February 7th, 2009
I'm doing laundry and feeding the kitties. This month is a tough one in terms of catching up so I'm trying to work one of my 2 days off each week. The garage is cleaner now that a truck load of board games got dumped off, but now there's a water leak to fix before I go refilling the garage with more inventory. Honestly, I can't wait for next month with SXSW coming up. I'm just saving my money and energy for that and Modest Mouse at Stubb's in March.
Stephen got Valentine's Day off, which is exciting. We are going to an old favorite restaurant of ours. Time flies because our one year anniversary is coming up soon.

No, I need my mommy and daddy to hold my hand and walk me wherever I go. LOL
Best self-date: took myself to a super sweet German restaurant in Portland, Oregon, then conference called a friend and we had dinner "together" - even though he was in Indiana.
Ebay ran my charge on the wrong day (again) for the third month in a row. I think I scraped up enough to cover it, but you would think they could stick to the same time frame to run my fees each month. They are just making it harder and harder to think of Ebay as a viable full time job. I have been trying to stick to my work goals, but I'm not out of the hole yet. Hopefully soon...

I got up a little earlier than usual today, figured out a consignment customer's invoice and listed a Reisler devil troll on ebay. As soon as Stephen wakes up, we're going to get some lunch. I'm going to really hustle on ebay later today and tomorrow. I have tons of bills due and am hoping to get Modest Mouse tickets on Tuesday if I can.
The Coachella lineup came out and I wasn't too impressed. About 20% of the bands I had seen before. Several of the bands are coming to Austin in the near future. I'll save my money, time and energy for SXSW.

The cats are hungry so I guess I'll make this a short one. I think tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I hope I can catch up more by the end of the week.

I got some work done on my mother's estate, hopefully I can get some more done before January ends.
I still can't find my paint set. I don't know where it's disappeared to.
I want more than ever to level off my bills and declutter my home. I truly believe it is the key to happiness. I'm going to close my antique mall booth soon. It only breaks even at best. I guess you can't succeed unless you try, but I'm going for a more minimalist approach this time around. Too much responsibility has made me tired.

Guess what? Stephen got me a Snuggie! A royal blue one. Bootsie stole it, but as soon as he wakes up I'm going to put it on and bust out the book light it came with and read some Archie comics.
I already met my listing goals for the day, so I'm going to look for mis-listed items on ebay going cheap and listen to some Men Without Hats. Stephen has the next two days off, maybe we'll go roller skating tomorrow. We haven't gone in a few weeks. I've been lazy.
I'm looking forward to rocking matching Snuggies with Stephen tonight.

Here's the link to my ebay store:
I can't wait to make room for new finds from the upcoming spring garage and estate sales. If you are looking for anything special, no matter how weird, let me know. Maybe I can help!
