First, 38 days!! I had lost counct because there were 2 blogs I didn’t post the days, so I had to go back and look.
Ok, this week was so busy. Not in a typical sense of running around or being out of the house, but busy in the sense that things kept getting in the way of my computer time. Trust me, I’m not complaining lol. But it was getting hard to stay caught up on stuff. I spent this morning getting caught up on blogs. I didn’t comment much because I was so behind. The email list is always keeping me busy too and I heard plenty of dings, but I’m focusing on blogger this morning. Saturdays and Sundays are great times to write, because I typically am not on the phone until after noon, since B sleeps in. The phone is primarily what kept me so busy this week. Thank God for myFaves haha! Also, I was getting lots of my Amazon shipments. I almost titled this “Amazon has lost some of my love” or something, but really it’s not Amazon, its the sellers and FedEx and USPS. So let me address those rants.
The opal ring. Do I have it? Nope. Sabrina Silver finaly sent me the size 7 after much haggling about the size 6. It wasn’t going to be available for awhile, and she wouldn’t guarantee the sale price. I said it was in stock when it was on sale, so the sale price should hold, but if not, I can’t buy it. All she said was “ok”. Yeah, that’s customer service. I finally got her to understand that I would take the size 7 and she sent it out. Finally. But, it came USPS. Not my beloved brown of UPS. so, B checks the mail Thursday night and there’s a note from the postman saying the package is now at the post office. All day thursday, I had my door propped open expecting shipment. I go on Amazon to track the ring, and it said delivery attempted at 12:52 pm. Liar! You did not attempt delivery you jerk. He couldn’t leave it in my secure balbox because it requires a signature. No one hangs out by their damn mailbox. Doesn’t it make sense to come to the door? They’ve done it before. so I thought about asking Carol to take me on Friday, because she was coming over to visit after her trip, and loan me her suitcase, but when she got here, I didn’t feel like it. I called the number on the slip, and the guy could reschedule delivery, but can’t guarantee that the guy won’t do the same damn thing. So Carol wrote on that slip, please knock on door for signature confirmation, and we put it in the mailbox. So, if its the good mail person, I might actually get the thing today.
Next, on the same day, Thursday, FdEx delivered my Vittles Valutt 2. But I might never have known if I hadn’t tracked it. All day Thursday it said out for deliver. But it never came. I tracked it Thursday night and it saied delivered, and gave the name of who signed for it, which I prayed was my manager. Dave and I stopped by the office yesterday and they had it. The manager said she’s complained before, because the guy just drops off the packages at the office and doesn’t leave a note on the doors. Idiot.
So yesterday Carol and I are sitting out front, and a FedEx truck drives up, stops, and then drives off. I’m expecting something from GDB, so I wonder if he had it, saw us, and still went to the office? UPS showed up ten minutes later and it’s my usual delivery guy. He’s like, you’re getting stuf every day haha! I’m like, I’m glad this is you and not FedEx, they suck, you rock. He laughed and said thanks. UPS always comes to my door, I tell them I’m blind, they watch for cats. They’re friendly. I like UPS.
I have another package coming USPS, my sofa blanket. I wonder if he can leave that in the oversize box, or if it requires a signature.
so, I got my dog bowls yesterday. The description sai “large stainless steel dog bowl with non skid base” So I ordered 2. Wanna know what I got? Two sets of small pet food bowls in a stand with rubber feet. Huh? What? I wrote the seller and said I got the wrong bowls, or else the description is really terrible. So now I can return them, pay for the shipping myself, get to some shipping store, etc. But, I think I might actually have use for them. They might make cute trinket holders. Easier than sending them back. I’ll go to Petsmart for my actual food bowls.
What have I learned from all my Amazon shopping? Order from Amazon direct only. Those shops get my stuff to me within days. Granted, I love all my stuff for the most part. My bathroom is coming together quite nicely. Can’t wait to get the towels washed!
Is that all of my shipment news? I think so. Oh, I like the Vittles Vault 2 a lot. I need to wash it though, as it smells like plastic.
Carol put together the Swiffer Wet Jet yesterday! I had knocked a can of Dr. Pepper out of her hand when she got here, so we cleaned up that spot. My floor is really bad. She said the pad is already filthy and we only did a little spot haha. I guess my scrubbing with the sponge did next to nothing.
It was really great to see Carol yesterday, yay! Then L came and got the tv, I showered and went to the meeting with Kevin. It was a good meeting. Today is B’s 12 year sobriety anniversary! I’ve always gotten him fancy chips. The first year we were together I ordered one online, and then last year I went to the store that sells them here and my friend described them to me. Wednesday I went with Georgie to get one. It’s shiny gold with silver, so it sounds relly cool. I’ve gotten him enamaled chips before, but this one sounded cool. They have a meeting room in that store and we went to the meeting, and I figured out that place will be ideal to go on SunVan to when I have my dog. SunVan gets you there early, and I could hang out in the bookstore, where it’s safe. So that will finally be a meeting I can get myself to when I have my dog, yay! There’s a cheesesteak place right next door, so I can grab dinner before the van comes. Perfect!
I think I’m caught up for the most part now. Oh, I did make it known that I don’t appreciate people talking about my getting to meetings or not getting to meetings. So I feel good about that.
I’m getting way excited, especially since I’ve got a suitcase borrowed. Now I just need to get actual dog bowls, and I’ll feel prepared. I also need to get to Target and get some odds and ends, and then I’ll be all ready to go.
Ok hmmm. I really thought I had more to write. I have another post planned, maybe that’s what I’m thinking of. It’s a non doggy countdown post. I think I’ve got all the doggy thoughts down, so anything else that comes to me will be a non countdown post hahaha!! Not that all this is goddy related, but I’m still documenting my days of waiting, so they count. I don’t feel like editing, so typos will be living in this post. Sometimes typos need a place to crash.
