My weekend was a nightmare. The next five and a half weeks until Mom's memorial service don't look to be much better, but I'm dealing with it. I'm not off the rails, I'm not binging, I didn't drop out of school, and I'm functioning. It... Read more

Skipping today's market for high wind warnings. Last week I lost 2 racks to the wind. Yesterday, the scrubbie bins blew over and stuff wouldn't stay on tables. (Obnoxious woman next to me said "I heard the crash" in this superior tone of voice ... Read more

My Friday the 13th
Friday, October 13, 2017      6 comments

Was spent planning mom's memorial and burial of her ashes. Not a great day. Hubs is being amazing, as usual, but it's all on me to plan and arrange. According to him, he's "just in it to provide moral support and pay the bill. Oh, and play ... Read more
Holy cr*p, I'm getting it?!

I blogged about butting head with my instructor about my integrity and refusing to resubmit my work after correcting it with the class. Well, the assignment in question has been graded and I got...Wait for it...95%!!! Not exactly sure how I... Read more

And son made time to stop by and not only wrangle it into the house (thanks for putting it on the porch where I couldn't open the door, UPS ... Read more
Hubs is helping :-)
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      5 comments

No, he's not home. He's not doing stuff at the house. He's playing tag with hurricanes all this past week! But he IS helping with things by making sure I can get what I need for the house. He's having the new mini-washer delivered (it was s... Read more
Butting heads and other fun stuff for the day
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      3 comments

I'm having a bit of an issue with an instructor. It's an odd one. The issue, not the instructor. The instructor is amazing. We had a project due today (FIVE tax returns!) and I screwed up on mine. I turned it in before class, because I thought i... Read more
Progress in the kitchen
Monday, October 09, 2017      2 comments

But not the way you'd think. The old washer and gas dryer are out. The new (to me) electric dryer is hooked up. A new mini washer is on its way (hubs evidently broke the drain on the one I had when he stored it because it was broken when I went ... Read more
No rain today
Sunday, October 08, 2017      3 comments

So the market was able to happen. But the winds picked up and flipped a table with several racks. I had left a friend watching the tables while I started loading the car. She was evidently off doing something else. I didn't even know she had w... Read more
Rained out again. Ugh.
Saturday, October 07, 2017      5 comments

We were rained out for over a third of market days this year. Ouch. That hurts the bottom line. I picked a bad year to open the shop. But Hubs wants me to give it another year. That gives me plenty of time to reclaim my house from son movi... Read more
Getting there...

I'm slowly getting my house clean from son moving out. It's going to be a work in progress for a while. I do what I can manage within my physical ability and then rest until I can do more. Slowly it will come together... ... Read more

Another nice, long, well written blog went POOF in the upload process. Sigh. It is what it is. I'm not up for rewriting it, so this is my blog for the day ... Read more
The Tech War Continues-
Tuesday, October 03, 2017      0 comments

For the past 3 days, the tech has been winning. It refused to let me have the files I needed to do my work. After multiple calls to tech support and the help desk, I FINALLY have the files I need. And I've learned how to make the computer behave... Read more
Me? Eating apples??
Monday, October 02, 2017      3 comments

Yep. I found a kind of apple I don't loathe. Please don't start about how great apples are. I used to love apples, then they started messing with them and making all of the "designer" varieties and I just don't like them. Apples are not supposed... Read more
