Trials, Not Many Tribulations

It's lunchtime so there is no coffee, and I am ripping all the Christmas cd's so I am not listening to iTunes right now. Yesterday was a trial from beginning to end, no doubt about it. I waited all day for my delivery from Bullseye and, as usual, it didn't come till 5:00. Unexpectedly it did not contain the 35 boxes--500 lbs--of frit and molds I ordered. Finally just got word that the missing pallet has been located, now I am just waiting to hear when it can be delivered. I know they are going to try to fob me off with a "We only do residential deliveries on Saturday" line, but I am not going to take it. I have a business, this is a business delivery, it is easier than many other small business deliveries (as easy as it can be without a loading dock), and I am bloody well not going to hang around all day on Saturday again waiting for it! I have a Christmas tree to buy and decorations to put up. I am NOT working this Saturday!

And I am far too cranky to be relatively newly home from vacation. Now I have to run get a kiln load in of things which need to ship tomorrow. Sometime before I A) die, B) disembowel someone, or C) kill someone, I will do a nice long post about the book experience of the month and the recent show. If you get the Crafts Report magazine, check out the back cover AND the regioanl artists section inside.

We were waiting for a FedEx delivery the other night, that would enable my husband to finish a job he was doing, and it didn't come until almost 10pm!

It is amazing that anything ever gets done...
