Forgiveness came up in my devotional today, and that is something I think I will always struggle with. Being mad, harboring anger toward someone takes up so much energy, it isn’t really worth it if you think about it, you only end up hurting yourself. For some reason I feel compelled to write more lately, but I’m not sure that anything I’m writing or even thinking for that matter, is making any sense. But, forgiveness is something I need to work on, He forgave me, the least I can do is forgive others.
I love binge watching Criminal Minds while I’m listing on Ebay. I’ve got at least 6 death piles go on here, but I’m trying. Seems I’ve been sleeping on thrift outlet, I found an amazingly old school panam bag that I can’t wait to get listed. I saw it and thought I had heard of it before from someone in the reseller community, but then I remembered where I had seen it. I’m kind of obsessed with Gilmore Girls in the way that I am obsessed with 13 Going on 30 lol they both make me insanely happy, so sometimes I go back and watch them anywho, when Rorie goes to spy on Luke’s daughters mom, she has a store where she sales one of a kind items, may even be a resell shop, and Rorie picks out a Panam bag to give to her mom. LOL! Why/how would I remember that?
I opened up a store on ebay finally, siftingsisters. I have about 60 listings listed, hopefully nothing will be a problem while I am at Disney in two weeks but we shall see. Exciting! Moving forward into the land of unknown, and I can dig it. I went sourcing today, and only bought three items. I have a lot to list! I had my first return today, and though I do not offer returns, the lady was so nice with her email, I decided to make an exception plus, I think I could sell it for a bit more than what she paid when I relist it. Today I went and got my haircut finally, seems like it has been growing super fast since having left retail, but what do I know. Today I was able to do 14 crunches in the air…so cool! When I first started, I could hardly hold myself up!
I didn’t realize I am “working” Wednesday, so it seems I will have to miss my new member class, but I’m going to try and reschedule or something. I am so looking forward to Easter Sunday, because I am going to be taking my Goddaughter (unofficially) to church Sunday! I am going to buy her a new dress and hat and all that jazz because my Mom used to do that for me when I was little, and I think she will really enjoy that. The last year or so has been really hard on her and her mom and it is just going to be a really special day.
I need to work on sleeping better, it seems as though my insomnia has come back. Tomorrow I plan on getting started on making Minnie Mouse ears for my sister, if they turn out well, I will post on here. Going to try to dabble a bit in new things since I have a bit more free time on my hands. Have a great week dear readers! Don’t forget the significance of this week, and if you would like KSBJ, the christian radio station here in Houston, is offering up real time texts during Holy Week. If you want in on this, just text EASTER17 to 51555. This is the third year I’ve done this, and it’s really neat, and really makes you feel a bit of the giant impact this week has on us as Christians. Last year, it inspired me to write a poem. A terrible thing happened, so that we would know we are so loved and so forgiven. He is risen!
We are less than a month away from Disney, and we have been hitting the gym pretty hard these last few weeks. Today though, was worse than usual because, we are finally doing the right sort of things. Yesterday, this lady helped us figure out how to do the (stay with me here as I try to explain this instrument of torture) thing where you pull up your whole body with your arms…or as I like to call it the swing, swing, swing machine…All American Rejects reference there lol. Anyway, we have been doing that properly now, and it works out your core, and I am currently dead, exhausted, sore etc.
Last week, we went up to the ranch and did a ton of work. We burned for three days straight, and still have tons more to go. On the way home, we stopped in Austin and did some sourcing, and again in Caldwell to visit with my aunt and uncle on their farm, and checked out the land we have up there to see if there are any cattle on it. It was neat to see, as I haven’t seen it since I was a child. Its been years since I’ve been to my aunt and uncles farm as well, and it was pretty peaceful. Breeze and weather was amazing, even did a couple crazy jumps/climbs along the creek on the mule…yikes! Pretty sure I’d flip the thing but nope!
Embarking upon my second full month of ebaying, and I’m still learning a lot, and still probably making mistakes, but if it keeps me from having to take a normal job, I’ll keep stumbling through the process of learning to run a successful business on the inter webs. I only sold two things last week, and currently have 14 listings with no hits…it is what it is. In the mean time, I’ll continue studying up on brands and markups and all of that good stuff. The hunt is the funniest part, to tell you the truth. Speaking of hunt, tomorrow is Rodeo DAY!!! Still trying to find the perfect tickets but, I am psyched to see Blink-182 at the Rodeo…isn’t that some sort of oxymoron? LOL!
We just had my great grandmas chair that has been in my room reupholstered, and boy is it beautiful.
