I'm never one for looking at Mondays as "rough days" but yesterday was an stereotypical Monday alright. Everything I touched didn't work. Computer, mailing list, printing deliveries, sign inquiries- NOTHING worked properly so I did what every red blooded American girl does: I went shopping! Bought a new printer, coffee pot, office supplies and more stock for the shop. Ok THEN I felt better!
Today was full. Go to the lumber yard. Smoot's did indeed have the picture rail I was looking for. Go get paint for said picture rail. Sherwin Williams again mixed my paint and had me out the door in ten minutes flat. I do love that Falls Church location! Wander aimlessly looking for picture rail hooks and long necked light bulbs (but that is another story!) Write store documents while being on hold/"communicating" with VERIZON employees for 74 minutes withOUT getting my issue resolved. Handle tons of correspondence. Start to panic when I realize how soon Monday morning is! Prime and paint picture molding with the help of my entire family and various artist neighbors. (Thanks Beth and Phil). Print more hang tags and wonder how many bugs I will have to sand off of my paint job in the morning before we install! By the end of the day I felt productive enough to make up for yesterday! Oh and the postcards got here. Turns out the trusty printing company transposed my address on the ups address level. *sigh* Good thing they got it right on the cards. Tomorrow: Hanging picture rail!
