The Business Diaries: The Pantry Edition
This post could also be title, "Just in case you think I have it all together..." Last weekend, I woke up on Sunday morning early and I had a few hours to do some work. ¬†I wrote two posts and I was still feeling pretty fresh. ¬†You know, like I really had it all together. The night before I had edited all of the new product photos and when it was time to actually enter all the information and pictures into the site, I knew I was too tired to do it accurately. ¬†So, I held off. ¬†Now, with this new found time I realized I could get all of that information entered. I had a bunch of new items to enter and I had to come up with a category name for them. ¬†I wasn't really sure what to name it and then decided that since it included things like mustards, nuts, pancake mixes (yes, I know they are currently sold out - sorry!), I would name the category "Pantry". I was feeling a sense of accomplishment and went on my way for the day. ¬†When I got to my desk on Monday there was an email from a reader that she really didn't understand what I meant by "Pantry". ¬†Admittedly I was dismissive of the message because it seemed so obvious to me. ¬†Of course, "Pantry"meant those food items you would put in your pantry. Then, there was another email from the same reader that said it had a picture enclosed. ¬†I admit, I may have rolled my eyes. ¬†What was she sending a picture of? ¬†I opened it and realized it was a screen grab of our new "Pantry" pages. Only after a few seconds did I realized I did not name this category "Pantry". I had actually name it Panty. Yup, Finding Home is apparently selling underwear these days. Dear reader - thank you for having a sense of humor and for taking the time to let me know. ¬†Thank you for having, in your own words, "a tendency to edit". ¬†Maybe I should bring you on a consultant for any future Sunday morning writing when I am feeling "fresh". Please note, if you want to order anything from our shop, for guaranteed delivery for Christmas your order must be placed by December 16th. ¬†We have seen some really slow deliveries in certain regions and we are all the mercy of our delivery carriers. ¬†We will continue to accept orders until the 20th, they are just not guaranteed. ¬† Any orders after the 20th will be delivered after January 1st. ¬† Also, if you are wanting to buy pancake / waffle mix, we won't have more in until the end of the week. ¬†We will do our best to get orders to you, but all of the above details apply.
