Shannon has run of the motel until Monday evening! Her dad and stepmom left for Tyler, Tx to complete moving the rest of their stuff up to Littlefield, they left yesterday afternoon. Yes she does have help if things get too crazy but she's the boss this weekend.
That is quite something for her dad, she has really impressed him with her abiity and he actually for the first time since I can remember he has confidence in her abilities. I am over the moon excited for her. I know she can keep everything going smoothly. I found out about it just a few minutes ago when I called her...
"I'm kinda busy mom I'm running the office this weekend, dad and Jenn won't be back until Monday evening. Yeah I have help. Anyway I'm working with a client right now, I'll call you back later this evening okay? Love ya"
I talked with Shannon a while ago about her weekend She didn't get to call yesterday because she was going through all the sutff concerning the weekend with her dad. She did very well, She did have to call in the other maintenance guy to unclog a toilet in one of the rooms (child tried to stuff a large wad of TP down the toilet) but that was the only "adventure" all weekend. She got people checked in, checked out and no complaints. She said that this is just the first step in her dad handing it all over to her in the future. He told her that after she heals better and gets her driver's license he will be giving her the van, then she can come here, we can pack up the van and move me as well as the rest of her things and my girls down there.
After the two weeks she is going to be taking over management of the entire motel. Her dad will be there as "backup" but she is going to be the ultimate boss...am I proud? Huh huh huh do ya think I'm proud? LOL You betcha I am!
