Yeah, that was the sound of my head exploding.
Home from vacation, and only about a gazillion things to do. I’ve had some productive days, but other days I feel like I’m just spinning my wheels.
Yesterday was quite productive, thanks to my use of child labor:
Hey! They volunteered! And remarkably, worked really hard and helped me price a whole gob of stuff.
The funniest part is all of the business “advice” they have been giving me. Various things they think I ought to be doing to get ready for the store-opening.
Today they wanted to know if I had a slogan. Like “Always low prices. Always.” or “Eat Well. Pay Less”.
Anybody know which stores those are from??
My boys actually watch very little commercial TV, so they avoid most exposure to slogans and jingles, but in this day and age, it can’t be avoided. Plus, they pay attention when we go shopping.
They are still working on what they think my “slogan” ought to be. Their most recent attempt was a little long. I’m sure they’ll keep trying.
We’ve been talking about which yarn is which and what it’s made out of and that sort of thing. They want to know where stuff is so they can help customers. This is all going to be a very interesting experience.
I’m feeling a little bit (OK, a LOT) overwhelmed today. That might be a lack of an adequate amount of caffeine. I keep looking at the whole big picture, when I need to remember to put my head down and focus on the task list. Break it down and remember to think about how to eat an elephant.
p.s. the slogans? Wal-Mart and Target, of course. But you knew that, right?
Send those cute boys over here– I need some help, too! Better yet, let them stay there and work, and you come over and I’ll make you a cappucino, with a double shot of espresso!

Isn’t child labor the best?!? Your little sweatshop! I think it’s great that they are interested. They will learn so much!
