I had plans to write more today, but I've been some kinda sick from a certain "mexican" fast food place...all the more reason to be making and eating my own practice cooking. Hopefully more tomorrow. Continue reading

First, the grease trap had to be pumped out. Which is as lovely as it sounds. I got to pay $100 for the privilege of having my cafe smell like sewer for the first half of the day. Luckily I had virtually no business before noon (wait, luckily??). Then, it... Continue reading

I'll have to tell the story when I'm not falling asleep sitting in a chair, but we have our health department approval and business license! :-D Continue reading

First of all, I am a bad blogger. In that I don't. I want to say that this time I will be more diligent, and I hope it will be true, but I just can't guarantee it. I'll try, though. Part of why I haven't been chronicling the day to... Continue reading

Today was some day..ups and downs. I found I've lost 5 pounds since Saturday, which is a great kickstart to my renewed efforts toward being healthy again! I felt energized and productive. Then the issue with my illegal architect reared its head again and swiftly put a damper on the... Continue reading

If you're like me, and you have birthday issues, I highly recommend seeing your therapist on the morning of your birthday. I know this sounds like kind of a Debbie Downer move, but it's actually the opposite. I got all the mopey talking about the shitty birthdays of the past... Continue reading

So, clearly blog every day of 2012 didn't happen. Why am I so bad at this? We'll, I can tell you exactly why. I have ADD. Or something. But I also have a thing about numbers. Like dates. And I keep wanting to commit to blogging and "start over" on... Continue reading

All we have done is pack pack pack, clean clean clean. We put in our notice on Sunday that we're leaving, and the landlords said they wanted to come in to check things out, and it was all doomsday and panic because the wife landlord is crazy, and she was... Continue reading

Today, my dad would have been 70. I think it's interesting to think about how different it is from 1941. I've been spending a lot of my free time lately on genealogy. The cool history of Savannah, and how in tune it is with its past has made me really... Continue reading

So, since this thing is a food blog and all, I figured I should actually write a post about me cooking, already. Today's been a crazy day, what with waiting in the tax day post office line, finishing up my second business plan in three months, and waiting waiting waiting... Continue reading

I have come to Savannah, Georgia on a quest to find a new cafe. I haven't said anything thus far because I'm under a non-disclosure agreement about the business in question, and I have to watch what I'm saying about the details. Savannah is magical! I came here last December... Continue reading

The café is not happening. There were a lot of factors, it is a long story. I don't know if I'll ever tell it here, but maybe. I don't know what to do from here. I'm pretty sure I'm getting crazier by the day. I don't even know what this... Continue reading

The business plan that I've agonized over, whined about, despised with much of my being, and generally ignored for the past four months (likely more) is done and ready to go to Kinko's tomorrow for printing and binding (and I don't care if they phased out the name.. Kinko's for... Continue reading

So, got blown off by the accountant yesterday which was hugely annoying because hello, didn't I just write you a check for a $2500 retainer five days prior? Had a big discussion with my other half about how I really need to be getting everything everything EVERYTHING in writing. I... Continue reading

Tomorrow I'm getting a phone call at noon with the first draft numbers they're putting together for the cafe business plan. I'm supposed to have all of my narrative (non financial data) type info all wrapped up so we can get it all compiled into the final product...only my narrative... Continue reading

I am snowed in at the Parker House, up in Boston getting trying to get things accomplished, but weather and meeting postponement and oh the lawyer moved offices have slowed progress down to a snail's pace. Things have been a rollercoaster the last few weeks...I've been everywhere from I give... Continue reading

It is time for change, I say! My life has been sort of post-apocalyptic for the past...many months. If you ever watch movies that involve zombies, or nuclear winter, or living underground for many generations, things like that... the people are always skittish, wearing torn, stained, frumpy, and/or ill-fitting clothes...
