Well today we began moving into the new salon......yippeee. I have to admit that it is a bitter-sweet time for me though. I have put alot of time and energy into the old space and to have to walk away (especially since it isn't my choice) is sad. :(
But.... The new space is awsome and things are coming together. Tomorrow the tanning beds are being delivered and assembled (we have a VERY long day ahead of us). And....Monday is the official open day in the new location!! Pictures will be coming soon!! :)

Well, I am feeling quite sad and quite overwhelmed at the same time. My last living grandparent passed away last thursday.

My grandfather was living in Fl. for the winter with my uncle. This has caused a delay in the funeral arrangements :( Here we are monday evening and we still don't know when the funeral is going to be yet.....AAARRGGHHH.

I am feeling overwhelmed, because we are supposed to have moving day this friday into the new salon. Obviously my family obligations come absolutely first!! None the less, there are many things to be done and all is on hold until I know when the funeral is going to be.

It is ok though, I know everything will work out EXACTLY the way it is supposed to!! God IS in control!!

What a Year!!

Well my attempt at being a blogger have been feeble to say the least. I have had quite a crazy year.

Last August was most assuredly the worst day of my life. My 15 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. We have had quite a turbulent 6 months!! I am glad to say though that he is now on an Minimed insulin pump and seems to be doing quite well!!

Praise God!!

I can't promise a thing, but I will try very hard "Country Mouse" to keep up with this.

There have been some other changes also!!

I have owned a hair salon for the last 5 years. I am being forced to vacate from my location. So for the last two months I have been searching for a new location and am glad to announce that we have found a place to relocate. We have been working diligently on fixing up the new place and are going to be opening for business on March 2!!

I am excited that we are going to be able to offer tanning as an option for our customers!! The new space is almost twice as big as the old location so tanning seemed like the most logical way to use the space with the least amount of time involvement on my part.

Everything seemed to fall into place.

Again......Praise God!!
