Yesterday was slow at work, I'm thinking our busy season is winding down and I'm not sure where that will bring our store. I'd like to think with the economy down and the fact that people will still have to have glasses, they'll choose us since we have such good prices.
Of course I won't be around to see but I still care about this little store, it is sort of like my baby that I've tried to grow and nourish and make sure our customers are treated better than if they'd gone somewhere else.
And sometimes glasses ,believe it or not, are not on people's highest propriety list, especially if they already have at least one old broken down pair that they can still have way see out of. More and more people have vision insurance now but that's only if they still have a job. Things are tough for sure.
I will not however miss the pressure that comes down from the powers that be when sales are down. I will be sitting on the deck, drinking my perfect cup of coffee, and trying to come to terms with how my life is so very different than it was just a year ago. I will be having very interesting conversations with my granddaughter and enjoying being with the people I love most in the world.
If I can get through the day, I have the weekend off. I'm driving my co-workers nuts as I'm afraid as I am restless and can't concentrate. I think they are ready for me to just go already!
And so that's what I'm thinking this morning. As Shirley said to me last week, in the tune of Raw Hide, "Movin', Movin', Movin' ". That's what I'm singing this morning Shirley, over and over and over.
Have a good day!
