Truth Tuesdays… or Questions I’ve Been Asked:


I've been asked some strange eBay and non-eBay questions… Here's a few of them:

  1. Are those ALL your children, and do they have the same father?   My answer?  Yes, and yes.. but different mothers.  Then I walk away quickly… because WHO ASKS that kind of question… Do they have the same father?  Are they saying I have questionable morals? Or maybe that there's no way one man could have sex with me 7 times?  
  2. What's the best thing you've ever sold on eBay?  Hmm.. I wonder if that means the best (most money) or the best (as in it made me happy)… I'm going to go with a combo of the two. I purchased a Mario Lemieux game day hockey stick at an auction for $1.00 BUT I had no idea that it was anything more than a hockey stick because it was wrapped in black plastic.  When I unwrapped it I was pleasantly surprised.  I sold it for $488.00
  3. What's the one thing you'd change about yourself? I'm 85% happy with myself. But if I could change something I would say either my weight or that I would love fruits and vegetables, and to run.. I want to be happy about running.
  4. Do you leave feedback for every transaction?  No, if I don't like you for some reason, I will not leave you feedback… because according to eBay rules, if you can't say something nice (positive) then don't say anything at all.
  5. Why do you post what you do daily on your blog?  I have a lot of people ask me "how do you do everything you do?"  It's a pretty simple answer.. I write a  list everyday.
  6. Is there one country that you wish you didn't have to ship too?  Yep.. Canada. I seem to have the most problems with Canadian buyers. I'm not sure why.. one day I'll tell you the "pink poodle" story, and you'll know.
  7. Mom, which one do you love more? I love you all equally. (that's what I tell them 😉 )
  8. Have you ever bit your toenails?  No, but I use to give my sister a $1.00 for putting her big toe up her nose.
  9. Do you have any regrets? HMMM… I usually regret staying up too late.. but my biggest regret is not meeting and marrying the Man sooner.. we would have had 15 kids by now!  OH.. and I regret not loving to exercise.
  10. Do you sell for other people?  No, not really. I'm not very good at it, and when I do, I'm always worried I will let the person down.

It Was A Very Muddy Hunger Games

A long time ago…  in the big town of Ottawa Kansas.. 5 teenagers, 1 semi adult and one quasi adult went to see the Hunger games.

Here they are ready for the movie… Are they lined up by height?

We arrive 1.5 hours before the movie started (at midnight)  We were pretty much the line.. with only 4 people in front of us.

The role of Katniss Everdeen will be played by…

Waiting.. for the movie to start

#1 feeding #2 popcorn. 

PS:     They really aren't this creepy…

PSS     Yes they are…… but don't tell them I said so.

On the way home I got a little stuck on my road.  I had several boys push me out… and well this is what happened..

I'm not sure what that kid in the background is doing…

This poor child was right behind my wheel…


Pinterest Photo Challenge Day 12: Stairs

Today's Pinterest Photo Challenge is stairs….  I have quite a few stairs in my house.  I experience stairs everyday, but the stairs that vex me are these.  The stone stairs to my house.  I saw every year that I am going to fix them, make them look better… but I don't.  Maybe this year is my year to do it.
