Monday Rambles

Every so often, I have this fear that I'll have nothing to ramble about come Monday.  Most of my weeks are just not that interesting.  Like this last one for example, where all I did was try, unsuccessfully, to catch up with stuff.

Seriously, I have so much posting, house cleaning, pricing and photo taking to catch up on that it is not even funny.  I have declared a moratorium on yard sales until I get all this stuff done and, more importantly, out of the house!  

There really isn't that much to share this time, but my blogging has been so very much off-kilter lately that I feel I do need to put something up.  Hell, this is the second week in a row that Monday Rambles is going up on a Tuesday.  Sigh!

I know that my quirky, eccentric nature is part of my charm--well, that and my boyish good looks--but this is getting to be a little ridiculous.

There are some things that I want to write about, but within the context of other things, so I need to hold off a little bit on them.  Plus get organized.  Plus get caught up.  Plus do some other stuff.

It's a never-ending cycle, I tell you!

Ironically enough, this may be the most rambly ramble I've done in a while.  Much ado about nothing and all that.

I can say that June has been a really good booth sales month.  A very nice bounce-back from May.  I just need to ponder how to keep that going.  Interestingly, after I cleaned and spruced the place last week, my sales actually dipped!  Not precipitously, but they were off for several days.  That's not the first time that has happened either.  Sometimes, my spaces seem to defy the generally accepted common logic.

There's a post in that somewhere.

Oh great!  Something else to throw on the list.

I think I'll go.  I need to trim my mustache.  (That's on the list, too.  I'm getting shaggy here.)

Scan tomorrow.  Think I'll do some thrifting after that's done. The yard sale moratorium does not extend to the thrifts.  Yes, I am inconsistent.  Also eccentric and boyishly handsome and shaggy.

After reading your post today Eddie I wonder if we EVER get caught up. I thought that when I retired from full time work it would take 2 years to get all the things that needed to be done, done. NOPE. Did not happen. Running a booth is at least a half time job when you include all the paperwork, finding, fixing, pricing, tagging, hauling etc. and I never seem to get caught up. Plus real life stuff fills every spare second not being used by being a reseller. Hugs.

Life keeps getting in the way of things I want to do! Not just fun things either, but things like CLEAN my house and downsize some more. Shucks I can't get caught up at all. My blogging is suffering also but I say 'let them eat cake' or whatever! Those who love me will remain, just the same as here with you...mostly because of your charm, boyishly good looks and all that stuff! Love ya!

You have me believing that Tuesday is actually Monday and I have extra time to do stuff. I spent all morning cleaning, straightening and adding new stock. It took two women and a teenager exactly 15 minutes to destroy my very pretty vignettes. At east they bought things!
