One of the things that took us so long to settle when we were getting ready to open our kitchen supply store was the aspect of credit card processing. Deciding on a processor was actually a really big decision since it's a service that costs money, and we didn't want to choose incorrectly and end up losing out. Thankfully, my brother is a business consultant and helped us look over all the options in our area and decide on the best plan. Another factor that kept us from opening on time was the growing list of construction issues in our old warehouse where we were to open the store. I don't know what we would have done without our contractor, Ryan, but he certainly saved our life on more than one occasion. Now that were open, all the hassles seem like so long ago, but I can't forget how much work went into getting this place off the ground. It sure makes me appreciate each day that runs smoothly in this store of ours!


The weather has just been awful. A couple of weeks ago the weather was just perfect to be out and about, driving and even taking Ralph's mustang convertible with the top down. Kaitlyn calls it the "up down". I am not a big fan of convertible but my husband has a love affair with his mustang that I call " missy the hussy". I prefer to be closed in inside a car where I don't hear how fast were going, no wind to mess up my straggly hair. My husband has always been game to almost everything I request so I also have to compromise. He loves his car but he loves to drive it more with me by his side. I am really out numbered when its warm and we have the kids, they will readily ask daddy to use the convertible instead of the van or our second go to car. Looks like I will be needing a few bandanas and a baseball cap in the summer when we take the mustang out for a ride.
