Well, the final paints and stuff were finished today, this evening; the office things were moved in as well as a large rug. Tomorrow, the rest of the inventory goes in, and then the alarm system (ADT)!!!

Thanks for the invitation to your grand opening Walt, I wish I could make it down there for it. I do hope that everything goes well and the business thrives thereafter.

Inventory is in; ADT is installed; Credit Card system installed; Phone lines activated; hmmm, have ai left anything out? Oh yeah, NOW the inventory is being moved around to the areas they need to be in and THEN the pricing begins!!!!

 

Oh the pain and joy of 'birthing' a new business!

 

Remember; we WILL be open on Saturday - THIS Saturday!!!! IF you decide to make a road trip, there WILL be refreshments!!! AND there is a bar right next door!!!!

Alright, FIRST let me tell you what happened with my paper that was due last night.. . I did NOT turn it in!!! That is alright because my instructor is out of town and would not actually SEE anyone's papers until she get back home SUNDAY NIGHT!!! Therefore, she extended the due date to Sunday at 11:59 pm CST!!!! So, of COURSE I am going to wait until the last possible moment to get this paper done! It is a slide presentation so I ought to be able to finish it well before this new due date! Luckily; I have about 75% of it ready to put to slides, so I should be fine!

 

Update on the store: we had an AWESOME opening!!!! In fact it was soo busy, my wife came home and immediately started planning more auction trips (there is one tomorrow which she is going to try to make, if she goes; I will need to watch the store for a few hours, so I better have the slides finished up). Anyway, regardless if she goes or not; the opening was a resounding success!

 

Thank you for the plants MAC, we REALLY appreciated them (someone put an offer on them, but, like the other of our flowers/plant baskets, they were politely turned down).

 

We were even selling things BEFORE we actually (officially) opened our doors for business! And we stayed open an hour later than planned for that same reason! Got a few 'lay-aways' for pickup tomorrow, things went just great!!!!

 

Now we need some sort of bookkeeping program to help keep track of, well, EVERYTHING!!! Although my wife & her mom would rather just use a pen and paper; one is dyslexic and the other tends to lose focus from exhaustion! I keep pushing some sort of program or hiring an accountant BEFORE we get too much further into this (actually, been suggesting this from the beginning, but, I am 'just' the husband and NOT a 'partner')!

 

Anyway, I am off to bed, a long day today and another long one tomorrow! Nite all.

I am glad that everything went well Walt. 

 

The plants are courtesy of NJ in behalf of all of us here at the board. It was NJ's brainchild but I was in cahoots with her on this.

 

I am glad that the “friends” I mentioned, the plants, could make it.
