Router & Sale & Bouncing... Oh MY!

First of all, Star and I confirmed with our cable guy this morning (it was a guy who answered the phone ergo...) that the router was on the UPS truck.  Then we waited.  Normally the truck hits here mid-morning.  Nooooo truck.  But that was okay.  Star and I just kept going outside with a book every hour and a half and sitting for a bit watching the pot to see if it would boil.  ::sigh::  Nooooo truck.  My kids came home.  My daughter scared Mister Kitten and my son found him hiding under my bed.  Well, that's not entirely true since I have a waterbed.  He was just under the quilt hanging over the side... but still.  So I suggested that Corwyn tempt all of the cats to his room with TREATS! while my daughter did her homework.  Still noooooooo truck.

Finally my daughter had finished all but one project and went to her room to take a nap (hey!  it's tiring being a Junior!).  By this time it was 17:30 (that's 5:30 to Thomas who just tried to help again).  Riiiiiiiiiing.  YES!  The doorbell!!  Roooouuuuuuuttttttttteeeeeerrrrrrrr!!  Oh, and a package for Jennifer... who wouldn't wake up to open it.  But that was okay, Star and I went ahead and installed the router.  Whoot!!  And while we were doing that we noticed something... I actually sold something this month!  Hey!  $2.40!!  Okay, it's not much but it's something.  I needed that.  Not the $2.40 because I won't actually see it, it'll go towards the price of the site (about $6 a month) but just having made a sale.  I'd like to get to the point where I could do things like oh, say, get greenies for da boys, extras for the kids (yearbooks are up to $70!  eeep!), and such.

This is what they got, and one was sold last month too!
The women's dark t-shirt in violet!

Da boys have decided that tonight is Bouncy Night!!  First Star, after he discovered that I still wouldn't let him walk all over the laptop keyboard (and that there was no place to sit on top of it either), took off bouncing on top of any cat within pouncing distance.  Then Mister Kitten had to get in on the game because, well, anything Star can do Mister Kitten thinks he can do better... and then gets proven wrong, but that's another story!  But the shocking incident of the evening was when Thomas and Zaphoid joined in!!  Zaphy bounced right off the bed but Thomas did manage to maintain his dignity and restrained himself in time to plop back down and return to sleeping.
