I had serious plans to blog twice yesterday, but I think that is over ambitious at this point. Yesterday evening was sucked up by another large trip to IKEA. I swindled my sister and our friend Sam into helping me haul the 3 large carts and 2 cars full of items back to the salon. We had items tied to the top of their little cars and packed through the interior. At about 9p we started hauling it inside. A huge project and I only received one very gnarly cardboard paper cut. Now we have to break into it and begin building. Double yikes.
I have to give a super big shout out to my husband. Not only has he officially adopted all of the house chores, the laundry, the grocery shopping and giving me very backrubs when I whine [That's a real thing btw.] -He has also taken on chores here at the salon including sanding, priming and painting the entire hallway of doom. [Its a really long hall and stairwell] This morning we were supposed to have a Mizani hair class in the space; however we have zero space. Late last night we moved the class to my living room. My dear, sweet, amazing husband slept for 5 hours and woke up early to clean our whole house. I even woke up to bacon and eggs. It was a beautiful start to this morning!
It is about 1p, we've already received the lowes delivery that was to arrive yesterday. The fridge is amazing, the washer, dryer, bathroom sink and back-splash are being worked on now. The construction team is busy finalizing the painting and the electrician is installing the last of the light fixtures for the downstairs. The sign company, is coming out to put the lettering on the door and I've spent at least 2 hours on the phone collectively chasing people for things.
I still have to work on a press release, creating a grand opening flyer, log in and purchase business cards, take photographs of all the non-beauty-product retail items and I need to leave for Lowes right now. I need to pick up curtain rods like 15 of them. Also, my dear friend Portia is having a birthday-happy hour thing that I am really hoping I can cut out and visit. -Fingers crossed.
All in all progress has been made, downstairs is almost complete and the heating and AC are finally hooked up. Doesn't do us any good, since they will be sanding the wood floors we can't turn on the system. We can't wait to turn up the heat, we've been glued to the most hood space heater. We literally argue over it. ha. Okay, lots to do!
