Unrelated to me asking for a raise, UPS shows up later afternoon yesterday with something for me from my boss. It was a little box with a $100 Amazon gift card and a nice card appreciating me. Oh gosh, LOL. Well, I thanked her very much.....but still glad I asked for a raise. (the gift card was sent out before I asked). And honestly, probably the only real reason she sent me one is because the week before, when I was posting our company American Express bill and figuring out what charges get assigned to what category there was this charge for over $2000 to Amazon that I had no receipt for, so I asked her what it's for. Something that large could have been a fixed asset and not an office supplies expense. She said it was for some gift cards they ordered to have on hand to give out to customers and employees as appreciation. So, me knowing what they are for is probably why she then thought she should send me one, haha. (though I certainly didn't expect one).
Monday is mom's 81st birthday. The other day she asked me if any birthdays are coming up and as I started to say "well, yours is" she said well, other than mine. I'm thinking good - she remembers her birthday is soon. Then she says what am I going to be? late 90's? No haha, only 81! I think later today I'll make a batch up cupcakes for her birthday and run a dozen into her tomorrow afternoon and surprise her.
I'm so confused by this order we placed a couple of weeks ago. It was a bunch of car wash supplies dh wanted. It was a big order and they showed shipping it out in 3 tracking#'s. Two of the packages showed up last weekend and the 3rd (per Fedex updates) showed it was damaged and it transit back to the shipper, which they got back earlier this week. Dh and I went through what we ordered and what arrived so we'd know what was still needing to ship to us. About 3 or 4 items. Then yesterday afternoon I get a shipping confirmation email from the company and it shows 3 new tracking #'s and then says "items shipped on 4/29" and lists the whole order again! Did they accidentally just ship out his whole order again? I guess we'll see when it all gets here!
Do any of you have a food dehydrator and if so what things do you use it for? and what type of containers do you store the dehydrated food in?
Weather report shows mostly chance of rain today, so I guess dh won't be doing his first mow of the season yet. The lawn is ready to mow, but we've just been getting some rain almost every day. Maybe tomorrow, it's looking better.
