WEDNESDAY 6/12/19

Post by Tamara » Wed Jun 12, 2019 8:06 am

Happy Hump day and a great Wednesday to you!
Still holding our breath on the passport. IF it is not here n=by the end of the day....no trip for DH. WE had it all taken care of, it was in printing yesterday afternoon. He called and they said it was in the mail room. Happy dance. oh not so fast. Then DH gets and email last night that says his passport has been mailed and he should receive it on June 17th. What the heck??????? Please, please, please tell me that the email was a mistake. They gave him a tracking number that is locatable right now and as you all know by the time you can check a USPS tracking it has already been delivered. So if someone messed up in the mail room we are not going to be happy about it.
Making a few more candy bar holders today and finishing DD knotty bows sewing. Packing things for the retreat tomorrow. It will be a little of everything.
Happy Wednesday!

Crossing my fingers for Tom.

Getting ready to head out to the grocery store for supplies. Got a message today from a retailer that is in need of more treats and a market customer wanting a couple of bags of sweet potatoes. I will most likely visit the new Hobby Lobby while I'm out. Baking this afternoon but want to start on the layout I have scrapped in my head some time today too. We'll see how it goes.

Crossing my fingers over the passport, too. Jan, hope the baking went quickly so you could scrap.

Need to go home and work on some items for mothers day/father day for church (yes, I do realize I am a little behind on the mothers day items :lol: ). We will see how far I get tonight.

Well apparently the trip for Tom wasn't in the cards. lost $$$ and kids are sad. It has really just been one big mess. I hate to say it but government employees are so stupid!!! At least the ones in the passport office. They have assured him all last week that they are well aware of his trip date. Then why the H did they NOT send it overnight like they were suppose too? It has been a frustrating few days. we have exhausted all channels. Some how his application had to of gotten lost in the shuffle. They were suppose to expedite it in May and here we are cancelling the whole shebang. They have had it for over five weeks! The hotel lady is being a jerk and will only give us half the money back. The international flight charged us $200 to cancel. The SLC to LA flight was a one way ticket so we lost all but $89. The southwest ticket from LA to SLC next Tues we will only get half back. What a costly Mistake!! Ouch!! :geek: It could of all been prevented if the Passport office would of really checked into it when he called. It wasn't until Monday that a lady stepped it up to locate it. Then get it to printing and the mailroom. Obviously the mailroom screwed up and all they said is that we could file a complaint. Really???? Who is even going to care at this point? Don't know if he'll get his money back on the mario kart activity. He was suppose to watch the grandkids while their parents went to do it. Hopefully they will be safe if left alone for a couple of hours.

And to top it off I have DIL mad at me now. she posted pics of our five year old at his first baseball game last night. Our son is in China and said he was sad he missed it. I said we were sad too because no one told us where or when. She deleted my comment. I'm sure she it wasn't up to her expectations for her post. Her friends might see it after all.
