And they’re off…..

 And it’s another week with another post for the FOLK Journal Challenge.

The Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 4th. The Kentucky Derby is known as the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” What has been the most exciting moment in your life thus far?

This one is a pretty hard one to answer because I am rather a Manic personality. I get pretty excited pretty easily about a lot of things that some people just don’t get. (there’s a down side to this too, because I get upset and depressed about an equal amount of things at times….my wife calls it the roller coaster life of living with me….)

So picking one most exciting moment is kinda hard for me.  At the moment, I am very, very excited to be getting ready for Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon later this month.  I LOVE Quilt Market, not only for all the cool quilty stuff, but also for my many friends! And each time I go, I seem to make more friends…a very cool thing.

But Most Exciting? It would have to be the day I married my wife, Linda.  Life is better these days if things AREN’T exciting, but you don’t know that when you are first married, and just being so in love is so exhilarating. And exciting.  The next most exciting times would be when each of my kids were born. The first of course being the most exciting because it was such a new experience.  Yeah, I’d say those were the most exciting times.

I think as we age excitement is not as important. I am beginning to feel reflection is better. Not to the point of not doing things, because I still like to do things!  As I said earlier, I am really excited about going to Market it just a few weeks (eek!) and I am working up plans for Next Summer teaching at Sisters, OR again. Uber-excited about that. And I think I will actually be going to Fall Market in Houston this fall…a big first for me!

Today’s a pretty short post as I have a TON to do still before Market….
Like getting prizes like this:  Market prizes.

ready to giveaway at the Generation Q Magazine booth (#1102) just next to the Michael Miller booth  (which is always a show-stopper because they are in New York City right near a theatrical prop shop and they rent the coolest display stuff!) and the bathrooms….two really good places to be next too!!

So I am cutting this post short, as I really do have a lot to do still…and that ole DayJob that I love (but not as much as this job) needs my time too…

Cheers, all!
