Today is turning into Day #2 of not spending a cent. Jacob started not feeling well on Sunday afternoon and I kept him home yesterday and today. I am thankful that despite his steady diet of pretzels and McNuggets, he stays pretty healthy. Knock on wood. I can't remember the last time he was home sick from school.
So, no shopping yesterday or today. Maybe I can find time to put away the Christmas decorations. Maybe today will be a day of making money. I have lots of good stuff to put on eBay.
I did clean out my jewelry box a while ago (I went to a "cash for gold" event but didn't sell anything - long story). Well anyway I found two tennis bracelets (that I am keeping). One is real, one cost .50 at a yardsale. Can you tell the difference? I will tell which is which in a later post, and which one is my favorite and why.
I put out more of my peanut butter bird suet out today and within minutes came a red-bellied woodpecker (male). Weird name for it, since it does have a red head, but not a red-headed woodpecker - since that is the name of a different woodpecker.
At the grocery store the other day, I saw that they don't make that old style round bottle of French's mustard. I know I need to recycle it, but the clutterbug in me says to save it. Decisions decisions.
Yesterday I had an interview with a writer from Parenting Magazine. I thought for sure they were calling to give me a Mother of the Year or Mother of the Century award, but no. They are doing a small piece about yardsales in an upcoming issue and wanted to get my 02. Should be in the June 2009 issue (to be on the newstands in May).
