Is This Thing On?

Hey! I haven't been posting very much lately. Part of it is because I was busy. I took everyone's advice and put my dollhouse and all its contents up on eBay. I'll have a total of 54 individual auctions as soon as I put the last item up today. That was a lot of work! I'm glad I'm doing it, though. Going through all the items, I realized that I'm a different person from the one I was when I was seriously into the dollhouse and collecting for it. It's good to move on and free up the space in my life, physically and mentally.

Monday night we went to an Indians game with my sister-in-law and her husband. We all went out for dinner beforehand downtown, and it was very enjoyable. Good thing, because the Tribe lost after dragging the game out for 12 innings. Ugh. The girls and I also got to enjoy the fireworks afterward; my in-laws left early for their long drive home, and my husband was unselfishly taking the long hike to get our mini-van when the most direct route was blocked off due to the fireworks, and the elevators in the garage were turned off for the same reason.

We spent some of our "tax refund" on some furnishings for our porch, which now looks great and will be nice to hang out in all summer. The girls also like doing their schoolwork out there. Now to get the rest of our place cleaned up so it looks great as well!

Hey! I got to see the fireworks. Watched part of them from, literally, directly under the bursts.

Okay.... You just couldn't do it huh? Give us the link to the dollhouse. I'll see if I can win it, fill it with Barbies and let loose on it with the .410 SxS.

I'll post pictures and a range report on my blog.

Sorry, I gave in to the lure of filthy lucre. :) Here's my auctions. I don't have the main part of the dollhouse up yet; I'm hoping to get it posted tonight.

Doesn't it feel good to put stuff that you don't want on Ebay and watch those numbers go up? :)

I'm going to be doing some major listing in June.

Oh, that stuff is so cute! It was/is quite a nice dollhouse set!

I recently found all my Micronauts. (You had a doll house, I had little space men that blew things up....not normal, I know).

I may sell my micronauts, but they are well loved and worn.

I'm sure your auction winner will get joy from the things you do not have a need for any more.

Hey -- we finally got a day worth spending out doors --- here's to many more of those.

Jane, I love selling stuff on eBay. This stuff is also going much higher than I would have ever dreamed, so it's an added bonus! Have fun with your auctions.

Kate, sunshine is indeed wonderful. That MLT, though...

LL, you never know about those Micronauts. This auction, for example, is doing pretty well.

Marie, I am loving this weather!
