In Which Our Addy Helps

Don't you hate it when you don't have anything in your store you're super excited about?  That's how my week has been.  Nothing really Earth-shattering going on, several unpaid auctions and mediocre sales.  I just don't have anything listed that has me excited!  But, yard sales have been sub-par the past couple of weeks. 

I'm venturing out with our Addy tomorrow to hit a few that are close by that promise to have "too much to list!!!" so we'll see about that.

On the vacation front, I have officially paid for our condo!  Now I'm totally freaking out because I have about a month to make our gas and spending money.  I mean, Tybee's an eight hour drive and our Trip Car is a gas-sucking Jeep Liberty (the Subaru, while better on gas, is not to be trusted).

While my sales have been low-dollar, they have been fairly plentiful and I'm making daily trips to the post office.  It has been during these busy couple of weeks that I've realized how much I hate packing things in boxes.  I'm happy as can be to shove a shirt in a bubble mailer and be on my way, but boxes totally suck.  I guess I'm getting lazy.  Ok, not lazy.  Busier in other areas of life.  Addy has absolutely run me ragged this week, but I'm not complaining, just stating a fact.  She is such a little ball of energy and I would rather spend my time with her than trying to figure out how to fit a planter in a box that's three centimeters too small for it.  Here's her helping me pack stuff:

I didn't take a picture of her upending my huge bag of packing peanuts because I was too busy trying to keep her from pressing my printer's on/off button for the 500th time.

She's a silly goose.

I think I would actually take a break from eBay for awhile if it wasn't for having to cough up vacation dough.  Of course, now that I've shelled out approximately $1200 for our condo, which is nonrefundable unless they rent it out to someone else, I have to keep going.  Plus, Tyler and I got married on Tybee and Addy hasn't been to the beach yet, so if it doesn't happen, I'll feel like the worst mommy ever.

No pressure.


  1. I think we all get burnt out from time to time. I have been feeling like that recently too. And I've only had one sale this week so far so that's not helping. Just keep looking at the finish line (a great vacation with your family) and you will get past it.

  2. That photo is precious! My baby girl is all grown up, but I have a cat that's into everything, especially bubble wrap. She loves to chew it! I hide it from her and I have to keep all my sales that are packaged in poly bubble mailers high and out of reach or she'll destroy them.

  3. Hi,

    Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!
