It’s been too long since I wrote a blog post. It’s been three and a half months. It’s been so long that WordPress prompted me with the introductory blog lessons when I logged in. Wasn’t that nice. LOL
As would be expected around this time of year, it’s a time of new beginnings and I am “beginning” again with this blog. My goal to one day having a brick-and-mortar book store has not changed and documenting the journey, regardless of it’s course and it’s inevitable roadblocks, is supposed to be done on this blog.
There has not been much progress since the last time I posted. I am still thankful for my full-time job because it IS a great job and pays my bills, however, one day I intend, God willing, to retire and, when I do, I’d like to have another source of income a little closer to my dream of having a book store. I will have a book store with a little cafe and be an integral part of the neighborhood. That’s the goal.
Mostly, I’ve been in the planning stage. And by ” planning stage”, I mean I’ve been looking at properties on Loopnet, reviewing all incoming copies of Publishers Weekly, and spending copious amounts of time daydreaming about running a book store.
It will happen…one day. It will happen sooner if I win the Lotto. In the mean time, keep watching this blog. Watch as I trudge forward, make mistakes, and arrive at the day when my dream becomes a reality. It’s going to be a slow journey, but it’s going to happen. Just watch.
