I Knew it.


It's so cold, I'm sure this is gangrene setting in.
Kids are so resilient, though.

And the mounds of snow are going up even into the sky.

It's official.

I've got cabin fever.

No catchy title today. I'm not feeling up to it. On Sunday I was passed a flu bug and have not been feeling well since.

Lot's of down time at home here. A dear friend called to say hello and, when she found out I was sick, offered to bring us anything we needed. At that moment, laying on my bed with a bowl and wet cloth in a handy, nearby location, I could not think of a thing.

Then our smoke detectors began chirping. Michael tried to fix them with batteries from his music equipment, but to no avail. So out came these two ladies with the batteries we'd need to be able to sleep through the night without incessant chirping, the box of saltines I'd requested, and they even brought food for Michael. So kind! What a blessing!

Remember the brass vase and pitcher set I listed on ETSY? Never sold. I'm not surprised, as I had no clue at all what I was doing and then let the listing run out. But this morning, really really really EARLY this morning, I listed them as my first item ever to be sold on eBay. WoooHooooooo!

I still have no idea what I'm doing, but that doesn't stop my mind from daydreaming I'm going to be a big eBay seller who works 30 minutes a day and makes 1,000 dollars a week buying and selling delightful items. Throw in world peace and you've really got something there.

Life lesson # 39573635037465 - Give it a shot, work hard, roll with whatever comes.

I'm still sick. But I am determined to take Michael sledding. He has been wanting to go so badly and we've not got measurable snow here. Just the c-c-c-cold...

Wishing you all the best slush ball fights ever!
