RE: Ranting corner
Why did I say I would make country fried steak today? Facepalm

Damn, it's a lot of work and makes a mess...then there are the mashed potatoes to make with it...damn. At least I won't need to cook again for a day or two.

RE: Ranting corner
Hubby woke up early and decided to bake a cake.

So guess who woke up to a kitchen disaster??

I shouldn't be that way. I know I should be happy he likes to cook.

It's just the mess. Omg the mess.

Have you tried teaching him the "clean as you go" method? Consider

I have and he pointed out that that's why he has me. Laugh out load

I also care because the consequences don't only affect her. My grandma won't get to see her oldest daughter, granddaughter and great grandkids as much because as long as my aunt is living with her, my mom and sister won't go back.


Thanks, jennybee! Smile

I think it's definitely hard to watch people you care about struggling with various issues. You want to help, but sometimes they don't want help or feel they don't need help. All you can do is offer your assistance and support and hope they take it.

Maybe your mom and sister can visit with your grandma in other locations? Maybe she can visit your mom and sis at their homes or maybe they can take your grandma out for lunch or out for the day so they won't have to deal with your aunt.

I'm not cutting her off entirely, but I can't fault anyone else.

Part of the problem is that my parents and my sister and her family live out of state, so coming to visit is an ordeal that involves either 13 hours on the road or flying with two little kids.

The other problem is that my aunt follows my grandma around. If grandma goes to Florida for the winter, my aunt goes too. She's even trying to convince grandma to sell her place down there so they can buy one together which is a terrible idea because among her other issues, she's also a hoarder. Facepalm

That definitely sounds like a difficult situation. Hopefully your grandma will realize that your aunt's behavior is limiting her time with your mom and sister and her grandkids and decide to do something about it, instead of letting your aunt call all the shots. Family dynamics are never easy that's for sure.

Can you get venture debt solely based off a business plan? Probably, not huh.. also probably not because I don't exactly have a degree in my intended business (or a degree at all for that matter).

What are you going to grow??

Nothing, I wanna sell pizza. Woodfire cooked pizza. I ultimately want a restaurant. Sort of pub style restaurant, nothing too fancy but certainly not a McDonalds "restaurant". Something I could franchise out.

The issue is that the pizza market is pretty saturated. BUT I wanna do slightly higher end pizzas than the competition and the key point of difference would be a big ass pizza oven and 'make your own' pizza. Pizza joints could do the make your own but they can't exactly put in a big pizza oven easily.

The other bonus is the market I wanna target, that being the evening/night market doesn't have any pizza places in town. They're all Asian or Mexican or Moroccan (in fairness that Moroccan place is apparently delicious going by everyone around me always going on about it).


The biggest obstacle I have is money but also the CBD here is dead. I can walk down town and every second store is an empty lot. The silver lining being that the night life is still in town and hasn't moved to the big shopping area out of town (which is why I've moved from wanting it to be an all day family place to more of a night time family/pub style thing). And I also have no experience in business OR making pizza... The extent of my knowledge on making pizza is taking a frozen one out of the freezer and cooking it for 15minutes at 200 degrees C.
