These days I find myself fantasizing about us being open, serving customers, listening to good tunes and having fun times. Sometimes I feel like if I visualize it enough then it'll just miraculously happen. But the truth is we're still in the City's Permit system and we really have no idea what's going on.
Brief recap - we had some plumbing issues, which prompted the plumbing inspector to want new plans, which then had to go back to every single department and get signed, which was then approved by said inspector and now it's just somewhere in the ether of the City. The plumbing dept was supposed to be the last stop. They gave us a number to call to get the plans, but it's been days and no one is returning our phone calls. So they're supposedly all approved, we just still can't do anything about it.
I have to believe that there's some kind of reason why we've had so many delays and that we just don't know what it is yet. Hopefully it's a really, really good reason. Because I'm getting tired of people asking if we're open yet and having to say no. Because gosh, darn it, we want to show off our beautiful new store!!!!!
