honest...the train derailed

plain and simple
i hate excuses
so now what...

i'd been working for weeks
to get this special birthday gift finished
i ordered a new album
in plenty of time
yet it was not here
on the day i expected it
this has never happened before
then i opened my email

I've always wondered if something like this actually happens.

I have some Stampin' Up sets I'd like to sell... any idea where I might find a place for them?

Thanks
