Today, my father decided to go back to work.
Well, not today, exactly, but in a few weeks. September 25th, to be exact. A Friday. Usually the busiest day of the week for him. He's excited. And I'm excited too. Cause it's been forever since I had a BIMs Pizza. And I know he feels the same way.
His hip is doing much better, and he's up and about now. He's able to walk around stores, up and down stairs, and does a pretty nice two-step. His pinkie and ring finger still aren't moving that well, but he's hoping with time, they'll give him more mobility with the physical therapy. He's in good spirits, and I can understand why. Today, he said to me, "I feel like myself again," before adding, "I don't quite know who I felt like before."
This means we've got a lot to do in the next few weeks. We're reaching out to local newspapers and television stations for advertising, talking to everyone we can to see if they can get the word out, and most importantly, we've got to bring the store up to snuff. It's been closed now for over two months, meaning we've got a wee bit of cleaning to do.
Not to mention that I've got to work on the website.
This all comes at a time where I'm working on my own website, finishing up a couple video jobs, and of course, I'm still in the process of moving out of my own place in Brooklyn.
Things I'm looking forward to during this very hectic period:
1) Flogging Molly concert in LA
2) New Pearl Jam album
3) The release of "Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2" for Xbox360
4) New Shadows Fall album
5) Rock Band: Beatles
I was also going to attach a list of things I'm NOT looking forward to during this very hectic period, but I decided not to. Why dwell on the negative?
