It’s been a very long day today. We starting working at 8:00 am and called it a night at 10:30 pm.
I was assured that flowers would be at the workshop by NOON today. They didn’t arrive. We kept wondering when they were coming. At 4:40, I received a call from my husband that when he came home from work there were six boxes of flowers baking in the hot sun at our front door since 10:30 this morning, at 92 degrees! These flower brokers had our work address!
So it was On the phone again for me today to the first wholesaler. They re-shipped, for the third time, to cover their replacements for the wrong flowers that they sent. Those are due in tomorrow, priority.
The second flowers shipper got it wrong, too. They had to re-ship and that shipment didn’t arrive at all.
My husband brought the shipment from home, and we opened the boxes. The wedding’s color scheme is white, champagne, creamy blush, and pale sandy peach. Most of what was in the box were orange and orange, yellows. Not able to use!@
Finally, after all the phone calls to get things corrected, we prayerfully are expecting all of the right ones to come in tomorrow.
Other than a few burnt fingers from hot glue, and having to call a repairman for the breakdown of the lift on the refrigerator truck, we are doing fairly well.
Tomorrow is a super long day. We will work
in the workshop all morning and afternoon, then go after that to The Martha Washington Inn to begin hauling supplies.
Here is a short video clip of the day shift at work.
