Bonus Post

I know I already posted once today, but today is your lucky day and I am doing a bonus post.

On Sunday, we went to a minor league baseball game - the Blue Crabs (cuz of course I had free tickets). And as luck would have it, the team was signing autographs when we arrived so Jacob got a lot of signatures on his thrift store Blue Crabs hat. He has two Blue Crabs hats (both from the thrift store, but one is a nicer, embroidered hat). But when we left for the game, the first hat I found was the non-embroidered one. Oh well. Here's Jacob getting an autograph from player #8.



I must have made quite an impression on #8, since he (purposely - I'm sure) spotted me in the crowd and hit a foul ball pretty much directly right to me. It did bounce a few times, but I know he wanted me to get it for Jacob. I have that effect on people. So here's Jacob posing with the ball I got. But with my house being the black hole that it is, I have no idea where the ball currently is. I remember putting it on the kitchen table Sunday night but where it is now, I have no idea.

And also on Sunday the clubhouse at the stadium was having a open house, so we ditched our regular seats and sat in the cushy seats. And that's where #8 spotted me and hit the foul ball to me.

I met my ebay deadline today so hopefully I will do the vacay 2010 post soon. Also today I went to Walgreens and saw they had clearanced a lot of their cleaning products. So...more cheap laundry detergent for me (the small light blue bottles were .50 each for 12 loads. So I figured $1 for 24 loads of laundry was a good deal. And I stocked up on other clearanced stuff like Downy at $1.39 each. I never buy Downy because it's too expensive but I'll buy it at $1.39 a bottle (I do buy fabric softener, just not Downy cuz of the price). Plus I used a bunch of Register Rewards to pay for it, so I only paid a little over $3 for all the stuff in the cart.

What was your goal to hit before the end of your eBay deadline? How has selling been, just as good as ever?

I just started selling this year, and after yardsales tapered off around here in the Spring, my "stock" kind of dried up (haven't found much in thrift stores lately either). I did really good in the Spring, so I'm hoping that when I find more stuff to sell this Fall, I'll do just as good!!

This upcoming Saturday is the "start" of the Fall yardsale season around here, so I am SUPER excited. I hope it doesn't rain!!

Mike - my ebay deadline had to do with the ebay promotion that ended 9/7 - list 100 items at any starting price for free. I have YEARS worth of *inventory* to sell!
