The Weekend is Here & A Rip Off!

Yes, the weekend is here but it won’t be our normal relax and do whatever kind of weekend. This weekend is a working weekend. From Thursday to Sunday we have events for one of our home businesses and some long days. Thursday will be fun as it will be with people we know and only a few hours. However, 11am-9pm on Friday! Oy! 9am-6pm Saturday and we are working all day on the Sabbath 10am-5pm. (Insert squeaky “Please don’t judge us!” voice) Can you say I think I am getting too old for this? Not really, I mean every mother works 24/7, right? I am truly thankful for the opportunity to work this event with my older daughters. I am grateful to a supportive husband who stays home to watch our younger crew. I am indebted to my husband’s boss who allows him to maintain a flexible schedule for family’s needs. We are blessed.

We only have a few events left for this year and then my girls and I are planning a sewing fest, which is always fun!

All that to say that I may not have much time to post or if I do it may be short and sweet for the next few days.

A Rip Off

Oh and back to weekend events, last weekend we had an awful experience. We had signed up and paid for a holiday craft fair only to arrive to ZERO cars in the parking lot! We did discover two employee cars after we drove around the buildings and neared the front of the grounds. What a rip off! It was so disappointing and we have yet to hear from the state’s attorney about whether they’ll help us recoup our vendor costs….because of course the promotion company isn’t returning our calls!

On the bright side we commiserated over Subway sandwiches and enjoyed the weekend at home.


Another thing that happened to me in November is my email was hacked! Lost everything. Couldn’t believe it. I am surviving though.

How about you any rip offs, scams or happy weekend memories to share?

This was written Wednesday night, just so you know! ;-)

    I know what you mean. I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed lately. I just want a day where I literally don’t have to do anything or go anywhere.

    I hope your week and weekend were much easier and your plate got lighter.
