Start Selling on eBay - Decluttering and Making Money!

In trying to prepare for a baby coming here in a little over 3 months, I decided I am going to try to get rid of a ton of clothes and extra things around my house to make some extra cash. I had toyed with eBay when I was younger, making listings for my not-so-tech-savvy aunt to sell her ski gear and some designer purses, so I am not necessarily discovering eBay for the first time, but for the first time I am taking it seriously.

For the first time in for-E-ver... I'm posting.

So life is crazy. It always has been and always will be. I really REALLY wanted to get more into blogging before and I REALLY REALLY wanted to share the whole VBS with the internet here (which I will do, I took so many dang pics, I won't let them go to waste! I think I'll add an edit/update to the last VBS post and put everything on there), but this summer was busy and then fall semester hit and casual blogging was not even on my radar.

This past summer was three weeks straight of VBS prepping and then the actual VBS. My hubby was the only pastor at our church because our pastor was on sabbatical, so on top of his VBS duties, he also had his own weekly duties PLUS pastor Mike's to do. Cory and I both have a lot of experience doing VBS as volunteers, but coordinating everything is still very new to us. Needless to say, we were stressed. Lol. Because ministry isn't stressful at all, right? *sarcasm*

After VBS, August came, bringing our pastor back and us the time to go on a much-needed vacation! We went and stayed with our friends in San Francisco, CA that we hadn't been able to see for two years since they moved out there from Chicago. We drove down the coast from SF all the way to Los Angeles in a day. We then spent the next day in LA sightseeing and then driving back up to Monterey, to see my friend graduate from Presidio's language program. The rest of our week was spend back in the bay area of SF with our friends. Our last day there, right as we were about to walk out the door and leave for the airport, we FELT THE EARTHQUAKE that had hit Napa. We were in Concord, so not super close, but I think I remember it was about a 2.4 or something. It was a whirlwind of a trip, not super restful, yet it was just what we needed.

Fall semester then came. I had all kinds of school work to do. I had complications with finishing on time, but I somehow managed to squeeze extra coursework into the semester and graduated in December.

Which leads me to some bigger news (which most of my "readers" at this point already know because they know me personally)... I'm PREGNANT! I found out in October and we told everyone in November. Here's the real kicker... my little guy is due on MY BIRTHDAY! :D

The last half year or so has been a whirlwind of busy-ness. I want to start blogging casually since I'm currently unemployed and not in school. It's a wonderful way to get my thoughts out into the world. Hopefully, you'll be hearing from me soon! ;)
