In one of those, wow life sure has changed for me moments. Coupled with, oh, I’m not the biggest loser in the room moments.
It’s Saturday night at 7:30pm. Almost bed time. The kids are enjoying watching “Spice World” for the second time. Secretly I am glad as I hope they will inherit my love for all things British and ‘90’s.
I’d been feeling blah today with the overcast weather, but fortunately I had the presence of mind to write a to do list this morning. Top of the list, finish selling off my vintage furniture. I collected Mid Century, Heywood Wakefield furniture for years. But, now I want to rid myself of most of it. I don’t have the room and moving 5 times in 6 years makes me be less attached to objects.
Now, in my pre married days I would think, Will I seem like a big loser posting something on Craigslist on a Saturday night? But, in my present life I think, A lot of people are home on a Saturday night perhaps searching Craigslist for my vintage dresser and vanity and this is the perfect time.
Now there is a tad bit of vulnerability when you post. Besides the obvious, I hope a would be buyer doesn’t come and murder me. But, also, will people think who wants your crap? I certainly judge some listings. $700 for that wicker chair? I don’t think so.
So, I post, I put pictures, and I don’t ask for much.
I’m cleaning up the kitchen when I hear a “ping”. Oh, could I already have an interested buyer? Will be my garage be roomy?
Yes, it is from craigslist, but it’s not the kind I usually get “can I come by tomorrow.” Or “what are the measurements?” No, it says
Seriously. Here is the email from “Barbara”
I’ve just been told I’m boring on Craigslist on a Saturday night. I was briefly offended, till I realized, wait, someone is home on a Saturday night Critiquing Craigslist postings!
Now, I need to change my son’s poopy diaper. Still a better Saturday night than Babs is having.
