It looked like it was going to be a great week when it started. I had written mega chapters during the weekend, the orders for the proofs were ready to move by Monday, yup… it looked like a banner week. Before Murphy put his big foot in the works. Someone is going to shoot him one of these days.
It started when I noticed that UPS didn’t have a trace on the number later in the day. Well, that happens, it will be there in the morning. Nope. Eventually something showed up listing it as being New Brunswick… Really? Hum… whatever. Then it said something about the paperwork missing. Figures, I have had things like that happen before. Then it showed that the package was in Winnipeg… yes! But it was having issues in customs… been there, done that. Then it said it cleared and was in transit… yes. No. But Thursday I was ready to bite someone… what was going on? Phoned UPS. They said the papers showed up but not the package. Then it started showing up on the screen later in the day… Franklin Park, Ill. – Chicago, Ill. – Louisville, KY – (hey, which direction is this thing going?) Minneapolis, MN. – Winnipeg. In customs… that was on Friday morning… delivery… last thing in the afternoon… going into a corner and flip my lip… funny farm, here I come.
So the UPS guy gets to Becca’s… she is at work and he won’t give it to anyone else. (**&&%^%$##%%… you get the picture. So the love of her life followed him to UPS and picked it up there. Now it waits until she gets home, and I will finish this after she sees it.
Snoop has been a rock through it all… well, most of him… he has had tummy problems… if you are sleeping and you suddenly smell the odor of regurgitated cat food you know it is going to be bad… especially when you get a feeling that there is something running across your leg calf… and no, I had nothing to do with it. Ewwwwwww… SNOOP.. sad looking kitty… and I really understand… BUT IT IS 3:30 IN THE MORNING ! ….sigh. No help for it… get up, wash down me, clean up bed, start washer… sigh. On the way back to bed… notice he is eating again… close eyes and wish he was sitting on a desk in the UPS office.
Snoop is fine now, it is daylight and he doesn’t have tummy issues during daylight hours. He will be back tonight, purring, ready for cuddles, and backing his furry rear end into my face… They really should make a back up alarm for cats. Sigh.
Well, the proofs are in, Becca has seen them, only a quick change that doesn’t need another proof brought in for. So it is time for Snoop and I to order, release and close that chapter… then we are going to get ready for Halloween… Have a safe and fun time with the kiddies. Until next week. And we will see how things turn out with the next order. For now we are happy and ready for the next round.

ROFL that was fun. You can laugh now. I know it wasn’t fun at the time. Dare I say I hope the ordered books don’t go through that. Hate cleaning up messes like Snoop made but we love our animals. Give him hugs
He kept me up half the night with needs for cuddling… we have a few changes to make but nothing desperate.
