Holy...Monkeys....I'm....Walkin' The Line....

The night...before a show...
is always... a restless one...
Did I get everything....
What am I forgetting...
Do I have enough...
Did I pack enough supplies...
My mind is racing...
I had a call...yesterday..to do The Most..Amazing...Event...I have ever been Blessed to be asked to do...{and...a Huge...Undertaking!!!! I am Over The Top Excited!!!!}
We set the dates....for mid October...
I thought...
Great...after The Fall Harvest Sale...
Smooooth Sailin'!
then...about 3 a.m.
my eyes  popped open...
I remembered... I had agreed to do a Wedding Reception....in mid October...
Holy Smokes!!!!
There is No Changing the Wedding Reception...date...
{another....Huge...and So Very Important Undertaking!!!}
I'll figure it out....it's gonna be a Craaaaaazy October!!!!
But What FUN!!!!! {The Fall Harvest Sale...alone...is Huge....as Well!!!}
I couldn't sleep...so checked my e-mail...at 3:30....there was one...written...just moments before...from the ER... from a Sweet Pal...who is my neighbor...at Gold Rush....she is very ill...
and may not be able to fill my third booth.....
{Prayers...to her!!!! Bless Her Heart!!!!}
So....Peg is going to drive a second truck...and we'll keep loading...this morn....
It's pouring down rain....
and...I'm dancin' on a Razor Blade....
With help...from Gut Eating....Coffee... Strong...Stogies...and my Trusty Aleve...
I'm...Steadily...Walkin' the Line.... : )
oh dear....
The Fun Never Ends!!!!
See Ya At Gold Rush!!!!
With Frickin' Bells On!!!
Love...to Ya!!!!

I have never met Peg, but I am thrilled to hear she is up to driving a truck to Gold Rush! You two have lots of fun and sell it all!!!
We used to do the Oronoco show, but took it off our schedule. I miss it. It was fun.
