we’re outta here

August 14, 2009 |  Category:   travels


No, that is not a dead body above. Funny how some people will lay down just about anywhere to sun, huh?

Anyway, all our shops are closed, my freelance deadlines are handed in, I scrubbed and cleaned the house down yesterday (am I the only nut who does this before leaving?) and we’re trying to finish up with our packing. Mark’s gotta get all his kitchen stuff together as we plan to do some cooking out at the beach house. We’ve got a dozen or so packages to drop off at the post office, make a cookie delivery for a party in Brooklyn Heights and to one of our retailers, Provisions in Fort Greene, to drop off a wholesale order AND THEN we are done and on our way. Amazing.

Fall is shaping up to be quite a killer for the business as we have many events, in October in particular, and many weddings to do. We are already feeling the dread of being totally slammed in the months to come (can’t. think. about. holidays. yikes!!) but at least we won’t have to think about this stuff for more than a week. See you from the beach house.

    Have so much fun! This week, try not to think about what the upcoming months have in store and just enjoy the moment. I know this is clearly easier said than done but it’s my wish for you. You work so hard ALL the time and you both deserve this much needed rest!!

    And, no, you are not the only nut who cleans the house before leaving. Although I used to tease my mom about this like crazy while growing up, I do the exact same thing!!

    … have a wonderful time! Our summer in Germany is running out … in two weeks school starts again. My oldest daughter Pauline (7) looking for penfriend (quite traditionally with little lettern full of wishes and more) … maybe with Mia?
    all the best for you…

    I do the same thing! Before I leave for a vacation of some sort I always clean the house before I go. Have a great time at the beach ! 🙂

    Had to chime in b/c I clean like a mad woman before we leave for any kind of trip. My hubby thinks I’m nuts but it makes me so happy to come home to a clean and peaceful house, especially since it makes it easier to unpack and settle back in. Enjoy the beach!

    Have a good trip!! And no, you’re not the only one that cleans the house before leaving for a trip. I find it a big relief to come home to a clean and cozy place after a long (or short) vacation. *One less thing to do, you know…
