** The last post featured the completed childcare room... yeah right**
After attending the 3 hour orientation on Wed to get my home licensed to do daycare I about had a panic attack. I was literally beginning to hyperventilate as I rushed home from the meeting to get Ted and head off to work for the day. (The meeting got out late so I was late for work blah).
From March 12, 2014 (the day of the meeting) I have 60 days to get all my necessary paperwork and inspections done.
Also from March 12 I have 90 days to get completely licensed, or I will have to restart the entire process!
This may sound simple enough BUT at the meeting I discovered a ton of things that need to be changed. There are so many things we need to get done that I don't think I can give a full list. Some major things include (but are most certainly not limited to):
Moving a wall in the downstairs room
Installing a door to the outside (so there are 2 exits to the outside)
Tearing down the play set
Fixing the fence
Getting a business license
Having the fire department come do an inspection
Getting our wood burning stove cleaned and inspected
Creating a boat load of forms and booklets for my business
Tyler is all over this. He has been amazing all throughout this process and I have no idea how I even deserve him. Seriously, it is a mystery.
After the meeting on Wednesday, as I was melting down, I called Tyler and started lifting off the things I need to do and the things I need to get fixed. One of the things was that I need 6 sleeping mats. By the time I got to work I had received an email confirmation for an order for 6 sleeping mats.
The next day (yesterday) I told him our stove needs to be inspected. He called me back 10 minutes later and said a guy is scheduled to come out. When I got home last night he told me a man is coming tomorrow (today) to grind up all the stumps in the backyard. When he called me this morning to say the stump guy was all done he also added that he already tore down the play set. WOW! We might actually be able to get all this done!!!!
Say a prayer for us because divine intervention will definitely be required.
