I've seen the occasional FB post. If she doesn't show up here...yes, very busy! Never mind, I see she's logged on now!

Hi, um, yeah, I've been busy... and it's nice to have been missed.

I pop on every few days or so and read a thread or two.
I'm coming off of peak season, so maybe I'll be around more, but maybe not...
I am officially divorced now (as of April 27th) and still homeschooling (well, public school at home) the ds7x2. Until recently exdh only took the kids occasionally, but now I'm hoping to have a break more often.
For the past year I mostly was just keeping my head above water, and I could never have done it without amazing friends and my sister and bil. Now I feel like I'm starting to regain my equilibrium, get my energy back, get back on top of things. I had helper girls this summer through that government program that trains kids, so my windows are washed and my fence painted. As far as schooling, we never quite finished first grade last year, but now we're up and running and on track to finish first and plow through second.
In the end, I am super blessed. I am healthier and happier than I've been in years. I came through the divorce in just under a year with my life and business intact. I've joined the community band, starting wearing mascara, and have lost 30 pounds. God has really looked after me!

Good to hear from you and that the biz is going well!
Most women I know have said that they've lost like 210 lbs in a divorce - their weight loss plus their ex's body weight. Lol!
Hope this year goes even better for you!

Congratulations on keeping the business and finding a way to do it and the home schooling at the same time. No wonder we don't hear from you often!

Heard that about one of my competitors, he was sleeping around with the guests... both male and female. I wonder if that helped his rank at TA

i wouldn't.
next thing you know, they'll be asking for a discount.
or a different room (yours)
but ... if they want to return as non guests and take you out, off you go.

yellowsocks, you must be doing something really right if you look appealing enough for a guest to ask you out ... while you're in the trenches, no less!
I am sure i looked a fright with hair in signature pebbles flintstone style, apron, carrying armfuls of linens or whatever.
i remember stopping people heading up the stairs as i was coming down. they were trying to push past me to go up and take a look at the view out the cupola. they weren't registered guests and all but pushed me aside. long story short, they assumed i was 'housekeeping' and were rude as all get out. i stood my ground and sweetly told them 'guests only' they were so miffed! left muttering about complaining to the innkeeper. if they'd been nice, and asked, i would've invited them back later for an escorted tour.
later in the day, they saw me out front looking more 'spiffed up', i introduced myself as the innkeeper and pretended not to recognize them. they were hiding their surprise and acting nice as could be. then a toilet backed up and i had to go back to the trenches. poof! cinderella

Yes... really. And I worked through the ethics and he's taken me out to two of the very best restaurants in the area. And they were not a dates, just "two chums having dinner together." (At least, that's his take on it.)
As far as more than dinner, um, no. I'm not the kind of innkeeper that Camberly and EAB are describing!

Nope, didn't think you were 'that kind of innkeeper!' Always wondered how that sort of thing would play out. How to keep the biz separate from the fun.
