It's Going to Be a HUGE Year

I know I've been quiet around these parts lately, but it's because I have news...big news.  News I had to keep utterly secret until everything was confirmed.

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...


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!
