Just a few words

It has now been one day over a month since I last posted on my blog.  I had such good intentions when I last posted.  I really thought I would get back into the blogging groove and at least post 1-2 times a week.  Somehow my plans went down the drain as the month progressed.   A quick recap of the past month:

1.  My store has been really busy, which is a really really really good thing.
2.  My store has flooded 3 times in the past month.  It appears that the lack of gutters on the building causes the water to build up at the base of the building on 2 sides and it flows in between the cement slab floor and the walls.  Fortunately I do not have anything sitting on the floors, so the only damage done has been to the many throw rugs I have scattered around the shop, and the indoor/outdoor carpet in my storage room.  Cleaning up all that water with a wet vacuum has made me have a back ache.  When you vacuum up 15-20 gallons of water it is tiring.   The good news is that on Monday a work crew will arrive to install gutters, and dig a french drain to eliminate any build up of water.  I hope it works!!
3.  My lovely daughter had emergency surgery.  She is now completely recovered, but it scared the beejeezus out of me.  To protect her privacy I will not go into any details on my blog.   
4.  I have just been to darn busy to think about blogging. 

So that is my story, and I am sticking to it.  I hope you have all had a great end to your summer.  We suffered with more over 95 degree days this summer than I can ever remember.  Thursday it was again over 90, then on Friday it dropped to the mid 60s.  I am so grateful for cooler weather, especially the nights in the 50s.  I would like to say I will continue to update my blog on a regular basis, but we all know that I have said that several times in the past, so only time will tell.  Peace Out.
