Withdrawals

I'm having withdrawal symptoms. The 2008 WVIZ Auction is over.

Weakness. Sleeplessness. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Exhaustion. Yearning. Aching. Depression. Sad. Tired. Denial.

Friday our power went out. Near panic. But M fired up the DirecTv and everything was ok – until the station had technical difficulties for over an hour. M thought I was starting to cry. I think it bothered me more than the station that lonely hour for me. And there were deals to be had at that time, too. Opportunistic online bidders won with low $ over that hour.

We visited WVIZ Saturday morning to pick up our one prize: a steal of the night – Ohio Bag. As soon as I was at the station, I wanted to be inside helping. It is a sickness, I know. And the rest of the afternoon, I decided to be a nice wife and go out with M and stay away from the TV.

Sunday, the weather was icky M felt that way. This allowed private auction showing for most of the day. The auction ran over with time 1:42 hours. So I stayed up until 2:42 a.m. last night – until the very end. It is one of my weird quirks that I like to see the final amount raised, hear "Thank you for being a friend" and watch the zebra mascot wave good bye until next year.

WVIZ raised $541,800, and I can take credit for $95 of it. I'm all ready looking forward to next year.
