Wow! I can't believe I haven't been here since April--

I missed the entire summer of posting on this blog!

 Sometimes, I feel like I have so many irons in the fire--there's no time for anything else except--well uh--ironing. ugh

I'd rather be doing anything but--I don't know how many of you make a living through web sales; online auctions, stores, crafting sites, affiliate marketing and such. But it's getting tough out there. I've been selling on Ebay for 10 years and always thought it was a fairly nice way to make a living until recently. Well, actually, not real recent.  I'd say the last couple of years have taken a turn downward. I think I kept telling myself that it wasn't really happening. We'd pull out of it. Or the Democrats would start creating jobs or the Republicans would get back in office.

Actually, I'm not quite sure what happened. I do know that you can't make a living on ebay anymore, at least not selling the things I sell you can't. And most friends I have that have been ebay sellers for many many years are saying the same thing. Is it the economy? Is it Ebay? Is it online selling? I just don't know. I wish I did.

And then there's the social security thing. My mom lived just fine on social security. There's no way that can happen today. Not for me. So another strike against the baby boomer bunch.

So I guess what I'm saying is I've been darn busy all summer trying to make a living! lol! Took me plenty of time to spit that out, didn't it.

Actually, I have taken time out from a busy work schedule to watch football. Can't miss that. Though the Dallas Cowboys have made me consider the idea of skipping football season altogether this year. Yep, first time ever. I think we need to go have a little talk with Roger Staubach with a fistful of dollars. Oh yeah--he's probably too old. Dang it!

And Brett Favre. Good grief! Who does he think he is? I mean--when will these athletes Grow Up!
Oh yeah, they've been doing this forever--haven't they.
