Hello and Happy New Year....a few days late :) When I was in school and when I my sons were young and in school, September was the start of the new year. Now that my sons are grown, we are all out of school, January 1 is the start of the new year. It comes as a great time for me. I have had some down time to recuperate from the season , I have had enough weekend business to remind me that I do have a job, and after having a full house for the New Years weekend it reminds why I love being an innkeeper!The enthusiasm is back and I start walking through the house and outside making a list of what needs to be done, what should be done, and what I would like to have done. And hopefully, I can get to the majority of that list before the season starts!
Having a small B&B is very similar to maintaining a home - and of course it is my home! You have to constantly keep up with the maintenance just like you have to keep up with the maintenance of your home. If you let things go, I found out that instead of remaining the same, they tend to get worse! So, I need that walk through in January to remind me to start making my lists!
So - just so you understand the true meaning of this post......it's to put off starting that list!
Hope to see you soon!
