of business and home

i've been horrible about keeping up with my blog lately. september will do that to me. it has just been so busy around here. (not that i'm complaining...it's a great thing!) september was my biggest month in history. YEAH!! and october is looking to be the same. after all my hard work, it's great to see that so many people are enjoying my products. it's a great time, but also challenging, as all periods of growth seem to be. it's a balancing act....needing to hire more people, while being able to find the money to pay them. so even though more money is coming in, it seems that just as much is going out. i think next year will be easier because i will have a better idea of what's coming. (i got quickbooks this year so all my tracking is going to be much easier to do.) i can just go back to this year's information and be able to predict what should be happening the same time next year.

on a personal note: i think we may have found our house! once i explain it, you may have the urge to call me crazy....as the house has been in front of our face the entire time. you see, our realtor is one of my good friend's husband. they too, are selling their house. (which i have always admired) they have subtly, and not so subtly, hinted at us buying their house. we always just kind of blew it off because of the "weirdness" involved in buying a friend's home. any changes you make are kind of personal and could potentially be insulting to the previous owners (especially since they're friends). the hubby was more opposed to buying their house than i was. i would occasionally bring it up and suggest that we should take a walk through it. he always refused. so, for the past month or so, we've been looking elsewhere. then the other night i mentioned it again. there was no argument involved. he just said "ok". like it was a new option we hadn't discussed before. so, very long story short. we went through it and he was pleasantly surprised. he really liked it. tonight we're taking my parents through it to check it out and make sure we're not missing anything. (like the windows last time!) if everything looks good, i would assume we're going to make an offer in the next couple days! i'm very excited at the possibility! it has a very roomy kitchen which is a change from what we have now. and it has a big, dry basement which i could use to spread my business out! the idea of having a bigger office just gets me so excited. we are so cramped where we are right now.

so, call me crazy. (but happy!)
