    LOL. It always happens. I have a week "off" and then everyone needs a little something. Everyone is totally cool mind you, but I'm getting stuff like, "I love the photo, but can you make my hair blonder? I'm getting highlights before the wedding" and "can you bring my waist in a bit more, I've lost weight since the bridal".
    And photo orders. They all waited until now.
    Dang, I was really wanting to just read a good book this week. :)

    Counting Blessings for sure!
    Here is the latest (ten minutes ago) phone call.

    "I love the photos. I though you said you were going to send a disc. Did I get that right?"

    "Yes, absolutely. You should definately have it by now. The address you told me to send it to was: xxxxx"

    "Oh! I'm so SORRY!!!! We just moved! The new address is: xxxx"

    Ugg. This is the third this month just like that. Wrong mail to addy. And I call them first. Meanwhile, when I track the shipment, someone named Skipper, or Hunter, or Buba at the old addy has already signed for the shipment. Not likely to forward it on. Uggg, Ugg, Ugg!

    I feel your pain Jodie. My office looks much the same.
    Only diff is, I make the albums for them, and they can change them. Saves a ton of headache. Last thing I want is some person from 3 years ago to pop in with album requests in June. :)

    I should take a photo of my office too. It's crazy. I mean nutso. Hold on, I'll do it now. LOL. You gotta see this crap to believe it.

    I have a very nice sales office....However, a few feet away....hidden from general consumption is my dungeon....err...office.
    This is where I spend 10-16 hours of my life per day. Be warned. This is Halloween stuff here. LOL. You will see it as it is, without any prettying. It's a mess. And yes, I smoke like a frieght train.

    Hah, you call that a mess? Pffft! There are still surface areas where one can see the top of the desk.

    Looks nice and bright and well-organized.

    Killer great! I'm one of their "sponsers" for ads and stuff. I make a crapload of money from Collages from the site. I love it!
