He’s not that helpful when mid-game. “What the heck dad!!”
So, I’ve FINALLY started Christmas shopping, and I’ve managed to pick up a few things, but I shit you not, everything that Tammi has sent me, is NOT available online.
First off, she’ll probably read this post and find out what she’s NOT getting, but then again, it could very well be a trick…that no one will know about until Christmas day. I’m tricky like that. ;-)
Martha Stewart’s baker’s blade. Um…someone…ANYONE…find me this thing. It’s not available on Macys.com, but there appears to be one random one in their store. I know, she sent me a picture of it.
E-Z Touch gloves. They are little gloves, in what appears to be a houndstooth pattern that allow you to use your smartphone with them on. These things don’t exist online, apparently the elves made them and put a single pair at Macy’s.
Embellished faux suede (blue) heels. As advertised in a popular magazine for women, do not exist on their web site. Why…why even put it in the ad if you don’t even have it on your web site? Web site needs help anyway – AMIClubwear.com.
Guess I’ll have to actually DRIVE to the store and hope those items are there at Macy’s. I wonder what time they open this morning?
I started following a new blog a few months ago when I stumbled upon it on Facebook (I believe) – LifeToHerYears.com. It’s filled with these (almost daily) pieces of advice for dad’s with daughters that will really hit home when you start going through them. Every so often I wake up with a new piece of advice, and although I’m not perfect in following ALL of the advice, it’s good to read and learn from it.
Some of my favorites…
391. “What’s that dad?” No matter how many times she asks, always give an answer. Despite what you might think, you don’t want the questions to stop.
370. Take her shoe shopping. Little girls love a new pair of shoes. Then again, so do big girls… you really can’t go wrong with this one.
368. Never let her leave the house without first giving her a hug and telling her that you love her.
And the list goes on and on. Recommended reading. Do it…now.
There have been moments of awesome where I’ve gone through and had a whole new site redesigned and started in on the development. Problem is, when I was doing it last, I had a full time 9-5 gig and I was just too burnt out at night to do anything with it.
I also tend to stuff too many features in. Yeah, it’d be cool to have all the little whiz-bang features, but what is the FASTEST route to $$$? It’s not 3 more weeks of development before that new feature is finished.
I’ve literally come down to this – a home page, explaining what I do, and an order form to gather information from the customer and their payment information.
