Moving Sale Part I Now Officially Behind Us

I had no pre-conceived ideas as to what would or would not sell in the House/Moving sale we had today, May 3rd. I also had no idea how many people would show up. Would all this effort be a waste of time or would people actually walk thru the door. I must say that with very little exception, we had "traffic" throughout the day beginning well before 10am and lasting until 5pm. We were able to sell some items and still have more to sell. Sooooooo, we are going to do this all over again NEXT Sunday! (That means another 6:20am minyan-start to the day before the sale begins!) There will be lots more NEW stuff out next week, so all of you who did not get the chance today or who were here but did not find "just the right item," are all invited back next week...

Today's entry so far can be characterized as "reporting facts." What is NOT in the above is the "emotional" aspect of today. Having people come through our home and buy "OUR" stuff, and to discuss our impending Aliya (64 days IY, tick...tick...tick...) continued to hammer home the feeling that this is getting more real and closer by the minute. The words of "chizuk" we heard from EVERYONE coming through our doors today were most encouraging....and GREATLY appreciated. it merely validates for us that we are doing the right thing. So many have expressed the desire to follow us in this response: there is plenty of room for you in Israel and we will be happy to meet you at the airport!

So, that's it for today. I DO have more to write but I am physically and emotionally VERY tired right now. Besides, I think I hear the doorbell...may be a straggling customer. Wish me luck!
