Talking with a friend and laughing over the goofiest shit for hours. She knows who she is. 🙂
Receiving the autographed Scott Stapp CD “Proof Of Life” that I won when someone else backed out of Walmart’s Soundcheck Giveaway. The CD is signed in gold and an enormous poster promoting the CD and the Soundcheck interview came separately. The poster is beautiful. All in all, a pretty cool win, and my second score during the holidays via a Facebook giveaway. I encourage people to enter these things, you never know what you might win. My first win shocked me and totally made my month. This win was a really lovely surprise. 🙂
Receiving toys for Baby V, handmade by Megan @ https://www.etsy.com/shop/PeonyCrochet
I took photos of all of the toys and will be showcasing them with Verity as soon as I can catch her. After I took the photos, with her permission, of course, she resumed sniffing and inspecting the toys. First she simply tried stealing the package right out of my hands. Anything with bells, man, she’ll attack you for playtime. Then she systematically snatched one right off my bed, and ran off with it in her mouth. She’s a toy beast, and she’s obsessed with these. If you have pets, check out Megan’s store on Etsy and see if she can make you something that your pet will love. V is picky, but she LOVES these. I tried taking it from her to throw it (I had to lock the others away, she tried getting into the envelope. Megan, I swear she smells Chester!) and she nearly tore my hand off. Possessive little shit. THANK YOU SO MUCH MEGAN! You know how much this means to me. 🙂
This one is my favorite: SO creative
Crappy part of my day? Not (legally) being able to shoot the plumber that showed up and tried to gauge me for a job that is 3/4’s cheaper than what he quoted me. The asshole then has the balls to charge me a service fee for coming out, when all he did was look in my back yard. He calls that a diagnosis of the problem?! I beg to fucking differ! I got my service fee back right away, called someone else, and hopefully this fucking mess will be handled tomorrow by one company or another. Whoever gets here first and honors the price I was originally quoted is the one that gets my business, otherwise murders WILL be committed. I am so sick of this shit. How hard is it to be where you say you will be in a timely fashion? I understand some jobs are much bigger than mine, therefore mine is lower priority since it’s not as much money, but don’t blow me off for DAYS and expect me to be all sweetness and light. Not going to happen.
Here’s hoping, and praying, that tomorrow leads to better days, better situations, and more reasons to smile.
The good stuff sounds excellent, and the plumber sounds like a waste of space.
I was LIVID. I tore into the person on the phone, but she understood, and said the owner will call me in the morning. If he can honor the price the other company gave me (they’ve been giving me the runaround for four days, so do they really need my business? NO, but I called them because I was desperate.) or make it better, awesome, but there is no way they’re getting $500 per drain from me. That’s nowhere near normal.
Congrats, my dear. ♥
Thanks hon! Hope you’re doing well. TTYS.
That was the one of the best parts of my day, too. 🙂 As for the plumber, I am sorry people are asshats.
I do not know WHO you’re talking about! LOL. Do I even KNOW you?
Yeah, that plumber was a jackass. The guys that are here now did a very efficient job and stuck to the quote, albeit a few bucks more because they really took the job seriously. They even cleaned out the line in the wrong direction (for free) and pulled out a massive amount of someone else’s tree roots (several feet worth!!), which was causing the problem here. Unbelievable, right? They’re almost done and not only did the younger guy talk to me and explain everything to me while looking me in the eye like a person, but he was very sweet and totally impressed by my hockey knowledge. LOL.
