Some Where Over the Rainbow....

Please, just let me survive the next 2 weeks with my sanity. Please oh please oh please.

Let me tell you folks - new lines are a pain in the ass. Whenever manufacturers put out new product it ain't a walk in the park. Nope, not at all.

Yesterday I left the house at 8:15am. Had to get to the bank and be in a spot for our team conference call by 9:00am. I had a 9:30 appointment (hey, a girl has to keep her hair pretty) and then the race began. I hit 7 stores and covered over 200 miles. I got my ass chewed on more yesterday than I ever have (either business or pleasure). Damn. I swear these people think that I purposely screwed up their shipments, like it was planned. Like I have nothing better to do than come to their stores, fill out a shitload of paperwork, appease customers and then turn around in a week and show up again (with a strong possibility that I'll be doing exactly what I did the first time!).

I finally got to the house at around 10:30 last night. I then spent 2 hour checking specifications and foam quantities and sending out emails. The alarm went off at 6:00am and I'm at it again today.

I usually forward my cell phone to the house so that my customers don't get my voicemail when I'm doing office work. I didn't do that last night. The night before I had customers calling at 9:30 at night. WTF?!?! Don't they realize I have a life too?!?! (OK - maybe I don't but I sure do want one!!)

SO......that's what's going on. Today is visits to warehouses, issues with new stores and lots and lots of driving. Hoping to be home early enough to have a real dinner (last night was 3 Krispy Kreame donuts and a cup of decaf coffee) and a chance to get a few things done around the house.

Focus, Tammi, Focus.

Watch the Crispy Kremes. They show up where you don't want them, too.

Too late - AC - way too late! :-(

"Let me tell you folks - new lines are a pain in the ass"

You poor thing.
