Scarves Stolen

Had a pretty good weekend, Friday yielded a new outfit from Ross that you will get to see tomorrow. I LOVE it!! Saturday walked 4 miles and made pot roast for this weeks eating. We have not had that dish in over 5 years so it was a nice change. The weather on Sunday was unbelievably gorgeous. I found the perfect batch of scarves on E-Bay. Now keep in my mind that I am not an E-Bay person but thought what the heck. So, I found them and proudly bid on them Friday night but the bidding lasted all weekend, watched them all day Saturday and no other bids. Got up Sunday, checked before I went to church and YEP I'm still the only bidder, get home from church and check again - still the only bidder. All day Sunday I'm on the only bidder and by this time I have put each scarf with a different outfit and I can almost feel them in my hair. I had dinner plans with my daughter and son-in-law and there was 2 hours left on the bidding. I go out to dinner feeling pretty confident and digging this E-Bay thing. Get back from dinner 2 hours and 5 minutes later, ask my daughter if she wants to see my new scarves and what do I see? Someone came in at the last minute and outbid me by 50 lousy cents. WHAT?! I am crushed! Those were EXACTLY what I was looking for GRRRRR So at this moment I think E-Bay sucks. Do you guys have any tips for me as there are some really cool Mod 60's outfits but I do not like the idea of babysitting an item to have someone swoop in at the last minute. GRRRRRR But, I do have this really cool new outfit :) Have a great Monday!!
