It's on the internet, so it must be official: my yard sale to benefit Partners in Health is becoming reality! I have the massive pile of donations in my basement and my advertisement on Craigslist to prove it (http://yakima.craigslist.org/gms/1671181115.html).
I'm actually terrified-- terrified of thugs stealing all of my merchandise in the night, or maybe terrified of crazy garage sale shoppers stampeding across my yard and leaving a swath of destruction in their wake. But beneath the terror is a queasy, stage-fright feeling that's something like excitement. I feel like this project is somehow bigger or more important than I even realized it would be.
I hope people show up.
