Tomorrow is a very sad day here at YarnMartian Central. Tomorrow, Brenda is leaving us.
We're really sad to see her go because Brenda has brought a lot of fun and energy to the place. And cookies. She also brought cookies. Can't forget the cookies.
As you may recall if you've been reading this blog for a while, Brenda used to steal my Grand-daughter Madison when she came to visit. Brenda longed for a grand-child of her own.
Well, her daughter decided to make her Mom's dreams come true by presenting her with two (TWO!!!) grand-babies that are going to be born very soon -- all the way out in California. As you can imagine, as soon as she learned about the impending arrival of these grand-babies, Brenda decided to retire to the West Coast. Next week she'll be joining her daughter and son-in-law and leaving her Yarnmarket family behind.
Her husband, Mike, will be driving all their worldly possessions across the continent where his happy, oh so very happy wife will be awaiting him.
We're tickled to death that Brenda and Mike are so looking forward to this exciting new chapter in their lives. And we wish them all the best. Safe travels. The safe and healthy arrival of twin boys. And a safe delivery for their mom.
We're so sorry to see you go, Brenda. But it couldn't have been under happier circumstances. We'll miss you.
NOTE TO OUR CUSTOMERS: TOMORROW AT NOON WE'RE GOING TO BE HOLDING A GOODBYE FEAST FOR BRENDA. SO IF WE'RE SLOW GETTING TO THE PHONES, PLEASE FORGIVE US.
