Had a good talk with Hubby last night.   We've been going full on with our heads down since we decided to sell our house and buy this business.  That was last May.

So with the kitchen finished and the business picking up, I asked him how he is doing. Understand I am here with you all, but I'm in an office in the business district.  He's running the house and finances of the Inn.  

He said he loves it.  Loves the house, the work, the business, the people.   I'm so pleased.

This was a big leap for us and it looks like it will work out.  

I realize we haven't lived through high season yet, but I am feeling really good about it.   Fingers remain crossed, but optimistically.

I want to thank everyone here for the suggestions and support!!!!!

Congratulations! So glad things are working out for you and that your hubbie loves the job. Just remember not to sweat the small stuff and to follow the KISS method and all else will pass....yes

I really love your attitude.  At one year many small busines people are ready to throw in the towel for one reason or another.  I've enjoyed your tales over the past year that have charted your progress, and am very excited for both of you as you start your first full "high" season.  All the indicators predict you'll do well, and it sounds like you'll have fun doing it.

Thanks.  I'm exhausted from moving, but in a great mood now that the kitchen is done!   Parties are planned. We are hosting an open house at the end of April (you're all invited!) and we are hosting the Innkeepers' Association lunch meeting in May.  That should be interested as they all loved the PO.  Hope they like our improvements!

I'm so glad it's the right fit for both of you!

Why don't you encourage him to create an account here on the forum so we can also give him some support, especially in the crazy busy season? We'd love to have Mr Beachy join us!

That's great! You don't want to have a Bates motel thing going on. When money is coming in it makes everything a little brighter.

It is great that he loves it. THAT will help everyone. Problems happen when one of the "horses in harness" drags his feet or changes into a mule and just stops mid-stride. Had a mule yesterday - because I just went ahead and did what was needed when the MULE said no. Mule was mollified when saw the completed project. (replaced a hose hook-up that a lawn mower had cut off because daughter needs it for the power washer. Now it will never get the mower as it is about 4 feet off the ground and like the water thingy they have out at the stable.)

 it's always good to head into the season with optimism. he's used to working h.a.r.d. (you are too) and it's YOUR business this time. that can make a lot of difference!

Happy that it is going well for you! 

Don't fret the high season, once it is over you have time to lick your wounds, have a little fun and then feel refreshed to start the process over again.

This is what I keep telling myself right now.  We are in the middle of a peak season (we have spring & fall).  The summer slump will hit soon enough, grin and bare it!  Looking forward to the BEACH!

He has had some very tough jobs in the past.    Compared to managing a Drug and Sundries store (like CVS) when the managers were expected to work 7 days a week from Halloween through Valenties Day.....this is nothin'.   (At least that is what we hope.)

Don't get me wrong. The tough part is because it is more personal, people are sleeping in your beds. It is rewarding and fun too!

Tell him from me he is a trooper!  yes

Tell him from my DH to "not be surprised at the annual innkeeper meltdown, or semi-annual as we tend to call it round here."  Sometimes you need to just get it off your chest, and can't when you have guests there every day for months on end, so that is okay. When it happens, maybe you can laugh together remembering this comment,

"Innkeeping ain't for wimps!" is my story and I'm stickin' to it. cool HAVE FUN!
