They're Here!!!

Well my shipment of books has finally arrived. Let me tell you....this has been quite an ordeal. Just ask my husband! I was so near tears last evening. All day yesterday, the UPS tracking site told me the books would be delivered on 12/10/08 (yesterday). Well I waited and waited and waited and waited. I kept checking the UPS tracking information for updates to see where the heck they were. The information on their site said that home deliveries could be made up through 7:00 p.m. Well that time came.....and went. I know they are busier this time of year.....but figured that if they weren't there by was hopeless. I was so upset.

I had given up hope. Well suddenly they showed up. It was 8:45!

Well the fiasco continues. I stayed up late last night signing books and getting some ready for shipping. Now I'm printing labels from my Paypal account as this is how all of the orders were paid for. Well it seems that with any orders placed before August 1, the "print shipping label" option has disappeared. And then, the USPS site is not working. Calgon....take me away.

Anyway, I'm trying hard to get most, if not all, of these shipped out today. Please be patient with me.

For those of you who are still thinking of ordering...I still have a few ATC's left to giveaway with book orders. First come, first served.
