Weekend Warriors?

How did your weekend go? Peaceful, busy, lazy? I finally finished texturing the walls in the kitchen. I did such a good job...I kinda screwed myself. LOL. Now I've been nominated to do the rest of the building. *sigh* I guess I'll try to work on the pantry today. The laundry room will be next. We can't finish one of the walls in the kitchen with the beadboard because we realized the 3rd floor window is leaking down the back wall.

And more progress...I found the images I want to use as our restaurant logo.

I talked with the talented artist and he's going to replace the pig with the cowboy. I can put the restaurant name on the wooden board. Hubby hasn't been home to approve it but says he trusts me. Even our teen said he would be ok with wearing it as a uniform shirt. And that's gold coming from that kid.

And...as of today...we are legal, girls!! I filed the corporation papers and trademark this morning. It's a done deal. As soon as I receive the certification in the mail I'll file for a federal employer id number. Then the state tax commission is next for a resale certificate.

I didn't get any writing done this weekend...I took a break to read a western historical. I'm halfway finished and not real excited about reading more. *sigh* Makes me regret not working on my own. But today I need to shave off another two pages from my synopsis for my contemporary category romance. My OKRWA weekend retreat is coming up in September and I have to submit my chapter, synopsis, and query letter to the guest speaker. She's a reader for an agent and she'll work with each one of the members attending the workshop.

Hope everyone has a productive day with whatever you're working on!!

Terri ~ Thank you! I feel a bit overwhelmed and really excited at the prospects. But I have faith in what we can do...hopefully I won't forget that when things get rough;)

Betty ~ You bet! You guys are always welcome and I'd love to have the company!! We plan on applying for a beer and wine license as soon as the requirements are met for the ABLE commission.

I haven't heard you sound this excited in a long time. Glad everything is rolling along.

I'm finally back to working on HOLLYWOOD SWINGING, and I posted Ch. 13 on our group. Already started Ch. 14 and will be going out somewhere to work on that today.

Chicki ~ I need to catch up with you on crits, girl!! I haven't forgotten the group;) I am really excited about everything right now. Ask me again ina couple of weeks when I'm worn slap-out and exhausted. LOL.

Diane ~ Thanks so much for coming by!! I'm just hoping my writing doesn't fall to the back. It's so easy to put it aside when I've got so much to do.

Wow! You've been busy! Congrats on becoming offically offical! That's got to be a great feeling! I wish I lived closer so I could come and see the real thing.

Good luck with everything!
