i’m not very good at saying goodbye to anyone or anything… i’m WAAAAY to sentimental and emotional about things…. a few examples
** everytime i went back to school to start a new semester.. saying goodby to my dad and watcher would make me teary….
** when matt and i 1st started dating and he was doing the whole back and forth thing… if i knew i wasnt going to see him for a few days i got teary…
** for a brief moment during melyssas bachelorette party.. jos and i got in a discussion about how we hate never seeing each other, she wished i never moved away, etc etc WE got teary
** any semi-sad movie i get teary 😉
** if i see someone or hear someone i love get sad… like i did with someone on the phone the other day, i get teary…
it’s just ineveitable… ( sorry its 1 am i’m NOT doing spell check )
2morrow im going to get in my car and drive up to concord nh, to this ecclectic lil shop called caardvark
there’s sooo much to this lil gift store i wont even be able to touch upon it all
* it was my first "real" job after college
* it was one of those experiences where your "boss" was teaching you more about life then you realized
* i put "boss" in quotes cause its hard to call adele that… since she became and IS much more than that… shes most impirtantly a very dear friend
* adele owns the store, but has chose to close it to pursue more creative adventures with all of her artistic abilities….
so 2morrow i’m driving up to say goodbye….
i’ll walk through the front door where theres a large pink aardvark sitting there to great you… 1st stop will be the counter, to see if MT the store cat is sunbathing in her artificial light….
then i’ll walk down the stairs to the office area where i spent numerous hours planning fun events for the store, creating class ideas, helping to order upcoming product, designing ads, signs and creating my large pieces of "art" to decorate the front window 😉
i’m going to sit at the "conference" table, as adele calls it.. and have a yummy lunch that we’ll pick up at the deli behind the store… and chit chat with adele about her upcoming plans….
she and i would have the longest "mettings" at the table planning what one would think would be the end to poverty or something but in all reality it was something probablly as simple as an open house event…. we would work out EVERY detail.. discuss every option.. and come up with the MOST creative, fun, ecclectic ideas ever….
VERBAGEwas born at this table….
"no, no" became a trademark….
and i even got adele to be able to stand hearing "girlies" at the top of a "memo"
ohhhh the memo’s those were always fun!… ok i’m rambling….it’s beacuse it’s late and im stil catching up on sleep from our trip to vegas…..
so i will elave you with a scan of the present i made for adele…. to remind her… that even when caardvark isnt there anymore… it will still feel like home in my heart 😉
( and all the stories from vegas and the opening patriots game soon to come!!)
