Every so often, I have a quiet day in the world of Zoe. And that is ok because there will be many not quiet days in the months ahead!
Yesterday afternoon, I went to Old Town to pick up a Christmas gift for my niece and run an errand for my mother. (Do not hate me - I've decided to finish all of my Christmas shopping by the end of October this year. I feel like I have a lot to do with Zoe in the coming months and don't want to miss out on the enjoyment of all of it!) Of course, it was a beautiful autumn day but I was overwhelmed with the number of people out shopping, dining, and walking around Old Town.
I've been struggling with whether or not be open 6 or 7 days a week. My mentor, Greer, was open 6 days a week when she first started her business. She has since expanded to 7. Sunday is an important day to me, not only from a worship standpoint but from a renewal standpoint. I wrote my business plan to be open 6 days a week in the first year, and although I see the crowds and think about the extra business, I hope I can stick to my plan of 6 days a week.
I started this morning with an inventory of the remaining forms (both state/commonwealth and city) that I need to fill out once Zoe is confirmed in her "home". I feel like I have those details in place now, meaning I know what I need to do once the lease is signed. Architect Michael had a question following the review of the MEP plans I forwarded to him on Friday and I spoke to my broker about that question. And, toward the end of the day, I received a FedEx tracking notification from RTR - something has shipped! With the weight indicated on the notification, I think it is likely the proofs for my bags. That would be very exciting! I hope they arrive on Wednesday!
