I hope everyone is having a good weekend. It is gorgeous outside here in North Alabama. The sun is shining bright and there is not a cloud in the sky. The high today is supposed to be 66. On days like today, I just want to get in my car and drive to wherever my car takes me. Supper Club is going to eat in a town about 2o miles away. We have to be there at 5:30, but we are leaving at 4:20. We are going to take our time and enjoy the beautiful day.
A friend of the family just came in and bought a 12 pack of Coors Light. He said that his son, who was a pallbearer at my father's funeral, called him from Ireland. He is on his way home from Iraq and wanted a 12 pack of beer sitting in his refrigerator when he got home. I should have gave it to him. Maybe we can give him another thing of beer before he goes back. He goes back in a few weeks, but will be home for good in September.
I gained a pound this past week. I'm hoping that it was what I ate last night. It was good, but a little too salty for my taste. I decided that Monday night, I am going to walk on the treadmill. I am going to start out slow and build up. I try to take the stairs at work when I can, but in the past few months, sometimes when I start down the stairs, I have a split second panic attack. Our HR Director caught me having a slight attack one day and advised me not to take them. I was surprised, because she never takes the elevator, always the stairs.
Everything seems to be working out with the store. (I hope I don't jinx us) The buyer's loan was approved and the appraiser will be here tomorrow. A couple of weeks ago, the people that lease the restaurant decided that they didn't want it anymore. Yesterday, they said that they changed their minds. I think there were some minor problems that caused them to make a hasty decision. My mother is questioning whether we are doing the right thing. I know how she feels. I think with everything working out the way it is, we are. The buyer is a nice person who loves people and loves owning a liquor store. She said that she has wanted this store for a long time and was just waiting for the appropriate time to approach us. I think she will take the store and love it like my father did. I hope the customers will show her as much love and respect as they did us.
I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their weekend.
