I'm Ready Now
I secretly desire to be organized. I pretend I'm really ok with my procrastinating ways. Truth be told, I need to pace myself much better.
Take for instance, JB Knacker's Spring Fling Celebration held last weekend. Tawnya and I worked all evening before the opening painting, cleaning and just plain "whooshing" the shop into a different look. I then sent her home as she had yummy cupcakes to whip up for the next day, and I continued on into the wee morning hours. My husband was sweet enough to "volunteer" his time to help from 9pm until he was just too grumpy. For some reason this year, I followed him home...not to sleep, oh no,no,no...just to shower and freshen up a bit.
I returned very early in the morning hours before the doors were to be opened for the celebration. I kept saying to myself, "Come on Brenda...a little faster...you can do it!" And yet, there was still piles of junk and pretties on the floor as the customers arrived. So much stuff still needed to be tagged (truly, my Achilles heel).
All I can say is... these people who shop JB Knacker are the BEST! They are flexible, laugh easily and down-to-earth!! And they somehow put up w/ my deviant ways. Now, I am not saying there is no need to improve, that they will always put up w/ me, and I can just coast from here on out. Their carefree attitude inspires me to be better. I am going to start to work on my procrastination problem tomorrow...I love Mondays just for that reason!!
Seriously, I want to thank all of those beautiful people that make staying up all night sooooo worth it! You came out on a cloudy, rainy weekend to celebrate the beginning of spring with us. I loved the chatting, the kids playing (parents chasing the kids)and the catching up on all the happenings. Thank you for your support and all of the nice comments.
I love this job ~ Brenda
