A new week begins

I was planning to post about selling on Ebay today, but I can't seem to pull my thoughts together in that area.

I did something a bit unusual for me last night. I stayed out til 3 am at a girlfriends house. We both homeschool, and in spite of the fact that neither of us have "outside" jobs, we still haven't been able to get together for a real visit in such a long time. Homeschooling and our kid's extracurricular activities are keeping us both running here and there, or busy at home. It really was a last resort to visit after our families were snug in their beds.

And that's how six hours flew by. Strange, because it seemed like such a short time.

And as much as I'll miss those hours of sleep, the trade-off is well worth it. I find this sort of thing tends to invigorate me mentally. Which reminds me just how much I need to take these occasional time-outs.

And the house was still standing when I came home;)

So, since I don't have a real post today, I thought I would point you in the direction of Marva's new blog Marva's Marvelous Mixes. And congratulations Marva on your new venture!

Happy Monday~

3 AM? Oh, my!! I was awake from 2-3 this morning, but just because I couldn't sleep. I'm glad you had fun, though. My friends and I get together once a month at someone's house. Our children play (the oldest is 5, so no one is really doing the school-thing yet) while we talk. We really enjoy it. And the kids love it!

I am glad you have a good friend like that.
I am mad at ebay.I stopped selling in March this year after they made all the new changes.I miss having all that money tho!

Wow that is late...even for me! I understand about it being worth it, though. Sometimes you just need a break!

How awesome to have a friend like that whom you can visit until 3 in the morning! And good for you for taking some "you time" and invigorating yourself. We all definitely need it from time to time. I am not with ours all day and I still need it from time to time! I'm not sure how you do it all day everyday! =) I know it's a pleasure, but exhausting all the same!

Good for you!

I'm glad you got some girl time. Now I hope you'll get some rest!

I'm curious about the E-bay thing. We need to get rid of a lot of stuff. Much of it is in good shape and I would love to get some money out of it. I'm just too nervous and full of questions about how to do the E-bay and postal part. I look forward to your future post.
