These past two weeks have been a bit on the insane side of things. We had open house at our branch for work last Tuesday and again at our Edenton branch 1 1/2 hours away on Wednesday. So, that meant that I spent a good deal of Monday, and even some of the previous week, trying to prepare for all of it. My boss flew to New York (upstate) to pick up a motorcycle that belongs to the company. But it wasn't just any motorcycle. It was personally created for Airgas by Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. of Orange County Choppers (OCC). Tuesday we had a number of vendors here to sell their products (3M, Bosch, Metabo and others). We were giving out free hot dogs, chips, and drinks. The Hypertherm Rep even fired up a plasma cutter and let me give it a try! My boss asked me to come in at 6 a.m. Wednesday to drive the six-figure ( I don't know the exact amount but I'm told it is between $100,000 and $250,000) motor bike to Edenton, NC, help out while I was there, then drive the bike back to Greenville that afternoon. Then on Thursday, I had to drive the bike to Greensboro to meet someone who was taking it up to one of our stores in Kentucky. Friday we had full gas inventory. This week I have been trying to play catch-up from last week, plus it is month-end close out.
On top of all of this, we have had some chicks hatch, and Mike called me this morning to say that Prissy was having her third litter of kittens (and she's not even 2 years old yet). She's getting fixed soon. You better believe I'm taking a much needed break this weekend. Mike and I will be heading out to my parents Friday morning for the weekend. I have pics, but they will have to wait till later.
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter holiday!
