Tired and Throbbing

Well, pardon my southern, but "I'm wore slap out, y'all"!

We've worked for 11 days straight from morning into the night and we are DONE!

were moved into this........
and became this.....
and this....
and this........
and this, etc.
And so, the new store opens in the morning and I am throbbing all over.  Yes, my hair even throbs.  I never knew hair could throb until now, but take my word for throbs.

I just wanted to check in to let y'all know that I'm still among the living.....if you use the term ever so loosely, that is.  And as soon as the feeling returns to my limbs, my mind can, once again, process a thought, and I can no longer feel my pulse in my eyebrows, then I'll get back with you.

It's a blessing when you have a job you love to do.  Five years ago, I was looking for a needed change from the wedding floral business at the very moment that my cousin-in-law (is that a word?), Daniel, and cousin, Amy, were looking for help in starting up their pharmacy gift shops, so it's really been a God thing.  It's fun stuff and they're fun people and that all makes working fun.          

We couldn't have made the opening date without hardworking PATTIE and her sons, Justin and Jared.  And a big thanks to Kim, Jill, Blair, Carson, Davis, and sweet friends, who stopped by to help or just brought goodies to keep us going. 

I'm just ready to resume my normal schedule, which involves eating home cooked meals, working far fewer hours, sleeping way more, and blogging!  I have so much I want to write about, but it won't happen tonight, because my mind is.......well, it's throbbing.

Let me go to bed before I fall out and I'll see you in the next day or two! 

Happy Monday, y'all!          


  1. Your shop looks amazing! I wish I could come visit it!

    1. Thanks, April! So glad to have that behind us! Wish you could come, too.

  2. It sounded like you had a lot of help with family and friends. Good luck with the new store! A relaxing scented soak in the tub sounds like a good prescription for you. Kathleen in Az
