Well, he finally did it!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
As of Wednesday night, we now have the keys to a building with a six month lease for hub to put his bakery in! It's only 3/4 of a mile from home, has a fully furnished kitchen, and get this, the rent won't start until he starts baking and selling from the premises! That is a great thing 'cause we need to scrub it down and paint the inside of the building before we move our stuff in. I was a wee bit nervous about this, 'cause I do hate change, but I'm now to the point to where I'm thinking of the good things about it, some of those being, (1) when we unload the vehicle, I won't have to go up and down the couple of steps here at home, and my knees will be very happy about that! (2)I won't have to try to avoid kicking the cats across the floor accientally while carrying stuff, and keeping them in won't be such a hassle either. (3) I'll regain the use of my closets in my house for stuff that isn't cooking related! I'm sure I'll think of others as we go along too!

We got the electricity on today, and have an appointment to meet with the health inspector Monday afternoon, so probably next week we'll be cleaning and painting and moving and such, I'm actually excited!!

Yip, mom, dad and I are keeping the shoe store, and as a matter of fact once he gets a certain license, we're going to clear out an area for some bakery display cases there. I'll help wherever I'm needed, truthfully!

Cindy, this is wonderful news! As much as anything because it seems that it's happening in a way that feels positive to you -- for a person who doesn't take to change readily, that's no small thing. Congratulations. We'll be waiting eagerly for updates.

Oh Cindy, I knew you were trying to rent that buidling for Charlie's bakery! So glad it went through! I sure wish I lived closer to help you guys get it ready! Jerry says he would be the official taste tester to make sure all products were edible! What a guy to make such a sacrafice huh???
We wish you guys all the luck in the world!!!

That sounds like it will be a GREAT change! Good luck to you both!!

Oooh how exciting - I think it's always scarier looking at the possibility of things than it is to actually get on with them. Somehow when the ball's rolling you just cope with it, but when you're thinking of starting it rolling it's scary


I wish you all the luck in the world - I hope everything goes OK for you both. Good luck on Monday.

Hub met with the health dept. inspector today, nothing major to do, just some cleaning and a little minor repair work to be done before we get it inspected and rated to open!!!!

I am so late in reading this...huge congratulations to you both, and a request...up the road, as things go well consider having an online aspect for any of your speciality stuff? I am truly one of those nuts who will order bakery stuff over the net if it's something special

Even if we don't have an "online outlet", all our TCS friends are welcome to give me a buzz and ask for something special. Hub is one of those who loves to tinker with new recipes, so if he doesn't make it, he's willing to try!

That, Tricia, is an understatement! I know that several months ago I asked God for help with some things, and this is the product of those prayers, 'cause everything is working out way too smoothly for it not to be ment to be!

God is just amazing that way.
