Oh my gosh -- you guys are the best!!! There are times when I think I live in a vacuum waiting to be rescued by you all!! I will NOT be buying a new rain jacket - I just need to find some waterproofing stuff. So that's on the list of things to track down. See how those errands accumulate!! I can barely keep above the water on the errands, but I did manage to get a few off the list yesterday. You know how it is - one errand leads to another and so on.
We have some house repairs that we've been putting off, and well, now is the time! At least to start the investigation and get on a list. So I've got some appointments lined up this week to chat with people, and if we decide to go through with it - well, it's going to be a mess for a while. I still have a couple more people to contact before we go into decision-making mode.
So yes, my morning was spent at the computer, but I'm loving having that little shelf. It was definitely worth the purchase, and I feel more in control, even though I'm probably not. The key now is to NOT put anything on the desktop except what I need to get done in the timeframe I have set aside for paperwork. Why is there so much? Appointments to make, phone calls to make, e-mails to answer - I swear it doesn't seem to stop.
Slow and steady - that's how I have to look at it, and getting one thing done is better than not getting anything done. So some stuff will be late - I just can't help it - I only have so many hours in the day, and I'm not frittering them away. At least, I don't think I am!
I listed and got rid of one more item yesterday. That was through the Facebook Free Stuff group. Oh boy -- I wonder what I can get rid of today? I've got some portable radios - I wonder if someone wants those? I'm new to this whole business, and there seem to be some rules. Like you have to say how you are going to award the item. Sometimes, people do lotteries if there are lots of people asking for the item. Some people say "my choice". Good grief - I give it to the first person who asks.

But I got a comment yesterday that people are only allowed to be awarded one thing per day, and I think the person to who I gave my item might be a frequent user? I don't know, and frankly, I don't care, but the more I post, the more I'll get to know people. Watch out - nothing is sacred!!! Don't worry - the girls are safe - pets are not allowed on the listings!
Then it was downstairs to get some quilt work done. I got this customer quilt done! This design is the cutest quilt I've seen. It's the second one created like this with the last name on the back of the penguins, and YES - it was made for a Pittsburgh Penguins fan. Super cute. I believe the pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman. Yes, it is - Penguin Party. Except that this customer and the other person who made a similar quilt altered some of the blocks, so it looks like the BACK of the jersey.
