Chicken Pock, No Sugar, and Ebay Issues

This will have to be short......I promise. Alex has the chicken pocks which means Katie will have them shortly. Fun fun. I had all my patterns pulled from ebay for sending them in pdf files to emails. Now I have to redo all the listings and send printed copies. Craptastic! I listed 4 of my patterns on the free pattern page that I won't be offering for sale anymore.........need to submit them to Knitting Pattern Central. I got 166 yards of the 600 I need spun for the KAL (Knit Along) I'm participating in on Ravelry and I have 6 million pictures I need to take to update this site, the blog, and my Ravelry profile. Okay, maybe not 6 million but lots and I don't feel like doing any of it. I've got to much to do and not enough of me to go around. To top it all off I missed Word Girl on PBS today working on the damned Ebay stuff. Yes, I watch Word Girl.....everyday.....even when the kids aren't home. I love that show, Granny May is my absolute favorite villian of all time and the adults in the show are totally clueless. It's hysterical! We have NOTHING sweet to eat in this house unless I want to go suck down straight sugar, which I've considered. I think I'll make my favorite oatmeal and raisin cookies instead. I know I'm going to shrivel up and die if I don't get something sweet the very least I will become really bitchy. Okay, that's long enough. Off to make cookies and spin some more roving!

When did Ebay institute a no-pdf policy? that sounds strange since they're an online venue!

I'd share some of my sweets with you but we're out too! Hope you can make the cookies - that's what I usually do when the urges to strangle start lol :)

I did make cookies, but one batch wasn't enough to keep me from wanting to strangle somebody after the ebay junk! Apparently, if you are sending something electronically and not shipping an actual item you have to list it in the main category Everything else and some obscure subcategory for electronic whatsits. No one would find a pattern there. My husband thinks they do this to keep people from selling porn and sending it in a pdf. Who knows....I sure don't!
