My yard sale was today. This was all the stuff that B doesn’t want, I don’t want, and I want it OUT of the house. I’ve been slowly going through and sorting stuff for three months. This week, I consolidated all of it into the dining room. I also spent almost $40 to place classified ads announcing the sale in addition to posting it on craigslist. Last night I got as much ready as I could. This morning about two hours before the sale start time, I began setting everything up in the yard. I was ready.

V-E-R-Y slow day.

I started the day with $50 in my pocket. I ended with $99. After paying myself back the $40 for the classifieds, and deducting the original $50, I made NINE F****** DOLLARS.

I grabbed a bunch of huge trash bags and began to pile things in them. Stuff from the dollar store went in the bags as quickly as random anniversary gifts that B had given me at one time. I was indiscriminate in getting rid of stuff. When I was done with this mania, I had 12 bags of…well…things that I don’t want around as reminders of a life that I no longer have. I backed my truck into the yard, loaded the bags and drove them directly to a donation site. They’re gone.

And yesterday, I mailed out the last of B’s boxes. Gone.

I’ve let go of so much in my life in the past five months. But, I am ok.

However, I think I am allowed to bitch a bit more about making only NINE GODDAMN DOLLARS today!

Yeah, I haz a fierce alright.


Since my last post, a lot has changed in my life. In fact, my life was completely turned upside down. I was blindsided. The rug was pulled out from under me. You get the picture. My partner of ten years decided to move on in her life without me. It’s over. No indication whatsoever.

Now here I am, 2 1/2 months after the breakup and I’m surviving. Our house is on the market. I’m still living here. She has moved many states away. It has been an emotional rollercoaster over the past two months, but I’m really trying to remain positive.

The world is wide open to me now. I have a passport and a credit card, so I can go anywhere I want to. I’ve thought about maybe getting certified in TEFL so that I can teach English abroad somewhere. Or, maybe I’ll become an expat! Either way, I want and NEED to travel. As soon as the house sells and I can get the hell away from here, I want to see what’s out there. All I can do for now is save money and plan and dream.
