    To everyone who is waiting for a calendar, please accept my sincerest apologies. I've checked my order lists (twice!) and all calendars are in the mail. There was one international order that will take longer but everyone else in the US should receive them very, very soon. (If you do not receive your calendar after ample time for shipping from ZIP 92373, please PM me and I will send you my personal phone number so we can resolve this.) Next year I will be enlisting the help of our gracious moderators who will be double-checking my work to ensure there are no mistakes. This year a portion of my order list was truncated and some of the first orders we received did not get filled first like they should have. In addition to that, I have had family and personal matters that have required much of my time and energy. These are not excuses, as I admit I screwed up. I am asking for your forgiveness and graciousness. As a self-starter and problem-solver, I like to take things head on and often all by myself. I've learned a valuable lesson this year. I CAN'T do it all, nor do I have to. We have plenty of wonderful volunteers in this community that have offered to help and I will no longer be shy about asking them for assistance.
    I apologize that some of you are getting your calendars so very late. I'm sorry I've let many of you down. This will not happen again.

    Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
