We have just finished the first stage in getting thru my mother & father in law's estate. We had the estate sale this last weekend and it was a madhouse on Friday. They were like vultures and the things that I sold blew my mind. I sold boxes of old nails, glass jars and plates, old tables that were rusted and had not seen the light of day in years, old shelving units that had duct tape holding them together the list goes on and on. Some of the things had been in the basement since the dawn of time and had little prehistoric bugs in them. Sold it and did not charge extra for the bugs, dirt and cobwebs, but maybe I should have.
Well the next step is to box up the remaining items and send off to Cousin Vinny's. There are a few things we are still trying to sell on Craig's List like the piano, couch, and a lifting recliner. I was also going to try and sell the kitchen aid and the more I think about it the more I think we need to have it for the holiday's when we have people over so we can bake more. I think I deserve to have it after all the work that I put into the sale.
After that we will be putting their house on the market hopefully we will be able to sell it real quick then it's time to start my life. Yes, I do mean start I have been thinking about this we really have not had a life we have been taking care of my in-law's our whole marriage. Well now it is time to start living!!!
