Are pictures not working on the blogs again?

November 15th, 2019 at 10:23 am

Looks like pics in my old entries are not coming up, and I am not able to add pics to my new entries. Anyone else? Do we know if this has been reported?

Thank you!

Cleaning up the babies room and made free $20!

November 12th, 2019 at 01:14 pm

When I was pregnant last year with the twins my MIL sent me $100 to buy maternity clothes. I ordered a bunch of clothes from Kohls online and unfortunately they were delivered to our house while I was inpatient for my preterm labor. So when we got home the bag didn't even get opened, just thrown into the babies room and the door closed.

We have been trying to get some of their mementos and things organized and I finally made myself open the bag of maternity clothes. There were a few baby items in there and I added them to my for sale items and also found a pair of Womens Gloria Vanderbilt black jeans in the package....this is not my style at all and I could not figure out why I would have ordered them??? I looked through the receipt and there was no charge for them on the receipt! Evidently they were added to my package in error. I posted them the same day on FB and sold them already for $20.00!

The baby 4th of July items I have boxed up till summer to post for sale.

Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans - Regular Price $50.00
I paid $0
Sold for $20.00 on FB on 10/27/19
Profit = $20.00

The twins 1st birthday - Just trying to survive

November 3rd, 2019 at 05:08 pm

The twins 1st birthday is this week so MO and I are just trying to survive. It's been awful leading up and we are both totally mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted.

I took the day off of work, and the day after as well to give myself a long weekend. I wasn't sure if I should as I will probably need distractions that day, but I think I have plenty of house work and FB Sales stuff to work on to keep me busy. Plus this way if I just want to go take a nap or just go sit and cry I can.

I just miss my babies so much.

November 1st, 2019 at 01:55 pm

Today is the 1st of the month and one of our renters texted and let us know they are going to be late on part of their rent. Hopefully it won't turn into an issue, but we have a ton of medical bills and other bills plus overspending to cover, so most likely will need to take from savings to cover the different till she pays in full. But, in the meantime we did (just barely) pass $18K!
