Today is the beginning of the Team EFA Birthday Bash.  Use code "WORLD" to get 20% off participating stores, including A Wonderful World.  This is a great time to start on that Christmas shopping, since Christmas is only 100 days away.  Speaking of which, place orders at A Wonderful World by December 1, 2008 to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

I will not have computer access September 21-28, 2008.  Any orders placed at A Wonderful World will take up to a week longer to ship than normal.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

So Sorry.

I must apologize to everyone who faithfully reads this blog. Between the inturruption Hurricane Gustav caused in my daily routine, and some increadible stress in my day job, I haven't updated this blog in a week, or responded to any comments. I really do apologize, but a new week is here, and I hope to do better. Onward and upward...

I am participating in the Etsy for Animals Team Birthday Bash at A Wonderful World. In celebration of the Team's birthday, from September 15-30, shops on the team will be accepting a coupon good for 20% off your entire purchase! Use code "WORLD" when checking out with A Wonderful World, or any store accepting the coupon. Check out the instructions on how to use your discount, and look for stores participating in the EFA Birthday Bash. The store with top sales will have $50 donated to their favorite animal charity. (My chosen charity in Big Cat Rescue.) Check it out and help the animals!

Dodging the Bullet

Happy Labor Day everyone!  So far, we seem to be dodging the Gustav bullet here on my part of the coast.  Alot of rain and some tornado warnings, but nothing terrible.  Keep south Louisianna in your thoughts.

I had planned to blog today about my complete giddiness over the start of college football, and to wish my beloved Crimson Tide the best against Clemson Saturday night in prime time.  However, Mother Nature had other plans. You see the text up there that says 2AM Tuesday?  That's me, living under that text.  We're used to hurricanes here on the Gulf Coast, but boy are they a hassle.  As you can see, there's still a great deal of uncertainty about where Hurricane Gustav will end up, what size it will be, and how it will effect us.  It is a weird thing, knowing the damage a storm can cause, but at the same time hoping that that damage will be inflicted a few hundred miles east or west of you so you don't take a direct hit.  Then sending supplies and helping hands to those same folks in the aftermath.

As a result of the impending storm, some operations at A Wonderful World may be interrupted in the next week.  If our power is knocked out for some period of time, shipping will be delayed.  (For a frame of reference, our power was out for a full week after Katrina, and a couple of days after Ivan).  Notepads are still on sale through Sunday the 31st, but if I have problems with computer access, I will continue to honor the discount on orders placed until I can update the prices.  I will apologize in advance for any delays or problems, and at the same time hope that there will be no delays or problems. 

Having lived down here all of my life, I have been through many storms, and tend to take things in stride.  Having said that, I do ask you to keep the Gulf Coast in your thoughts.  Today also happens to be the third anniversary of Katrina.  The pictures you have seen in New Orleans pale in comparison to the utter destruction that occurred in southern Mississippi and Alabama, and these people are still trying to get back to a normal life. Here's to hoping that it doesn't happen again for a long time.

Don't Miss Out!

This is the last week of the sale on these cute notepads at A Wonderful World.  Save 30% until  September 1.

And an update from Friday -- we broke down and bought the Wii.  Once I talked my husband into wanting one, that was the end of it.  My arms are sore from boxing with him last night.

My Newest Obsession

I have decided that I officially want a Wii.   What does a 32 year old woman with one husband, one cat, no children, and an XBOX 360 system belonging to said husband want with a Wii, you might ask?  I'm asking myself the same thing.  I mean, between working full time, running A Wonderful World, keeping house, providing food for said husband and kitty, etc. etc., it's not like I'd have time to play with it.  And the money, quite frankly, could be put to more appropriate uses, like a responsible adult should.
But I keep hearing how neat the Wii Fit is, and I would like to shake up my workout routine.  Of who am I kidding?  I'd just like to HAVE a workout routine.  And seeing this litte guy brings back all of those nostalgic moments playing for hours with my little sister during my teenage years, beating the pants off her 9 year old butt.  Ahh, good times, good times.
It doesn't help matters that my husband wants every piece of electronics mentioned on cnet, and can list reasons a mile long of why and how I can get the Wii.  So in the end I will probably break down and buy it.  And feel guilty about it.  And probably sell it on ebay in a year after I'm bored with it.  Sigh.
