    Hello Peeps !!!

    Sooooooooooooooo..... I've been BUSY.

    Betcha you've been wondering where I was, huh?

    I've been BUSY ! I'm a total newbie at eBay selling. Buying I have done a-plenty, but have never put anything up for sale. Well last week I went through a bunch of things I decided I no longer needed and put them up for sale on eBay. What I didn't think of until this weekend when they all came to a close, was that all those items went online the same day.. which meant that the closing date was also the same date.. so if they all sold, it would all be on that SAME DAY.
    Which then meant that I would have to package everything and put labels on them and respond, etc. ALL ON THE SAME DAY and get them all out in the mail the following morning.


    Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahaha !!!


    You should have seen me here the past couple days.. my bed piled up with odds and ends, yellow padded folders, labels, tape, packages.."oops, who gets this one" and "uh-oh, she wanted that one".........

    Well, that's how I learned NOT to do things next time!:roll
    From now on I'll be staggering the days I list things, 'cuz that was crazy !!!

    So...need to make a call to the digestive health ctr. and schedule my next appointment to go after the remaining Polyanna Polyp, then have to run up to the hairdresser for a trim. It's dropped 20 degrees since this morning, and it's calling for snow tonight. And wind. And COLD. :stone

    (((hugs))) all around!

    Tina.. that was too funny about the dishwasher. Reminds me of a couple years ago, we had a new aide at dialysis, and when she went to do the machine internal cleaning, instead of hooking the wand up to the vinegar jug, she stuck it in a soap jug.....

    Bubbles coming out of that dialysis machine EVERYWHERE !!!

    ahh, what a lovely picture, siri.

    yes, i sold several items, and it was quite fun listing them, etc. i have a houseful of stuff i could get rid of. will whittle it down over the next couple years.

    yep, cold, cold, cold here. i was actually thinking of stopping on the way home for some ground beef and a bag of mixed veggies to throw in the crockpot with some wide eggnoodles and beef broth. but it was too cold and windy and i just wanted to get home.. i had been in and out of the car all day already.
    so when i got home, there was a big pot of home made beef soup sitting on the kitchen table, along with a huge slab of carrot cake!

    our sweet little elderly neighbor had sent it over. what a coincidence and pleasant, welcome surprise!!! she's just so good to us all the time. a precious woman.

    need to run down into the basement and dig out a few winter sweaters and a couple favorite fleeces. i was hoping i could get by without them this winter, as the weather had been so unseasonably warm all this time. but alas, guess not. those scrubs just aren't getting it in this kinda cold. :stone

    How thoughtful of your neighbor, jnette. And, I know you loved each and every bite!!!! I LOVE carrot cake.

    Yup, srubs doesn't get it. I'm in sweats and two long sleeved shirts now.

    Three in the afternoon and only 4 pages-where is everybody today? Everyone will probably show up later.

    Had a rather interesting experience this weekend. A friend of ours called Fri-just as it was getting dark-and said his wife had told him their two goats had to go to the auction-NOW. Dark or no dark he had to take them so they could be sold Sat. Well, about most of the way over to the auction the wheel came off the trailer holding the goats. The bolts holding the wheel on were broke off so there was putting a new one on out in the road-and, we couldn't find the tire anyways. (Dh later found it about 1/2 mile off the road out in a field.) Long story short, we had to lift the goats into the back of his pickup (about 3 three feet off the ground) then hog-tie them after tying them to the sides of the pickup. Sound like fun? My gardening project is currently on hold. Something tells me that 30 degree weather is not the time to plant. Even if I planted in the house it would be too cold!! Right now, I have a rabbit in my bathtub. (Yes, a rabbit.) I decided to try my hand at raising rabbits several years ago but lost all but one. So...when it got cold I brought her in. (Back in Iowa we had, at one time, over 300. After I bought several rabbits down here I was told they don't do well because of the heat. Oh well, live and learn.)

    Beary: Have you figured out how to conquer Mt. Hampermore? Someday you will slip into a crevice and we will never hear from you again.

    Siri: I am glad, for you, that you got your cold weather. You know how I feel about the cold. We may well get freezing rain around here tomorrow. It did sleet and snow just a few hours north of us. They can keep it. I take it you got over being sick??

    I would address all but have to leave in a few minutes to get kids from school. It is raining here,lightly. I hope it doesn't freeze but it might. Lord!!!!I moved down here to avoid this crap!

    Well, (((hugs))) and prayers for all who need them. It sounds like you are all doing pretty good. I will "talk" to you all later. Stay safe on the roads and be very careful. Donna

    it's been another busy day. had to drive to a hospital in a nearby city to visit with someone whose mom was having surgery today ..... actually it was my friend whose husband died a few weeks ago. that was after i made a few visits at one of our local hospitals.

    it's turned cold and windy here. it was even spitting snow earlier this afternoon. i haven't had time to read the entire thread yet, but i see that several of you are having bad weather. be careful of cold weather hazards.

    My first day was good, overall. The first thing I learned? I have a lot to learn about public transportation Thanks for all the warm wishes

    Jaxia, you gotta love public transportation. I rode the bus routinely to wal mart when I was at a larger university. Why walk 2 miles to get to my car when the bus stop was across the street? Oh, how I miss the sticky floors and the questionable people who look like they're high.
