4 of the 6 sets I put up sold!! Wow I'm impressed and sure that I should have sold them for more money! But they semed consistent with what the others were going for just I think I was the only one who did buy it now reasonably. Maybe I'm on to something. i have more stuff to list as soon as I get pictures taken of it.

I listed a few stamp sets on ebay that I have used enough that I am sure I won't miss them. There were 6 of them and I forgot that one wasn't retired. I am was amazed when someone emailed me to correct my listing. She was right and it was an honest mistake on my part. One of the sets was still in the book but man, she emailed me twice and included page and catalog number. I have found small errors when I am looking at listings but unless I want to buy the thing I don't ask about any information that might be wrong. Even then only if it is pertanent. The cool thing is that 2 of them have already sold at the buy it now price. one of them within an hour of listing!!!
Anyone know anything about the country of Kosova (o)? We are featuring missionaries form there at out conference in April and I just was informed that i need to do a bullitan board, table decorations, decorate a welcome center an dmake an authentic dessert or two or three. HELP ANYONE??!!
I started a group on Prosper.com!!
It is Get Out of Debt and the nickname is GOOD. I put it's goals as helping others get out of debt. I have a loan finally. It took awhile but I got one. I have another one pending. I won't be able to bid on another till April but at least I have a start. I hope to have at least half a dozen by the end of the year. Won't be much income but it will be some. I am only playing with my "allowance" (part of it anyway) so it isn't a big risk. Once we have some big projects done (like the garage roof, fence, a playset, etc) we may try to do some more. Right now I can't wait until April to find out what bonus DH gets. I am hoping it will take care of 1/3 of the garage roof. The company didn't make alot of money last year but it did OK so we'll see. I understand the bonus is based half on his performance (was great) and half on the companies. So we know he'll get one just not how much. Half of it goes to one of the other projects.
Hey all who read my blog, I have a odd question that I don't think is forum postable.
WE received an invitation to a child's "black belt test and reception" OK, we plan on going he is one of my students in the Sunday school class I co teach with our Pastor.
My question is what would be an appropriate present? We do not give cash for any reason. I was considering a Christian CD or ??? Maybe Chuck Norris' biography.
I am trying the Prosper thing. I have been bidding on loans for a couple months now and finally figured out how to make sure I get one. I think I have won two loans (or rather a small part of them) and will let you know how it goes. Now if I could just figure out what to do about the 20 $ challenge since nothing is selling.
Well, went to the dentist today and found out just how much they want me to spend. He also found out just how much he can't talk me into spending. He even tried the old you want to save your teeth but you aren't willing to put th emoney in them. After I explained (pretty coolly ) that I am a SAHM because we believe it is important for our DS2 to have me home and ... He backed down very quickly. We are going to find out what they (ins) will pay for and go from there. I am shocked to find they pay a different percentage of different precedures. And more unhappy that I didn't find out what percentage they will pay for of the work I already had done. Of course I was in so much pain I probably would have agreed to go with it no matter the price.
Wow the field of dentistry has really changed since I was last stuck in the chair of torture. I had a 2 hour root canal today. He put this thing with a piece of plastic over my mouth and then used it as a "table" for stuff. The next thing that was new (to me anyway) was the bic his aide clicked and then he put his tool in it and from there straight into my mouth. I'm not sure if I have a tooth or a radio receiving station. I am sure he made alot of money today!!! Monday is when he will give me an estimate on what else he needs to do and I will redefine need for him, as in my insurance pays this much, you can only hurt me until that is gone then you have to wait for next year!!!
DH's not mine. His went great. He got high marks in everything and was complimented on his ability to realistically rate his own performance as well. Hopefully a raise comes of this next month. Next month is when the bonus comes out as well. Hopefully it will put a dent in the bill to have the garage roof replaced.
I wonder if I should request a performance review. Let's see should I ask DH for his review of me as a wife, or DS2 of his review as a Mommy, or take a concensus of the GK's on me as a Nana or just ask God how I am doing as His kid? Actually I suspect the whole process would depress me so I dont' think I want a performance review.
WOW, dental care is expensive!!! I went in for the rest of the Xrays yesterday and while I was there found out the cost of my root canal (still to come on Monday. The receptionist thought I should know since my insurance only covers so much. Nice to know someone at that office is listening. Anyway it is 850.00 plus what was already done 196.00 and after several months a cap for 850.00 and something else for 275.00. I told them that about covers what my insurance allows so they could stop there but it seems the cap and other piece can wait until January so they have some to work with now and then in January they can do more. I dont' think the Dr is going to like that but oh well he'd like not getting paid even less I'm sure!!!
At least I hope they sold. I put my old sewing machine on ebay and it sold yesterday. The person who bought it only has 2 other ratings to her name and while they are good ratings I am concerned and probably will be until the money shows up. The machine I bought to replace it will be almost paid for as soon as that money clears because I cashed in my money jar (136.00) to cover any difference. I also sold another machine but it went for very little. Every bit helps though. Now the real challenge will be packing them! That is my next project.
