I am home today, working and (soon to be) finishing my wrapping.  Ebay has been super busy, with 5 things selling since last night.  I never have that many sales over night.  :)  People are in a BUYING mood.  I'd like to spend the day listing but my gifts do need wrapping, too.  It is fun thinking about how I'm going to prepare for next Christmas.

Here are some of my recent sales, I hope they inspire you to get selling or help you recognize a (albeit small) goldmine sitting on that thrift store shelf.  :)

 Anthro sweater, paid 1.00, sold 40.00
 Thing toys (WWIT?*) - paid 2.00, sold 9.99  (yay! I got rid of them!)

 And finally, my little Ruby at her concert last Friday.  It was heartbreaking to be in that room with all of our safe and happy first graders.  Heartbreaking and breathtaking.  She barely sang but did have fun up there with her BFF Emily, who is standing next to her. 

Time to finish the wrapping!  I made a batch of spritz yesterday and it went off without a hitch!  Every time I put lights on the tree or make spritz without wanting to cry I feel a tiny piece of my childhood pain erased.  xoxoxo


*What Was I Thinking?


  1. So happy to hear your childhood pain is being washed away little by little. You are an awesome mom. xoxo Merry Christmas!!! Cousintine
