Okay, I’m back for an afternoon post, but this was not the post I was planning to write! We have a little bad news for those who were planning on attending Saturday’s trunk shows at either of the two wonderful stores. Due to all the stress and exhaustion of the past few weeks, Susie is getting sick again. As in her auto-immune disorder is starting to flare up. Towards the end of the shipping craziness, Susie was starting to get sick, but we were both hoping that a few good night’s sleep would clear everything up and that she’d be okay for the trunk shows. Unfortunately that is not actually the case. She’s got an emergency appointment at John Hopkins on Friday morning and will hopefully be on her way home to Virginia Friday afternoon to try and get some rest and to get better.
We can’t say how disappointed we are that she won’t be able to be at Knit or Purls of Wisdom on Saturday, especially because some of our favorite people were planning on attending, and these are really awesome shops. Both owners were incredibly gracious with our last-minute canceling and we’re looking forward to rescheduling these events for as soon as she’s feeling well enough to go. We’ll let you know what the new date is as soon as we know.
We’re both learning about how far Susie can push herself before she needs to rest and it’s clear that this was too much. We certainly didn’t plan for the timing to work out this way (shipping madness back to back with a trunk show tour) and are definitely being more aware of how precious her energy is and what we can both do to protect it.
