The restaurant has been cleaned and polished but is not ready to open.
I have truly enjoyed the break.
I have not finished all my projects that I said I would do if I had some time off. I didn’t realize that the dishes have to be done ALL THE TIME, that my house keeps getting dirty, that the lawn keeps growing.
I found a million other projects to do first.
My family is healthy but compromised.
I am healthy. My husband, who had multiple heart surgeries in March is recovering, but not up to pulling his weight around the house…..not really pulling any weight unless I nag him. My mom celebrated her 91st birthday in a retirement community in Buckhead, alone, bored. My daughter is fine, working in the ER at Athen’s Regional Hospital. (non-covid). She is starting Medical School at Trinity on St Vincent in September.
I want to reopen Babette’s Cafe.
I ran some very conservative sales figures for the rest of this year and I could easily lose $75,000.00. Which is really great in the scheme of things.
I want to retire.
Ummm, see above – med school. I could pull social security starting next month. The building would never sell as a restaurant because people will be giving them away for free come this fall. I think the developers are slowing down and I would not get a good price for the land right now. Plus there is this little thing called Capital Gains that will kick me in the arse.
There are a lot of post surgery doctor’s visits.
I did not quit smoking.
I have gained weight but am doing better now, mainly because I got tired of doing the dishes.
My garden is fantastic.
I am not walking my dogs long enough because I seem to have to hurry back to do something urgent each day.???
I have had some painting done at my house. Not because I can afford it, but because I can’t stand looking at how dirty it is/was.
I am only binge watching TV in the AM = 2 cups of coffee.
I did not received any help from government loans…..But that’s in my next post.
I miss my staff.
I miss my customers.
I miss the buzz of the restaurant. Will we get our buzz back?
