GB,
that's waht I was trying to tell you about on another post..I sometimes don't make myself very clear. Both my girls had tried out one of these places here and they love them..They said the place is always bustling and busy when they've gone in..Look into it, I know you would run a great store and you would be doing something you love...

Thanks kadesma. Actually you explained yourself perfectly and I completely knew what you were talking about. At the time I did not see it as a possibility because of the initial investment that would be required to get one of these stores up and running. I have since come to the conclusion that I could do this if I did not have a mortgage. Neither DW nor I wanted to live with my in-laws (even though I get along great with them), but now that does not seem like such a bad option. On Christmas my FIL even said something (in a very round about way) that meant he would like a reason to add an addition onto his house (he wants us to move in so he is closer to his grand daughter). We still have some things to think about and work out to see if this can really become a reality, but I am gung ho at this point. This is something that I can really see myself doing and succeeding at and actually enjoying!

Lol, not a lot is on my mind right now (or rather registering with my brain). I picked up a nasty sinus/head cold that DH brought home (it was "kind" enough to wait until last in the day on 25th to invade my system) and I'm sort of in a state of at the moment

Thank-you Pdswife It took DH about 6 days to get on the mend, I hope I can clear it out my system sooner - tis the cold season, so I guess it's hard to escape coming down with one.

(BTY, I hope you and Paul are having an awesome holiday season!)
