Countdown

No, not my favorite political news show on MSNBC... a countdown to Vacation!!!  Next Sunday, the 29th, we're heading out for 4 days or so.  We're taking the wee one on her first trip to the beach and I cannot wait.  We're keeping it a secret from her till we get there (we'll just call it another of our adventures) or we'll be hearing "Are we at the beach yet?" every five seconds for the entire trip down.  I know I was that way when I went with my folks, so I can expect nothing less from my little bit.  
I'll have to see if I can embroider in the car without getting ill, lol.  Otherwise, though, it's gonna be a craft-free week and I'm kinda glad.  It'll be nice to step away from it all and come back refreshed and full of new ideas.  I'm debating with myself about what to do with the shop... whether to leave it open or make everything inactive.  I think the store will be left open, and I'll have an announcement in the shop, in my avatar, and in the message to the buyer that all purchases will ship out when I get back later in the week.  We'll see.  
Oh, it's gonna be a loooong week! :)

Yeah, don't make things inactive - you could even change your note to seller to say you're gone (or did you say that already). No reason not to make a sale or two just 'cause you're at the beach.

Yeah, definitely keep the shop open. Then you can say you're having a "working vacation" without doing any actual working. Have fun at the beach!
