So, to continue the previous post (from oodles ago, since I just realized today that this post never actually posted), I went to the doctor today, got antibiotics. Start them tomorrow, hopefully they cause me to feel better soon, cause God knows I could use getting out of this coughing and rib pain misery.
Took a nap when I got home. Bad idea. Apparently I needed the sleep, but now its late and I'm wide awake.
Well, so I started on that guy's shelf order. Emailed him, because I
didn't have two hammocks in the color he wanted, and asked him if he
wanted to pick again, or what. He picked another hammock, I went and
looked... and I don't have it. Ugh. So I emailed him again.
haven't heard back yet, but let me share just a little part of his
email, "Will you be able to mail it tomorrow??" OMFG. Seriously? Let
me tell you the #1 way to drive me nuts: put in a big order, act like
your entitled, and continually ask when it's going to ship. He hasn't
even paid yet, so it's not like it could ship even if I finished it
right freaking now. At this point, I'm ready to box it all up, set up a
video camera, light the box on fire like a freaking effigy with his
name on the shipping label, and hope the smoke somehow forms a
hand-shape-flipping-someone-off. I won't, obviously, because after
making all the effort for this order, that would be super counter
productive, but I tell you, I work hard to put out these products and
people wanting me to rush, even more than I currently do (and the
current wait time for orders is SUPER short), just drives me up the
But all that said and done, once I know about the
hammock he wants, his order is ready for me to weigh and all and get a
final quote for him and get out. And I will be so happy to be done with
Speaking of done, I think I'm like 2-3 toys
shy of completing my massive anything-goes order, and I have to sew the
hammock that goes with it. Got a payment in for an order that's been
sitting here for awhile (from someone I know who I told could take their
time with payment) and then have another one for a porthole house from
someone who emailed me... which will also be going out tomorrow. Both
with Santa return address labels, cause hey, I gotta use em up and
they're all I have.
