This is beginning to wear on both Karl and me.
Seems all we do these days is wait. We wait for doors to be made. And then we wait for a phone call that says the doors are done. That phone call never came; we had to make the call ourselves. We wait for the City to approve the plans (which they did--sorta--more quickly than I expected). We wait for the engineering firm to finish the requested changed. We wait for garbage service. We wait for waiting periods on the liquor license transfer to expire. We wait to stop waiting.
We wait a lot. And we're impatient.
I think part of the "problem" is that I believe people when they say, "We'll have that done in about a week." Two or three weeks later, they're finally finished. Or, "I'll have a bid for you on Monday." On Friday, we call and they just haven't gotten to it yet.
I knew from the start that there would be periods of doing nothing and that the entire process would take longer than anticipated. But sometimes the reality of inactivity is unpleasant.
