All done!

Yay! Cleaned our first house today, and it looks amazing. My mom and I do good work. Very proud. Little tired, but very proud.

We won the first bid!

Yay! So we won the lockout, the trashout, and the lawn for the house! Very exciting! Getting ready to head over to start the cleaning process. Then Friday we have to go mow the US1 house again. :) I'm really liking this. And am very very grateful for Cecil helping us out so much with this.

6/18/09 Update:

I went to the 6 story building today to get our county license, which should be ready for pick up in like 40 minutes. Apparently the woman was friends with my mother, and the second I walked in goes "are you Lisa's daughter?" Anyway, that's done for now until I have to pick it up and pay for it. I've got a bit of a headache and upset stomach at the moment. Not sure what's going on. Today's been a little stressful, but I'm really hoping it will get better soon. I'm not looking forward to tonight, or working at Fairvilla anymore in general. I'll be very glad once we get this company really going. Also, Pastor John called me while I was getting the licensing done. I need to call him back. He was responding to the e-mail I'd sent a week or so ago about whether or not the church was hiring. Hopefully this could be potentially good news, even if only something part-time that way we wouldn't have to completely rely on the mowing for full income. Oh, and one of my classes ends next week already, and then the other next month. I'll be so glad when this semester is over.

Mission Accomplished:

So as of tomorrow we should have a business. :) Now to get some more clients. Hopefully as of next week it will be up and running. We've got some fliers, and we talked to Robert, David's brother who may help me out a little bit with some of the mowing. :) Very excited. A little scared, but mostly excited.

Get the show on the road:

So we're getting the ball rolling. Tuesday we'll be trying to get our business license, and we've got e-mail, phone, and setting up a bank account, and already have software rolling for billing and such. Very excited. So we'll see how it goes. Still gonna be a few weeks I'm guessing, but it's a step in the right direction. The company is called "Poor Roosters" lol. Get it? :)

Poosible company?

We're considering opening a lawn mowing company. Anyone need their lawn done? Or know of any companies that need theirs done?

Slap in the face:

So when I was at the Sheriff's office last Tuesday I specifically asked the woman if there were other people still competing for the job. She specifically said in front of both David and I that I was their first choice, that there were no others, and that the job was mine once I passed the background and polygraph. Given that I have absolutely nothing in my background, it should've been a breeze. I get a call on the way to work Monday saying that they have to cancel my polygraph (that was scheduled for 4:30pm yesterday) and that they decided to give the position to another candidate, and that it wasn't a problem with me, just someone else completely background first. That's funny, since she said there wasn't anyone else. Talk about a huge slap in the face. I cried the whole way to work Monday. It's complete bullshit. I'm so stressed out.
