The ipod touch 1st gen came back.
It didn't play the games that the 9 year old wanted (though I told her that the games were limited before she came to get it in the first place) I suppose I could have been a jerk and said "tough luck, you should have done your research before you bought it." But I didn't. I gave her the money back and accepted the iPod back into my life. Then I loaded it back up with songs and some goofy old games and played with it for a while. There is nothing wrong with it other than it's old and apple doesn't support it anymore. As long as I have it, I can run it.
But the 2 chairs are sold now. The lady seemed happy. And I am happy to have the space and to have the cash too.
Next on the chopping block:
A smallish, ugly, in-the-window, air conditioner. It was a welcome relief from the scorching heat of the other house (with it's full sun exposure and big windows), but in this house it's completely not neccessary. It works and I COULD just keep it in the crawlspace "just in case" since it isn't costing me anything if I don't plug it in.
But thats just silly.
It still works and surely someone is out there desperately wishing they had an air conditioner that doesn't cost a fortune.
**** in less than 24 hours someone bought it without even haggling - I even found the manual for it! ****
More things that are leaving:
Summer clothes that aren't working for me anymore... I am saving them for the next time I see my slender friend. She may have them or take them to her next clothes swap or sell them as she wishes.
AND some more books (no photo sorry)
