I can't believe it has taken me this long, but I am only now participating in my first eBay auction(s) ever. I've had my account for over two years now, and I've often looked at items for offer and even created searches for items I'm interested in, but I've never before placed a bid.

Out of the 7 auctions that have closed so far, I've won 6, waiting for 3 more to see before I settle up.

I accidentally discovered that I had an OB appointment today, luckily before the time of the appointment. The doc was in a very weird mood today, practicing her Spanish on us, I think she was happy it was the end of the day, but it freaked hubby out a bit. I think his words were, 'your doctor is nuts.' Now we just need to learn how to say that in Spanish.

And finally - my latest freecycle success. Hubby spotted a compound sliding mitre saw that was in non-working condition and I managed to snag it for him. Turns out the guy that had it got it from someone else that couldn't fix it either. Hubby both loves to take motors apart and fix them, as well as getting stuff for free, so he was pretty happy. Turns out the saw needs a $10 part to stop it from shorting out, and there is a shop in town that stocks them. So by tonight, hubby should have this saw:



for $10!
Who does she think she is?

'your doctor is nuts' in Spanish would literally be su médico es nueces. But if you wanted, you could change nueces to loco for "your doctor is crazy". :)

Glad you made it to your OB appointment. I take it all is well with you and the little bean :)
I had to stop visiting e-bay because I was hooked on winning. I ended up winning stuff just to outbid the others and win...and most of the time, I really didn't want the item (ugh!).
When you have a man around the house that is handy and smart, it's good to find these things. He just saved a bundle!

PS-love your Breakfast Club icon.

All is still good, she is still big, I am still big *g*

I can see how eBay could really become addictive.

And as long as he doesn't burn the house down, I'm pretty happy with his 'finds' *g*
