Our busy month is almost over. I'm actually excited to have a clean house and nothing to do for a while.
We had a really fun time in Minnesota. Lily stayed pretty happy, although she ended up having double ear infections and not sleeping much the entire time. She tore Mamma and Papa's house apart and stayed constantly entertained by her cousins. She has still not stopped talking about "no-no, yi-ya, i - "boo", and gees' and calls for 'Jee-Jee' any time I tell her 'no'!
Laura and I had quite an experience at our first and last craft show, despite the fact that it was a dismal failure.
We knew we weren't craft show people the moment we walked in and saw a lady setting out 'bead creatures' on her table. We had A LOT of time to sit and talk. We stayed entertained by the special kid who would come and give us updates about the sale of his family's wooden ducks. They were doing quite well with the given audience. I also managed to memorize the sales pitch of the guy at the granite candle booth next to us. It went a little something like this, " Ever seen a rock on fire? It's a candle, burns forever, can I show you how it works?" and then they were stuck for the next 10-15 minutes. When he wasn't talking to potential customers... he was sitting and swinging his coiled santa hat around on his head. Laura and I attempted to take his picture without him knowing.
Several hours before the bitter end... the delirious 'Olson twins '
packed up our stuff and left... much to the dismay of the show coordinator, who came over to tell us not to. I informed her of our decision and were expletives required... I would have used them at that point. I was tired, cranky, and missed my bug-bug.
In conclusion... the booth fee was well worth the reunion and good laughs we both had.
By the way... I will never be leaving again because of the stain control I had to do when I got home. GEEEZ... several ruined outfits sat wet and molding on the dryer.
