|RIP Eddie Money. You totally shaped my teenage years with your heartfelt music, and for that, I thank you. |
|My life is chaos. |
So after one year, and 8 months. . . . . we are finally opening the gas station we bought on Monday!
I'm still buying the products for the store and setting things up this weekend, but Monday morning I'll have my coveted Certificate of Occupancy. Let me just say that this process alone has been nothing but a nightmare. With every inspection/inspector, they hit us with new things to do.
Coke is apparently too busy to send someone out to set up their cooler. So, I'm thinking I may offer them an ultimatum to either get it set up or come take their stuff. I do wonder if that will actually get someone out there, or piss them off completely.
We have until May 31st to move the garage over to the new place. And Ramadan is going to start this weekend [Sunday I believe], which just adds another kink to this chaos.
I thought we'd be open by Friday, but Mother Nature had her say and everything around us was flooded for days. I swear I've never driven through so much water before, and it's a miracle I am not one of the thousands who has lost their cars because they drove down the same streets I did. Our garage has a good 5 vehicles that are a total loss.
The Fire Marshall nailed us for a few more things we have to change, but he's going to actually trust me to get them done and is letting us open. I admit it, I'm totally shocked.
If you can't tell by this post, I'm completely scatterbrained at the moment.
For those taking HSP classes and waiting on reviews, I know I'm behind, but I'm hoping to catch up this morning before I'm back running between two businesses and getting the last minute items needed to for the big opening.
And last but not least,
T H A N K

for all of the anniversary wishes. Can't believe it's been 12 years! And to Jace ~ Happy Anniversary to you as well, my friend . You're not the only one who was late this year.
Alrighty, I'm off to get so reviews in. And with any luck, after a week of running the new place, I'll be back on a regular work schedule, which will free up pc time for me
Have a wonderful weekend all of you lovely, wonderful, talented WDCers. Much to you all.
|Dang. Always a day late.... Happy Anniversary, Miss T. |
