Comical…busy…not so relaxing. Humor was definitely a must.
How about your start to the new year?
Over Christmas weekend my husband was ill. He asked me, “Why does it seem I am always sick at Christmas?” I don’t know. One time we spent Christmas Eve in the emergency room. He looked like something from a movie, like a swollen thing that had risen from the dead. It was nice.
The Christmas ailment was passed on to me. The night before last I was miserable with a fever. Mind you, I don’t get sick often. I sent a one line email to my sister, told her that I wasn’t feeling well, that I loved her. I proceeded to tell my husband, “In case I don’t live through the night, I love you.” He chuckled, “I think you will live.” I did. Amazing.
The next day I noticed product images missing from our website. I was too sick to try to fix the problem. My husband, not the one that keeps the site going (he helps in many other ways), was speechless. I opened a help ticket.
All of the product images in our online store had been deleted. Not one or two. Each and every one, gone.
I made a phone call on New Year’s Eve. All advanced support staff had left the building. Lucky souls.
Today I sat down at the computer, thinking to self, “This is what a small business owner does…the fix-it-all person…even on a holiday,” After several mis-haps I began to see a number of images load to the website. Yes! The correction will take a few days.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but I can say this, bring on the challenges. If 2011 is any better than 2010, we are blessed. After a few years of wondering where our lives were turning to, 2010 brought work and busyness our way. Bring it on!
I hope you and your loved ones are also blessed with whatever you need in 2011, that is, everything you need!
