The rollercoaster continues...

Things here are still in limbo as the term sheet for the pub is still being drawn up. I am not getting my hopes up as we all know that deals can fall through. I am just waiting to sign on the line so that I can have some emotion.
We recently moved hubby's mom to a new nursing home which is walking distance to our house. It has been an extremely hard move for her as it is not nearly as nice as her last home. We just couldn't afford to keep her there. It breaks my heart to see her so sad. We have been visiting daily and yesterday I went to the store and brought her some snacks and had the coordinator for the home give her a tour. She was happy to see the beauty salon and ice cream shop located at the home. I was not so pleased with the nurses and had to ask them to help a lady in the next room because they were ignoring her cries. How many times does a patient have to yell "Somebody help me" before they get off thier lazy asses. Thier excuse was that she yells for help all the time. Well, maybe she needs it. What if this one time she really needed help. How would they know? I am sure that I will be a huge thorn in this new nursing homes side as I will not tolerate this. I will be checking in daily and maybe more than that. I wish there was more that we could do.
Today is step-daugthers 22nd birthday and we are going to have pizza with her this evening. Mom-in-law will also be joining us as it will give her a break from the home and a chance to mingle with others.

A little bit of crazy here!

So things here have been an emotional rollercoaster lately! Moving to Missouri, getting a new pub in Illinois, moving to Missouri, getting a new pub in Illinois..... Which one is it?

For those of you readers that are unaware of my past let me fill you in. My hubby and I owned an Irish Pub here in Illinois and for no reason other than our landlords ability to pay his taxes we closed. My husband has been working diligently on getting finances for a new pub and just recently we had given up. We were going to throw in the towel and moving south. A few weeks ago an "angel investor" approached us and things have been moving swiftly in that area. We havent signed anything yet so it isnt 100% sure yet.

So I dont have an answer to my above question. The rollercoaster hasnt stopped yet and I am hoping that there arent to many dips in the future.

On the cooking front I have been baking pies like crazy. The boys around here are spoiled and I have depleted all my blueberries we picked this summer. (I bought some frozen ones at Meijer and no one seems to notice.... Or maybe they have and they just dont care)

One more thing: Hair

If you truely value your hair than I suggest that you NEVER, EVER go to Great Clips. I went on Friday for a quick trim and the unexperienced stylist cut off 8 inches in the back. I literally had a hole in the back of my hair. And I had long, beautiful hair down to the middle of my back. I cried for days and my hubby suggest to go see a new stylist at a new salon. So I did. I went to JC Penny Salon where I met Susan. She gave me the better style ever and I am forever grateful. It looks amazing! She will have my business forever!
