Just got in from picking up the wifey at the Charlotte airport from her 2 1/2 week 'working' trip in our boutique selling as much merchandise as possible and it looks like she brought back Barely enough to cover 3 months of bills and we're hoping to make enough between now and December to cover the December-January bills while we're in Mexico again :-\

But for right now, I am just Relieved that we can survive another few months :o

Is that kind of what you were hoping for out of the trip?

That was the Bare Minimum I was hoping for..  :-\
I was hoping to cover at least 4 months worth of bills from the profits cause we haven't made Jack-Sh*t here in the last few weeks :-[

It'll do though (hopefully)..

We're just gonna have to get used to canned soup and crackers for a while :P

Honestly, this should be ok if we manage it right and get out there to meet new customers between now and then :)

On the plus side I believe Mexico recently decriminalized narcotics for personal use. Maybe you could take to a little "farming". ;)

Well, this caught me off guard.. :speechless:

My brother (KVR), who recently moved back from Austin, TX., will be working for me in our tax office this year! :o
He's had trouble finding work since moving back here a couple months ago as a well payed I.T. Guru and we're in the process of setting up a branch of our business in another location this year but I would have to maintain the computers in both locations but since he's available, he can handle any and all computer issues in my office while I work in the satellite location as well as doing taxes!

He'll be starting Tuesday for tax training..

This could be a win-win for Both of us :o

Wow, if even people with marketable skills like IT are having problems finding a job, no wonder I'm working at Walmart.
