Things which are nice and/or good.

1) Mrs. CPA gave me a ROFL award this month! That rocks my socks! I'm very humbled that someone as funny as she is was amused by me. The post that she awarded me for my ode to dating in:The Guy with George Bush on this wall.

2) It's Friday. Thank.You. Jesus.

3) Tomorrow I am getting freaking high speed internet at home! Okay, I know I'm probably one of the last people on the planet to get it, but so what? I'm getting it!

4) Today I am getting my new washer and dryer. I never though I'd say this, but I am so pleased that I will get to wash clothes! Don't tell anyone okay, but I'm wearing the same jeans today that I was on Monday. Since they have a big rip in the pocket, I'm sure an observant person would notice. Thankfully most people I work with have their own drama and stay out of mine.

5) This morning I had fifteen minutes to sit and talk to my husband. That almost never happens in the mornings. Usually he is still asleep when I leave. It takes me forty minutes to get to work so I have to be out of the house no later than seven a.m. It takes him about five minutes to get to work and he doesn't have to be in until 8:30am. But this morning he was going to go in early and get some reports done so he was actually up before me. Weird. Anyway, we had a chance to talk for a few minutes and I explained to him a lot of the crap going on at work. He was very supportive even when I said, "I hate being a grown-up!" He did kind of chuckle at me, but that was all.

6) Did I mention it's Friday? Thank. You. Sweet. Lord.

7) I cleaned my children's bathroom last night. I know that on the surface that wouldn't appear to be nice and/or good in any conceivable way, but this morning when I went in there to get my daughter's hairbrush and the floor was all shiny and clean and it didn't smell like, you know, pee or anything and the toilet was all sparkling...well, it made me happy.

8) I sold a crap ton of stuff on eBay recently. Well not SO much, but I had over $100 in my PayPal account last night and that makes me gleeful for two reasons. Less crap in my house, and money in my pocket.

9) I need some money in my pocket, because I broke down and bought myself an It Bag last night. I had an It Bag before. I got it in December of 2003 and I carried it every single day until October 2006 when it (and I) got soaked in a tremendous rainstorm while watching my son's soccer game. They lost too. Anyway, for some reason I had a red pen in my bag and it broke and the red ink soaked through the lining and everything, EVERYTHING about my beautiful bag was completely ruined, the beautiful blue liner, the rainbow zipper, everything. They didn't have the same style I got before so I got the bucket bag in Periwinkle. Which was on sale for $56 off the normal price. Score! I figure if I can carry it for the next three years it will end up being like, really, really cheap. I love it.

10) And...IT'S FRIDAY!

You are not the last. My mother is still on dial-up. I love the bag, too.

I'm still on dial up but more out of sheer laziness with the move than anything else.

That bag is FABU....

$100 from ebay? That's not too bad.

What in the hell do you sell on ebay

Hi, I found you through the ROFL awards, and it is well-deserved! That date was so wretched it was hilarious. I'm adding you to my Bloglines right now. Plus, I like saying your blog title out loud, because it sounds like something I would say, only with my husband's name instead of Jason's.

Sheeesh, longest comment ever.

It's great to make money on ebay for selling crap. I mean, it isn't crap to someone else...but you get money for getting rid of your own crap! That's so cool. LOL

Too bad you don't appreciate Fridays more, though.

I've never had a purse that cost more than $15. Seriously. I think I'm jealous now.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the bag. So much that I am pleading with the money maker in the house to get me one for my approaching birthday if I PROMISE not to eat for a week. I want one in each color. I am highly addicted to bags and that one is making my addiction soar higher!

I LOVE when I see the amt. in my PayPal account climbing. Over the summer, I sold all my maternity clothes and any clothes my daughter had grown out of and made close to $200. I have to get on that bandwagon again...four HUGE totes crammed with stuff to be listed. Hmmm...perhaps the bag will be my motivation!!

Happy Weekend :)
