6 Days till Opening

My whole body is hurting. A lot. But it is all coming together good. Or almost. We had a little issue yesterday. The material was supposed to arrive Saturday afternoon, well apparently they got their at 7 am. Thankfully they did not have my phone-number and finally reached Vincent in Sweden at 8.30ish who then talked to us and we went to the store at 9ish. They had asked me what the loading docks looked like, and if they could load the truck any way. I said yes, as I figured we ould lower or heighten the dock… Well, you can, but the guy had loaded the (big) truck from the SIDE. Arghh. So we needed a fork lift, which we did NOT have… But Bookie saved the day by putting on a smile at the grocery store nearby and soon after he came driving along in a fork lift 🙂

The rest of the day was spent handing out balloons and magazines to people outside the store location

At night I managed a 30 min pit stop at a surprise birthday party, Carro thought I looked all vintage in my saw-dusty shirt…

Today – we are unloading the shoe boxes!
