I won, I won, I won....

I have been searching forever for Stamping Up French Script background stamp. I usually find them after the sale is over. I finally found three again...all listed on Ebay. I start bidding and some person keeps upping the bids and I lost out on the first one.

I was not about to lose out on the second one...so, I waited and I waited and I watched the time count down. I figured....she/he always ups me by $.50 so....I would go one further and go $1.00. I watch the time tick down....I entered my amount in the bid box....I kept my mouse on the button....when the clock said only 5 seconds left...I hit the button....and held my breath.

Nothing happened! I hit the refresh button and, and, and I won...I beat them out. I have my stamp. Now I have to wait for it to come in the mail. Tap, tap, rattity-tap (those are my fingers tapping). I have no patience...I want it now. I have a stamp to go with it....I have a card idea and I really, really want to make this card!

On the down side...our house is on a cement slap (no basement) and it has been raining so hard lately. Monday, I heard gurgling like water running and I followed the sound....got down on my hands and knees....knelt by the register and there is water in there!!! Our floor vents are full of water. Hubby has been pumping them dry with his shop vac but it is not keeping up to the water flow. I now need to find a general contractor to tell me what my next step should be. I want to rent again!!!

It is supposed to be hot and sunny for the rest of the week into the weekend....so, I hope we dry out and we can figure out what is going on.

I hope the sun shines where you are.
