Happy Day

Hang on to your hats, girls and boys. I've got some big news.

We sold the salon!!!!!

It's basically a miracle. After all that time looking for an exit strategy, someone simply showed up at the door and asked to buy it. My sister and I agreed, and we'll be done on the 15th of this month.

 I quit fighting for what I thought was right for the business a long time ago. What I wanted more than anything else was to maintain a relationship with my sister. The money, the disagreements over how to run things, the orange everything--none of it mattered as much as remaining on good--okay, decent--terms with my sister.

I wish things had been different, but they weren't. Given the realities of life, we could not have hoped for a better outcome. 

Here's a great big thank you to the Universe, for its infinite wisdom, for its mercy, for its love.

Change is afoot, folks. Can't wait to see what happens next.

So great that you will be getting out of that tangerine nightmare, freeing you up for more time with your new lover.
