Hey Strangers!

Hello Dear Readers,

Can you believe it's almost been two months since I've posted anything? Crazy, just crazy. Last month and this month have been a real whirlwind of activity for me. I've been doing gangbusters on E-bay, listing just a ton of stuff and had some pretty decent success with sales. And I've even been putting money into my bank account.  I was doing well with not buying new dolls but this month we've had a few.... splurges.

One of those splurges was Invisa-Billy from the Monster High. I've been sort of wanting him, but when Amazon had him on sale for 9.99 with free prime shipping I decided to get him. However when he arrived he had a noticeable chip to his leg paint still in the box (with nothing touching the area) so I ended up exchanging him. My replacement came today and .... not good. This one has some more paint chips to his leg (not as bad as the first one), but also has some extra plastic on one side of his lip, so he's going back. And not for an exchange, for a return. I've had enough experience with poor quality control to know that my third option won't be any better. I guess I really don't need Billy. At least that's what Amazon thinks so.  

I've also made some big strides in the employment front. I'm making progress, but there's still a long way to go.

I know this is a quick update, but I just wanted to drop in and let you all know what's been going on!
