I'm Leaving on a Freight Train

Actually, we are leaving by car, tomorrow for Wilton, ND. Does anyone know where Wilton, ND is? It is about 20 miles north of Bismarck, ND. Which is the capitol of North Dakota, so of course all of you know where that is. Right? So I have been making sales calls to see if I can deliver orders on my way out there. I did some calling on Monday and sent out catalogs on Tuesday, and .... they came back to me in the mail because I needed more postage. Grrrr... I had to use my car and $3.14 gasoline to drive 10 miles each way to mail these catalogs. Yup, .92 each to mail, and about .75 each for the printing of the catalogs, so almost $1.50. I hope these customers decide to buy something. So many people say they haven't gotten the catalog, the catalogs would have arrived in the last 3 weeks and I try to remind them what is on the cover, just in case they got it and just don't remember, and then sometimes they say, "Oh, ya, I did get that". So does this mean that they get so many catalogs, they just toss mine in the garbage? Or did the mailing company just not mail out some of the catalogs? I don't get it. I had an awsome week in sales. Mostly Little Tikes and Step 2 products. I will be placing those orders on June 11.

Benjamin is the only one going with me. Mary Helen has play practice, and Jonathan is too hard to travel with. I think it will be good to have some one-on-one time with Benjamin.

I am sorta surprised because Ron and the kids are planning on going over to the wedding rehersal dinner on Friday, June 1. I always assumed that Mary Helen and I would go over and stay there and then the guys would come over on Saturday. This is great though. Serenity said she would be taking the kids and going back to Duluth for the night (it is only about 1 1/2 hours drive). It sounds like Ron and I will get to stay in a cabin that night. That Friday is our 16th anniversary. I am married to an awsome guy. I often think about what a lucky girl I am.
