I find that I keep wanting to write about my stressful week. I’ve resolved to do so, once everything is done. Until then, all I can really say is… Wow, I’m stressed.
I’m sitting at Legends right now, waiting for the final round of Friday Night Magic to end. Jamie and I are holding an indoor yard sale here this weekend, which is going for four days. It means being here at 8am, and staying long into the day, possibly late into the night. It is, indeed, contributing to our stress.
We’re trying to keep the shop operational during this, and so far, it’s working ok. I would have preferred a bit more of a turnout for the event, but I’ll take what I can get.
I can’t say much about why we’re stressed, yet. But I can say this: I am unbelievably grateful for the friends and family that I have. A core group of our friends have really rallied around us during these events, and I’m truly blessed by them.
I’m hoping the rest of our shop regulars can get involved as well. We’ve done our best to impress upon them the importance of the situation. I’m not sure they quite understand, though, and I guess the fact that I can’t explain it very well only makes that worse.
The other thing I am grateful is Jamie. She has been amazing through all of this. The situation has been so emotional, and she’s got a lot going on as well. I can’t say enough how much her presence in my life has made me a better person.
I’m sure I’m rambling, I just needed put some of my thoughts down on paper (virtual or otherwise).
