On Friday, May 22nd the website was set to launch at 9:00 p.m. EST. We were working non-stop making sure that everything was as perfect as it could be. Then at 8:58, I called out to Pete that we should have drinks in our hands when we unlock the website to the public. That's what you do, right? You toast your drinks when good things happen! So, he ran through the house grabbing me a bottle of apple cider (the adult kind) and himself a soda (or pop as we say it in Ohio).
Now it was 8:59 and I frantically looked for the unlock button!
We made an emergency call to our IT guru and even he was stumbling through the pages looking for the magic button that would reveal the online store to all.
Sure enough, at 9:06, the guru opened the password protected website and we were open to the public!
I looked at Pete and said, "Well that didn't exactly go as planned."
But remember this, without the bumps in the road to keep you awake, you'd slam right into a wall!
