Last minute shopping

Today Lizzie reminded me that we had not yet seen Santa. Like last year, we trekked to the mall on Christmas Eve to see the jolly old elf in order to get the Christmas wishes in the official wishing ear.

While at the mall we picked up our copy of I So Don't Do Mysteries. I think Winnie will finish this one in no time. First she made me promise not to start reading without her, then she weaseled it from me and has begun reading without me!
I know reading is a solitary thing, but not always in our house -- we still read out loud before bed and I thought that was when we would be reading this book.

Barrie, I'm happy to report that when I asked her if it was good so far, Winnie gave a very enthusiastic, "uh huh!"

McDreamy Wedding

While cleaning out my photo files I came across this gem my sister took of me and McDreamy. I did it for Swishy and then forgot to post it!

No joy

I had a great product, bids were going well and I ended the auction early and did not sell the dang train.

I wish I could explain, but it has to do with my own freakishly strange nature and that is all I am going to say about that.

First comes boredom, then comes ebay

I am playing my part in some kind of housewife stereotype right about now.

Not that getting ones ebay on is a bad thing, but still -- if you only knew...

I listed my first ebay auction! With Kay's assistance on the ebay advice hotline!
Sorry for all the !!! But my first auction, and blogger buddy contact -- it's the little things friends.

I am completely and compulsively obsessed with my auction and "similar items" -- I'm fairly sure this is where the 'leaning toward something pathetic' feeling is coming from, but I can't seem to stop myself from checking on my item. I've got days to go and already I'm thinking of other things I could sell.

I give things away because I hate a hassle and I like to give people free stuff because as a mom, I know how fun it is to get hand me down free stuff for the kids -- dump it forward. But now, now I have some kind of ebay fever, so we shall see.
