Moving to the new store

Saturday was moving day for the store.
We moved from my double booth space in Taylorsville down the road about 20 miles to Louisville and my new store.
Of course it was the hottest recorded day in Louisville history,
and the air conditioning, after suffering a lightening strike
was out at the booth space.

Imagine packing up inventory in the middle of an old
department store with no ac and no fans.
Miss B above summarizes how we felt once we got to the new store.
First went in the case goods, including book cases, china cabinet,
tables, dresser, etc.

Then the boxes came up (remember I'm on the 2nd floor)
one after another. Who knew I had so much stuff?
Okay I knew I had so much stuff, but didn't want them too.
More and more boxes and I became overwhelmed.

How am I ever going to get this setup by
opening day of August 7th?

The children, God bless their innocent exuberance, were unfazed
and pushed forward with their father.

Miss B began organizing and "de-cluttering" right away.
By the time we left for Wick's Pizza at 6:30,
the store seemed to have some organization to it.
A very big hug and thank you to my wonderful hubby and kids
for all their help!!
I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
for Met Monday.
