Selling my Cybook on eBay

I finally took the time to list my Cybook on eBay tonight. It's hard to let it go but.....I have to do it. Here is the link in case any of you are interested. I am selling it with 79 books loaded onto it. I have a list of the books in the auction, as well as details on the Cybook itself. =)

Holy Strawberry Batman!

I thought I would take a picture of my huge strawberry. Teehee This is just one of them. I bought 4 plastic containers of them because they looked so yummy. The boxes were only $2 so frankly...I couldn't resist. I haven't seen strawberries like these since I left California 7 years ago. I snack on them out of the box or do I make something with them? Hmmmm decisions decisions.

My cat is driving me insane!

Many of you have seen my videos of Chewie and think he is the cutest thing. In fact, some of you have told me that you would love a cat like him. Well....after this week, you can have him! He is driving me insane.

Don't get me wrong, I love my cat. He is very sweet and cuddly. He snuggles and has this really cute snotty sounding purr when he is really happy.

I have been trying to monitor how much he eats because he is starting to get a little heavy and has a kitty belly. According to the new bag of food, he should be getting about 3/4 - 1 cup of food a day. SO....I am using a 1/4 measuring cup and feeding him 3 times a day. Well, that was the plan, he's getting fed about 4 times a day because he keeps whining. When I say whining, please translate that to mean - caterwauling, jumping on top of me, trying to get into his food in the kitchen, and doing things he knows he isn't supposed to do. I'm sure you know what I mean if you have children. He does that thing where they think any attention is good attention. Chewie's particular bag of tricks includes chewing on my shelves, chewing on the metal handle that opens my window, licking my pictures that are accessible to him when he squeezes his head in a drawer, etc.

He does this, like clockwork, at 5 AM in the morning.....every day. I am trying to not "reward" him when he is being a pain so I have to wait until he shuts up for at least 2 minutes before I feed him. At 5 AM, those minutes seem to last forever. Why can't he be good like his brother, Tigger?

Object of Joy Part 1

Today I received my new object of joy, this BEAUTIFUL signed jersey. For those of you that aren't familiar with Liquigas, it's a cycling team from Italy. This jersey was signed while at the Tour of California this year. The riders on the team were: Ivan Basso, Kjell Carlstrom, Francesco Chicchi, Daniel Oss, Jacopo Guarnieri, Vincenzo Nibali, Brian Vandborg, and Alessandro Vanotti. Thanks to Rory for helping me out on this one.

I was pretty bummed that once again, I would be missing the Tour of California. Of course they started the ToC AFTER I moved. What's up with that? I was even more disappointed because a few days before the ToC started, I found out that the Tour of Missouri isn't going through Branson this year. BOOO I don't get to help organize the Branson leg of the ToM, the thing I have looked forward to for the past two years. That also means I don't get to see the riders/teams AND that my trying to learn Italian is pointless (seeing as there aren't any Italians out here).

The ToC was a great race this year. The crowds were INSANE! I suppose part of me was a little relieved that I didn't have to deal with those crowds. I don't like when people walk right through tends to tick me off. I loved watching it on the VS channel each day and reading the different blogs and seeing the pictures. It helped me keep up with things and I didn't feel like I was missing as much, or so I kept telling myself.

That being said, the jersey wipes all of my complaining away. =) Now I just need to figure out a good way to frame it. I have found a few great ideas but they are pretty spendy.

Here's a pic with me wearing it. YEP, I know it's a tad huge but that's ok....I won't be wearing it, just framing it. Wahooo
