A Few Small Updates

On the House-Hunting Trip
I finished writing the post with Part 2 of the story of our house-hunting trip, but was unable to share it with you because the YouTube videos would never load properly. Since I don't want to share the post without the videos, you'll have to be patient. We're heading to town later in the week, so I'll try to download them while I'm on 4G service...this living in the country stinks when you need a fast, dependable Internet connection.

On the Diet
Day #1 of the diet went well yesterday; I ate a ton of fruit and cabbage soup and was never hungry. As you can see below, I lost 2.5 pounds! I put on a clean pair of jeans this morning and they actually fit the way they were supposed to, which is a huge improvement.

Today was Day #2 and I started out the day with a large baked potato with a pat of butter. After eating fruit all day yesterday, the potato was awesome. I've since had a bowl of cabbage soup and two large salads, and I'm feeling a little hungry. Guess it's time for more soup and another bowl of salad!

On the Reopening of the Online Shop
We finally broke down and bought some pegs so that Hubby could finish putting the shelves in the bookcases that will house the inventory after it's listed in the shop. Now I have no more excuses to delay starting to list new items.

Starting tomorrow I'll pull out a box of inventory at random, open it up, take some pictures, and get those items listed. Once that box is done, I'll open the shop and let you know. Every few days you'll see more items added; some that had previously been listed in the shop and others that are completely fresh. If there's something that you're really wanting to see listed, let me know and I'll see if I can find the proper box.

I'll also be uploading thumbnails of the items that I'm listing on Pinterest, so if you've become addicted to "pinning", you can follow us on Pinterest and see all the latest goodies at a glance. I've just started my "boards" yesterday so there's nothing yet to see, but once the shop is open you'll start seeing more "pins" on my "boards".
