Good Morning!

I'm on my second cup of strong, hot, black coffee... and prioritizing all the things so I have a game plan of what I want to accomplish today.  So. Much. On. The. List.

Random Thoughts Over Morning Coffee:

It's Halloween Weekend but after moving to this house years ago, we realized no one really goes door to door trick-or-treating here.  The houses are a bit far apart and set way back on steep driveways.  Also, most tend to do 'trunk or treat' at churches instead.  

We haven't had a trick-or-treater in years.

I don't suppose this year will be any different.

As a 'meh' Halloween person anyway, I'm happy about this.  After going all-out for Halloween for a couple decades with the kids, once they were out of the nest, I happily made Halloween another non-holiday for me. 

Orders/Deliveries:  Regular readers know how I despise online ordering and deliveries due to the anxiety now involved.  Packages missing, lost, stolen, ripped open and rifled through... ugh.  Under Biden we now have shortages of product, inflated prices and no employees as they were all so 'stimulated' that no one wants to hold an honest-to-goodness job anymore.

So I buy most our things myself but once in while I do have to place an order, and hope for the best.

I have a Christmas gift that was due to be delivered last Tuesday.  It is still 'pending' from the large retailer it was ordered from.  Not shipped.  Not delivered. Not even fulfilled.

The frustration is wondering if I should find it elsewhere and order a second one now? 

With my luck, as soon as I find another and order it, I'll get a notification the first was shipped and I'll have two of them. I don't need nor want two - it's not an item anyone could use two of. 

I have another order I placed that includes 3 of the same item (again - for Christmas gifts).  I got notification that (1) was shipped yesterday.  Hmm.  Three of the same item and yet only one shipped.  LOL.

Oh goodness.... it's going to be an interesting year for Christmas gifts.  :)
