Exciting News!!!!!!!

So, it's been a few days since posting and a lot has happened since then!!!  (I know I'm a horrible sporadic blogger, I'll try to do better)

Drum Roll Please.........................................................................................

I'm buying a cafe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

J and I will take ownership of the turn key ready to go place on Jan 1.  We will open for business on Jan. 2 at 6 am!

It's called the Main Street Cafe and is the only one in our small town!!!!  It is a hole in the wall type of place (and literally has a hole in the wall which is awesome) and serves home cooked type of food.  I love it!  The only changes I'll have to make starting out is adding pies and cheesecakes and daily specials but those things are fairly minor! 

Here's how it "went down".  J and I have been praying about a business opportunity for a couple years.  We've looked at different business from gun shops to archery shops to bakeries to cafes to who knows what else.  On Friday the 18th, less than 2 weeks ago we were at a basketball game here in Agra (we like to go to games for the heck of it even though we have no kids) and the guy that owns the cafe here in town sat in front of us.  I've joked with J about just buying it so kinda serious kinda jokingly I said, "Hey James you ready to sell me your cafe."  He said, "Yes, come see me next week."  So we prayed about it over the weekend , I went and saw him Tuesday and bought his cafe!  Quick fast and in a hurry but everything has fallen into place perfectly and I'm so excited!!!!!  I have visited with the owner a few times and we talked about how things work and then this morning I went in and cooked for a couple hours to get the hang of things.  It was great!  I have never cooked in a restaurant setting but I'm praying it will be a smooth transition! 

I have several family members and friends who think I'm crazy and a few who are ready to murder me because I'm leaving my current job and they love me so much there (that is not a sarcastic remark).  But I don't care, I'M EXCITED!!!!!!!!!  I even did a happy dance a couple times!!!!!!!!!!!!  

I'll post pics and all the other exciting things after I own it!  (only a few weeks away!)

    After reading about the quantity cooking you did at your church dinner, I don't think you'll have any trouble adjusting. I'm so happy for you!!! (And I fully expect to see ya on a future episode of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives!) :) Merry Christmas early!
