There is no typical day, so I’ll describe today. I wake up at seven forty-five and cook chorizo-and-egg breakfast tacos, then sit on my porch and get my bearings. I head to my new store and assess the to-dos. I get ready for my brother to meet me around nine. We get started scrubbing freshly laid tile to prep for the toilet install, which goes wonderfully! Next we make a run to Home Depot for materials, and stop by a local taco joint to grab lunch. Back at the shop, a customer stops by to get a few extra holes punched in his belt. Around two I have a meeting with Ryan Scott Smith of Lamberts, a project we’ve been working on for a while. At four Chris McCray, a talented interior designer, stops by to talk about another project we’re working on for a new Uchi group restaurant.
After that meeting wraps up, we get back to the bathroom install. I stay after to clean up and organize for tomorrow. I finally grab my dog, Jolene, and head out for round three of tacos. I drop off a prototype at Lambert’s and head home around nine thirty to sit at the computer and reply to a million e-mails, and decompress before bed.
