Wow! Friends, I’ve had such a morning I’m not even sure where to start.  I think to start with I’ll relist my items I’m grateful for today.  Some of these items have turned out to be almost ironic since I posted them this morning.

1. a beautiful foggy morning
2. finally getting some restful sleep after tossing and turning a lot
3. the fact that I work for great people
4. my day off
5.finished projects

So yesterday I told my daughter that today I am taking my day off (see #4) seriously and staying home all day.  And then I told her that since I’ve said that, someone will call and want me to do something.  Yep!  Sure enough.  My great boss I work for (see #3) texted and asked if I could stop out at work about 10.   Well sure.

When I got to the cafe the waitress was putting a sign on the door that said closed till 11 for repairs and locking the door.  Holy cow said the little voice in my head, this is something big.

I never dreamed.  The waitress and I joked that they were going to fire us all.  The boss assured us that wasn’t the case.

Well, in a way it turned out to be true.  The bosses got an offer they can’t refuse and sold the business.  They’ll be locking the door for good on November 3.  

I started work at that cafe many years ago as a part time job “just so I can get the kids’ dentist bill paid off“.  Well that was almost 12 years ago.  On and off, I’ve invested nine years of my life in that place and now that chapter is over.

I’m shocked and yet I’m not surprised.  I have no idea where I’m going from here.  I have SO many opportunities in front of me that I’m mind boggled.

I went and had lunch with my parents, just to have a sounding board, because the dog just wasn’t giving me much feedback.
