happy bubble fairy

ob-la-di ob-la-da, life goes oooo-on!

Yesterday got worse. Lots worse. Utterly filled with rejection, frustration and disappointment - about as much as you can stuff in one day without someone close to you dying or developing cancer.

Then it did one of those abrupt, unexpected turn-arounds and handed me solutions and resolutions to just about everything in the span of about two hours. Also, I got yards of gorgeous (purple!) material for a fabulous price to decorate my fair booth with. (The old table-coverings were starting to show the fact that they'd had seven years of hard use...) And someone remembered a piece I had hanging in my Gulliver's show last October and emailed me wishing to buy it, if it was still available (which it is).

Email is working again, and I've (only!) got 221 emails to get through.

Site stuff and calendars to work on today. The weekend will be finishing the calendar and - *glee* - getting PA ready to unveil. Are you PA folks ready with lots of new general adoption pieces? :)

Coding blah blah...


I have figured out how to set my cart up to actually calculate shipping intelligently, which will save me eons of effort and lots of follow-up and/or losing money on shipping larger orders with heavy stuff. Wholesale orders, even! Oo! It will take a little bit of work, though, probably several days of 'acking' and 'oh-crap-what'd-I-do' and consequent fixing, so I have reined myself back on it for the moment. Nice to know I'll be able to, though. And how to! After calendars and PS site and PA. And emails.

I made some more adjustments to the lilypad, and impressed myself with my cleverness in deciphering code. A real php coder would laugh and mock me, but I'm proud anyway.

The matting services page is finished and ready to go up on the first. Note to self, remember to announce it! So much is happening this month that it would be easy to forget it...

I have a whole weekend to myself, and I'm not sure what to do with it - Jake is driving down to Homer with Matt to pick up his yurt. Avoid yellowjackets, and work, probably. The fair starts a week from today, so I've got a ton to do.

Best go do it. Bad Ellen, wasting time on LJ!


My site and email just went down again, because:

There has apparently been another power outage at the datacenter. One of the generators caught fire and they were taken offline. We’re waiting for more information and we’ll post here as soon as we here anything.

I guess that's a sign that it's time for lunch.
