The books from our Usborne group order arrived and my friends, Amy, Kat, and Tracy (who laid on my couch with her hurt hip and crunched numbers) came right over to help sort and double check the order sheets.
We’ve got everyone sorted and I’m just working on sorting out a few mistakes the publisher made and a few orders that had out of print or out of stock books. Soon everyone will get their shipping totals and books will be sailing off to their happy new homes!
It’s been so much fun to see what everyone ordered; take a peep at books I hadn’t yet seen in person, and add to my ever growing wishlist. We learned a thing or two running this group order, and hopefully if I can gear up to do another group order in a few months, things will go a little more smoothly.
The publisher’s catalog is a little different than the Usborne consultant catalog so we ended up needing to place two separate orders. One direct to the publisher as planned, and one through my consultant site, and then both orders had some errors… It’s all good though, I’ve just about got it all worked out – thanks to countless hours of help from my wonderful friends. Me and my crumtastic math skills never could have done this all on my own.
Speaking of crumtastic math skills, did you know that it’s after 1 in the morning? I did not. A shaky grasp of arthimatic also seems to include a really wacked out sense of time in general, at least for me. I’m always so surprised when a) it’s five hours later than I thought it was, and b) realize I haven’t eaten anything since noon. Or what I thought was noon and was really more like ten. Ha. Going to find some yogurt and those delicious chocolate covered pomegranate nuggets I found at Sam’s Club (because those are super healthy, right?) and tuck myself into bed.
