That was the sound of all my stuff being wisked away by friends, family, good neighbors and various strangers as the Chongolian Yardsale-O-Rama ran it's course last weekend. I got rid of just about everything that needed to find a new home and go to spend some time hangin' out a bit. Although it is a bit surreal watchin' as your a huge bulk of your possesions are loaded up into your friend's car and then driven away to a new home. I am OK with it though...Ok a few tears were shed but nobody saw them.
Saturday was super mellow, kinda grey and cold but a few friends came by to eat, peruse the goodies and relax. A special thanks to Margery for helpin' out and bringing over some beverages and the food the guys at Aloha Island Grille prepared. Also thanky to Jentiki for come over with the beers and cupcakes. One last big thanks to everybody who stopped by who took some stuff and "fed the Kitty." I really can tell you enough how much I appreciate your help, support and friendship.
Sunday was crazy go nutz! Just a few short minutes after hangin' up signs at the nearest intersection. Early birds started pouring in trying to buy my neighbors tools and going through my cupboards and trying to get at my half bags of trail mix, pistachios and cleaning supplies. A lot of people stopped by to look things over and essentially took away just about everything at a low low price. One lady, a neighbor who I had never met before, was so happy with her bargains she came back the next day with fresh monkey bread for me that was quite good.
This next week will be a busy one. I still have quite a bit of moving to do, a dump run to make and get the place cleaned up by next Sunday. For the most part I am now working out of a portable office I set up at my Mom's but with my workhorse computer is still in the studio plugged in because I still have a few projects that I am in the middle of working on.
One last thing, I am making a last minute decision to go to Kauai for a few days the second week in April to talk with a women about a room and a house sitting gig. I will also be carrying and packing as much stuff as I can carry to put into storage over there until I return some time in May.
Thanks to everyone who responds to my posts and emails. I try to get back to everybody but time is really getting tight now. I may be a bit scarce and hard to reach for a while until things settle down a bit. I will do my best to keep up with short notes and blog entries so you can all follow along as the real life adventures of Chongolio continue!
