Rainy Days and Mondays....

What a weekend! I traveled to Utah to participate in the Rowley Family Reunion (Mom's side of the family) in Fillmore, Utah. I had a great time hanging out with my brothers, parents, aunts and uncles. It was great to catch up with those who were able to make it. I wish I had been able to visit with more, but that's how the cookie crumbles... or in our case how the thunder rolls.

Yes, the thunder rolls. While it was 90+ degrees before I arrived, it was rainy, windy, and cold while I was there. How's a girl supposed to pack? I assume as I did... t-shirts and flip flops all the way. It's a good thing Wal-mart is open 24/7. I'm now the proud (?) owner of a turquise blue pair of knock of converse sneakers.

I had a GREAT time spending Friday evening with my brother, Robert, and his friends. GREAT group of friends! Lots of laughing, and food!

Sunday afternoon, I returned home to the fantastic humidity of Dallas and 100+ temperatures.

I had a great time visiting with my family members. It's a shame we don't live closer. As always, the food was mighty tasty (Mom's shrimp salad was THE BOMB! Aunt Elaines Potato Salad ROCKS! Aunt Carolyn's Baked Beans were SO tasty! They put my (the original) recipe up for a challenge!), and the entertainment was plentiful. Of course, when you get a bunch of Rowleys and then a bunch of Beste's together - it's going to be a bowl of laughter. I am SO sarcastic and have such a smart arse mouth. I don't know if people were laughing because it was funny, or because they're shocked at how well my mom and I banter or because of the things I have the gall to say.

As much fun as we had, it was awesome to get home.

However, news waiting for me at home wasn't so good.

eBay cancelled my QuicKutz auctions due to their VERO policy/agreement with QuicKutz. I didn't know the policy, but after reading it, it totally makes sense and I understand why they cancelled them - to an extent. What irks me, first, is that they didn't cancel all of the auctions that met the same issues mine did. It's almost like they did a pick/choose to see which ones to cancel. ARGH!

Then, I got a second message, stating that they had reason to believe that my eBay ID was tied to another eBay ID that had been suspended. SO, they temporarily revoked my membership, until further investigation could be completed. DOUBLE ARGH!

THEN, because I'm assuming she noticed my suspension, a customer, whom Ive been trying to work with for weeks, leaves me negative feedback stating she had not recieved her items (despite the fact that I have the shipping/delivery confirmation to the address she provided). I had even offered to shop an additional package, but before she responded - she left negatives. TRIPLE ARGH.

So, I'm thrilled to be home, had a great time, but am incredibly frustrated with eBay.

Fun weekend, eh?

Geez um what a terrible ebay experience! Sometimes you have to wonder what's going on with them.
