Banging My Head on the Wall...

I didn't order math this summer because the two who needed new books (I already had the rest) were doing supplementary materials, and I decided to wait.  

That was apparently a poor decision, because I am still waiting!  I need to order two Epsilon books from Math-U-See, and they have been on backorder FOREVER!  Every single time I check on it, the date moves!  They were supposed to be available last week, then this week, now next week...And it's been that way for awhile.  I am so frustrated!  I don't know what else to do!  They have some other math they can work in for now, but I would really like to get them back into the regular program!

I'm checking ebay now, but I don't hold great odds for finding 2 Epsilon student books that haven't been written in...

I wish!  It is just a notice on the site, not even something I can get an email notice about.

 Have you looked at Amazon to see if they might care it? Do you have a Mardels ( it is a christian / teacher store that sells homeschool curriculum)? They might have them!

I understand the frustration of needing something & not being able to get it when it is needed!

Mardel doesn't have it.  That was the first thing I checked when I got to visit the one in Amarillo on the way home from vacation!

I have a bid in on ebay, which (if I win), will cover one kid.  We bought our first set at Convention too, but we've never had any trouble ordering before this.  It's crazy!

The company we had order trouble with was Rod and Staff.  We bought  some things from them at conventionordered what they didn't have, paid cash, and never saw the rest of the materials.

No, we live in Wyoming.  We went through Lubbock last month though!  My parents (currently) live in Lipan, TX, though they have had their house on the market for a year and are currently packing and downsizing to live in their travel trailer...but that's a different story.

Our family vacation was in September, and we drove to California and went to Disneyland and Seaworld.  Then, we drove from California to Lipan, going through Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Lubbock, and Abilene on the way.  Our last leg was Lipan to home :).

I just love Mardel and will shop at one anytime I have the opportunity!

AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

banging head into wall  frustrated

Epsilon is off back order, and I can put in an order anytime on the website.  BUT, I already big on it on ebay and have 3 days left in the auction...so, if I win it, great, no big.  But if someone outbids me at the last minute, I still have to go back and order it, and what do you want to bet that it will be on back order again by then??  Isn't this crazy?
