I am starting to get very frustrated. Here is the story:
I found an AIO that I love. When I ordered the one, the WAHM got it out to me in the time stated. It fits Camden perfectly!!!!!! It is beautifully sewn and I absolutely LOVE it!!!!
So, I emailed the WAHM and told her that I would like to order more, but that I would have to sell off the ones that he was outgrowing to help finance the purchase. She said that was fine and took my order with the understanding that I would pay closer to completion time. So, I waited until about a week before the turn around time she stated, sold off all of my AIOs except 2, and paid for my order.
The turn around time came and went. I waited quite a while after that before emailing about the status and was told that she was about to begin my order. So, I waited probably a week or two...still no dipes. Just when I was about to email again, I received a group email that stated there had been some family issues, but that several orders would be shipped the next day.....my name was specifically listed as one of the orders that would ship. So, I waited about a week. When I was just about to email again, I received another group email stating that there had been a problem and the orders would be shipped asap, leading me to believe after the prior week's email, that my package was one of the problems, but should now be on its way. I waited another week and finally emailed the WAHM. This was the first time that I actually contacted her since the issues in her life had been mentioned. I politely thanked her for the unpdateds, but told her that I really needed my dipes and just inquired as to when they would be shipped. I received an email back saying that they would go out the next day and she would let me know which shipping method she used. That has now been almost another week and I have yet to receive the dipes or that email letting me know how they were shipped.
I, being a WAHM, definitely know that life gets in the way at times. I have ran behind my expected turn around at times. But, I try to keep in touch with my customers and let them know when their order will ship. I do ALL I can to make sure that happens and if not I let them know. I think that being a WAHM, I have actually been more understanding about this than I would have been before starting my own business.
But, after being stated a 3 week turn around time, it has been just under 8 weeks. I REALLY believe that she has had issues in her life. I sympathize with that and I know that sometimes you just do not feel up to dealing with orders. I also think that I have been mislead about the status of my order. If she cannot get it out, I understand, but I would appreciate an honest answer when I inquire about the status.
DH is getting very frustrated. He is perfectly capable of changing a fitted and cover, but prefers AIOS. And, with the baby coming any day, I had planned for these to be here in time to leave with MIL while I am in the hospital. I have since ordered and recieved two LHC AIOs, but that still just leaves us with 4 all together and I will have to leave sposies with MIL during the birth. This will be the first sposies on Camden's hiney in over a year and a half.....I know, not that big of a deal, but it is just the point. I am taking cloth for the new baby to wear in the hospital, but her brother will be in sposies.
So, is it just pg hormones that are causing this to frustrate me so much? Am I being unreasonable? My plan is to email her if they are not here tomorrow and request my money back. I NEED more AIOs. I would love to have the ones that I ordered. They fit beautifully, but if they are not ready to ship, then I want my money so that I can order more LHCs. Is this wrong? Should I just continue to wait?
