I've been noticing some blogger friends are having, just like Alexander in Judith Viorst's book, rather a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
My day had a downer as well. The vertical blinds we special ordered finally arrived from Home Depot. We'd ordered roller shades also. The roller shades came a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, they were spring loaded and not loop corded like we asked. We had to reorder them. It takes 6-8 weeks to arrive in Hawaii. Sigh.
Now the verticals. We asked for an outside mount. Yup. It's an outside mount. But when Art put them up to look at them, he saw that the measurements they used was for an inside mount so they're TOO SHORT. Arghhhh! We went down earlier to Home Depot because they'd also forgotten to include some brackets in the shipment. NOW everything will have to be reordered. Special orders are a special headache!
The doors that we special ordered a few months ago also had to be reordered twice because of a mistake. Sigh........ sigh... sigh... Home Depot is very good about getting things reordered for you but it's frustrating to have to do it over and over again.
However, this evening two of my elementary school buddies picked me up and we went out for a bite to eat. So I'm cheerful again. Unfortunately, I had two glasses of ice tea and the caffeine is keeping me up. Sheesh! Ah well... there's nothing like being with your friends to perk you up 100%
Let me modify that a bit. It perked me up 99.9%. I'll feel 100% when our orders arrive correctly.
