  • Mood:

happy, sad, all at once

Today is going to be my big push to move over here! A friend is lending me a truck, but it's only available for today. So I'm looking for someone to help Jovino with the heavy stuff (my hands are screwed up from old RSI from teh '90s so I'm not good for heavy lifting.) Hopefully I can find someone on short notice.

Happy about that!

Sad about an email I just sent. I am having to miss an event that I have attended (and taken on an organizing role with) for years... I've been going to these for nearly a decade (I think it would have been my 8th year) but this year I am having to give it up to work another craft fair in the city. Our business needs the exposure (not to mention the cash) so I know it is the right thing to do, but I am sad about missing out, and I feel bad that I can't be there to help as I always have. I feel like I am letting down the main organizer (who is a friend of mine) and everyone else who will be expecting me to be there, running my part of things. Even though I know it is the right thing, I'm still torn, and sad. : (

I do have a little leftover happy from yesterday - the first Sunset party of the year! Stafford Lake was gorgeous as always, the music was lush, and the people (friends and random folks we met) were fun. We took a really lightweight couch out and sat on it, sewing ears for the sale, as people came by and talked to us. It was a great day and I am so glad we made it out!

So, I guess Happy is ahead. But Sad is still there. If only I could be in two places at once (or it was possible to go back and forth and just miss the one day. Too far away for that.)

Well, I don't have time for any more of this - I need to get to the PO and mail out some orders, then head over to my old place and make like a box packing fiend! I'm hoping to have very little left after today, and should be able to manage that.

Wish me luck! And if you want to help me move stuff after 7pm this evening, hit me up, yo!
