Clothing, clothing, baby and mama’s

I am so tired of late, of course, being in the first trimester of a new pregnancy. I’m finding it hard to do so many things, motivation to cook is fairly nil. I’m not having “morning sickness” but just feel anti-to-making-food. πŸ™ Well, that’s alway’s worse when the night before is a bad one, or, as in the case of yesterday, I didn’t get a nap and when on a ride with Frank on a couple of appoindments he had … the whole family went, of course. We stopped in a little store we’d seen before, that has nice clothing for babies, and up to size 6x in girls and 7 in boys, plus nice wooden toys and such kinds of stuff. Then we decided to go to the mall and see what kind of maternity clothing was there. Ah, the bad day afterwords is alright, for I know how painful the journey was and the worstmentless of it, or doing it again.

Yes, eBay is the place for shopping for maternity clothing!

I have been going through my stuff, and having a hard time with most of it, memories, but I will not wear most of it again. I only wear dresses now, and hate wearing “shorts” or “pants”. (plus, my stance on modesty keeps me happily in dresses!) I do wear tights or leggings under dresses, that’s just not the same as “pants” or “shorts”. So then, I have a nice black jumper from 1995/96 Motherhood Maternity, it needs dry cleaned. Then I need to find my blouse I usually wear with it, but probably need a new one. Anyhow, that was one of my farorite things to wear in the past pregnancies, and I find now, looking at it, that it’s rather short πŸ˜‰ My tastes have changed remarkably. Anyhow, it’ll work alright, as it is below the knees.

Another favorite is a dark blue dress with white polkadots. It’s a long dress, nice coller,swingy skirt, and it’ needs dry cleaned too. It was folded on a shelf, and I took it down and was looking at it, and found a funny spot of white on it and there next to it was a worm (the white must be a webby thing that it hached out of). Uh Oh. It was probably about to start eating clothing. Yikes! Good thing I was prompted internally to look at doing something with my maternity clothing.

So that leaves me with shirts and weird stuff.

I have three things coming to me that will be great to wear out and to church. eBay, another “of course”. Very good deals, all of them.

I’m watching another auction right now, and it has 4 dresses in it, and oh I’m hoping to get it. They’ll be the things I wear at home or some of them also out.

I’ll be seeing about putting some of my stuff I don’t want up on auction soon. Plus I have a load a particular brand of Chr. Romance books that I’ll sell in one or two huge lots.

What I make in those things is funding for other eBay purchases.

All things listing on eBay are more difficult for me now that we don’t have a digital camera again (the one is out for repair, hopefully warranty in full effect and coverage!) So that’s why I’ve not been listing things since the first few I did, as the camera has been unreliable when it was here, and now is gone. I may gather a great amount and take the fewest pictures I can muster with my film camera … a thing I don’t want to do.

I find it interesting that I was starting to sell baby clothing, and considering how much of it to sell … when the camera was then oblesy not working right, and then one buyer left a nasty feedback without contacting me … and my heart wasn’t in it anymore … then just some weeks later, I find that selling my good baby clothing isn’t the best thing to be doing πŸ˜‰

I’d been wondering for a couple of years if I should give away or sell my baby things … and was reticent to do anything about it at all until December finally. Hmmm.

This is mostly due to our belief of leaving our family size to God’s planning. We don’t “try” to have more children, nor “try not to” have more children. Considering that, we at this point have 3 children, and one on the way, in over 12 years of marriage. It’s wonderful that God is blessing us with another child, which I’m so thrilled with, as I love babies and “at least four” is what I’d considered all my life long as “being right for me”.

So all this coming together, baby clothing, feeling able to give it up finally, then finding I will need it afterall if all goes well. It’s just very interesting to consider.

Another thing, I had the crib set up as a daybed in our bedroom last year. We moved our bedroom furniture around over New Years, and the daybed has been apart, and I was going to set it up in the dining area. I hadn’t gotten to it yet. With the resent advent of our news, I now can save that set-up time and just put it up elsewhere as a full fledged crib instead, later. πŸ™‚

Please understand any mis-spelling I’ve done in this post particularly. Sometimes I just don’t spell well, my fingers fly and my mind speaks the word, but my fingers spell it wrong. Pre-old-age-disease? Lack-of-mineral-or-vitamem? Not-enough-good-literature-reading-these-last-few-years? Ah, my new excuse — Pregnancy-brain? πŸ˜†

I’m too tired right now to attempt spell checking, when my spelling don’t work so well with any spell-check I’ve got on my computer πŸ˜‰

I’m in need of posting. I’ve done very little the last week. So here are my thoughts! It feels good to get them down on a page of something, whether paper or internet. I love blogging. πŸ™‚

  1. Update, I did win that auction for the dresses I was hoping to get. Now I’ll have some decent things to wear around the house when bigger, as well as wear them on some outings … I don’t go sleeveless, so a sweater or something will do nicely. (as long as I find a sweater or something, and as long as my dresses come via USPS as stated πŸ˜‰ )
