I will do my normal "Top 10 ebay Sales" soon. Perhaps tomorrow. 

I wanted to blog about life around my house right now. I use this blog half as a personal journal, half to hopefully help ebay sellers. The two don't always mesh. 

I belong to a group of about 300 ebay clothing sellers who have their own board. We post questions and enjoy each other as co-workers every day. We encourage each other to list and complain about buyers. We had a Secret Santa and I got my box yesterday. It was so fun to open.

On Thursday I went to my third knee surgeon. My first surgeon was young - about my age. The second was old. I believe he was about 80-82. This one is right in the middle. Ha. I have faith that he will be able to come up with a fix. I am willing to do almost anything at this point. He wasn't sure what was wrong. My knee is very squishy due to a lot of fluid (i.e. swelling). 

I went for bloodwork after the doctors and for an MRI Thursday. I think this was my 6th MRI. I go back to the doctor on the 19th to find out what is going on. 

On the plus side, I now have a wonderful collection of hospital socks: red, several gray pairs, tan and blue. Ha.

It is snowing again. We have quite a bit of on the ground and more is expected. I am okay with the snow at this point in December as long as I don't have to go out. Today is one of those days. 

Last night we got our new washer & dryer delivered. We purchased them & the pedestals on the Home Depot website on Black Friday. The pedestals showed up UPS two days after we purchased them. 

They were suppose to be installed. Home Depot advertises free installation. However, ours were not installed. Ours are sitting in the middle of our laundry room. There was something about the delivery men not being able to hot wire them. They are still quite lovely just sitting there.

And so we called up our contractor friend and he came over this morning. He is shopping for the parts right now. Hopefully we will have working machines by tonight. 

My husband making me laugh with his crazy poses.

Well, that is about all for now. I am off to take some photos for ebay and hopefully list a few things.


  1. Mellissa, I hope you find out what is wrong with your knee! You are way too young to have such problems with a knee! Prayers coming your way! Your washer and dryers look great! Hopefully they will be usable soon!
