to answer a couple of questions....

Good morning.
Our mild temps have left, it snowed yesterday, just enough to coat the ground, and it's back in the 20's.
Glad it waited until after we got our new fridge delivered.  ;-)
It was a pretty mundane day yesterday with us doing our usual Monday running around. back home, I got the new fridge stocked back up and the mo-ho fridge turned off. I like the new fridge. We seem to have most of the extra space in the freezer, which is good since we stock up on things when they're on sale.
The ice cube are larger too. Don't melt as fast in our drinks.  :-)
To answer a couple of comments from previous posts.....
Garret said in my post about me having customers on Christmas Eve and Craig none, "So people don't like Craig as much as you?"
It's not that Garret,  :-) It's mainly because I have a much larger clientele than Craig. I'm very good at multitasking, so I may have anywhere from 1 yo 4 customers going at a time, which means I may have a customer under the dryer drying, one with color processing while I'm cutting another. Craig will only work on one customer at a time. He's not good under pressure.  :-) I do usually at least twice the number of customers during the day than him. And yes, that means I bring in twice the money he does. But that's okay, he does all the bookkeeping. I think I'm still ahead on that one.  :-)
Arch guy commented, "so who runs the Salon when neither of you are there?"
No one needs to 'run' the Salon. Our staff is a group of independent stylists. Which means each stylist is a separate business. They each rent a station from us, the owners. We are not their bosses, just landlords. They each have a key to the salon. They set their own hours, prices, and have their own phone extension, and make they're own appointments. They use their own products and supplies. Their customers pay them for their services and the stylists are responsible for their own taxes and such. We basically have 7 individual businesses sharing common areas to make it more profitable for each person. Their rent includes common area supplies such as magazines, coffee, and such. It has worked well for 14 years now. Each stylist knows what to do to 'open' and 'close' the Salon.
Okay, I hope that clarifies a couple of things.  :-) If you have more questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them.
Now, it's time for another work week. Not sure if it'll be busy or not. Can never tell about the week between Christmas and New Years. Right now, it's looking so-so. But that's okay, I have year end inventory to do.  :-\
