Better Wednesday

No mouse sightings which always makes it a good day. Turned in my article. A client voluntarily, without my asking, told me that my monthly retainer is being raised starting in October. Heard back from my City Councilwoman's aide who I think is being very responsive about the power outages. So all in all, things are looking up a bit.

Sent flowers to someone today and I like to find a local florist and call them directly. My feeling is that some anonymous FTD order gets short shrift. So in this town, there were three florists. One seemed too fancy and snobby; one seemed too country kitschy and one seemed just right. Of course, I spent time studying each web site.

I could write a book of things that annoy me, and one of them happened today. I call this florist around 10:30 am and get this recorded message about the store hours and how I should call back during the store hours. IT IS THE FRIGGING STORE HOURS RIGHT NOW. I was going to call a different florist, but I decided to give this one another chance so I called 30 minutes later and got a nice woman.

Not much else happening.
