I appreciate the e's. I intend to write to you. I'm just getting to the point of not gritting my teeth to the gumline.
I've got a lot going on with the legal service <that HOPEfully> will help me with this. Papers have to be filed by Thursday and I have to drive into Vegas on Wed. YUUUUUUKKKKKK!
At least I didn't have to go in when they had the Nascar thing going on. Total insanity. It was kind of funny because it was like Day of the Triffids or something here. Absolutely DEAD on the streets the whole weekend. I don't know if anyone had the same news about it but they showed all of the roads leaving the area after the race was over and it was a parking lot. I could have walked faster. I kept thinking 'can you imagine the amount of gas all of these things were wasting?' I personally can't see it being worth the expense or trouble. Maybe going to the track...but ... Heck no...
Nobody asked me...it's DESERT for God's sake! Pick a place and make a parking lot and BUS people in!
I've have been looking for positions in all kinds of places. (not here) Yes, it's heartening. There IS A REAL WORLD OUT THERE!!!
I think we're going to focus on Billings. Pop over 110k and I didn't see a proper bakery or catering listed anywhere I Googled. (is it me or does that sound funny?)
I like the rural/rustic/western aspect of Montana. We had a great 7 acre property about 30 miles N of Yellowstone right before we moved to this ... place. <family problems...don't ask...wait for the book>
In any event, my dear youngest (15) is now determined that we are going to open a B&B/dude ranch/cafe/catering/petting zoo/animal rehab-reserve...I am now officially exhausted months prior to even moving.
This wonderful plan of course is all mutated into one grand package with her but I've explained, or at least tried to, that we have to START by getting out of here to get there. I can certainly understand her enthusiasm because I'd like to do the same thing. BUT I'm an old fart, not an immortal teen (heck, 5 rounds of bowling messed my left leg up for MONTHS last year...sheesh!). I keep pretending that I'm still 19 and my bod goes...uh.....noooooooooooo? You want me to do what?
Her mission is to do research on just what the beginning steps will be to impliment her plans. I homeschool so this will be a great op for her to understand the basics of business. It would be so nice if all you had to do was WISH IT REALLY REALLY HARD....LOL! :p (Um...what was I just saying about growing up? OH, that's optional...)
She has some great ideas but we just have to get over the in your face right now hurdles.
I made about 8 zillion choc chip cookies over the weekend for taste tests around the valley. (Heck with 'will work for food'...'will make cookies for money!') So I'm going to run around tomorrow and see what kind of interest I can generate. I'm trying to make a kind of soft cookie for ice cream sands, but having a little trouble. Think it has to have more of a cake base than my typical cookie base. I like them crispy but also used straight butter because I understand it will make them softer (nope). So I'm going to be FORCED to experiment.
In the meantime my dear daughter is eating her weight in cookies and milk...:eek: (What's for dinner ma? ... just kidding)
Actually it's more like: Want a cookie? "YUP"...Pick up your clothes...:D
Will know more on Thursday.
