I WON!!!!

Friday I wrote about how I was waiting for something.
Yes, it was an Ebay auction, and Yes, I WON!!

With 7 seconds left, I jumped in and made my bid, sniping the item away from the poor unsuspecting person who previously had the highest bid.

Too bad for them.

OK, maybe I do feel a bit sorry for them. Goodness knows I've had that happen to me before. I'll put in my bid with like 4 or 5 seconds left, I'm then told that I'm the highest bidder, only to have someone bid again with 2 seconds left, then I lose.

Or, I put in my bid with just a few seconds left, only to find that my internet connection is slow and my bid gets in after the bidding has closed.

I really hate when that happens.

But still, everything is great, because as I mentioned before ............

I WON!!!

There's nothing like getting something you need for less than 1/4 the original cost.

I LOVE ebay!

And I'm glad that I had such a great day Friday, because so far, today isn't looking so good.

By 9:00 this morning, I had the opportunity to do an extra load of laundry, give Max a bath, take another shower myself, and mop the bathroom floor.

Apparently, Max isn't feeling well, and let me know this by throwing up all over the front of my shirt, his pajamas, and the bathroom floor.

After we got everything cleaned up, Max took me in to the bathroom and said "Mom, you need to make a hole in my potty."
"What do you mean I have to make a hole in your potty?"
"You also need to make a hole in the bottom of my potty so I can flush it!"

This looks like it's going to be a fun day.

So, what did you win!?!? And I hope cute Max feels better soon.

Oh, and I still need to email you back. I actually posted that quiz on my blog sometime ago, but I don't remember how many 5 year-olds I could beat up.

And it looks like Olive Garden beat out Goodwood. I know.

Congratulations! What a relief. I still think it was mean of you to post that last one. I mean for those of us who don't do the ebay thing and are obviously out of the loop. Good thing you have some kind readers that put me out of my misery with their guesses.

I already know what it was, but ahem..did you think you would get away with NOT posting a picture of the dang things!?

Melissa said...

Ah... ebay! It's like an online yard sale!!! Is there anything better??

I love the idea of Ebay, but I never win anything!

Did you get a glass banana to go with the glass grapes?

Heidi said...

Congratulations. For some reason I thought maybe you had the world's longest pregnancy test. I was going to hook you up with one of the two-minute ones. Because hours? Way too long to wait.

While you mop up the floor and change sheets, just chant, "I'm a winner! I'm a winner!" over and over. Works wonders, believe me.

YEA YOU! So, what did you win? Did I somehow miss it? Was it more grapes? Apples to go with the grapes? I'm at the edge of my seat!

What did you win?
As long as Max doesn't find a drill I think the hole thing is safe. I am sorry he iis sick, there is nothing worse.
