Today was spent getting Manager settled into her new digs - the North bedroom of my house. She will stay here until the Cracked CAuldron is a success - and it will act as an incentive, for few children truly enjoy returning to live with their parents.
Her cats, rat, and bunny have settled in happily, even if the kitten is leery of the pre-existing ferrets.
In the heat of the move, I made caramel hazelnut frosted coffees to go with the hazelnut chip shortbreads as a break-time snack. They were exceptionally well received by neightbors and helpers.
Yes, plural - we're packing Manager down from a 2 bedroom apartment that was just over 1,000 square feet of space into a bedroom that's 195 square feet.
And I have to find storage space for all the kitchen and bakery equipment we've bought until Manager has a location for the Cracked Cauldron and we can move all those things there.
Fortunately, Monday, she will go to the attorney and finish the paperwork to set the Cracked Cauldron up as a Subchapter S Corporation. Then to the bank to transfer funds from my account to hers and finish the loan paperwork.
While she's doing that, she'll be looking at properties.
And I've put a professional sounding message on the answering machine.
All I have to do now is remember to answer the phone professionally.
