I Did Not Fall Off The Face Of The Earth

19 Sep

For starters, sorry I have been so MIA. I made it a goal to post at least 4 times a week and I have definitely failed at that the past few weeks.

Things have been crazy busy the past week for us. Not in a bad way, just in an oh-its-9pm-and-I-have-forgotten-to-eat-all-day kind of way. School and business and family and life have consumed every second of every day lately and sleep is a commodity. The good news is that we have really been getting things knocked off our to-do list which is great.

Ebay has been great. I expected it to be more of a hobby that maybe made up 5% of our business model, but I am definitely realizing it has SO much more potential than that. Take for example last night. We went to two Goodwills and spent a total of 45 minutes and 48 dollars. Our projected profit is around $800!!! And we even had the kids with us. Super cool.

Amazon has been busy too. The poor UPS guy is probably getting really sick of seeing our house. Yesterday we came home to 5 huge packages at our door. We got it all listed and sent off to Amazon in record time!

This weekend was a family weekend. We went to our local theme park with Toms family. The kids had a blast! Ariahna was finally tall enough to ride all of the kid rides and Jordan was tall enough to ride all of the big rides. My favorite part was watching Tom, his sister, his dad and our three kids go on a raft ride. It is kind of like white water rafting. I was convinced that when we saw them come down the “river” that Nikkos would be crying and screaming, but it was quite the opposite. All six of them had huge smiles on their faces! Too cute.

Tom and I have also been talking about our work dilemma. We finally came to the conclusion that after the spring semester of school he is going to quit his job so we can run our businesses full time and he can go to school full time. We are both really at peace with this decision and I find myself constantly smiling because I am so excited about our future and our leap of faith.

Goal for this week: Post more!

Later days blog world!
