mogrel dogs and cow update

February 12th, 2007 at 03:56 pm

New calf born this morning. What a wild morning. Started at 5:3. All the phones in the house started ringing nonstop. DH sleep thru it all. His cell, my cell and the house phone. He was wanted in on overtime. (he just got home from working 12 hours ot and needs sleep) 2 schools wanting me to sub--but, I wanted to spend time with DH since he has worked 4 12 hr shifts only off 2, then back on for another 4. His days off lately have been on days when I taught, so we missed each other.

Then in the middle of phone grand station...the mongrel cow chasing dog from down the road shows up, dragging all 5 of her ugly pups along and decides to give them calf chasing lessons. Had my beagle howling, my lab barking, horses running nuts, cows mooing and again, DH sleeps thru it all.

I finally get her and her ugly off-spring run off the place and one of the cows is still carrying on. It was Amelelia, and she is sort of senstive and she is also due to calf next month. So, I go to calm her down and she drops a calf at me feet. A little grey one with big brown eyes. Literly dropped it. Her first one, so she had an easy deliverly. I think that mongrel mutt scared it out of her--she had 6 weeks left to go. If the calf doesn't make it the mongrel won't either....

And, DH is still sleeping.... (But, he is tired-one extra ot day, then ot on top of his normal 12 hours, so he needs to do some catching up)

Mongrel dog and her babies also knocked over the trash can. I thought it had all burned, but it handnt, so now I have to go pick it up before the snow starts. Supposed to have 6 inches by tomorrow noon.

When momma cow calms down, I will have to go and sex the cow. If its a boy, I can't get attached. (hamburger and steak), but if its a girl, she will get a name.

That makes 3 calves since Jan 8, and one more still on the way.

Books not selling

February 2nd, 2007 at 03:54 pm

So far, not a single book I have put on has sold. But, since it is free, I will keep listing them.

My routine is, first check it on cash4books. If they buy it great, I'll sell it to them. If they don't, then it goes onto I have about 7 more boxes of books, then some grocery bags full.

Does anyone know of a way to rid ones basments of paperback books and make some $$ doing it? I have put them on craigslist and on the local radio swap. no luck. There are no bookstores or anything around here that buys them either.

I am to sub today, for 1/2 day, and I sub 4 days next week as well.

$20 Challenge

OK. After a year of reading these. I'm in.
We start with $20, correct? I have $47 left over from Christmas money, so I will throw $20 of that in to start. My goal is declutter, and make $$$ doing it.

Sold some books (twice now) on cash4books. (If anyone wants a link, PM me and I'll send it to you). That will be $13,80 to add, but I won't add it till its in my paypal account. I am sending the box of books in tomorrow. They even pay the shipping.

So total $20.00

Easy Money! I get paid to declutter!

I found a link on Craigslist regarding a site that bought books. I grabbed about 6 books I don't use out of a still unpacked book in the basement, and out of the 6, they will buy 3 for a total of $6.16 and they are paying the shipping. I printed off the postage paid label, and will mail them off on Monday. They will pay me by paypal. I have about 20 boxes of books, and will go thru them the next few days. The books they are buying are cook book, toddler game book and a girl scout leader book. DH has boxes of books, I have boxes, and many are duplicates. So, its like getting paid to clean out the basement and the bookshelves.
What you do is enter the books ISBN #, and they tell you if they will buy it and the price.
If you want to check it out, go to I am going to try and locate some of my textbooks from school and see what they are going for. My last class was about 2 years ago, but the toddler book was one of them. I should have another box of them down there somewhere.
