Cry or Reboot

At 5:23 a.m. this morning the store manager quit via text. The store manager who was scheduled to make the product and be the front person until the second person got there at 10:00. I cannot leave my law office to rescue the store. No dice no deal not ever. However, this should only ever be an issue if the store had an emergency and (1) my husband is out of town, and (2) the manager isn't available. hahahahahaha. Here we are. I am overwhelmed and, for a blogger, almost speechless, regarding the people who stepped up to help out today, the people who not only answered our call for help, but who stepped up and anticipated where we would be needing help and offered it willingly. My husband coordinated the emergency store schedule from China, and I went in immediately after work with supplies and to do paperwork. We are taking our life in 15 minute increments. I left the store becuase I had to do the uniform and towel laundry ready for 5 a.m. tomorrow morning. As I sat down to have some cereal the phone rang. The entire point of sale system was down. There were really only two options. Cry or reboot. I chose reboot.


  1. I don't even know what to say except that my heart goes out to you and that there is someone still awake out there who read your post and is sending positive thoughts and hope your way.

  2. It sounds like a clusterf*ck of a day! I am so glad that people helped out and that you were able to keep it all together -- from all corners of the world! And...I hope you get a lovely vacation with lots and lots of sleep (and uninterrupted cereal) ASAP. You deserve it.
