Are You Getting Ready to Make Some Money?

I am!

It is consignment season and, let me tell you, I am getting ramped up for this one. Since this is the first sale season since we started Clean It Out we have a ton of stuff that needs to get moved. I plan to attend and participate in as many of these sales as possible . . . the first one is just a few weeks away – Rhea Lana’s in Frisco (August 10 – 13) – and following that you will see the Rhea Lana’s in Southwest Dallas sale opening up.


If you’ve never consigned before, it truly is way easier than it seems.

1. You sign up for the sale on the sale’s website.

2. You enter the items into the computer system.

3. You attach a blank white hanging tag that you can get at any office supply store. (At Rhea Lana’s they will have your tags printed out for you and you will just need to attach them to the white labels.)

4. You drop off your items before the sale.

5. You pick your items up at the end of the sale and there will be a pretty check waiting for you!

Super easy and it truly is a huge help to my clothing budget!

If you are interested in consigning at Rhea Lana’s in Frisco, you will need to have all items entered prior to August 7th and then you will drop them off on August 8th in time for the sale which is August 10 – 13. The Frisco sale will be held in the Preston Village Shopping Center (Southeast corner of Hwy 121 and Preston Road behind Chick-fil-A and next to the PGA Superstore).

If you are interested in consigning at Rhea Lana’s of Southwest Dallas, their sale will be held September 14-17 and I will share the detailed schedule with you as it gets closer.

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
