    I am at home today waiting for the delivery of my new long arm. I don't hear as well as I should so I am afraid to go upstairs and I definately can't do any sewing because I know I wouldn't hear the door with the machine going.

    I could do some hand work but I don't WANT to. I want to take a nap but can't do that either!

    How many YouTube videos can a person watch in a day? I've seen kittens and puppies and all sorts of quilting videos. The stock market isn't even open today so I could play or watch.

    Whine! Whine! Whine!

    Sounds like me when I'm waiting for the vet. All I know is they'll be here "after 1:00." Today I didn't wait--I worked horses and was down the road with one when she pulled in. We hustled back, she didn't care if she had to wait a minute. :-D We no longer have a dog outside to sound the alarm when someone pulls in, so I keep quilts that need the binding sewed on in the library so I can look out the window to the driveway.

    I know... what a thing to whine about! My tolerance is almost at it's end and I'll start jumping in my skin any minute now.

    I have a quilted pig here to repair and I sewed one patch on his leg but I just can't do any more!

    If hearing is an issue for you, you could check out the stuff at www.soundclarity.com. I'm sure they have something you could attach to your doorbell to flash the lights when the doorbell rings. That way you could be in your sewing room and know when someone is at your door. (Wouldn't help for today's delivery but good for the future.)

    I would be pacing a hole in the carpet LMBO
    I can't wait to see your new set up :D:D:D
    When I am expecting a delivery and want to sew, I have left the front door cracked open and a note on the storm door that says "I am sewing, please knock LOUDLY" :D:D:D

    I'll even take pictures when it gets here (wonder if the delivery person will be a good looking man, see what it has driven me to... not that I need to be driven to think of good looking men...) Where was I? Oh, pictures. Yep, I'll take pictures.

    Never thought of that about the door. I should take a look as I do this all the time, deliveries or not.

    Don't say that!!! My heart literally skipped!

    I've checked the tracking (multiple times) and it says today. I even got an automated phone call yesterday reminding me of the delivery today.

    You know what would really improve customer service? Put on the tracking a delivery truck number and a GPS on the trucks. Click on the truck and find out where it actually is on a map!

    It was "OUT FOR DELIVERY" at 5:30am from a town that's about 10 minutes away on the freeway.

    Sounds like Southern Cal!! That would be so cool. I work with truck lines, and the trucks actually can be tracked that way. They just don't let you and I look at the website! They have most of the major truck lines hooked up to GPS, so the dispatchers can tell you exactly where the truck is located.

    I was going to say the same thing~~~it'll probably be his last drop off for the day. That always seems to be my luck, when I'm waiting for something they don't show up til they are on their way home ;) Hopefully your new toy comes SOON!!!

    I imagine that he left the town 10 minutes away, drove out to the end of the road, so to speak, past my town and still be in the county, and will drop my packages off on his way back.

    I can hardly get myself to clean my own house. :)

    I haven't gone grocery shopping so I scrounged around and thawed hamburger while cooking it, put some hot sauce on it and heated tortillas for soft tacos. At least I'm not hungry anymore.

    Oh stop - by then you will have used up all your pent up angst and you'll probably hug the guy from sheer relief and happiness.

    In the spirit of old sayings: A watched pot won't boil or, as in your case: A watched tracker won't deliver. lol

    Just wait... if I lay down to take a nap he'll come. I will go into the living room with a book and lay on the couch.
