I sold a pair of my daughter's shoes on eBay. After shipping and PayPal fees, I made $9.78 to put toward the challenge and the scooter fund. So:
Challenge Total: $11,070.88
Vespa Fund: $21.73
My dog came home from the vet today. She's incredibly perky considering she had major surgery yesterday. The vet showed me the stones they took out of her and it's amazing she didn't have symptoms earlier. All the stones combined were the size of my fist, which is the exact size of her little bladder.
She'll be on antibiotics for the next 2 weeks and is now on a special doggie diet, but otherwise seems just fine.
I transferred the money to cover the surgery this morning. It was money well spent as far as I'm concerned.
I'm still waiting for the gym manager to call me back to discuss why they haven't been debiting my checking account for my monthly membership fees. I called him again today and he was in, but his computer wasn't on to access my records so he was going to call me right back. That was three hours ago....
You would think that if someone is willingly calling you to give you money, then you'd call them back as soon as possible.
I'm think I'm about done with "doing the right thing" here.
I am now taking my daughter out to the garage to paint 18 birdhouses that we got for $20 from Oriental Trading Company. My plan is to let the little Picasso go at it using some old paint and brushes I have from various past projects. Then she's going to give each of her uncles and aunts a birdhouse for Christmas.
