Trevor had a hockey game this morning (they won!) and Sarah, Grandma, and I all went. It was great but I am still trying to get warm. Hockey is a cold sport for the spectators! It could be worse I guess, the soccer mom's had cold AND rain! When we returned home, I went upstairs to work on the Exploding Envelopes Box pattern and Sarah went to make some Easy Mac mac and cheese. She popped it in the microwave and came upstairs to put the return address labels on the last of the kits to go out.
I raced downstairs to a kitchen full of smoke and a lump of charcoal in my microwave....Sarah forgot the water for the mac and cheese! Out came the fans to clear the smoke! It's cleared now but it caused yet another delay in getting this pattern out to you all. I so appreciate all your patience!!!! The last of the kits are in the mail! I am still trying to start getting the patterns shipping tonight. Because of the volume you all ordered (thank you!!) It's probably going to take about 4 hours to get them out, so I will start tonight and finish in the morning....aaargggh! I hate to be late!
I did go through a bit of a reality check. I looked at the calender and realized that there is one more weekend between now and Halloween than I thought, so.... I am going to go ahead and move the Exploding Box haunted House to Friday the 15th (that's only 2 days later than planned!). Monday is a Postal holiday so it will also mean that most of you will have your kit in time for class. Rather than putting the Bats in the Belfry on that Saturday The 16th), I am going to move it to the following weekend (Oct 22/23). It gives me the breathing room to get the sample finished and the kits shipped EARLY. The kits will go up sometime on Monday. I will get Ustream and Ning schedule updated as soon as I can.
Once again, I thank you all for your patience!!
