not to be confused by, but located within, The Holy Moly at 218 Third Street
Here's a look at our latest menu, after having gone through several upgrades to the operating system. The Holy Moly Drug Store has come a long way from selling only ice cream, coffee, and soda!
It seems that I am always worrying about, or at least wondering about, what people think of me. Right now, as I write, I am wondering how my complaining will come across, and I am worried about that. I am hoping that people don't think that Adrian and I are doing this (fast-food business) for the money. We have quite a few days where money is going out (in buying bananas and tons of other groceries at Walmart, paying sales tax, and setting up worker's compensation insurance for future employees) faster than it is coming in.
My husband and I are doing this together, and we both work very hard, standing for hours after hours in the shop, cooking, planning, problem solving, and waiting for the hand-full of customers who might come in to The Holy Moly Drug Store. We take advantage of quiet moments in the shop by posting pictures online and trying to advertise via social media, which is the only kind of advertising we can afford. Adrian plays a little bit of music on The World's Smallest Stage, when the time is right. That makes me happy!
I'm exhausted, I'm feeling cranky, and I have a sore foot now, as I confess all of this. The good news is that diabetes hasn't taken away the pain sensation in my feet. The bad news is that I spend most of my days standing and working on a concrete floor in worn out shoes from Walmart. It's time to replace the shoes, I know, but it's not quite time to replace myself in the shop. I pray that time comes quickly!
