I don't like Jim Carrey too much... but I'm stealing his line. "Somebody stop me!" Actually, I have stopped myself. Didn't know I could actually do that ;)
Yes, I am officially done with Ebay. For now, anyway.... I did quite well, too. Let's see, I got:
1. 2 pairs of name brand jeans for $22.59 (I know! A steal for my size ;)
2. A sapphire in 14kt yellow gold ring for $26.75
3. A sapphire in sterling for $11.95
And of course the child's items consisting of:
1. The Noddy doll for $21.95 (OMG! The only purchase where I exceeded my limit)
2. 4 Noddy books (the big ones with lots of stories) for $19.69
3. Noddy stickers $3.24.
Prices include shipping, too :) Kitty did do well!
But I am back to not being an ebayer now. I could easily get caught up in all that with my never ending collection of junk addiction. If I showed you my bedroom, you would understand. It has been in clutter overload longer than I care to mention. That is probably why I only go in there to sleep. I can't really stand clutter, it just follows me around.
Here's a pointless, drawn out story for you that tells the kind of crap I deal with at work....
You know I mentioned my favorite coworker, who just also happens to be great at artwork with the kids. She did these reindeer by tracing the kids' shoe and hands, using the feet as the face and the hands as the antlers. Sounds neat, doesn't it? They look awesome and she hung them outside our room, where we usually display the nice artwork.
Yesterday, I guess someone took them down and put up 'My Christmas list' collages the kids did using cut out magazine pictures. Not nearly as nice, but whatever....
Whoever took the reindeer down, put them in the kid's cubbies to go home. My coworker did not want them to go home yet, so she took them out and put them above the bulletin board inside our room, in front of the person who took them down. She did not say anything to anyone about taking them down from outside.
Fast forward to today, when the Christmas trees the kids made with another coworker (a paper tree with sequins and such glued on) started shedding their fake snow all over the floor, after some of our boys started throwing the balls at them. Which then prompted one of our girls to sit there and eat anything that fell to the floor.
So, I said to Molly (my fave) I think we should move those to the outside and bring the collages in here. Make sense to you? Did to me, too.
I have no idea what Mrs. Lead thought I said, but she all of a sudden got mad and said that SHE put those up there and to just leave them. Then she mumbled some other isht about "us not being there to worry about art projects and where they were, we're supposed to worry about the kids" and walked out the door to get a buggy. That's what she does when she gets mad, she leaves. Oh f'in well....
So I said to Molly and the sub we had in there that we needed to vacuum that stuff up before the girl chowing down crapped a sequin at home. Who needs that drama? We swept it up.
When Mrs. Lead came back, I said "I am sorry if I made you mad, but it is the kids I am worried about. The kid is eating the stuff, so yeah I am concerned. I could really care less about artwork and where it is or is not, but if a kid on my watch is affected by it, then yes, I am going to change that!"
She took them down and put them on the table. I asked if I should switch them with the collages and she said yeah, whatever.
I left them on the table. I don't respond to attitude. Especially when given with no idea of what in the hell I was talking about in the first place. She thought I was moving them because someone moved Molly's work. Molly is quite capable of fighting her own battles, too. That is why I like her so well, ya know :) Once Molly took her stuff out of the cubbies and put them on the wall, Molly was over it.
I was completely caught off guard by Mrs. Lead's attack. I handled it and also emailed my other two coworkers, so they would know why the trees are on the table. Andknow that I did it, and not Molly. They like to blame Molly for everything.... they're still mad she instigated the cleaning of our room! The funny thing is Molly is only 19 and is more mature than 3 of our other 4 coworkers!
Maybe I'll vie even harder for Mrs. Lead's job now ;) Keep pushing Kitty, woman.....
In other news, Gracie had her class Christmas party today. She also has another cold. She wanted to go to school because it is their last day until after the holidays and the party, of course. My girl ain't stupid ;)
I went for the party in the last hour of class and all that child did was scream how she hated everyone and every thing! I know she didn't feel well, but I will not tolerate the word hate from a child. She can 'not like' what ever she wants to, but she does not know the strength of the word hate. (I say the same thing for words like stupid and dumb, from kids). Told you all I am a militant mom....
Anyway, after I heard her say it more than I would ever let her get away with at home, that was exactly where we went. Home. I gave her some medicine, lunch, and put her butt to bed. She should be happy she was sick or she would've had some 'Dawn' in her mouth as well....
I went to work after that and Dad said she just laid on the couch most of the day. I should've kept her home. Now I know :)
Well, that's all for me. I wish I could go back in time where all I had to do all day is this:
Now, that is laid-back!
Yes, she is biting her fingernails, too. Where in heck do kids pick these things up? I haven't bitten my nails since I wiped elderly people's butts for a living and Grace has never seen me do that.... She doesn't seem like a nervous kid to me... never has been. I want to know why!
That's Sammy the horse. He arrived for her birthday :)
Have a great one....
