Ugh! I have never been so happy for a week to end!  Last week was just one fiasco after another, and US Bank took the cake for crappy customer service.  We always FedEx our mortgage payments to the bank, well in advance of the due date after a mishap when our mortgage was “serviced” by Chase.  So imagine my dismay when US Bank signed for the check, and then promptly LOST it.  Yup, and then the first customer rep I spoke with told me “too bad” and hung up on me.  Let’s just say that didn’t go over very well.  Oh, guys, did you forget that I’m the customer?  Anyway, that mess still hasn’t been cleared up to my satisfaction – hopefully things will be resolved Monday.

fter a frustrating week, I was very, very grateful to receive an assortment of great looking books.  I can hardly wait to get started on these!

I also took advantage of the sale at Bath and Body Works.  Dean gave me a gift card for my birthday, and I was able to score a ton of sale and clearance items!  I picked up an assortment of vanilla scented soaps and lotions, as well as 10 pair of their Shea Infused Socks.  These socks are so soothing and once I slip into a pair, I am relaxed and ready to snuggle up with a good book.  If you don’t own a pair, you owe it to your feet to get yourself some of these socks.

A great big thanks to the publishers for their continued support!

    Sorry about the totally dumb bank move. That’s crazy.

    Shadows on the Moon is quite the book. Above World is pretty fun. You got a lot of great books!

    That is an incredible stash you got in the mailbox.

    You are right- businesses frequently forget that we truly do not have to give them our business and forget good ole’ customer service. Too bad about the bank!
