You know that saying...."No news is good news."? I totally used to be a believer in that. But let me tell you something....when you're waiting on a building permit, NO NEWS is DEFINITELY not good news.
So we're still in the same boat that we were in at the time of my last post. To say that I'm frustrated is an understatement. I am trying so so hard to stay positive but I feel a little bit like I've lost my momentum. I know that once the construction gets underway I'll get back my feeling of excitement....I'm just trying to be patient and wait for that moment. Every day I'm contuing to do work for this store. Setting up accounts left and right, meeting with vendors and technicians, and salespeople, all to find the right products and ingredients to make my store a success. From a dairy supplier to a shopping bag supplier...and then office-type stuff like finding a payroll company and a credit card service provider...on top of the store design elements like fabric choices and paint colors....there are just so many things that need to be found and ordered...you can't even imagine. So I've been really busy with those kinds of things....in addition to continual work on the menu, order forms, etc..
I did set-up my phone and internet service at the store....so that was kind of fun to get a phone # and hear the phone ring for the first time. Unfortunately the call wasn't for me lol! It was intended for the previous owner of the phone #. Hilarious. So that's our story for week 7. Hoping that my next post has some better news! Thanks! -K
