Well ... well ...well ... where the heck did that summer go?! You have such high hopes for summer and the slower pace and then the end of August rolls around, the stores are hanging up a mixture of Fall and Christmas decorations and you are stand there blinking in the store. Really. Just blinking. That was me this week when I walked into one of the big box craft stores. I mean, I get it. It's retail, right? We have been talking pumpkins, mums, Christmas trees and wreaths all summer. But that DOESN'T MEAN we have to start putting it all up in AUGUST for the love of God.
Do you know what else
have been talking about? Events. All things FUN with our new Director of Fun/Administrative Assistant, Lynn Scott. My dreams have come true and it has been all about timing. I have known Lynn Scott for many, many years and she recently joined our team as our events coordinator and planner. Basically, she and I are going to get in a lot of trouble. Scott is considering throwing himself off a bridge at the moment.
The best part of her starting with us (besides all the exciting things we have coming your way) is her tender heart and gullibility. Yes, I said
. For example, we have this old time scale we found in an attic here and we put it downstairs for fun.
I know, right? When has a scale EVER been fun.
On Lynn's first day, after she filled out paperwork, we asked her to just go ahead and "weigh in" due to a "new accountability at work for better health" thing. She actually hopped on the scale and was trying to figure out the weights. We were dying.
. Her husband, Dale, who used to work with us, actually put us up to this prank and I'm all about a good prank. He and I were constantly pranking each other. But NEVER would I EVER get on a scale on a new job. NEVER, EVER. In fact, it could be my dream job and I would walk out! LOL! (We took a video of the whole thing for Dale--which is where we got the pic above--sorry it is a little fuzzy.)
Needless to say, we all had a great first day with tears of laughter. Lynn has hit the ground running with kid's events, future classes, Sip and Shop times, local vendors for future Saturdays and more. Keep an eye on Instagram, Facebook and our website for all things fun while we still help you bring green home in exciting new ways! Welcome aboard Lynn! We are really excited for what the future holds at FGS! And if you would like some "health accountability", stop by our offices. We can help! BAAAhahahahahahahahaaaa!!
