After that we had 2 hours before it was time to pack up the car and head back out the the mobile home for another week. I heard that the weather was turning stormy on Monday so I added a rubber weatherstrip to the bottom of my door because I thought that was where the rain was getting in. I was wrong. I still don't know but next week I am going to rip off the interior paneling around the door and look for light. This is a huge problem and I must find the solution. But anyway, I must back up. I have been fighting with the tuxedo shop, Tuxedo Online, because I exchanged my nephew's choir outfit and they hadn't shipped the replacement. After staying on hold for 45 minutes last week, the woman promised they would send it out last Tuesday. After parent-teacher conferences (oh ya, I went to that too) on Thursday, I got a phone call from the tuxedo shop saying they didn't have the size shoe that I ordered. I told them to send the closest size and asked when the package would arrive. They said Monday and I said I needed it Monday so I had them ship overnight. So, on Friday when we got to the house the package was waiting for us. I was relieved until I opened it and immediately knew that the vest was not supposed to be a solid color. The choir teacher had mentioned that some parents said that the vest were backordered. Did they think I wouldn't notice that they sent the wrong vest? On Monday he dressed up in his outfit and we marched up to the choir teacher and asked if he had any extra vests left. Luckily, he did. It was a little big but at least it was the right pattern. I went home to clean up the water that had leaked in around the door and under the vinyl flooring and then went back for the performance which was very good and not too long. Choir is a popular elective at their school. They have 5 different choir groups and each one sang 3 songs.
Whew, so that was over but we still don't have the right vest of our own. I sent back the solid vest and now I'm waiting. The next choir performance is at the end of October. Hopefully, the vest arrives before then. Oh, and the shirt sleeves were too short and the shoes too big but those problems are easier to fix than the back-ordered vest.
The rest of the week I made sure he worked on his paper for choir, made up any late work, and tied up all loose ends. He has the next 2 weeks off for fall break while the teachers get caught up on their grading. I will try to over-ride my natural tendency to relax and try to get some projects done that will make things easier next quarter. The list is long. Maybe I can do the top 3.
