...and only two more workdays until my day off! Yay!
Yep, I'm taking Friday off of work. Why? No specific reason... I'd just been feeling like I could use a day off with nothing planned to use my time. However, I am planning on mowingthe lawn if the weather holds... which means I'll have to fill the gas can! We've had these huge bare patches in the back yard for some time, and I need to get some grass seed before then, too. The plan is to mow, then before emptying the bag, I'll throw some grass seed down on the bare spots and cover it with the clippings.
Hopefully, it'll work, and the grass will start growing there!
Wednesday we'll be watching Jaeger again. His owner, Kathy, was here earlier tonight with him, to see if Krypto's new crate would be big enough for Jaeger and Krypto to stay in it while I'm at work. Since the crate is supposed to be big enough for a Great Dane, it's more than adequate for the task!
Last few nights, I've been working on some new auctions to put upon eBay, and I got the first group up tonight... mostly 70s comics in various lots, plussome mags aboutcomics,and the Top Cat and Tweety books I picked up lastweekend.
Apparently,Ireally need to get more Katy Keene comics...within an hour of putting upthelot of three books I had, they sold forthe Buy It Now price! Been awhile since I had a lot sell that fast! You can check out my auctions atthis link (assuming I've coded the HTML correctly there).
There will be a bunch of other auctions going up over the next week or two... tomorrow I'll photograph some additional lots, probably write the text up Thursday night, and post 'em Friday... maybe even Thursday, depending on how long it takes.
Let's see, what else is going on? My review at work should be happening any day now... I know this because last week I wrote up my self-evaluation (did I mention that already?). My boss says it's the most complete self-eval she's ever seen.
To be honest, I'm not entirely certain why I put so much time in it... word is that budgets are decided well in advance of reviews being written, so my raise had more or less been decided before I even started the self-eval. At least, that's what I'd been told by some of my co-workers. I am hoping for a very nice raise this time around... because frankly, I really need the money, which should be obvious from the whining I've done here in the past about not having enough of it, as well as all the eBay auctions I've held.
Oh, that reminds me... I have a few men's blazers to sell on eBay, but they don't have any size information on them. Does anyone reading this have a clue what measurements I should take, and how to take them, so I can put those up for sale?
That's all for now...
