It’s been quite some time since I posted to this blog. It’s been a wild time for me as I’ve been very busy trying to fill impossible positions. There is certainly nothing easy about the work I do. Some days I feel totally burned out. Like today, for example.
Last week, we had a court date in Small Claims Court, trying to get our money out of a client that hired someone I presented, under the table. Everything I stated and proved, he denied. So now, we go to trial. I hate this. Maybe it’s time to get out of the business.
To top it all, I had sold my china cabinet which meant that the contents of same were all over the place – in boxes on the floor etc. I took a lot of time scouring the internet. I looked in both eBay and Kijiji. I was starting to feel defeated. Finally, yesterday I took the bull by the horns and set up a couple of appointments to see a wall unit and a china cabinet. The wall unit was a piece of crap. The china cabinet had possibilities but you could tell it was not a quality piece.
I felt depressed. We drove towards home and decided to hit Brampton Galleries. We’ve bought from them before and been happy with the quality of their stock. We were not disappointed this time, either. There, in a back room stood the china cabinet with my name on it. It was perfect. Clean lines. Mahogany. Lovely. Bingo, bango, we bought it and am now anxiously awaiting for Wednesday to come as they are delivering it to us then.
