Co-worker tripped over her dog and threw her back out. Supervisor canít cover it because he is at home with Covid.

Oops, sorry about that. Yes, i meant I received the email for registering to enter for a chance to win a chance to buy the merchandise. I still can't believe Disney has made this a "thing" and we have all succumbed to it LOL
I saw a story by Disney Food Blog about a new Harvey bag. It was super cute. A pumpkin and I looked online and it was sold out already. I didnít see any in the parks in September. Iíve always admired these bags. I didnít check ebay but Iím sure they are there.

Random thought, somewhere in this process, I passed 10,000 posts!
I agree that there was probably more $$$ to be had in marking up/selling the actual merchandise.

Hope that you are having a nice, non-working evening!

edit: OOOH! I see that I am now a "One Bedroom". Congrats on the 10,000+ posts!

I just keep thinking that if these eBay pirates would channel that energy into real jobs...

I worked in the barn all afternoon cleaning rabbit cages. Now Iím admiring the new fabric I bought on the clearance table at Wal-mart last night and planning my next project. I really need to be hemming a quilt, but Iím feeling lazy.

Congratulations on the 1 bedroom! Youíll be a 2 bedroom before you know it.

The Harveyís special edition bags are gone in under 10 minutes of release every single time. Itís crazy, and terrible but I donít see how it can be stopped. Merch pass is one way though as we see not full proof.
