Going Going GONE…

First, it was the tricycle bike.

We didn’t really use this bike for so long, separation made easy. One lady came in with her 2 years old son one afternoon; I waved her goodbye with $15 extra on my pocket.

Second, it was my son bed.
Knowing that he happily moved to his bunk-bed, no tears for farewell party for this bed its new home. It’s one of our friends who bought it for her daughter.

Third, it was my daughter cot.

For some reason – that only she knew exactly what the reason are- she kept saying no every time we tried to put her to sleep on her cot. Tantrum was unbearable. She won, she moved to our bed, been slept with us for the last 4 weeks, and happily forget about the cot. Back pain and neck pain is more like daily habit for me since our bed far from ideal to be occupied by 3 people, even the third is a 16months old –with endless spinning energy while closed her eyes; enough to kick me out from my own bed.

We dismantle the cot; put the ad on the internet, and successfully selling it to a young couple driving BMW expecting their first child in 4 weeks. Again, no tears. Only joy, imagining the cot will be a home for a new baby, a new life. And joy for added extra $65 to our pocket. I got plan already how to spend the money…hmmmm…..

Fourth, it was our new digital top box.

Oh, let me say it again. It was my husband new digital top box, which he bought months ago but not compatible with our TV. Since I put the ad on the internet, I’ve been overwhelmed with e-mail offering to buy. There was a very determinant guy, kept sending me e-mail and even text-message just about midnight, begging me for this digital top box. It’s finally got me to agree him for $50, but the aftermath not as smooth as I expected. He drove kilometers to get to my place with his mate car, got this top box, and somehow he was shocked –that what he said to me on e-mail- when he opened the box, found hundreds scratches on it’s small glass-screeny thing. He got me panic. After couple of exchanged e-mails and text-message, examined the photo he had send me, I came to conclusion: it’s not scratches, it’s a kind of very thin plastic film-sort of thing that use to coated the screen when you bought electrical item. Explained to him, haven’t heard from him since. I suppose everything all right and settle down. Fingers cross.

Fifth, our less-than-one-year desk fan.
Bit sad this time. The fan been sitting pretty on my bedroom, and I am not really keen to sell it for $40. But keeping this fan will be a whole complete different story –and different problem too. So, let it go…

Yesterday, another buyer came in to pick up my son old stroller. It’s our sixth sale, this guy was happy to pay $65 -$10 less from my first offer, and we don’t want to keep it anyway. $65 sounds good. Adios Volo. Still got one more stroller have to sell, my ad been up for 3 weeks but nothing came back to me so far. Have to be patient for this time.

Tomorrow will be another day, another buyer, and another item has to be selling. It will be my bedside drawer, it’s been on my side for the last 4.5 years, and I am surely not happy to let it go. People say don’t love something too much, will give only trouble that you can’t mend. I don’t feel like broken heart. Only something will missing, and not so ready for that.

Let see tomorrow.
