I don't know about you, but when I have a yard sale I want to go to, I want to be one of the first suckers there. I'm off school today, so I figured I'd try to find some indoor sales and take the baby along. There's an estate sale not too far from our house that starts at 9 (right now!) and I'm here writing this blog!
It's the baby's fault.
We're trying to break Addy of her night time bottles, and of bottles in general. I have people telling me 80 different things: "oh we broke ours of that before they were one", "oh, just do whatever you want, she's your baby", "oh, she must be spoiled!". And blah blah blah. I hate it. It's been going ok, but last night from 2:00-3:30 she was very upset about the situation. I finally caved and gave her a bottle, of which she only ate about 3 ounces. She woke back up at 6, we played a bit, and then she crashed an hour ago. I was kind of itching to make it to my first estate sale of the season on time, but I'll take a happy well-rested baby over somone's old crap any day. So I guess I'll just wait it out.
This week has been painfully slow, eBay wise. Sunday was excellent, so I thought my "end everything and then list it again and pray that it sells" tactic was working, but this week was awful. I am a big nerd and keep a line graph of my daily sales week by week, and Thursday is always good for me, even during January and February when it was so slow. Did I have any sales yesterday? Heck no. In fact, my stupid Omniture thingy said I only had about 40 people even look at my stuff (I would post a picture of that, but it's down right now...like always).
If we don't make it to the estate sale, there's a couple consignment sales going on in town and I'll also be heading to the GW, so hopefully I can find some stuff. I figure since I'm obviously not going to be busy shipping anything, I should make a goal for this month, listing-wise. I am at 153 right now, thanks to some kid's clothes donations from my sister-in-law, so I think it wouldn't be asking too much to get to about 175 by the end of the month. I would say 200, but where the hell would I put all that stuff, know what I'm sayin?
I'll post pics if I find anything that I don't instantly regret buying.
