Sometimes I Think Murphy Wrote His Law Just For Me!

I have been trying to drag myself back to health this week. I have been taking all the meds the doctor gave me. I've slept more in the last two weeks than I did proablby all last month. I have stayed inside and let P.R. take care of me, something that is not easy for me to do being the control freak that I am.

But honestly, even sitting here just writing this blog, I'm so exhausted. I just want to crawl back in bed and sleep but I have so much to do and some of it I blame on Murphy's law.

As most of you who follow me know, I spent a good deal of time picking a promo item to have made. I did polls to get advice from you, my readers, on the item, style, and color. I finally ordered stylus pens with my web address on them. They were scheduled to be delivered on the 13th of November. They didn't arrive.

On the 15th, I went on the site to see why we had still not received them. They had changed the delivery date to November 26th. No one contacted me about this change. The problem with this is I have a meeting on the 19th about getting my books on the shelves of a library here locally and it would have been wonderful to have those pens.

Most annoying about this delay is I talked P.R. in to getting some pens engraved as gift for P.R.'s team members to take on a business trip. P.R. leaves on November 22nd.

After they repeatedly ignored my emails, I decided to unleash P.R. on them (I am coughing and sneezing way too much to effectively yell at someone over the phone). After one phone call from P.R. they have promised to have them delivered either Monday or Tuesday. I'm hoping for Monday so I can have them for my meeting but as long as they make it before P.R. leaves for India, I'll be satisfied. I won't be happy mind you, but satisfied. I do not see myself using their service again.

Right now, I'm so unfocused. I think I need a nap before I try doing something else today. I plan to spend this evening writing and there will be a sneak peek this Sunday.

Take care, posse!
