This is me, all day. LOL
This is what I get for putting till tomorrow what I should have done that day. I am now in overtime mode getting everything ready for my next show on the 13th. The show is in Ponchatoula Louisiana and it is a really nice show. It is hard on vendors, but it is a good show non the less. It is only hard because it is a one day show so you show up and set up then sale then breakdown and go home. It would be fine, but I live 2.5 hours away from there so it makes for a very long day. This year I was told we could actually set up the day before the show. I am not sure if we will do this or not, but I hope we will. It will make it so much nicer to sleep between setup and breakdown.

The house is all abuzz with talk of shows and senior year of high school and moving and promotions. This is Ray's last week at his present job. Today is his last time to fly offshore as a "grunt" as I teasingly call him. He has for years had to haul really heavy tool bags up and down stairs on the offshore platforms, but today should be the last time. He said he was going to try and visit all of them today to say goodbye to all the men.

My youngest had his senior pictures made last week. I was a bit upset to find this out as he didn't tell me and we didn't go get his hair cut. He is pretty shaggy, but it is what it is. Like he told me "mom it is a snapshot of this time of my life". Sometimes he can be so smart. I won't stress as I plan on getting him a new suit and getting his picture made soon anyway. We also are trying to decide if he will get a senior ring. he doesn't really want one. he said he would just leave it in the box and then have to worry about losing it. I am of the mind to just take the money we would have spent on the ring and invest it in a new computer he really needs. His present computer is a bone yard computer. It was one that he and his brother salvaged parts from other computers and built.

I have 4 shows on the calendar between now and March so I will be busy for a while. Then I will concentrate on packing and moving. I know there are things I will not want the movers to pack as I have had that heartbreak before. So I will be slowly making my list of stuff I will pack and move myself.

Oh, I gotta go, I hear the washer stopped and need to get back to work.

Diane said...
