Don't Be A Stranger

I hate when I can't sleep. I slept for about 2 hours. Woke up. Now it's been an hour and I can't get to sleep again. Right now is not the time for insomnia!  

Our cafe is opening soon and I feel like I'm on the verge of burnout. There is so much going on right now and even though I'm doing only a fraction of what Shawn is, I feel like I can barely keep up. Don't even begin to ask me when the last time I cooked a meal or had time to clean. There's always time I guess but not the energy. Even if I go help out for half a day I'm shot.  Having said that...

I can't wait until we're open!  I'm very excited and nervous. I'm not sure what this will look like for me but I'm excited to be out of the house a bit and I'm sure you'll see me sitting with a latte in hand quite a bit. So stop in to visit and don't be a stranger. If I'm not in the main area feel free to peek your head around the corner into the office. Lol. At least for the first few weeks while we attempt to figure this out. Thankfully Shawn has holidays to help get this off the ground and my mom is coming to help hold down the fort here. We might just get a home cooked meal yet!!  

Well it's 3:20 now so I'm going to attempt some sleep. Our first order comes in tomorrow and I get to play some more with the drink machines. ;).

Maybe one day

I think I need to live in Northern New Zealand. Where the average temperature is around 20 degrees. I think the coldest is 7 degrees and the hottest is 29. Lol. It's tough to be outside. I don't hang out in the heat. It's hard to work in the heat. I need air conditioning and coolness!!  It zaps me. Just like that. Almost with a snap of the fingers the life drains out of me. If I go in a hot tub or have a hot pack on everything goes numb. And not just slightly but entirely!  Thank goodness the feeling comes back!  I hesitate to say bring on winter because other than hockey I hate being frozen too. Too bad it can't be fall all the time. But honestly I'm sick of summer already. The only good thing is I don't have to bundle up. I could handle an ocean though. Where the breeze blows and I can just relax. I've never gone but maybe one day. :).  Maybe one day I'll live in New Zealand. Maybe one day there will be a cure and I can stop dreaming about it.
