We had a garage sale today... to help fund the mission trip she's about to go on. To Peru. In June. She's $400 short and anything we sold at the garage sale could only help her.
So, we opened up shop at 8:00, after setting everything up for an hour. And around 9:00, a man with a little girl showed up. Not to buy anything, but to drop off his daughter to be babysat by Liz.
Yes, she babysat while she worked this garage sale. Then at 11:00, she asked me to step in and finish up the garage sale as she gathered up the little girl AND Rick, to head to the little girl's house to be put down for a nap. Yes, Liz had somewhere else to be as well. She started work at Blockbuster at 12:00 noon.
And, since I had to be somewhere at 1:00, Rick had to step in and finish the babysitting chores.
So... Liz worked a garage sale, Liz babysat, Liz put Rick in place to finish the babysitting and then headed off to work at Blockbuster for an ELEVEN HOUR SHIFT!
And since there's no rest for the weary, she works, babysitting ALL DAY TOMORROW, TOO! Starting at 6:00 AM!!!
I need a nap just thinking about it all.
