Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

So this morning I went to church, and, well, it was churchy.  The pastor talked mostly about stuff I didn’t understand, as usual.  I wish he’d say things I understood.  It’s like…  walking into a class halfway through the semester and being utterly lost.

I mean, he talks about nice things.   You know, love and brotherhood and all that stuff.  But I don’t see what that has to do with God.  He says God loves us, but…  does he?  I haven’t seen any proof of that.  Or even that he exists…  I don’t know…  Maybe he does?  I hope he does.  But…  my life’s been a mess…  it turned out okay so maybe that’s good, but… still a mess.

I talked to Sabby today about the business.  I told her I’m worried about how dependent we’re becoming on cat-girl to drive sales, and that I think we need to either go all in and make what she’s doing an official part of our strategy – or stop doing it entirely.  We can’t have significant chunks of our business dependent on what she wears any particular day – or even if she shows up.

Sabby agreed, and we’ll talk about what direction we want to take the shop.  I’m honestly not too upset with the idea of going more towards being a cookie “maid cafe”, but..  we have to actually plan it out and not just let cat-girl take over.

She’s doing great for us, don’t get me wrong – she really, really drives a lot of business – but we’re the owners, she’s not!!!

Running a business is difficult!!!

Sabby does a good job – I mean, she came up with the menu pretty much by herself, she does a lot of the baking (the baker even taught her a few tricks), and she’s pretty good at keeping up with HR.  But, truth be told, I think she just wants to make cookies, and would rather leave the business decisions to other people.

Like.. me, I guess.

She says I have a good head for it.

I just wish I could be there more often.

Other than that, it was a nice day.  Dave grilled!!!  Did I ever tell you I love it when he grills?  He’s so good at it!!!

Okay!!!  Gotta walk Marie and go to bed!

Love you all!!! ❤
