It's official

We have a sign for the building!

We won't talk about PEPSI's extremely lame excuses for not getting out sign-on-a-post changed. Keith talked to Coke, thinking that would light a fire under PEPSI, but it looks like we're at their mercy and it will be 2-3 weeks before the old Jilinda's sign on the pole comes down. Rats!

But the menu is out (oh, by the way, here's the link to the restaurant's site that I made by myself in my big girl panties) and the new name is on the building. Our decorating budget was swallowed by payroll and other imminent bills, so we're working on changing the decor in small steps.

We have some horse tack to hang up, the "x" brand will go somewhere, my grandma is making curtains for us, I need to order some enlargements of the ranch pics so we have something to put on the walls. I was at a point where I was really frustrated at our inability to make all of the drastic changes I envisioned. But, you know what, mental health is a prized possession and I'm not about to give mine up to a restaurant.

Oh yeah, and happy new year.
