This is the 2nd Quarter thread for 2021 – in theory. It’s actually the 2nd Third, because I forgot to end the last thread in March! Of course 2021 is running skewed!
Post your Challenge numbers here for the week starting Monday May 3, and ending Sunday May 9, 2021. Numbers must be posted on Monday 10, and then each week going forward. You do not need permission to join, just post your numbers and I’ll add you in.
For information and rules on the Challenge, go here.

I’m so sorry you lost all that glorious writing! It’s always such a treat to read your posts each week. Hopefully the rest of the week goes better for you!

I’m posting early; I have to leave soon to check into the hotel by the hospital where my husband is having surgery. Please send us positive vibes on Monday morning!
38 new listings for me.
Wishing everyone a great week!

Logging in early so I can send you, your family and especially your husband good wishes, VT. You’ll be in my thoughts. Hope everything goes well.
45 listings for me this week and 5 were for the May challenge.
Hope everyone has a good week ahead.

VT, hope everything goes well for your husband and you.
Goose egg for me again last week. Hopefully this should be my last busy week at work for a while and I can get some things listed. I need to unstuff my house.

15 for me – which makes the week my least productive this year. I think I’m already in vacation mode even though my vacation is a few weeks away.
1 met the May calendar – an Easter plate.
Well wishes to your husband, VT for a fast recovery.

I had a decent week at 23. I had fewer distractions, and next week should be good as well.
Four met the May challenge. When I was in Pittsburgh last weekend, I picked up some items from the one person I do commissions for, and several were Jewish holiday items.
VT – Prayers to your husband for a successful surgery and a quick recovery.

Best wishes to your husband, VT! And for you to get through this with your sanity intact. I know how rough it is for the family members as well!
JR and I are riding the same train, and I think UtahBill is on it with us. Zeroes all the way, like big round train wheels! LOL

Oops! Sorry! I forgot. Gulp!
Spreadsheet updated, VL wins the week! Go you!
UtahBill hasn’t posted for several weeks so he has been retired. UtahBill, if you come back, I can reinstate you easily.
Looking at the numbers, I have been posting an average of 9 a week, with an original goal of 15. I’ve already adjusted my goal to 12, but I may change it down to 10. The ideal of the goal is to have a challenge, but it gets demotivating to see how far behind the numbers are falling – at least, to me. With 18 weeks of the year down already and an average of 9 listings per week, even 10 will be a challenge for me. I can always adjust up again later in the year if I start getting productive! In that light: JR, you have been posting an average of 5 a week, with a goal of 15; and Sharyn, you have been posting an average of 12 a week, with a goal of 20; do either of you want to make an adjustment? Just let me know.
