I'm not sure if I will be able to reveal the new and improved Trade Mobile this weekend. I still have a little more work to do and I cannot rush myself on this most delicate process.
In the process of working on TTM tonight I forgot that big spot lights tend to attract bugs, well...I also left the garage door open with the light on and you can only guess what happened. Lets just say I have about a million moths in my garage at the moment.
My dilemma here is that I want these critters out of my garage and or dead! If I leave the garage door open over night with another light outside to distract them out, I risk the chance of someone stealing all my stuff.
If I do nothing, they will try and take over the world, kicking it off in my garage! What do I do Dr. Laura? I wonder if she is on this late? Maybe she would have a sad sob song for me. Anyway, moving on.
I am currently working on creating a Facebook page for Trade Me Out of Debt! Pretty soon I'm going to need all you readers out there to click that little like button.
Last but not least, Amy and I are starting the Financial Peace University thing-a-majigger. Don't worry, there will still be debt left at the end of my project to be traded away for our last item! Unless someone wants to hook a brother up and we can end this whole project now :)
For real though, at the beginning of the project, I had said that if our last item is potentially worth in excess of our debt then we would donate the difference. What this boils down to is, the more debt we can pay off now, the greater the opportunity for us to get to donate the difference if we are blessed with the opportunity of this project working out.
Back to the whole FPU deal, we will do our best to give you updates as to how we are doing with this home edition class we are taking and we'll do our best to pass along any cool stuff we learn, so maybe one day you too can become debt free. Okay, I am going to bed for real.
I will be introducing to you the new and improved Trade Mobile.
You won't be able to turn your eyes away from it. The Trade Mobile will draw you in, and leave you asking "Why?". That's okay, I ask myself the same question all the time. "Why did I trade my nice Saturn for a freaking insanely colored van?"
I know why, because it gets the attention the project needs and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Amy will NEVER, EVER, EVER let me pull a move like this again. I pretty much made the decision to get the van without consulting her.
When she said no, I still prevailed :) At least all the old ladies and little kids in the neighborhood love the van.
To the old ladies; I bring back many memories of the 70's, and to the little kids, I am the Ice Cream Man. This whole process of vamping up the van has been fun and I will never forget it.
We had entries from all over the world: All the way from Oklahoma, to Alabama, to Jordan (near Israel) I am telling you all, this is a fair and square contest! Everyone has equal chances of winning because we have our little AC as our name picker.
I have to mention my first offer for the vacation: I was offered (these are all one offer) 150 baby clothes,a kitchen table, a TV, a massage table, and last but not least a "never been used manual breast pump." This offer was from the heart and this person really could use the Branson vacation, but I just don't think I could use a manuel breast pump, much less try and trade it up. I passed up the offer to say the least.
Yeah, we're doing that this time around. All you have to do is find the ceramic chicken in any of the pictures we have taken from this past trade and then contact me and let me know what picture you found him in and where exactly you found him. Then you will be entered into the drawing to win a $25 gift card to Amazon, iTunes, or Chic-fil-A.
You will always have a week from when I post the trade to email me, so in the case of this trade you have until this Sunday afternoon at 3PM. Please include your contact information in your email. It makes it that much easier to get ahold of you. I sure would hate to pass someone up.
