A Few Random Thoughts

First of all I have some exciting news! Yesterday I won my first item on ebay. I have bought items before on ebay but I have never bid on anything. I found a Stampin' Up! background stamp that I really like and it is retired. Well I found it on ebay and a couple of days ago I placed a bid on it. I was the only bidder until I woke up Friday morning and found I had been outbid. I put in another bid and another and I was outbid every time. Well then I found another one that ended before the one I was bidding on. I bid on it and for a little bit I was the high bidder then someone outbid me. Well I waited until about 3 minutes before the bidding ended and put in another bid. I kept clicking refresh and stayed the high bidder until the end and I won. I was so excited!!! I can't wait to get it and make a really cute card with it. This is what the stamp looks like. It is called Dots and Daises.


The second thing is that yesterday I was picking up some things and I found the Valentine card I gave to Dave last year. I read it then I found the one I gave him this year and read it. I was and was amazed at the similarities. Last year and this year I started out by saying "Happy Valentines Day!" Last Year I wrote "I love you so much" and this year I wrote "I just wanted to let you know how much I love you." Last Year I wrote "You are a wonderful husband and father." This year I wrote "You are a great husband and father." Last year I wrote "I really appreciate all you do." This year I wrote "I am thankful for everything you do to provide for our family." Last year I wrote "I'm glad that you are my husband and that I am married to you." This year I wrote "I am so glad that I am your wife." Last year I wrote I love you and couldn't ask for anyone better and this year I wrote I could not ask for more. Anyway, I did not look at last years card at all when I wrote inside this years card. I am amazed at how similar they are. Here is the proof.


If you read my previous post you will recall that Landon had a tooth pulled at the dentist. He came home from the dentist and put his tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy. Friday morning I woke up and realized that the tooth fairy forgot to come. Dave had this realization too. I asked Landon about it and told him that sometimes the tooth fairy forgets and that maybe she will remember to come tonight. Well this morning I woke up about 5:30 with the realization that once again the tooth fairy forgot. I woke Dave up and said "Tooth fairy." Dave hopped out of bed and took care of it. When Landon woke up I asked him how much he got from the tooth fairy and he said $1.00! Boy has the price of teeth gone up. I think that I got a dime or something for my teeth. He was pretty excited. Now we will have to take him to the dollar section of Target so he can get something with it. We will try to be a better tooth fairy with the next ones.

The last thing is that I played the Wii at my parents house tonight. I did bowling and I broke my record. I got 3 strikes in a row and probably a total of 4 strikes and about 3 spares. My final score was 197. I love the Wii. Now if I could just do that well at regular bowling!

About the ebay thing, I'm afraid you are now addicted. Bidding can be too fun. Be careful. :)

I was addicted to Ebay for a few years and am now in recovery! I think the tooth fairy should come back when you start losing teeth as an old person!

Congratulations! E-Bay winner! I think you can put that on your resume. And I agree with you on the Wii...SO much fun!

Yay! Yay! for your fun new stamp. My sister has that one and I LOVE it. I had to laugh at your similar v-day cards. I have a tendancy to write the same things over and over too. It might be repetative, but it's all true!

I can honestly say that I have never bought anything on e-bay. I may very well be the only one in the world over the age of 12 who can say this. Congrats on your winning!
