Tonight, like most every Friday night, Corey and I went out on a date. It's always nice to be in his company. We went by the cheesecake factory. We tried to call and make a reservation, but they don't do reservations. Ok, fine. When we got there it looked super busy as it usually does when we drive by and leave. This time we parked and went in to ask the wait time... 90 minutes!! You guys are all crazy! Corey and I don't do 90 minute waits, but the place was packed, so I guess everyone else does? Crazy, who are all you people?!? We thought it was a bit insane. We'll go back to the India House, thank you. We've never had a wait there, plus it's a quiet restaurant. We're not up with these trendy places. Anyway, as we walked back to the car to go somewhere else, he told me a little bit about his week and work and what the latest is. He said that he's turned a corner. In 2014 we came across an article that compared entrepreneurs and the risks they take to a man riding a lion. We liked the analogy and felt it was accurate. When the stakes are high, we usually think back to the riding a lion comparison. Well, Corey told me tonight that he is happy to say he is no longer riding the lion!
ship stuck in the Pacific doldrums metaphor, and now the lobster in the tank at the seafood restaurant. The chances for survival do not look good... the end is near. If Corey gets eaten by a metaphorical lion, where does that leave us, metaphorically speaking? I feel like a single mom sometimes, I hope I don't start to feel like a widow, I'm not ready to be a widow yet. So, as has been the story for us for the past several years, the business is hanging by a thread. Thoughts and prayers are appreciated. I turned to dessert for a little bit of stress relief tonight - I bought these earlier today to be our Sunday family dessert. We sampled these early (these are soooo good!) Now I don't need to go to Lehi to Aubergine, these are just at Smiths and hit the chocolate craving spot.
