Quotes:
Things that touched my heart,
Brian:
This is my Aunt ! And I have son! And he is Just like ME! ( as he introduced me to his bride )

Aunt Joan:
You WILL be at church tomorrow? ( she asked me this a few times in a row, very firmly. ) I told her yes. I know my duty. This is Yia Yia, this is my Godmother. There is no question of my being there. She seemed happy about it. Something about tough older greek woman, I love them.

Cousin Julie:
As we were hugging each other so tight. "Ah we are the persona non gratis we two" Which we are. We don't really fit in there, but we love this family so much to not be there would be such a betrayal to our hearts it would be a sin of blood.

Blessed and other scary stuff

You can be thankful for many things, and scared also. I am those and the whole ball of wax. Let's work it backwards okay?

Thank you to the nice CSR from Verizion. Yes, you read that correctly. A Customer Service Rep that was NICE. Her name is Renee. She was sweet, polite and helpful. Can't go wrong with that at 8:15 on a Saturday morning.

Craigslist: Who would have thought you could get a top of the line, and I do mean A ... Top ... Of ... the... Line ... Washing Machine off Craigslist for hardly anything. To the woman who sold it to us, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I do not know your situation, you looked terrified, I hope the money will help you. I called the manufacture and was able to get the full 7 year warranty on the motor and lifetime warranty on the drum. WOOT!
A matching dryer is being picked up near Fort Drum today from a Solider who came home from Germany and has no room for it in his house. It is brand new, in his storage unit on base. Packed up by the Army. Thank you for coming home safe.

Still sick. Simple as that. Many factors.
~ My right hand is shot from the dog bite last fall. I am told there is permeant damage in it. Lacing corsets and sewing was awful. Holding a fork lots of times can be a problem. Maybe in another six months or a year it will be easier I hope.
~ There is a serious systemic yeast infection. Breathing is tight. Ears hurt. Mouth, Tongue and throat hurts skin is just gross in spots. The GP put me on Diflucan the Wednesday before faire ended. That was August 15th. That threw my body into a full blown Steven-Johnson Reaction. Three hours after taking the Diflucan the horrible itching and dizziness started. Still getting on and off low grade fevers. It's been a month since taking the pill. The last time that I had a Steven-Johnsons reaction to a drug it was 7 month recovery period. I am literally praying that because my diet is so much better now than it was then that I will not go though the skin necroses like I did the last time. Because truly *that* is terrifying. Trying to explain to people that you are allergic to antibiotics to this degree. Most of the time they do not believe me. I did go to the ER friday after taking the pill. The Doctor there confirmed that I was having Steven-Johnsons Syndrome Reaction. And to just do what I normally would do for it. Gave me medicine for the pain which I have used sparingly and have followed up with the GP who ran a corse of steroids which I don't think did squat. I've been using Benadryl when thing become too much to bear and zinc oxide. I wish that I could just tear all my skin off, my eyes, ears, even my teeth. Reach deep inside to my lungs and rinse them so well with saline give them a good scrub. If I could..... But then again if I could, there would be a unicorn outside for my dreams. a beautiful black one.

~ I have Lyme. Guess how it is normally treated? Antibiotics. I have been going to my Chiropractor for adjustments to help with everything. He is my blessing. I have been losing my eye site all summer as far as reading. This could be due to the Lyme. I am not sure. I had just gotten new glasses last autumn. But blind as a bat sums it up quite well. So this forces me to actually rest when I am exhausted. Not an easy thing for me. For those that really know me, know that I get to the point of tears when I am beyond tired. When I have gone just too far, I love pushing myself. I haven't been able to this past month :/ My workouts have been tiny, limited and at home. But at least I am still doing them.

Pandora: What a wonderful thing this is! Thank you Ralph for introducing me it. I love it so much. <3

Random thought as I write this entry: many of the words in here as I run it through spell check still look wrong to me. Is it the computer or my brain? This is happening more and more often. So very frustrating.

Depends on the situation. But as far as the glass.... it is always full, never empty.
Are you more of an optimist or a pessimist?

Sterling Renaissance Festival- First Weekend

Wowsers! Great welcoming home. I was so scared on how would I ever do this without Delilah, and yes I was very nervous with out her, BUT....... me, the Clothing Faerie... Rocked! The whole team Rocked! Virginia our Boss lady, the Designer of all the wonderful Clothes in our Booth makes it so easy to work. We have Stock, lots and lots of stock. And everything is true to size. What a nice change from where I worked before. I mean no disrespect to my previous bosses, but this is so much better for me. We are busy little bees.

