Catch up Olympic Sunday folks!

Wow, it’s been over 2 weeks since I’ve posted and I apologize (I really don’t), but I have been super busy y’all!

So what have I been up too you ask?

Weelllll, the kid’s didn’t make the cake because we didn’t have any vegetable oil, only olive oil and they didn’t want to take a chance on a failed cake (I think they also got caught up playing Playstation together) that’s ok tho because I had cupcakes at work from my boss so it was a win anyways plus I splurged and ordered Chinese food yuummmy!

The first week at work setting up the store I worked 60 hours and 8 days in a row. Man was I beat and sore. I had a day off and then worked all last week. The store opened on time and slowly word is getting around town that we are there and open and it’s picking up.

There are a few things that I have noticed in my first  2 weeks of  employment and they are:

1. The quality of the products is improving and more and more name brand things are being added. The reason for this is because as of this month there is now 1,000 stores across Canada and the company’s buyers are able to buy product by huge amounts. Like say Kit Kat bars, they will go to Nestle and say “hey we want a deal on these chocolate bars” and then they will go ahead and make a deal to buy 50,000 truck loads of the shit if they get the deal!

2. Apparently the nail polish OPI is a high commodity and a good brand, I found this out as the local owner of the nail salon down the street came in and bought all of my stock and has been coming in every day looking for more and the dude even asked if I could give him a call when more of it comes in. In my mind I was thinking “no way guy am I going to call you and help you rip off your clients who are paying over $30 for your services thinking that they are getting expensive nail polish when your really using $1 stuff,,ummmm no way”. And I’m also tempted to keep that stuff in the back when it DOES come in and only once you have come in to check then bring it out. I mean give other people a chance at the deal geez!

Lesson here folks who get there nails done. Is if you want to use expensive nail polish buy it yourself and bring with you!

I made the decision in the New Year to get back to doing something I used to like to do and that was to get back to sewing. I like to do it for fun and now I’m hoping to make it into a small at home business. So a few weeks ago I went to the local sewing shop and put some money down on a new machine and I picked it up yesterday:

sewingmess Yah, it’s still in the box and to the right I have some notions that I bought to fool around with this weekend as it’s a long weekend here. It’s family day weekend where everything is closed and your supposed to spend time with your family, meh whatevah,,,I see them EVERY day.

Valentines Day was on Friday and I wasn’t really looking forward to it but I got a call on Wednesday from the guy I met on New Year’s Eve and he invited me out for dinner. It was really nice and we had a good time talking and getting to know each other. It felt good to go out knowing there was no pressure  and that nothing was expected other than good conversation. He is still going thru a nasty divorce that has been ongoing for over 2 years and finally goes to court in March. We both have no intentions of rushing things and are content on going out once a month or so. He was such a gentleman helping me with my coat opening doors etc…And look he even brought me a card and chocolates!

And it's even the GOOD kind,,the one's that don't ever get reduced,lol!

And it’s even the GOOD kind,,the one’s that don’t ever get reduced,lol!

The plan today is to clean off this messy dining room table and break out that snazzy new sewing machine, probably watch some YouTube video’s on how to use the thing and make some stuff!

But first, my daughter’s and I are walking down to the local pub at noon, have some wings and beer and cheer along with the locals as the Canadian Men’s Hockey team beat I mean play against team Finland!

What's your favourite event at the Winter Olympics?

    Hello there,

    Great to know you are getting super busy and enjoying it. A rare trait to observe in people these days.

    Hey, you are supposed to help your store sell, not act on your impulse to save nail polish patrons 🙂 Just kidding. Look at it this way, the guy is probably charging extra for his services, and if he can make a cheap nail polish look glitzy enough to please his clientele he deserves the extra bucks. Besides he is probably a well paying boss, so his staff are going to make some money too.

    Good luck with your sewing hobby. Who knows we could be talking to the next big designer from Canada on these blog posts 🙂

    Go Canada. I support you in any sport you play, except if you compete against my country 🙂
