My life is has been hectic lately. I actually cried one day last week because I felt so overwhelmed. But I picked myself up and kept on going.

On the eBay front things are not so good. I will admit it has been over 3 weeks since I listed. And no listings means little to no sales. Don’t you hate how that works? By the time I get home for the day I am exhausted and eBay is the last thing on my mind. And the time change isn’t helping any. When we get home my daughter thinks it’s bedtime because it’s dark outside already. I did get a few listed yesterday and my goal is to do 5 today. I need money quickly (more on that later) so any free time I get I will be listing from now on. Unfortunately all the free time I have isn’t very much.

The girls are doing great. Baby Ella is growing (really growing) and doing wonderfully. No effects from the drugs are showing. She is a happy baby. But she has so many appointments lately besides the twice weekly visits with parents. Being a single mom is hard! Andi is blossoming. Sometimes I’m amazed of the things she says or does. I still see her as my little baby. I did decide to take her out of ballet and only leave her in gymnastics. I have too much on my plate right now. This week alone I have two appoints today for the girls (McStart and Parents as Teachers), tomorrow I have PTA and my monthly concurrent parents class, Thurs I have parent teacher meeting and gymnastics. Friday I have a vet appointment. Every week has been like this lately. Next week I’m  scheduling an official burn out. Wish me luck!

On a personal note, I’m running off and getting married next month. I am engaged. I guess I won’t be a single mom for long. His name is Jason and he is great with the girls which is a major plus. I don’t have the money or energy to have a huge wedding and don’t want to plan over a year in advance so we are going to have a very small wedding next month in a chapel in Monterey followed by a lunch at a local restaurant for everyone who attends. A toast and cake and it will be done. Just what I need right now, nothing complicated. But this is the reason I need money! I don’t want to charge anything if possible. So hopefully I can get some extra money from eBay and pay everything cash.

I hope everyone is doing well and is ready for the holidays. I know there are so many people on the east coast affected by weather and as much as I stress I also feel grateful for everything I have. They have all been in my prayers.


  1. Congratulations on getting married!!It sounds like it will be a wonderful wedding-I wish my husband and I had a smaller ceremony when we tied the knot.I was so stressed that I didn't get to enjoy it like I wanted.

  2. Congratulations Veronica! That's big and exciting news! I hope you'll post pictures!

  3. Veronica,
    Your last post, "I'm famous" isn't coming up for me. When I click on the link I get this message:
    Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist.

    This has been happening to a few other blogs I follow as well. Don't know if it's a glitch on my end or on blogger's end.
    Anyway, I hope you and the girls are doing well. Are you married yet???
