Bubble Bursting............

 

 

 

In talking with a few vendors there are radius restrictions, as I knew there could be.  Some as little as 10 miles (which is OK) .... others have stated 15 miles and one (my favorite) 50 MILES....can you believe that!!!

I talked at length with that guy...told him the current supplier doesn't always have what we need/want and I refuse to drive into Jacksonville (he agreed) OR Myrtle Beach to shop.

How terrible!

I was even thinking of going around the whole "dance" idea and incorporating pageant, gymnastics, ice skating and cheerleading.  Clothes wise I could get by with some vendors with the 10 mile radius.

Still waiting to hear from a few others.

I could do without having a shoe inventory.  Just apparel, makeup, hair accessories and jewels and miscellaneous T-shirts and gifts....but geeeesh.

Sigh..............

Gonna have to wait out on some other vendor information.  Looking gloomy over here.

********************************

Mr Man has so far been decent.  Wed he worked with J and had a couple glasses (20oz??? who knows)  of wine.  He did call me at 6:15pm and said "I'll be here for a bit, I'll call you in 45 mins or an hour".  Kudos on that one.

Us girls jumped into the steam bath known as the pool....actually it felt decent, helped ease the achy muscles.

At 8:15pm I called him and said "your one hour is way up!".  He wasn't long coming home (kudos again for answering a phone), but I did smell the alky on his breath from across the pool!

He jumped in with me after the girls got out (Miss T, Roomie and T's friend).  I reminded him that our agreement was if he helped his friend "J" out that it was NOT to become a drink fest --- no drinking after work.  Been there done that one wasn't pretty!!!

Today he's helping my stepDad with a plumbing project. 

Day by day.........that's all I can do now.

Wishing you luck with your new business venture.  It's a lot of work but sounds like something new and exciting.  I'm praying that Tom has learned his lesson and realizes just what he has almost lost.  You're right...one day and one step at a time.  HUGS  Chris

Glad you're taking things one day at a time. I'm excited for you on the business. I would send all my friends your way. Don't know if you have had time, but I posted my Monday Memory Lane entry today and it's L.A's dance pics from when she was growing up. We used to have a girl that was an ice skater who came to ballet and worked for her routine. She was training for olympics.
Hope you have a greet week.
Take care, Chrissie

So sorry to hear about the restrictions for vendors and hope it gets all worked out.  I LOVE your idea about incorporating cheer uniforms and gymnastics and dance wear so you will get so many more customers!!!!!  Hugs,
Lisa
