June Has Arrived
But you sure couldn’t tell by the weather. Since we have been here we have yet to put our heater or any of our winter clothes away. Yesterday it only reached 55 barely and with the rain constantly it stays cold and unfortunately it is the same forecasted for today and these are our days off.
Our first busy weekend was Memorial Weekend and it flew by, we so love it when it is busy. It wasn’t as busy as they have been saying it would be but sales were up from last year. We think there is a difference between what some people consider busy and also being chaotic makes it seem as if it is busy when it really is not. Anyway it was nice to have customers and not just looking for something to keep us busy. Suppose to go back to not so busy for the next few weeks but then Father’s Day Weekend kicks off the busyness for the rest of June, July and August and when we are finally open 7 days a week and we may just get some hours. We both have Wednesday and Thursday’s off and unfortunately I also have Monday’s and Tuesday’s off since the restaurant is only open on the weekends right now, thank goodness Jerry is able to work in maintenance on those days.
We have both been feeling sick and we think part of it is a cold and another part is allergies but we also feel some of it may be due to the mold and we are trying to get it all under control but the weather is not cooperating. We were able to finally get all the supplies we need to take care of the issues but now we are waiting for a dry day when we can tear apart the upper area and take care of it all. Even with our dehumidifier working 24/7 we still have a lot of moisture in the rig and it’s hard to stay on top of it all and every time we think we may have all the leaks finally taken care of we find more. Oh well we are done sweating the small stuff and right now all we can do is laugh!
We had our first whole Maine Lobstah’s and unfortunately we were unaware that they sold females. Our first two were males and they were yummy but then we cracked into the females without knowing there was a difference and the eggs are bright red and it sort of looked like those wax lips from years ago. Needless to say we were grossed out and now decided we will fill ourselves up with Lobstah dishes or as we found out we can order “Lazy Man Lobstah” which means they take care of all the cracking and we can just enjoy the rich tasting flavor of the meat. So far we have had Lobstah Pizza which was great, Lobstah Omelet which was also fabulous and our next taste will be the Lobstah Roll.
On our time off we have taken bike rides to the beach and the local towns but not much more than that and we are hoping to begin touring the area within a few weeks once we get caught up on our finances which has been a bit difficult until we start getting more hours.
We are definitely struggling, not just our finances but our attitudes are pretty bad lately and we are working hard on them so the tudes do not take over and we take that plunge into the dark hole of life. Thank goodness we have each other and we are helping one another overcome this situation we have put ourselves into and attempting to come out the other side very soon without losing ourselves completely. We definitely still have our sense of humors and continue to laugh at ourselves and the situations that continue to come into our lives. We also have very strong wills that will keep us afloat during all these times but just once we would really like if the light at the end of the tunnel was a bit closer and brighter then it seems to be at this moment. We know we will make it through this time again as we have so many times in our lives but this time we hope will be the one time that when it is all said and done that we finally reach a stage in our lives that we can look back and say it was all worth the journey!
