October always means

great things happening to me.

I don't know what it is about October. I don't even like Halloween. But every October for years now something awesome has happened. It's to the point where I sit around in September and think, mmm mm, next month is gonna be sweet.

Right now the sweetness is that Starbucks fiscal years begin on October first. Meaning that starting October first, I will, for the first time ever, be able to say this quarter's numbers are MINE.

I won't bore you with the details, but just looking at the numbers from the two months I've been in position at the store I'm running now, we're hitting 7 out of 8 metrics on our business scorecard--the one metric I'm missing is turnover.

Yes, this is me brushing my nails on my shoulder. I won't bore you with the details but it means I'm awesome.

Also, Thad and I really wanted to hit the road to see Sue, Lane, and Mickey mouse soon but weren't sure about the timing/finances, etc., when BAM. The shop sells some machine that needs to be shipped to Southern California! So we're gonna hop in the u-haul sized truck the shop has, road trip it and make it a Sue/Lane/Disneyland weekend extravaganza.

Dear October, I missed you. :)
