sales.


we live for sundays in this job. it is our only day together. its very important to me that grant gets to run around and be a boy on these days. anything to get his mind off sales. i don't think people really understand how difficult this job can be. when people hear about summer sales, they usually think about money. never stories about boys sweating for 10 hours straight, guns being pointed at them, people yelling at them or even just their entire digestive system being completely wacked because of their crazy schedule. who honestly wants to KNOCK ON DOORS FOR 10+ HOURS?!?!?! but they do. and THEY WORK HARD. so hard.

I was just telling my friend Jenna R. (Whose husband does summer sales) that you guys are LUCKY to only have to endure this during the summer. My husband works those kind of hours year round. 6 days a week. I feel ya tho..ITS SO HARD. ESP. on the guys. TRev did sales one summer and seriously got physically ill when he had to go knock. Wait till u have kids if he's still doing it!

PS u guys are such a cute couple!

I hear ya sister! Summer sales are a killer and all those things you listed are so true! My brother is out here with us this year and he just got chased by a dog into a ditch with all kinds of gross things in it! There's these kinds of stories everyday out here. These men are wonderful because heaven knows I couldn't do it. The pictures from when your friend came to see you are so fun! I loved the wild life park! We used to have a turtle and just like the one you saw he too did yoga on a daily basis :) Oh and yes please add me to your private list: breelynehin@gmail.com
