Hello Thursday ~

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters...

Another week has flown by..way fast.  Already Thursday and the 
warm up we were having has suddenly disappeared.  Cold days are
 back and I think I am getting the flu again.  Not sure if it is, 
but I have the symptoms.  Not happy about that.

Yesterday we had to throw a young girl out of our hotel.  Nothing against
young people, but many have an attitude and just don't seem to know
right from wrong.  Truth is I liked her, she paid on time, but she
was more work than we needed at Almost Home.

  Within an hour of us telling her she has to pack and leave,
 I get a phone call from one of the tenants on the waiting list.  Needless
to say, I have already rented the room.  The tenant has paid upfront for
2 weeks even though the first week he will not even be here. 

As he said to me on the phone, "I'm coming all the
 way from Arizona to work in Branson like I do every year
and I was told to stay at Almost Home."  I love the
 fact that our hotel has a great reputation.

Most of the long term stay hotels advertise a $99 move in special. 
This special runs all year long.  I am happy to say that at Almost Home
we have never had to do this and we still stay full.  I did try the $99
move in special, but before the day was over I took it away because
 the clientele it brought was not the one we want at Almost Home.

Thursday is looking good.  Chilly start of the morning but already
warmed up with my cafe and chasing Sniff around.  Arvid still sound
 asleep.  Quiet, peaceful.  Mornings are my favorite time of the day.

Hello Thursday.  You sure got here fast.

There comes a time when the world gets quiet 
and the only thing left is your own heart...
