But who does, really? So... to sum up my summer...

  • became a carnie, am now craft show veteran
  • got engaged
  • planned a wedding in between craft shows (still planning)
  • worked just about nonstop betweeen the gallery and the jewelry
  • got braces for 3rd time; this time, must wear retainer...
  • turned 28
  • two days after birthday, car broken into, radio stolen
  • instead of getting desired present of car bumper for birthday, request a new radio instead. bumper still has embarrassing hole in it, surely affecting my aerodynamic agility in driving and possibly lowering gas mileage
  • tried to go part time at the gallery but one lady "retired", bosslady is out with sick sister, and new girl we hired to cover them quit in about a week; my loyalty is exploited for their benefit
  • bob, our 82 yr old accountant at work, fell today and broke his hip
  • framer who worked for the gallery for over 20 years was fired last week (he was not very nice to me)
  • too busy to do consignment any more, have legitimate wholesale catalog
  • total fear in the back of my mind as I have no idea how jewelry income is affecting my taxes..
  • also freaking out b/c must drive to Austin, Texas... very excited about show, not excited about 13 hour drive to get there
  • watched a rousing game of adult kick ball yesterday, stayed on sidelines and cheered everyone on
