In the interest of everyone understanding the previous week and that most of you probably believe someone buried me in the woods somewhere, let's talk.
So, my week started out with not feeling fabulous. It got better around Wednesday when I was hit with a total flu. I think I might have been fighting it off for a few days, because I was kind of feeling off on Monday, and Tuesday I was totally just feeling blech. By Wednesday I had a fever, chills, and felt rotten. This progressed til mid Friday or so-ish, where I felt better, but managed to - while sick - do things like half answer emails, not flag things for follow up - because trying to do my spellwork when I do feel well (which happened here and there and which is exactly what I do every time I'm sick,) is paramount to answering email. So, I managed to finally get some rest, feel better, and start the overwhelming task of answering hundreds of emails and figure out where I'm missing what, and then what did I do? I fell down a flight of marble stairs. Yes, that's right, I fell ass over elbow down a flight of freaking marble stairs. Undeterred, I tried to work anyhow, but then managed to trip on my laptop cord, and fuck up my laptop. By this point, I assumed I was cursed or something, so I called some occultist friends (who felt no curse) jumped in a ritual bath and washed my home out with spiritual wash.
Lucky for me, I have a friend (more than one, but one in particular this time) who could repair the damage to my laptop. Unlucky for me, then my email reader program had to be reset....I'm not even sure how that's related to the damage I did, but I can say with some certainty that more than one program on here was f'd, just that's the only one to do with business that mattered. Soooo, I'm going to have to set up some different stuff on the site to streamline a few emails/consults/customer service stuff (forensically going through what I do have isn't awesome, and I can send people to the right places/forms) as a lot of them get deleted off of the server after a few days...which wouldn't be a huge issue if I wasn't already so behind on some replies.
What can you do? CHECK BACK HERE. I will have links to guide you to all the right places as I set up the site. Please follow instructions and fill out the forms. DO NOT SEND ME REPETITIVE REMINDERS! DO NOT SEND ME MESSAGES BUT WAIT FOR THE FORMS, PLEASE, UNLESS I AM ALREADY REPLYING TO YOUR THREAD. If I can streamline the process of getting back to everyone it will go SO MUCH FASTER, and it won't be hard to do. Also what else can you do? Kindly do not take your frustration at this situation out on me. I am super frustrated with it...and one thing I know about this job is that even one day off means three catching up. I am going to try to make sure this situation doesn't take that long to fix if I can....so let me streamline the process with a little online editing and form making. :D
Thanks everyone for understanding. I'm not dead yet, I do kind of look like I fought a bear a little bit, but no concussion or broken bones, or death, and I'm now working on a much faster PC. :D
