Oops! I Smashed My Keyboard!

I cannot believe it’s been 4 weeks since I last wrote! There is a very good reason, however, not a very sensible one! I have been incredibly frustrated! I was told by my landlord for 363 Pequot Avenue that I had to delay the opening of my store due to ‘Zoning’ issues. Actually, it is called ‘Variance’ – which requires for every 200 Square feet of retail space in Fairfield County, retail stores are required to have a parking slot assigned to them. I should have had 8, I had 4. This fortunately was not my fault, however, it caused the delay and I am still not permitted to open until the issues have been dealt with!

Well, this also has to do with The Pink Pom-Pom Project – we cannot hold events on the premises because it’s technically not ‘Open’. So, after having a minor melt down and Pity-Party-For-One, I am back on my feet and getting ready for the next Opening of the store. Although it stills remains a mystery, there is one near in the future!

Please watch this space and keep supporting The Pink Pom-Pom Project!

    Anda, you’ve overcome much worse than this! Thank God you are smart and resilient . Giving birth is never easy and sometimes a long labor makes the delivery more meaningful. As for the computer, looks kind of dated, you probably needed a new and better one, anyway. Good luck, I know the shop and P4 will be a great success!!!
    you’ve gone from not enough hair to not enough parking — that’s pretty good in my book!

    i second what diane said, and sympathize with you on the variance. i received a note in my mail box from the city inspector on fridiay with orders to file a variance or face consequences for replacing a dilapidated fence that collapsed with a hearty stone wall. i’ve spent two days at city hall trying to file , but couldn’t see anyone because they were in a meeting…alas…
