Phew. It’s been a busy month and I have been neglectful of my blogging duties. I am in the home stretch of my pregnancy, and I have been working furiously trying to get everything organized before I go on maternity leave on Oct. 15. I mean, it’s not exactly like I will be completely out of commission, eating bon bons and watching daytime tv, as Mindy likes to say, but I will not be waxing until Feb 1! I almost can’t believe it. When I do come back I am planning on waxing a few days at the Northwest location and a few days at the Tanasbourne location. So, in the meantime, I have been meeting with the staff, delegating, and trying to get myself ready to let a few things go.

There have also been some changes that I wanted to chat about. Heather, who has been a waxer at Urban Waxx since day one, will no longer be a part of our team. Heather’s mother in law has taken ill, and she also happens to be Heather’s childcare for her darling daughter, Farris. That means that Heather will be focusing on being a wonderful wife, mama, and daughter in law, and it’s clear that working a few shifts at Urban Waxx will have to take a back seat to that for the time being.

Heather and I talked at length about the situation, and I must say it’s pretty sad. Heather and Mindy were the 2 waxers the very first day that I did interviews, and they have been witness, over the past 3 years, to so many staff changes and growth. We watched Heather go through her pregnancy, we have seen little Farris blossom into the cutest almost 2 year old around, and we have gotten to know Heather’s lovely husband, Tyler. She is a part of the Urban Waxx family, and knowing that she is going through so much stress and pain is painful for us as well.

So, Heather is in out thoughts and we will be missing her smiling face and abundance of good cheer. We love you, Mrs. Ashlock. You know that no matter what happens, you are part of the Urban Waxx family. xxoo
