It's Official...I'm addicted!

Yup, there's no doubt about it!  I'm officially addicted to online auctioning.  And nope, it's not Ebay.  It's MomPack Auctions as I mentioned earlier.  You can't beat it!  It's FR*EE (yes, that is one of my favorite words!)  I spent majority of my day setting up auctions.  I tend to be a "neat freak" and a perfectionist when it comes to those types of things.  No, I'm not saying in anyway that I'm perfection (cause I'm the farthest thing from that!) But, I love tweaking things and making things look just perfect (for me anyway). 
I even tried something thats a little new for my style.  Guess you could call it a bit of a "test" for me.  When it comes to writing ads and promotions I usually tend to be more on the personal side.  Hmmm...I don't even know exactly how to explain it.  But usually I don't make the whole long sales page of You get this and You get this.  Buy Now.  Hurry.  If you do this now you'll get this as an added bonus.  But obviously this type of advertising must work or else you would see so many of them.  Soooo, I decided to give it a try.  I set up two auctions today in that manner.  One was for an Ebook Business Pak and the other for a Webmasters Software Pak.  Doing those were kind of fun and like I said just a bit different from what I'm used to doing.  I'm interested in seeing the results.
My initial goals for the day was to promote the Back To School Celebration a little more today.  But easily got side-tracked with the auctions.  Hopefully I'll be able to jump into that more tomorrow.  Heck the least I can do it get it on my website.  I guess I was just kind of waiting for the banner to be done first. But I can't wait too much longer...Need to make it a priority.
Either I (actually we!, LOL) need to quit coming up with so many ideas OR I need to start working a little more on each project everyday.  I'm still not used to not having as much time to work during the day.  I'm still used to working during the day and right about now I'd be helping my daughter with her homework.  Luckily I've been able to work more in the evenings.  When the kids were in school I only worked during the day and the evenings were for the kids.  Guess things have been just a bit flip-flopped but...that's not good for hubby.  Think I better start setting that alarm clock a little bit earlier.
