Shhh...you didn't see me here!

Soo.....I am not supposed to be playing on the blog...there is a ton of work to do! Don't tell Jared I'm writing here...hahahaa....

But I wanted to let you know that we arrived safely as planned on Day #3 of our drive. We managed to hit the worst snow storm since February...although it really wasn't that bad (for me, at least...since I didn't touch the wheel as soon as that weather hit)! I will post photos later...

But since arriving a bit over a week ago, we have managed to lay down a new laminate flooring, build new displays, I have fought with printer drivers galore, and we are setting up an entirely new storage facility for our glass ornaments. There are many other projects on the list, such as installing a new small water heater for our back room, putting up humongous sheets of slatwall in our back room, so that our shelving will be more flexible (wahooo for free slatwall!), registering Ella for daycare (yay...I'm so excited for her!), receiving and pricing about 60 shipments (gasp...the sound of that is atrocious!), and clean up all of the sawdust that has covered every inch of our glass shelves and product (and we have a LOT of glass shelves)!

Oh yeah, and I need to act busy in case Jared pulls back up in the van...I'm supposed to be boxing ornaments to move to our storage :-)

I will try to post photos and stories soon, but to be honest, I don't know how much I'll get done this month, or even this summer. The nuttiness of this household is just beginning, as cruise ships begin arriving on May 5th!!

'Til then...

See who? Where? LOL! Hey, everyone should get at least a 10 minute break from time to time. :) I'm so glad to hear that you arrived safely. It sounds like you have both been working non-stop since you arrived! Thank you for finding a minute to update those of us who stalk your blog, lol!!

Hugs,
Joni

Good luck getting all set up. I hope the summer isn't too crazy for you...(but crazy enough to be good business!) I have a friend going on a cruise up there this summer and she is planning to visit your store. Have a great summer and post when you can!

You certainly have a few projects on hand! Whew! I got tired reading... and you are still dealing with a very little baby! Does she sleep through the night yet?? Are you guys squeezed into your home for the summer in a semi-comfy way? Love ya! PS Hunter wants to know why you would move Ella FURTHER from his house. He was very upset.
