Is anyone else starting radiation in October? I was supposed to start today but it took them so long to do the x-rays and more markings that they mercifully postponed the treatment until tomorrow--which is October. I will be having 30 treatments over six weeks.

Kamboka, I can understand that. I have trouble with some people wearing masks, as it muffles their speech.

mocame, I am glad you are having sales! Ebay sales have picked up. August is usually a slow month for me.

Wow, it sounds like I'm missing out on some great sales this summer. I had a good June and early July. I had so many sales leading up to the 4th as I was trying to get my reunion organized. Luckily, my mom's helper was able to help me with my packing. He really enjoyed it. Every time he heard the phone 'ding', he knew it was time to wrap.

My brother told me to be happy I am working and not worry about the ka-ching. I still miss the sound. I'm supposed to be back here in October but there might be some delays that will keep me in FL for October. I'll relist then and I plan to have a garage sale. I think I've got my sister hooked now as she was the one saying we need to do a sale.

I got two more weeks here and back to some warmer weather. It's not bad here being low 70s just so cloudy and a bit depressing. I'm definately a sunshine girl.

I have a confession to make...I've never heard my Ka-ching from an ebay sale! I have to keep my sound off during work and at night and that is when I get a lot of my sales. It's just never worked out that I've heard it. My sales have slowed a little bit. I've only sold 2 or 3 items a week, but I won't complain because I still haven't listed anything in 3 months.

Last week I was working 10 hour days and then running over to my daughter's school to help her in her new classroom until 8:00 or 9:00PM every night. She got a teaching just right out of college, which is rare. She is very thankful and very excited! She will be teaching 4th grade. I'm hoping I'm done with my 10 hour work days. Work is busy but not as bad as it was, so I am thankful. I actually got up this morning to exercise, which is the first time in months!

mocame, My sales are down as well. Usually August is one of the worst months for me. People are getting children back to school and not buying my trinkets. That is great for your daughter. I taught special needs, then 3rd and 4th grade before I went back to school to be a nurse and then back to school for my masters in Health care administration. Fun grades to teach.

Kamboka, The afternoon storms have slowed down this week and my yard has already dried out.

My sister in law is a teacher. It's funny that she's not a kid person but loves teaching those grades. She's in a school with some really smart and motivated kids so it makes it easier.

I have about 10 more days before coming back. We have national elections on Wednesday and it is a holiday. We are hoping for peaceful elections but you never know. I need to go to get some food to keep in the room so I don't have to spend $30 for a ham and cheese sandwich!

Kamboka, $30 for a sandwich, yikes! It must be difficult to stay on a healthy diet. Today it is 3 years since surgery.

petite1: how time flies! You reminded me that my last surgery was the first week of August.

Today is election day. So far, so good but it really will matter when the results are released in a few days. We are hoping for peace.

I leave here next Tuesday night to start my 30 something hour journey home. September will be a busy month with my vacation and my ending one contract and starting another one that will take me back here in October. Looks like I might not have time to relist any of my Ebay things.

Kamboka, Yes, time flies. Any special plans for your vacation? I did vote. Mostly all local stuff.
