The 21st was the last day that things could arrive by xmas according to USPS, so I was crunching right up to that and then took the 22nd off because I was totally burned out. hah.
The last order I managed to get shipped out on the 21st was from the 14th, so that put me 7 days production time which was on the low-end of my warned 1-2 week turn-around time, so I can at least say I was better than I'd feared I would be.
I had guests for xmas, so didn't get anything done from the 23rd-25th and had every intention of getting back to work on the 26th... and then I got hit HARD with the flu. It's been absolutely awful. I haven't been this sick in at least a couple years.
So I am very very sorry for the added delay since then. I've managed to drag myself to my office a couple times this week and got a few batches of things packaged and shipped, but it wasn't long before I'd crash and go back to bed.
Anyway, the orders I'm packaging right now are from the 20th, so I'm at a 13-day turn-around.
Obviously the order load was a lot lighter by the time it hit the 20th, so at least it's not as bad as it could have been if I'd gone and gotten sick at the start of December.
I'm recovering at least and will be working hard for the rest of the week to get these orders out and the new orders printed.
Thank you for your understanding and sorry for the extra delay.
