First of all, can I just complain about how sore I am? I am presently laying down on the couch with back pain, shoulder pain and sciatic nerve pain in my legs after 2 days of pushing that stroller through the snow and hauling some gift boxes and marshmallows to the Gifted Market this morning (yeah, I know, but believe it or not, marshmallows are heavier than you think). With my bad back, I’m not really supposed to pick up and carry anything over 10 lbs because it will trigger back and sciatic nerve pain, but sometimes that can’t be avoided.
So day 2 of the Gifted Market is complete. People, it’s not that I don’t love you, but I’m not really cut out for the vendor thing. Physically it’s hard on my back to be standing and sitting in 1 place for 9 hours and I wish I was more exuberant and bubbly, but I’m just too tired. There’s certainly an art to being a good sales person. I don’t think I have it, but sometimes you gotta pitch in for the team. Mark’s back on duty tomorrow and we’ll both be there on the last day. In the meantime, I’ll be putting on my mom hat all day tomorrow. Maybe we’ll even make more paper snowflakes.
