If you're my friend on Facebook, you've already had a taste of the crap that's been going on in my neck of the woods for the past 48 hours. If you're not my Facebook friend, allow me to enlighten you.
Remember way back when, and a few times since, when I mentioned I was getting a new blog design for my birthday?
Well...that turned out to be a pipe dream.
My blog designer came to me highly recommended from Mamarazzi.
I debated whether or not I should do a big, long ranty post about my horrible experience, but in the end, my logic took hold of my emotions, and I decided to be sensible about the whole thing. So as not to be accused of public slander, I will not mention her name, link to her site, or share any of the details publicly. Privately, on the other hand...is another story. Let me know if you want the WHOLE STORY. I will gladly share.
After 6 months of waiting, and finally reaching my breaking point, I resorted to doing something I don't very often allow myself to do.
I commited an EWI. Emailing While Infuriated. (Not to be confused with BWI...BLOGGING While Infuriated.)
This resulted in my inevitable demise. This morning I was fired. Well, technically she quit, but ya know. Roon is kicking himself. He, after all, could have done it all himself since he speaks fluent HTML, and was just trying to do something nice for my birthday.
The future of my blog design is in limbo right now. I have contacted a custom designer that I LOVE, and have used before, and I am in the process of getting a quote from him now. Once the terms have been set, I will most likely have the finished product in less than a month. My last project from him took less than 2 weeks, start to finish. Once I have that in hand, Roon will do all the necessary coding, button making, so on and so forth.
Frankly, I'm excited about this new development. While I feel horrible for how everything played out, I am relieved to know that it's finally over with. With Roon doing my install, I know it will work in ALL browsers, and there will be no more waiting for anything. I love having a computer genius in the house!
If you would like more information...let me know. I'd be happy to share privately.
Now, onto happier things!
Have you noticed what day it is?!
It's October 15th, and you know what that means...
Now, I'm a total slacker, and still haven't finished Evelyn's prize package from last month (You still love me, right?), but this month will be much faster moving. Instead of leaving it open for 5 days, it will only be open for 3 whole days, so I can get the package(s) ready to ship out BEFORE I leave on my Spa Getaway vacation.
Yes, I am excited!
So...let's get right down to the nitty gritty, shall we?
WAIT! I did want to mention that if you have already won in the past, you can enter again, and give me a different last name to use. Could make an excellent Christmas gift...I'm just sayin'
This month's quote is:
