I arrived at the store a bit before 10. Called in to one company to report a few damaged items from an order that arrived last week. Made ‘coming soon’ signs to put in the windows and on the door; and put flyers with the new store info in a pocket on the door.
Then I started painting. After painting the back and one side wall, I moved the bins of product that needs to go home to storage (for fall shows) to a spot right by the door so I had more working room to start unpacking the boxes that arrived the day before.
Uh-oh!!! I hear the UPS truck in the parking lot! Maybe he’s delivering to someone else today. But he stops right in front of my store. I pop out and he tells me he has NINETEEN more boxes for me today!! It took him a few minutes to compile them all and I dashed inside and pulled a table forward to the spot where the bins were earlier to make room for the delivery.
Oh dear! Oh my!!! And I also had a car full of stuff to bring in!
It seemed like a good idea at the time! It was looking like Michael was not going to be able to bring the trailer full of stuff to the store until Sunday. So, I decided to take what I could (small stuff that didn’t stack well in the trailer) to the store each day to make room in the trailer for the other big stuff that is in a storage shed.
Alas, just after UPS left, Michael called to tell me he was done for the day. Did I want him to go ahead and bring the trailer now??? ACK!!! I had been bugging him to bring it as soon as possible. But then I wasn’t expecting all these orders to arrive until next week. I probably should have had him wait, but I didn’t.
So, that’s 19 more boxes, one car load and one trailer load of stuff!
So much for being organized!!! Good thing I have a month to straighten all this out!
