Hi Stampers :
Happy Sunday friends !
Lets start off today with something I did this last week for the 1st time ever in my life ... Now that it's over~ it's probably not that amazing or earth moving BUT lets start from the begining ..
Hubby left from work which is usually before 6:00am and when I get a phone call that early I usually start praying cause I know something has happened . Don't you hate those kind of ph calls? My heart sinks every time that phone rings early in the morning which doesn't happen much Thank you God!
Hubby has been driving Jessie's last car ( 2002 Grand Prix ) and well as to be expected when that phone rang he called to tell me he broke down on telegraph road. I had to go get him and the car via a Tow with his truck .
I never had to actually tow someone before so you can only imagine what I was thinking . Was I going to drive the truck or was I going to drive the car in tow ???? hubby said since the car couldn't start the power steering was out and there was no way I could drive it . so that left me driving the truck .. OH my goodness .
15 MPH down a major road in the middle of morning traffic BUT Praise God seriously It was like God blew the cars out of our way and didn't stop much at any traffic lights on our way home.. Which on a normal day driving from there would be like 12 mins tops driving 15 MPH took us close to an hour .
Praise God no one beeped at us/me cause that would have freaked me out . Seriously Why do people have to do that anyway ???
Happy to report though once we got home guess what ? The tow rope broke & the car started it just sounds like little gremlins are living under the hood . God is so AWESOME!
So thats 1 of the many things on the list to do to take it in and see if it's worth fixing ..
This last week we also recieved a new pool cover for a really great price .. But then again when hubby can do just about anything and everything that helps in the costs instead of having someone else install it .
Jessie and her B/F ( Pat) carved pumpking this last week . Can you guess who did what ?? Pretty clever HUH?
Pat's Pumpkin is the Deer and Jessie's is Minnie Mouse .
On more update: My moms new phone . I did tell you she upgraded right? and BOY did she upgrade LOL! She went from her old phone "The Brick" is what we all called it to the iphone .
She is ( good thing you're sitting down ) texting and loving everything about her new phone . We seriously NEVER thought this day would arrive & we are all so excited she finally got a new phone :) We are so proud of her stepping out of her comfort zone and getting the new phone ~ Way to go Mom!!
On a Funny note the guy at Verizon said we should donate her phone to the Antique Road show LOL! also Mom was almost forced to get a new phone in the next few months anyway... because she was having a hard time finding batteries for it ~ how funny is that ?
Hubby took me shopping at Jareds on Friday night and he bought me this new Pandora bracelet along with new silver earrings . WOW What did I do to deserve such spoiling ?? I must have done a fabulous job in that tow LOL!
Retired sets for a new home :
I have been uploading retired stamp sets to my list over the last few days . The photo above show the sets I have done and the other photo ( below) is of the sets I still need to photograph & get uploaded ( yes those boxes under the table are filled with sets that need to be uploaded too ~ YIKES! )
It may take awhile to get them all uploaded But I keep saying "baby steps" a little at a time isn't so overwhelming right ? . Those I have uploaded You can check them all out HERE .
There is also a Button/link to all my retired sets on the left hand side of my blog incase you want to check the list out later . The button says "RETIRED FOR SALE" I will be adding more sets this upcoming week .
Here are some FAQ's about the retired stamp sets :
- I welcome pay pal payments and Personal Checks/ Money Orders for those items you want .
- Please email me the set/s you want with the email subject line RETIRED SETS so I don't miss it ( well hopefully I don't )
- I will mark the stamp sets that stampers have requested as Spoken for/ SOLD and those will not be available unless something falls through with the purchase .
- I will ship the retired sets within the USA Only please .
- Shipping : I will get the less expensive way to ship for you BUT if the set/s you order fit into a Flat Rate priority envelope this will be the way items will be shipped for $5.00
- Clear / Wood mount sets : Since there are a mix of sets over there Clear Mount ( C) and Wood Mount ( W) it would help when you email me your request for the sets you want if you could put a C or W by the item this will make it easier for me to look it up on my hard copy list for location .
- If you run your cursor over the photo it should show if the stamp set is spoken for/ sold. I will try and keep the updated
