Sometimes life throws you a curveball. Sometimes it’s a curve ball thrown from left field that hit you smack dab in the middle of your forehead. 6 weeks ago, the landlord for my husband’s business stopped by and said “Hey! We’re tearing down your office at the end of June in order to build a new plaza. You need to find a new place to operate your business.”
Talk about giving us a panic attack. 6 months is not a lot of time to find a commercial property, build it out so that it will work for your business, and move all your stuff. So, we got right to work, and amazingly found a new property with a fantastic landlord just down the street from his current office. They started construction the day after we signed the lease, and this past weekend, we moved in. It was 3 days of long, hard labor, mostly for my husband and father-in-law, but holy cow, I.am.spent. It was all I could do to peel myself off the couch yesterday to switch the laundry.
Thankfully, I had thought ahead and threw some chicken in the crockpot before we left in the morning. When we got home, all I did was shred the chicken and melt the cheese on the buns. And frankly, I didn’t have the energy to do anything more than that. The chicken came out delicious, and would not only be perfect for sandwiches, but great on top of pizza, baked potatoes, nachos or to use in dips.
