I am so thankful that Amanda and Caroline were able to come up and stay with me during market. Otherwise, I think I’d have gone crazy. For those of you who have never exeperienced any type of trade “show”, let me tell you: it’s not as exciting as it sounds. It’s a bunch of people that would rather be somewhere else trying to get other people to buy things they really don’t need. YIPEEEE!! But, it pays my bills, and it allows me to spend time with Amanda and Caroline. That hasn’t always been the case. Before Caroline was born, Amanda had to work (by that I mean she had to work and get paid for it. Now she works harder for free!), so I was up here by my lonesome. Praise God they can come with me! I’ve got at least 4 more years of this before the little one starts school, so I’m going to enjoy every moment.
Be afraid…be very afraid. The Tree Newt has found his perch. I’m here at the International Home Furnishings Market, bored out of my mind, and I was fiddling with my google account and thought: “Hey, why not start a blog?” No one will ever read this, save my brother and brother-in-law (and they only for the purpose of ragging on me), but I figured I’d give it a whirl.
Speaking of Caroline, she got to go to her first Easter Egg hunt today. She wasn’t very impressed by the event, Amanda tells me. Seems she didn’t really get into crawling around looking for tiny pastel colored eggs. Why, I’m not sure, because at home she spends all her time exploring for the tiniest of particles on the floor, and then proceeding to put them in her mouth. The Egg hunt should have appealed to her, but it didn’t. Oh well…I’m kind of glad, because I couldn’t be there for it.
Ok…I’m running out of things to ramble about. That’s not a really frequent thing with me, but I’m tired, so enjoy the short post.
The Tree Newt is on the Perch!
