It’s funny, the more I blog, the more spam I get. Oh wait, that’s not really so shocking, is it?
I have been praying for the month of February to be over since January. I haven’t had one minute to breathe and it won’t end until this Sunday and my father’s memorial service. Which I don’t want to say I’m dreading, because that would sound unkind. But I have to go to work on Monday, and just going to visit my mother last weekend and help her with her garage sale caused me to have a weeping fit on Saturday night that led to a 14 hour migraine on Sunday.
Now you know.
I have decided to abstain from Facebook for Lent, and I’ve done good the last few days. I am still tweeting and blogging, though, maybe more than usual. That’s kind of why I’m doing this? I feel like everyone is SHOUTING at me or BRAGGING about themselves on Facebook, and I needed a BREAK. Yes, that shout was intentional!
If you follow me on FB, you may have already seen these photos, but I wanted to do a little catch up post. Since I haven’t caught up since December.
First, you know we did the Atomic Bazaar in Sarasota this past December. It wasn’t all I had hoped, but I made enough money to justify the trip, and we made some nice trades. Also, this guy.
A few weeks ago, I did my third annual Retro Indie Market in Boynton Beach. I am sad to say after two years of making excellent money there, I made almost bupkus this time. No, seriously, I had ONE SALE. But I saw some friends, others came to visit me, and I had a killer omelette with my friend Becky at Howley’s after the show. So, I was not unhappy. Also, this little cutie — and I DID take this photo.
I am looking forward to next weekend. I can relax. I can watch the Oscars. I can live tweet the Oscars. I can try and find a bookshelf for this place, because my books have been in boxes on the dining room floor for two months now.
I need to breathe. I need to knit. I need to relax. I need a vacation. I will tell you a secret….we have come into a little money, and are talking about Disney World over Memorial Day Weekend.
I’m going to get through this weekend. I will go to Target and check out the Prabal Gurung tomorrow. And I’ll listen to more of my “happy place” music.
