My interview came out this morning. I sat down to read it after driving back at 6am from Atlanta. I am finally feeling better, but still have a cough that I hope is gone by Thursday for the Grand Opening. I have to admit that there are times that I am afraid that I wont have enough inventory, until i remember that my entire image is "Quality not Quantity." What have I gotten myself into? Lord, sometime I wonder how I have made it this long on our fine ole earth. teehee.

A week from now I hope to slow down enough that i can walk to work. I need it...for body and mind. I also want to get back to my yoga. I have been missing her the last 3 weeks. maybe i can do a little at the shop when i am slow...AS IF! I am totally going to be slammed with customers every moment.

It is official...I have lost my voice. As of 10.42pm this even I can longer communicate via vocal chords. From this day until I regain my verbal communication I will only be able to communicate via blog. Let's just hope I can keep up.

I have taken over Brian's magical Yeti feet. I just can't get enough of them. The minute I walk in the door on goes the feet. Not only are they sexy, but warm as well. They go well with my Frodo Baggins hairy legs (as Brian calls me in the winter). jajajaja

grandpa dad

Dad and I spent the weekend working at the boutique and I have been having the time of my life, but it all caught up with me yesterday and I had to spend the day in bed. I finally crashed for a day. I am still not back at the boutique, talking the day off after an early run to the dump. I am doing laundry, washing dishes, catching up on emails...talking to the dogs...they have missed me. -grin

I recieved a call from the ABH today and they want to do an interview on me. What a pleasant surprise. It has been months since the press contacted me and I am always enjoy talking about myself. jajajaja It should be fun and a little press never hurt.

Sunny and Stormy

The weather has been CRAZY the past week. One day it will be sunny and warm, then the next tornado's are hitting Atlanta. What the? All day it was off and on. I have to admit it was a bit romantic, but instead of spending it cuddled up on the sofa with the dogs and Athothy and the dogs I was working in the boutique with dad. I have the best parents in the world!

A couple of notes:

I want to apologize for my lack of communications to my wonderful Leslie. Once the boutique is up and running I hope to have more time to spend catching up. Just know that you are in my thoughts and I love you!

Bibbi, I do have your bag done, but I have been too busy to get to the UPS shop to ship it. I will give you the heads up when I have sent it. Sorry for the delay, I hope it is worth the wait. I will have it there in time for spring/summer (hopefully...teehee).

It is hard to believe that the prickly pear blossoms have come and gone. The strange weather this year in Athens has made for early and short blooming seasons for many of your favorites. At least they are still blooming.

Brian spent the night working with me last night. After dinner at Allen's for a couple of burgers we came home and hit the hay. It had been so long since I have worked that hard and I loved every minute of it. It is always great to feel a sense of accomplishment. I can't wait until that comes in the form of a paycheck. -teehee

My dinners have been light these days, due to a busy schedule. I might just start talking off the pounds! Also, when up and running, the boutique is a 40 minute walk to work instead of the 20 CCSD was...did I just mention my old job? it seems like lives ago. I don't miss it a bit.

I have been slammed the past week prepping for today. The day of destruction and rebuilding. I am tearing down a wall in the boutique today. I will be on my own until around 3pm. I am always a little leary about doing things like this on my own - at least when it comes to wiring. WISH ME LUCK!

Life has just taken an unexpected turn. Friday I decided I am going to open a boutique. As of Monday I will be signing the lease and getting started on renovations. I plan to be open by April 1st. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I am excited to take the leap. It is a lot sooner then I thought, but wht the only live once. I will be documenting the adventure on a different blog just for the business.

These are two combination for the samples I am sending out. 2 down, 4 to go. I haven't found trim for the bottom pair...I think the orange one is too childish looking. This is a lot harder then I thought it would be.
