I have been wanting to blog about this or that going on in the shop and I just cannot get to sit down. And when I do, I feel sooooo tired……. I am excited now that I am feeling more refreshed and ready to go for the next 3 weeks. Starting this week we have to ship out 300 wine bottles every Friday for the next 3 weeks. I am excited and also scared because I do not know the outcome after this order. I do have a shop full of hardworking guys that I am enjoying getting to know.
This is me in the office putting mineral oil on 10 wine bottles that I forgot to send in the shipment last Thursday. We shipped out 550 wine bottles, well we were supposed to ship out 550. Turns out Thursday night I am sound asleep and I wake up thinking about the pallets we shipped, and started counting. Who does that? Apparently I do, but I kept counting and counting and thinking no you didn’t! But I did, I had a total of 480 wine bottles packaged on pallets and I thought “only need 60 more!” Of course my foreman Mark says, “April we have too many extra.” And I say, “no no we only need 60 more.” He obviously wasn’t counting either. When I woke up I realized “NO I NEEDED 70 MORE, NOT 60!” My heart is pounding in my chest that I have made this horrible mistake and how am I gonna fix it. I remembered the guy that picked up the pallets said they would either be driving them to Mississippi or they would go on a train. I could see myself running after the train, “STOP! STOP! I HAVE 10 MORE, JUST 10!” What an idiot I am! And when I have to email the Williams-Sonoma people they just say, “oh no problem, happens all the time!” I hope she wasn’t just being nice because hearing that gave me a peace beyond understanding. I am such a ball of emotions as Mr. Know-it-All would say.