Faire was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
First off I cry way too easy. Oh my goodness I LOVE MY JOB!
~ "You gave me boobies-thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!"
Tiny girl from the Coin Booth named Shawna that is maybe an A cup, I gave her Cleavage She gave me a $5.00 tip! "Coinage for Cleavege!" I told her that would be at great Breast Cancer Ad. She LOVED it!

~ My First sale was a trial by fire ~ Oy vey ! My BossLady Virginia Says "Customers Always Lie #1 and That the Customer is Always right #2" Father comes in with his daughter and want's to dress her up. No problem. She is going into the Third grade. Outfit is $150.00 without tax. Run the credit card.... declined.
"There is nothing wrong with it- run it again" ( it's a Platinum Visa) okay so we do, of corse it is declined. "Do you have anyother cards? Or do you want to go up to the ATM at the gate? " " I don't have the PIN- and no other cards, he is manically typing on his phone for 20 minutes. Finally Opens his wallet where there are F o u r other credit cards, and hands us one. Bingo it goes through. I feel better, I wasn't worried about losing the sale, just about making the little girl sad and telling her she had to take off the linen gown.

~One young women who just kept standing outside with her Beau sighing "Wedding dresses don't HAVE to be white do they?" We have a New design called Twilight that is so beautiful and light weight, with hoops that you can sit easily with in, in over 20 different colors. Our sample color is in Tiffany Blue- THAT kind of Blue for main blue. It weighs as much as a whisper. I cried when we dressed the mannequin - Disney could not come up with a better Princess gown.
Anyhow..... This sweet young woman is getting married later this year and was wearing her Beau's Garb...... UGG!!!! So we dressed her up in pretty girly clothes first off, he almost fell over, They Both could not stop smiling. This is when I got teary they wear so romantic " I can't wait to marry you- You are the most beautiful girl ever." Then he hugged and kissed her softly. I love my job.
They came back two more time to stare at the dress. Final time they spoke with Miss Virginia picked out a color, she took measurements, And sweet young bride will have a BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DRESS - that she can wear a Festival also. Bonus♥

Last Story I promise. And the Best.

~ I made a Marine cry. He was wonderful. He wanted a kilt. He gave me a price range. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT OUR KILTS. The prices, nothing. I haven't been trained in them ..... yet. I got a crash corse. Oh nelly! Yes. Marine, Special Forces, Sniper- His name is Glenn.
I told him Thank You so much for your service to our country and shook his hand. He started bawling his eyes out. He collapsed in my arms and just was sobbing I told him about Delilah and that she took care of me, and that now she and I go up to the VA on Thursdays to visit the Veterans (that brought more tears ) He lost a brother in Vietnam, I told him NO. He is with him now, and touched his chest. And now I will carry his bother also as will Delilah. ( More Tears from Glenn - Thankyouthankyouthankyou ) "You have made my day!" Virginia told him that getting a kilt will seem so anti climatic after that- he said "No I still really want a kilt Please!" So she had me find him one. I - unfortunately picked out one of our most expensive kilts. 100% Scottish Wool in the Tartan that Virginia Designed for the Wolfstone Clan. As soon as he saw it he fell in love with it. It is a battle kilt. The type like the wore in Braveheart- No buckles only held up by the belt. So to fit it to the gentleman you have to put your hands on his hips to figure out how many much pleating you need, and then have at eight and a half yard of wool. MINGA! Then lay him down dead center of the pleating wrap the flat parts around him ( like bunting a baby ) then slide the leather belt around his waist ( I WAS SO EMBARRASSED to be that up close and personal to another mans business- I kept repeating - I'm so sorry- Mea culpa- Just pretend your' Girthing a horse - because it is the same pattern with the belt ) And Pull REALLY tight! And Help him up. Glenn has broken every bone in his body except for his left cheek and right hip.

The Clothing Faerie strikes again. made him very happy. I cried when Virginia explained that this was one of the $480.00 Kilts. He did not want to spend more than $200.00 - I kept apologising that I picked the wrong one. "He said that it was Meant to be-He was taking it- it was his that we were family now" Virginia explained to him about what the tartan meant which got him even more excited. Now he gets a discount for the rest of his life 5% with the company Because he is part of Clan Wolfstone. He considers me a Vet even though according to the US GOV I am not, He and most others do because I tried, because I signed up. Because I wanted so badly. That is a great gift that he gave me gave me by saying that. A Vietnam Veteran- thanking me, little old me. wow! More tears from me.... and him.
