Many years ago I was addicted to Ebay. The problem is that I am way too competitive. Even though I set my max bid I couldn't stand to lose. After I had acquired many things this way, I quit. I really haven't been back until now. I blame Jeff. Isn't that the point of significant others? But really he drew me back in. Last week we won two very moderately priced pairs of little ice skates for Keegan and Isabelle. Keegan's were only $1. And I thought I was safe. But last night we browsed around and I saw all of the fabulous shoes that are new and cheap! I haven't actually bid but we are following the auctions and a few other items too. Online shopping is so right up my alley because I never have time to go out in the world. I like to shop uninterrupted. Get into a zone if you will.
