Well, today is going to be a busy, busy, BUSY day! That is probably going to be the tone for the rest of the year it seems. (And maybe next year too!) I made some real progress on my next pattern yesterday and I hope to be cutting by tomorrow. (If only!) In order for that to happen, I need to really get my butt in gear and get some things done today.
But first, I have to take a ride to Yarmouth to do some shopping and return one of my keyboards. Some of you may remember that almost two weeks ago, my Logitech keyboard died. (I wrote a blog about it called Death of a Keyboard) I ran to Staples and purchased another one, as it was still under warranty, but Staples told me that I needed to talk to Logitech directly since it was nearly a year old. I needed a keyboard so I purchased another one (for about $119 with tax.)
When I called Logitech, they couldn’t have been better. After trying a couple of things, they just told me they would send me a new one. I didn’t even have to send the old one back! I thought that was great customer service. I had told them that I had purchased a keyboard to replace the old one and I asked if I could just swap them out and return the other one, or the new one in its place and they said that would be fine.
So yesterday, my new keyboard arrived. It was identical to what I had purchased, but since it was sent from the United States, it didn’t have the French translation on the box. The SKU was one number different too.
So now I don’t know what is going to happen. I left all the film and stickers on the new keyboard just in case, but I would think that they would want one where the seals aren’t even broken on the box. I don’t know if they will accept the new and unopened one without the French instructions. I would think that would be preferable than accepting an open box. Both of them have identical functions. I think it will be interesting to see what they do.
I figure the worse scenario will be that I keep both of them. That wouldn’t be tragic because I really like this keyboard a lot and eventually it will die again. But by that time I am sure they will have something new out that I may want to try. I could certainly use my money back too. But I feel like either way it will be OK. I will keep you all posted.
I also need to do some quick shopping for the dinner I am planning on Thursday, and do a final run for the Holiday stuff I need. I can pretty much say that I am done with Christmas shopping because many of the things I am giving are things that I am making, but I need to get a couple of things to fill in.
So it will be a “power shopping” trip and hopefully I will be able to button everything up pretty much.
I hope to be back by early afternoon and have enough time to finish the drawings so that I can cut tomorrow. Then too I can try out the double sided painter’s tape that I got this past weekend on my scroll sawing. This pattern that I am making is the perfect candidate for seeing how it will perform. Perhaps I will take some short video clips of how it does. :)
So that is it. So much to do! But it will all be good and hopefully everything will work out fine.
I hope you have a good day today.
