One of Those Days

I sure had "one of those days" today.   The kind that makes you wonder why you crawled out of bed.  I was gone from home all day, and that is probably good.  If I had been home I might have had to hide in  the closet.  It all started when I didn't get the e-mail response I expected this morning.  Then my MDS CD froze my software program.  In all fairness, though, it was minor, and the wonderful gurus at SU support whipped right through a fix for the problem and it was running fine in minutes (thank you wonderful SU support folks).  After that it was this and that.  Lots of little things that became big.  Then the McDonald's gal didn't tighten the lid on my drink properly and I dumped nearly half of it in the car -- fortunately most went on the floor mat so I can just hose off the mat.  And on and on it went.  Last but not least, my dear hubby, who is most often a gem, told who he thought was a telemarketer that no, he would not give them an address.  Turns out it was a call regarding an order of mine to be shipped Federal Express.  Oh well, it will get here eventually. 

Well, the thank you card that was rolling around in my head yesterday did convert to paper like I hoped.  I think it turned out well.  It is a little 3 x 3 thank you, and inserts into the small square SU envelope.  I included these thank you cards in the orders I delivered to my customers.  If you make them to mail, you'll have to put them in larger envelopes so the post office will accept them.  I'm going to make a few more.

There was something good from today, however.  I went to my upline's technique class (Hi Buffy -- great techniques today).  After the class we sat and talked a good bit -- neither of us was busy this afternoon, so no pressure.  We discussed techniques, the new Smooch products, the diagonal board for the Simply Scored, Convention, dogs (huh?), kids.  We brainstormed about classes, craft days, and what else I don't know.  One topic led to another and another, then 4 more and 6 more.  By the end of the hour, or two, we had solved all the problems of the world.  Thanks, Buffy, I needed that!

I hope you like my thank you card today, and that you come back soon.
