As you know, I'm running the Richmond Marathon in November (have you donated to Henrico Humane yet?), but there's something else too. On July 16, 2012 I will be...
OPENING A KENNEL!!!!
That's right! Impawsible Pups is expanding this summer and will be offering day care, boarding, and grooming, as well as cat boarding. I could not be more excited!
Things have happened both extremely fast and painfully slow. There were times when I thought my head would explode just waiting for an answer, and there were times when I felt panicked because I felt like there just wasn't enough time left. Now I'm looking in the future and I realize that there are only three weeks before I'm in the building and only five weeks before we officially open. Eek!!! Again, thank God for running, because I think the stress would kill me otherwise!
There are some big plans for our opening, and a Grand Opening is planned for August 17th & 18th (more on that soon). My head is spinning with all that needs to be done, but I'm lucky because I have a fantastic support group.
I also know that running a marathon and opening a kennel in the same year is going to be difficult. My thought is go big or go home. Again, I have an awesome and understand support system, and I have no doubts that I'll be able to make this work.
In the mean time, I'll be busy planning, working, scrubbing, and training. Wish me luck!
