2012 in 2012 – Week 10

Week Ten – not too eventful *sigh* – I found it’s much too difficult to purge when you can’t walk! My foot is healing nicely, according to my surgeon, but we did have a small scare when one night this week I developed a mild fever; then it woke me up in the middle of the night with pain and extreme itching. I went back to the doctor and he thinks I was having a reaction to the betadine they use as an antiseptic. God-willing, we will be able to remove the stitches on Monday and I will be to begin walking and driving again – yay! I also need to start exercising again so I can get back to this!

For this week’s dismal results…

Donated:

  • Nothing

Thrown Away:

  • 3 Non-Disposable Razors & their Stands
  • 1 Pair of Underwear
  • 1 Adult T-shirt
  • 1 Adult Pair of Pants
  • 1 Adult Pair of Shorts
  • 1 Broken Dry Erase Board

Sold

  • 6 Fairy Figurines

I am very glad I didn’t report these sold items last week ’cause this post would be very thin! I purposely left them out last week even though they sold during that time. They hadn’t been paid for yet, and I have had experiences with some ebay sales where things never get paid for…

Totals:

  • Donated: 0 Items
  • Thrown Away: 8 Items
  • Sold: 6 Items

Week 10: 1657 – 14 = 1643

Yuck! I think I was supposed to average 41 items per week, not 14! Heal foot! Heal! We will be back to our regularly scheduled program in a week or two. Is anyone else purging? It’s not too late to get started – please consider joining me. Have a good week everyone.

2012 in 2012 – Weeks 8-9

Yikes! It’s been two weeks since my last update! But I have a really good reason: I had foot surgery last Friday. It should have been a simple surgery, but since it was on the foot, I can’t put weight on it while it heals, so I can’t walk for 2-3 weeks. The fact that it’s on my right foot means I can’t drive either. So life’s been a little complicated, yet a little boring for the last week! As a result, I’m going to be combining the last two weeks’ purges into one.

So, for both weeks, here goes:
Donated:

  • 1 Pair of Socks
  • 1 Cell Phone
  • 4 Chargers

Thrown Away:

  • 4 Re-Usable Plastic Food Containers (re-used 3 of them again in an art project with plaster of paris)
  • 12 Pairs of Socks
  • 1 More Pair of Tights (Diva is hard on her tights!)
  • 2 Pairs of Underwear
  • 3 Adult T-shirts
  • 2 Adult Pairs of Pants
  • 2 Children’s Pairs of Pants
  • 1 Broken DVD
  • 5 Almost Empty Bottles of Old Cleaners
  • 1 Dish Washer Detergent Dispenser
  • 1 Tattered Shelf Liner
  • 1 Broken Glass
  • 4 Old Sponges
  • 3 Cracked/Broken Plates
  • 2 Expired Food Packets
  • 1 Broken Game
  • 2 Dried Out Bottles of Glitter Glue
  • 3 Broken Tokens
  • 1 Stack of Used Bulletin Board Letters

Sold:

  • 2 Hoppy VanderHare Rabbits
  • 1 Thomas Waterfall Building
  • 4 Pieces of Switch Track
  • 2 Pieces of Wacky Track
  • 2 Pieces of Criss-Cross Track

As you can see, I did get some items listed on ebay before the surgery. I am thankful that I am able to print postage from the computer, and the postal carrier will just pick them up at the regular mail delivery time. My kids really helped me to get things packed up and out to the mail box. Thanks Diva and LegoFan! I did sell six other items, but they won’t go out until Monday, so I will wait and include them in next week’s totals I am hoping to get cleared to do a little more walking so I can get more items listed in the next week or two.

Totals:

  • Donated: 6 Items
  • Thrown Away: 51 Items
  • Sold: 11 Items

Weeks 8-9: 1725 – 68 = 1657

Not too shabby for someone who has been cut open and laid up for a week!

With 43 weeks left in the year, I now must average 39 items per week. But I’m not sure how well I’m going to do this week while I’m still living on the couch – we’ll see!
