Now, we wait.
The loan information is away.
We hope to hear about it soon, but banks move on their schedule, not ours.
On the emailing list we started last Sunday afternoon, we have added more people. That list is now over 100 strong. Most of the people on it represent at least one other person - a spouse, a significant other, a parent, a co-worker. Some represent an entire office - between 5 and 20 people. Others represent families of 3 to 6 people. One address actually equals 4 college sized classrooms, and we'll be adding other college professors as soon as we speak to them to get their preferred mailing address.
The list is an interesting blend of mailing and emailing addresses.
I can say with reasonable confidence that our emailing list represents at least 300 people who are just waiting for us to open our doors.
When we get closer to the Opening Date, we will email them and ask for RSVPs to our Guinea Pig Gala. Not only will they get treated to our baked goods and local music, we expect to print buttons, mugs, and calendars (with specials) just for them.
