This has been one lonnnngggggggg week. First, having to have our sweet cat put down. Then, the anticipation of the announcement of the closing of our retail store. Then, well...there's some stuff I'm worried about in my family right now. It's just been a week I'm happy to see be almost over.
It's pouring rain right now, with lots of thunder and lightning. I love it.
I hope you've all had a good week and are going to have a better weekend. I plan to sit in my rocker as much as I can, knitting or hooking...with maybe some time at the spinning wheel.
Thanks to all of you who have sent me such wonderful e-mails about our closing the retail shop.
It's folks like you who made it such a pleasure to be in business these last years, and the decision to do what we're doing hard .
For those customers who were nothing but a pain in the you know what, let me go down on record as saying you are high on my list for what I won't miss. I am tired of being polite to you while you can't return the favor. If you have never owned a retail business and been treated the way you've treated us, I hope you have the chance someday to know how it feels. You know who you are, if you're reading this (and I suspect at least a couple of you are). Remember that what goes around definitely comes around. If I've learned nothing else these last six years, I hope I've at least learned how to be a gracious and considerate customer.
Last, but not least, my heart felt thanks to all the condolence messages I got about the loss of our beloved Maynard. It really did help me get through it. ---Martie
