Zoinks

Hi from Buffalo...and my cousin's really annoying computersauraus with its whopping 448 MB of RAM and its blazing fast DSL connection.

I've been hanging out here since yesterday, helping her out with a garage sale. I agreed to contribute some junk and help watch the kids and whatever, assuming that a garage sale in the middle of no where would be pretty quiet...

Not so much.

There were people lined up to buy our junk at 7 AM today! People just kept coming...It quieted down for a wee bit around lunch time, but then it was non-stop people again till after 5. I have no idea how much money we made, but I'm guessing the toal is well over $500. I didn't bring much stuff - mostly just some clothes, books, and a few old board games - but even I made over $50. Not bad...

It's been pretty annoying, though. I really wanted to get my resume submitted and work on my Linked In profile that I set up a while ago, but never really did anything with; however, this computer goes sooooo slow and my cousin kept needing me to run outside so I kept getting logged out and/or forgetting what I was doing and having to start over. Not a very productive day...

Most of the family is off watching Payton play baseball - it's just me and the girls here now. We made art projects and then they started watching an old Scooby Doo movie (starring the Harlem Globetrotters!) so I came up here to try and work on my resume, but wrote this instead. The movie must have ended because I can hear them arguing downstairs - guess I better go find something else for them to do....
