$32 for Drudgery
Now I remember why I swore I'd never do another yard sale.
I was up at 7:18 to schlep stuff, the sale was from 9 to 4 and I made $32. I owed $10 of that to Jean, who paid for my yard sale permit at Town Hall. And four of us still have to split the $60 fee for very short ad in The Montclair Times plus $7.50 for Baristanet ad.
Tomorrow the weather will be better, but this is exhausting.
I should stick to writing for a living.
On a bright note, tonight H. and I went to a teachers' toast in honor of Punch's kindergarten teacher at Nishuane School, the amazing and golden-hearted Mary Paolazzi and her wonder team of Mrs. Wagner, Mrs. Goldsack and Ms. Warren. They're angels. We just can't see their wings. I mean it. Nice to sip margaritas and eat guacamole in honor of them in a beautiful Montclair home.
Grateful. Good night.
