Time to Get Busy (Photostory)
It's a rainy day in Morristown. Racquel is not letting that stop her from getting to the shop. Remember her shop, Ni'Chalet's?
With baby Shay and umbrella in hand, Racquel hurries from the parking lot to the store. The rain is coming down hard.
Finally inside, Racquel drops the umbrella.
"Alright, I think I'll just let that dry for a few minutes.
"Mommy has to get out of this raincoat. I'm going to sit you down for a few minutes."
"Alrighty. Let's go get your playpen from the back."
"Hang right here, and I'll get your toy and your blanket."
"Mmmm, yumm, ummm" (Shay)
"Here's Curious George. He's going to keep you company."
Baby Shay loves her Curious George. It's her new favorite toy. This should keep her busy while Racquel works in the store.
First she goes over to her pink dress display that she plans to hang up on the back wall. She will need help with this task.
Next she surveys the empty rack that needs to be filled. She has the merchandise in the back room.
Next she takes a look at her handbag and shoe display shelf. She still needs to select four pair of shoes for the display.
"What's this hat doing here?" (Racquel)
She reaches up to remove the hat. She will put something decorative in it's place.
While trying on the hat, her cell phone rings.
"Hmmm, that's probably Angelica." (Racquel)
Just as expected, it's her cousin Angelica."Hey girl. Are you still going to be able to come help?" (Racquel)
"I'm already here. I brought Shay with me." (Racquel)
"Okay. I'll see you in a bit. Drive safely. The rain is making the roads slick." (Racquel)
Racquel says goodbye to Angelica. She's happy her cousin volunteered to help in the store. Without the store generating money, she's reluctant to hire the help she really needs. She has to get this store open asap, or her husband is going to kill her. There is still a lot to do. She still has to have the store signs hung, the chandeliers installed, merchandise displayed and the list goes on. The last time we saw Racquel, she was reopening Ni'Chalet's in a different location. Once she got everything set and was ready to open the store, there was a major snag. The owner of the building was having serious financial issues and ended up filing bankruptcy. Racquel was heartbroken. Luckily she didn't loose a lot of money, thanks to her husband's expert negotiation skills. However, it did mean she would have to find a new location. She has had setback after setback since she decided to expand the store. Of course, her husband thinks this is a sign that she should have stayed at the first location. Racquel is not listening to him. She is determined to prove him wrong. Wish her luck in getting everything done so she can reopen the store in a couple of weeks.
