Just kidding! (ahahahahahaha!)
As mentioned in a previous blog, we are moving to Vancouver Washington! But, new developments have been made since that blog! We are moving to Washington to start our own business. And my brother in law, John has really helped us make that a reality.
Our end goal is to start a restaurant in Washington, but to start out, you gotta go small. We got a food truck! We have a solid food concept, many years of experience in short order cooking, but this is a whole new area for us. Small business owners!!!! We have the will to succeed, and since we are starting from the bottom, it will take us a while to build up to owning an actual building to start the restaurant. We estimate at least 5 years before we can even start looking at opening up a place.
But, with the food truck, we can start immediately, play with our food, find things that work and things that don't, get feed back from customers, and refine our recipes. This is a very exciting time for us, as well as sad.
Almost all of our immediate family is here in Bakersfield, as well as many friends. We are sad to leave them behind, but think that this move is necessary for us to reach our dreams and better our family. We are not going to stagnate any where else! We refuse to just meander through life, to become compliant with mediocrity. We want to one day be famous.
So, now, we are just in the process of getting out of the house we are in right now. I have finished painting our bathroom, and soon we will start painting Atreyu's room, although I think my paint job on it looks professional, our landlords want to a more neutral color. After that, it's just putting things in boxes and then cleaning. our last day in Bakersfield is April 12, but it will take about 2 days to get to Washington, since moving with a toddler is not easy, we will be stopping halfway through our drive to stay the night. Hopefully Atreyu sleeps better this time around in our hotel room. (Last time, i spent almost all night walking up and down the hallways trying to rock him to sleep.)
Any who.... We cannot wait to go to Washington and live with Amberly, john, and Daphne. I think we are going to have a lot of fun pranking them :D
