I don't know what I was asking Ellie to do the other day but whatever it was she did it to my surprise and her rebuttal to me was (she's 9):
"We children are capable of doing anything we put our minds to."
I came back with a witty:
"So then you should have no problem cleaning your room then."
"EXCEPT for that!" was her quick reply.
Blogland is becoming very quiet as everyone tries to tie up loose ends. Things have been so crazy here, I just can't believe it.
I have had SUCH A TIME in procuring hubby's 2 presents. One is a blue tooth phone and the other is an accessory for said phone which hooks up to your rear view mirror and displays the number of the person calling so you don't have to fumble for your phone and also enable you to speak hands free. I ordered this neat gadget from a company that rhymes with Bammacher - Schlammer.
I ordered it in plenty of time and even had it shipped over to NY state so it wouldn't get clogged through Customs. Well, the shipping company they use - which has three letters in it's name and starts with "D" and ends with "L" - LOST it. I was watching the tracking info on it online and saw it go from Ohio to Syracuse NY and then FLORIDA. What???? Yes, it went all the way to Florida and then they lost it. And lied about it. Arrggh!!!! So now Bammacher - Schlammer has sent out a new one (they conveniently over-nighted it) and I can pick it up on Monday.
I thought I was in the clear. Notsomuch.
In order for this unit to work one has to have a compatible blue tooth phone which my husband did not. I called our wireless provider and found he was eligible for a free upgrade. Terrific! They would sent it out right away and I should have it in 3 days. (this was well over one week ago) I called yesterday to see what was holding it and it turns out it was never sent. Perfect! The two gifts I got my husband just do not want to co-operate with me. I have to say I was a little miffed because this was obviously their mistake and they knew it. I told them to find a way to get it to me by Monday and they said that was impossible. Blood curdling, veins popping I told them nothing is impossible - be like Nike and just do it!
Long story short, they called a store in town and had them put it aside for me. Now, I am all done my shopping and really don't like having to fight with crowds but this seemed like a great solution so I went to pick it up yesterday. Had it in my hands and everything! Problem was they would have to automatically cancel my husband's phone (he is still out of town right now) in order to activate the new one. Bloody hell! Now I have to go back tomorrow - Christmas Eve day - and get it then.
A glass of wine is starting to look really good right now. And it's only 9:35 a.m.
I want to wish all of you ladies (and a couple of men) a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I am blessed to know such terrific bloggers who continually put a smile on my face by stopping by my little space in blogsosphere.
