So about that light fixture… Here is the long-winded saga of how we have ended up with a very long wait for the perfect lighting.
We ordered it back in January from Lamps Plus. On the date it was supposed to ship last week, we got an update from them saying that the shipping date was pushed back to MAY 30TH!
I was very angry, and called them to check if that was real. It was, in fact, real. Something about their vendor having it on back order or whatever.
In my fit of rage, I told them to cancel my order, please. (yes, even when I’m angry, I say please. Thanks, mom!) Which they did.
So I went to Destination Lighting’s website, which is the same as Globe Lighting, I believe. We had ordered our hallway light fixture (which still isn’t up) from them, and it came within a week. So we love them! But I just couldn’t find anything there that could compare to the light fixture we had originally picked.
Cue: Super-Sleuth Carolyn… I googled the name of our light fixture in the interest of finding it somewhere besides Lamps Plus, to test out if there was possibly another company that might possibly get that fixture from a different vendor and could therefore possibly get it to us faster.
FAIL! I did find it somewhere else. And I ordered it. And they sent us an order update right away, indicating that it would be shipped on May 30th. At least they didn’t wait over a month to tell us about that little hiccup (Booooo Lamps Plus). Looks like if we want that light fixture, we have to wait. And we decided that we really do want that light fixture. So we will wait, and it will arrive in June.
In the meantime, we get to use the $2 temporary light in the bathroom for several more months. Now that we’ve come to terms with the wait for our beautiful light fixture, this has become quite funny to us.
I knew we’d find humor in all of this again, if only we could have the patience!
