Happy 4th of July!

Wishing all those stateside a Happy 4th of July!  If only I could gain my independence from DEBT! lol....I'm grateful for a day to celebrate.  Husband went into work this morning.  I told him only till 12pm since its a holiday.  He's trying to get all his work squared away before we leave on our trip :) 
Kiddos just about have everything they need.  Hubby and I will probably try to maximize on the 4th of July sales and get what we need today. 

This morning, I woke up to find some of the china pieces I had listed on Ebay had sold!  I initially invested $50 on three boxes of dishes (about 100 pieces).  I have already recouped my investment on 16 pieces so I'm pleased.  I also had gone garage sailing with the parents and had found a couple of old bottles for a dollar each.  I was happy to sell them for over $30.  My Ebay sales have helped tremendously with our daily expenses. I am able to pay our bills and have money for the week. 

I was also able to work in some girl time. The friendship has been a bit rocky but I decided to meet for dinner.  Although I was happy to get out, I was reminded why we had not seen each other.  I have made the difficult decision to take a break from this person. Oh well, be careful what you wish for! 

Kiddo2 is going through cable withdrawl.  I keep hearing "I need LIVE TV!" LOL!!  The rest of us have fared pretty well.  I have been watching my shows online and its worked out well :) 

Well, I'm off to get dressed then get a few things for tonight.  Kiddo2 wants to make hotdogs and cupcakes!

Have a Happy Wednesday :)
