Well, I survived my first go at 2nd Friday. 2nd and 3rd too. I’ve just been super lazy about posting…
I did about as poorly as expected but was so happy and relieved that I actually sold a couple things. While I didn’t come close to breaking even, I got my name out there and didn’t give up. Hopefully, when people start to look for holiday gifts and the weather is really nice I’ll get even more traffic. Hopefully.
There are few things in life I haven’t completely given up on. My regular behavior to cut and run when things get tough has been a cornerstone of my existence. I’d like the say that even though I didn’t turn a profit I’m more proud of myself for not quitting but that’d be a lie. I mean, who wouldn’t prefer making lots of money and being praised for their apparent talent?
One thing that certainly helped ease my anxiety over this experience is the newest member of my family, LambChop! I’ve wanted a dog for a while and as I’ve mentioned before, attempted one back in August. Bea Arthur was a really bad experience for me. She was not a good fit and I was definitely not emotionally prepared to train and take care of a puppy. I now know that that experience and the wait was worth it for LambChop. She is the perfect dog for me. Sweet, mellow, loving, housebroken!
I got so damn lucky with this dog. I hope I do right by her. She came from the shelter and we’ll rescue each other. Such a sweet, wonderful dog deserves a good home with lots of love and belly rubs. Financially, it may not have been the best decision but in light of so much frustration, stress, and pain in my life she is a source of comfort.
She may be a little stinky but she’s mine and I’ve definitely fallen for her! She’s damn good to cuddle with even if I always have to be the big spoon.
