It's been long day dealing with a program issue at work since first thing this morning. I talked to one of the IT guys at the end of the work day yesterday and then he was working on the issue most all of the day today. I think I talked to him on the phone at least 4 times. Finally it is resolved (with only 90 minutes left of my word day) and the program is working correctly for me again.
After work yesterday dh and I drove into the city to pick up a large order at Walmart. I plan to go see my mom on Sunday and will stop at pick up another large order. This should have us fairly well "extra" stocked up. We've gradually had what I've stocked up on eaten up and I haven't been really good this past couple of months of replacing. In fact, my last 2 shopping trips were smaller orders and just enough to eat in between trips, plus we've had guests almost 2 weeks of the past 4 and ate out a lot, so I didn't buy much food. It was time to get serious of having several months worth of food again, or at least 2 months worth for some food/supplies, more for others. I'm kind of tempted to maybe try doing a pick up order from Albertsons....I tried that one time a year or so ago, when they first started offering it, and like an hour or two before I was supposed to pick up the order they canceled it on me, saying they were short on staff. I'm wondering if it's better now. Might be worth a try with just a smaller type of order, that way if they cancel on me again, it won't be much of a big inconvenience.
Supposedly Pottery Barn has finally shipped the desk......but it's in the mysterious in between their distribution center and the final shipping carrier stage. I logged in yesterday and it said your order has arrived at the local carrier and ready to schedule a delivery appointment. I called PB and they connected me to the local carrier, who says no, they have not received it yet (shipped like 3 weeks ago now). If this thing ever shows up I'll be amazed. It's only been 6 months now.
Walmart ended up substituting me white bread for the wheat bread and I guess they don't let you decline substitutions when they bring the groceries out anymore. Or at least that's what the kid told me, he said I'd have to go inside to customer service. It used to be every time I ordered it saved my preferences for no subs, but I guess it's not doing that anymore either. So, I guess we'll be eating some white bread for awhile and I'll be freezing some. I'm going to use some tonight and make french toast for dinner. And I'll try again for getting the honey wheat bread we normally eat on the next shopping trip.
