As soon as I got off my conference call, I did. The conference call was scheduled for noon via Hangouts. Gmail, Google Plus and Hangouts all went down about 11:15 and came back up about 11:57. My brother was late initiating the call and had some convoluted excuse - I let him get to the end and then told him that it had all been down and his exposed butt had been covered anyway!
Before the conference call, I killed most of the morning getting the audible book onto the iPod shuffle. iTunes just works my last nerve. It took about 10 times longer than it should have but I finally got it done and I think I can replicate the success next time, if I like the book listening.
The bed caper now has the possibility of turning out better than if there had not been any issues. Today, the manager offered me a free pillow or a free ($130) mattress cover so I'll have one to use when I wash the other. Very nice. And... I had wanted tan or brown upholstery and Matt had discouraged that saying it would take too long. The store manager said that brown would take a while but tan would not add any days to the delivery.
And... best of all... I have a confirmed (by Matt and by the store manager) delivery date of 8:30 February 10 and I have a confirmation on the elevator reservation. Yes, it's all done. Nothing more to do but wait until the 10th. End. Of. Drama. At least til the 10th.
Crap dela crap. I just had to change an appointment and changed it to a time when I had something else! I do nothing all day long day after day how in the fuck can I have 3 things that conflict?????
But, when I picked up my bread, I bought myself one of those delicious cookies. I'm saving it for after dinner.
