Can you believe this? – I get lots of dumb email. Most of it is caught by the spam filter but once in a while something gets through. I received a notice of a class action suit again Godiva Chocolates. Seriously? Against a chocolate company? It piqued my curiosity so I opened it up. They are being sued because “they say” the chocolates are made in Belgium but maybe that’s not right. Who cares? It’s chocolate and it’s good. We are “sue happy” people these days.
It’s not just Godiva – I also received notice of a Zoom class action suit. So if I was on Zoom between certain dates, I can join it and receive $5. Woohoo.
Still on retail – Aside from acquiring cats, retail is one of my favorite therapies. It’s as good as Xanax. This past week I received a catalog through the mail from a woman’s clothing store. Figuring I needed a treat, I paged through, anxious to find something fun and usable. I can always use another sweat shirt. I found some lovely sweaters. I went on line and they were sold out. I tried another sweater, same thing. They were sold out of almost everything in the catalog. The catalog was new and wasn’t sitting around for weeks. It’s cruel to send someone a catalog of beautiful things that can’t be purchased. My pocketbook was happy though.
I hate a busy week – One thing I’ve enjoyed during the pandemic is an uncluttered calendar. This coming week is cluttered. Meeting up with friends twice (that’s a fun thing) and a series of doc appointments (just routine) spread over the week. Every. Single. Day. Some of these appointments were made six months ago. I don’t know how they all end up in the weeks before Christmas. Next year I’m declaring December a “No Doc” month.
Disappointment again – Over the last few weeks the forecasters predicted one unseasonably warm day each week. Really unseasonable, like bumping close to 70 degrees. I love that kind of weather. It is not meant to be. Each time the “warm” day was rainy, cloudy or windy. It was not a nice day to be out. Yesterday was in the mid-60s here but rainy and windy. Disappointing but I was glad it wasn’t cold and snowy. I don’t want snow until AFTER my kitchen renovation is done. The supply chain is so delicate that anything can cause a delay. A bird farting in the tree can delay something critical.
So how was your week?
