That time of the year
When I hide out and let the past consume my days!
And memories of a Dream come true take over *sigh*
8 years ago I spent the entire month of April
packing up our life to relocate for hubbies work
Yes piles of items to put in storage since we would be residing in an RV
Items that we would need in our RV
and that pile that just kept growing of items to sell in a Yard sale
well wow that pile took over, because the day we had our sale
we got rid of almost everything we owned!
*that in itself was a big shock and not an easy thing to do*
Making a move to the unknown was scary to say the least
I had been home alone for awhile as he was already on the job in
East Texas, And while he was there he shocked me by going to a
Great little town packed with shops and renting a building
I pretty much every year since have spent the month of April
broken hearted that we relocated back to Oklahoma
And we won't say that I will get any better until after the month of June
The last day of April we pulled out with a Pickup full and a trailer
behind us, that was it, that was all we took!
I spent days painting and rummaging at sales to get display pieces
and sewing my tail off, as I only had three items made to open shop!
The month of May we built display items and finished the inside
of my store so I could open in June !
It did not take me long to fill it up and it was such a great success!
I miss it so much! And would do it all over again in a heartbeat
I lost all of my photos after my store was open when I lost a computer!
The People in East Texas were wonderful
I will never get over closing this little corner store up
There is a building where we live at for lease and I would love to have it!
But knowing we are in an area where it would not be feasible for me to
open a business, due to it being a seasonal tourist area, I just spend time
DAYDREAMING *with a few tears*
Funny how one thing in life can have such a tremendous tug on your heart
I miss East Texas and I MISS my store
