Well I really didn't do much at all today, except sit on my duff and surf the net. What a productive day - NOT! My neck an shoulder are feeling enough better so that I can turn my head without wincing or shouting miserably, so I should be able to go to work tomorrow with no problem. I'm not sure whether or not I should do my exercise routine or Pilates routine until it's more healed.

One of my surveyors called me ad nauseum today, trying to figure out how to catch the bus she's supposed to be surveying. I'm not really sure why she kept calling me after I told her the only idea I had for her to do. At least it was only using weekend minutes and not anytime minutes.

I was catching up a bit on the forums here, and came across Jeffery's $20 into $5000 challenge. It started back in July I guess. I'd been considering trying to find some ways to make some money, as well as get rid of more stuff, so this challenge I guess was just the kick in the pants I needed. I rumaged around a bit and found this prepaid phone card I'd gotten as a gift eons ago, an ethernet cable that I had never used, and a One-Year Bible (have SO many Bibles!) and then I listed all of them on Ebay. I also found some books, some scrabook pages, a beautiful scarf that came from somewhere in Europe - but I really have no use for it, and some silver bracelets an ex of mine gave me years ago that I've held onto for some reason. I'm going to list the other items maybe tomorrow. I'm not sure how to list the bracelets exactly, because I really don't know much about jewlery -and I'm not sure about the scarf either. I'm going to ask my dad also if he has anything he'd like me to sell for him. Smile

I also spent some time today looking at my website. I'm really not sure what to do with it. It represents several hundred hours of designing and maintenance time, but it was purposed for when I was teaching. I really hate to delete all of that work and time I put into it, but it's just not serving any purpose for me anymore. I still own the domain name (not a name that anybody else would think of in a million years, I'd imagine). I'd like to use it again, and maybe sign up for google's ad sense and a few other affiliate type things, but I'm not sure what I'd put on there to draw traffic. Maybe make it a blog and call it "Musings of an Out of Work Frugal Singleton." Smile

Well, it's not quite time to head off to bed. Maybe I'll spend some more time surfing the net - or horrors! maybe do something more productive, like, heaven forbid - put my laundry away???? Smile
