Sooo. I decided that I need a place to ramble on about the goings on lately. I am pretty sure family and friends have had it with my babbling on.
This is my me time. Everyone is asleep and the phone doesn't ring. Ahhhhhhhh. Things have been so crazy, I am getting more and more nervous as the grand opening approaches. I am on the phone or online constantly, making sure there is no loose end untied. If I am not doing that, Len, 'lij and me are up at the store busting tail. Well, Elijah is giggling at his feet as we bust our tails. All the inventory is ordered, now it all just has to be here on time and displayed with such merchandising majic that people feel as if they MUST have it.
One minor snag, Robeez "lost" my order, and aren't shippingit till tomorrow. From Canada. I hope it gets here in time. Those shoes are featured in my ad in the paper :evil:
Russ baby will be in by next Wednesday, and then I have to get all of that display done. that's a lot of damn displaying too. I kinda lost my mind with that one. Tomorrow I will be at the store all day pricing and sanding and painting the display for the Baby Proof jeans line.
Len has been so awesome. My own personal Ty Pennington. He works all day, then comes home to my crazy sketches for more display pieces. He really does a great job, considering he never built anything before ever. He signed the loan papers and listens to my rambles about the biz and just is totally supportive.
Then there is the finishing of decorating the store. OY! Lucky for me, SIL is drooling over a few dresses, and said that she will work for cute clothes for Emma. She really has a great eye, so it will be so much help.
I wonder when the other shoe is going to drop. My dominant dreamer side says it won't , and that we are building our empire,LOL. But, there is a small nagging chicken shit voice that pops in every now and then and says this whole thing is just too insane to work.
Naw, it's kismet. My website is in progress, I actually got the domain name that I wanted- www.babysfirst.net I think that is so cool. That's the name of the brick and mortar boutique, btw.
Well golly, I feel better. I shall do this more often. Talking to yourself on the internet is therapeutic. Who new?
