I sold my first ever item on eBay. I think it went well. It’s always a little nerve-wracking dropping an item worth a few hundred dollars in the mail and hoping it gets there ok, and that the person on the other end isn’t going to try to take advantage of you. But what’s great is I can use the money I got to buy a fancy schmancy carry-on bag for our trip to Prague! The airline we’re using only allows 11 lbs per carry-on per person (seriously?!), and my current carry-on probably weighs at least half of that all by itself, leaving very little weight for actual clothes and stuff.
This Cake Batter Chapstick is amazeballs. I’m sure it’s full of all kinds of terrible-for-you chemicals, but it smells JUST LIKE CAKE BATTER. I love it. And it was only $1.
My work computer hasn’t been working properly since Tuesday. At first, I thought it had died completely. It crashed, and after a hard reset, the display didn’t come back. It turned out to be a crazy coincidence that around the time my computer crashed, the monitor cable connection became loose. So after fiddling with cables, it seemed like everything was ok. And then it crashed again. IT thought it might be a bad display driver, so I downloaded a new one. It crashed again right before the end of the day on Thursday, so now it might be a bad or overheating video card, and I’ve got my computer casing opened up on my desk to help with air flow. Oh, and both our IT guys are on vacation, so nothing will be permanently fixed until they get back. Whee!
Ben and I are house-sitting again. This time for some friends of the family. No dogs to look after, no octogenarians to cook for. Just a beautiful house to live in. With a comfy guest bed to stay in. And they’re paying us in fudge and movie tickets. Win-win-win.
Have you ever sold anything on Ebay? How’d it go?
