I mean, can it be any more neglected? Time to change that, I hope. Groundhog day is next week, and I’m hoping the furry critter will tell us that spring is nigh.
Wow, what a whirlwind it has been. Owning a coffee shop? Awesome, and infuriating. Energizing, and tiring. It’s a good thing we love the people, or else all the energy we have put into this thing would be such a drain. And me? Well, I’m working TWO jobs now, just to pay the bills. Yeah, 2008 was not the prime time to open an indie coffee shop in a small town. But, many great friendships, among other things (dare I say…Karaoke?) have come from our experience. We are looking forward to something even bigger and better in the future, for us, for this town…and we’ve got some awesome people behind us.
Ok, speaking of Groundhog Day…..Seth, Drew, and I will be attending the Unschoolers Winter Waterpark Gathering in Sandusky, Ohio next week, February 2 through the 6th! We are so excited. We missed Live and Learn in 2008 after attending the three years before that (St. Louis, Albuquerque, and Black Mountain part 1). And I’ve got a new camera, PLUS I’ve dusted off the old camcorder, so stay tuned for lots of pictorial documentation of our trip.
I am prepared (I think?) to see probably the most snow I’ve ever seen in my life. The boys have new snow boots. Snow? What am I thinking? An average temp of 40 degrees F in North Carolina is enough to make me want to hibernate. It’s going to be much colder there, duh! I hope the trunk of my Honda will hold all the clothes I’m going to have to take to keep warm.
Ok, I must go study for ACLS now. I’m taking the class on tomorrow and Friday (a certification I should probably have if I want to do travel nursing), then Saturday I’m packing. Saturday night is Karaoke and the Unusual Shoppe, then Sunday the boys and I are embarking on our winter adventure.
