The sun is coming down on the summer
The other day, my school teacher sister said to me, " Well, I'm just about ready to get back to work". Back to work, is she insane??? Well, maybe but she has been off work for almost 2 months now so I guess I can understand how she might be a bit bored. Not being a school teacher I, like most people only get a few weeks off at a time (if that) and therefore don't have the problem of getting bored on vacation. However, over the summer I get to really enjoy a much slower pace in my work for about 6 or 7 weeks after the end of June and boy do I love it. I get most weekends off and I take a few 2 or 3 day breaks to get away with my family, it's awesome. Now that mid August has arrived my life of work leisure is promptly coming to an end. We are now into the last few weeks of the summer and for us, this is a pretty busy time. While our school is well over half full already, the other half of the people will register in the next few weeks. That's a lot of registering to do in a short amount of time. As well, we are now receiving inventory like crazy to accommodate the rush of new instrument sales that accompany the start of the school year. Add to that, we are finishing up all of the maintenance on our store and school. All of that and we are still trying to take in the last few weeks of incredible weather. If it sounds like I'm complaining I apologize because nobody knows better then I how lucky we all are to be in the music biz and to be making a good living doing it. It's been an awesome summer and it looks like it will be a great fall, weather wise and in business. Enjoy the last bit of summer!
