Hello, my favorite blog people! I have MISSED you this past week!
I’m sitting in DFW Airport, hoping that my flight does not get delayed any longer…
I went to Dallas Market and worked my little hide off. I soaked in the Southern experience, refreshed my accent and ate way too much. Got little sleep, stood on my feet 10-13 hours every day and sold a LOT of things for the showroom I worked in. It is amazing what people will buy.
It was wonderful. I know, I know, doesn’t sound completely wonderful…but it really was a lot of fun.
I also froze. Yes, froze.
When it’s Summer, I dress for Summer. Short-sleeve shirts, skirts, bare legs, sandals…
The thing is, in Dallas it’s 99 degrees outside/1,000% humidity and about 59 degrees inside. I felt like I needed a dadgum sweater and tights on everywhere I went.
I had perpetual goose bumps.
My hair grew a million times per second.
My teeth chattered as I tapped away on my Palm.
My nose hairs grew icicles.
Not really on that last part, but it sort of felt that way…
Anyhoo, besides that, it was a perfectly delightful trip. My parents came midway through and I was able to go with them to dinner a few nights. They celebrated their 40th Anniversary over the weekend! Isn’t that remarkable! So grateful for their love for each other and for me…
I saw some DEAR friends that I don’t get to see nearly enough and met many new friends along the way.
I did NOT get a single picture other than a couple on my phone. My charger never did turn up and I didn’t have time to get a new one. Methinks that will be at the top of the list of “Things To Do” this week.
I arranged for the kids to have presents from me to open every other day. I hid them in Nate’s closet and numbered them so they wouldn’t open them all at once. He kept them hidden and doled them out for me. I wanted them to have something fun, and at the same time, I thought it might save me from having to buy some far too expensive trinket in the airport to give them when I got home. There just isn’t much that I can buy at Market that works for Indigo. Greyley, yes. Indigo, no. However, when Nate asked Indigo about it, he declared, “NO!” he had not had his fill of presents.
I have major catch-up to do this week. I will not wear real clothes, makeup or shower for about five days. (Kidding on the shower part) I’m going to lay low and love on my fam. I also have some major blog reading to do, so get ready to get an overload of comments from me in the next few days, all of you blog writers…
Peace out, y’all.
