I couldn’t get to sleep last night, finally dozing off after 1am. I’m sure it had a lot to do with the impromptu nap I took earlier in the evening. 🙄
Except for finding a tick on me, yesterday was a decent day. I worked hard in WLF yesterday as I started to pull apart a large pile of debris that lays in the far reaches of WLF. I also managed to finish cutting off four sections of the downed pine tree and rolling them to the western edge of the plot where they can rot in peace; there is still about twenty feet left to cut up and move. 😮
Yesterday I brought Beyond burger patties to Betsy’s and we had cheeseburgers with tater tots and salad for not “Top Chef” night dinner. We have completed watching last year’s “Top Chef All Stars 2” and the latest season of “Top Chef” is not yet available on Hulu, so we watched the first episode of “Only Murders in the Building” — a new Hulu series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez — instead.
My gripe for the day is with shopping, no not having to save money, but instead delivery. Yesterday I mentioned that today I need to return to the FedEx Office store on Ponce to pick up my IKEA package. I was going to hit Lowe’s first, but because I fell asleep so late I also slept later than I desired and therefore may not hit up the hardware store for more dirt, um, compost.
On Tuesday Bonnie sent me a link to the MLS Store where they are selling past-year Atlanta United merchandise at a discount. The 2019 jersey I bought was $29, and then I noticed that is I spent $49 I would get free shipping. No problem! I added a discounted hat and discounted scarf to my order bringing me to $57. I’m good at shopping… With a $2 “handling fee” 😡 and sales tax, my order came to about $65, okay… I was then thrilled to see a Pay with ApplePay button because that would make it a one click purchase, no need to enter address and credit card info! Woot! And then I saw that I was charged $74. What? Somehow in the checkout process I was automatically “upgraded” to expedited shipping for $9. NO! NO! NO! Firstly, the whole reason I added more than the jersey to the cart was to get free shipping. Secondly, without expedited shipping my order wouldn’t be shipped until tomorrow, and thus delivered next week at earliest, which is what I wanted. I could find no way to cancel the order. According to the first email my package is due to arrive today, which is okay. But according to the second email it will be delivered tomorrow, which is not okay since as you will read then, I will not be at home. Dangen!
Okay, it’s nearly 8am, well past the time at which I need to be productive. Have a great day. Stay healthy.
