for him!) and the kids worked really hard so we made great strides today. (well the kids were on skates so great rolls?) unfortunately/fortunately we get to do it all again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next...
