I'm in a quandry. And I'm lazy (again). Actually, that's not entirely true. I have more faith in my readership to help me solve my problem... uh... wait a sec...


(thump thump)

(screechy feedback)

(peering blindly beyond the spotlight) is there anyone sitting out there? (a few waves)

I digress.

On a recent trip to the grocery store (ooh fun, yes) I happened to notice the "Holiday" Martha mag. And then yesterday I saw this post, and just now I saw this, all of which reminded me of a conversation that I had with my step-mother-in-law back in the summer. Yes, this is going somewhere. Both of us are subscribers to Martha's lovely little mag (me: recent, her: very long time/loyal) and both of us were under the impression that by being subscribers that we are entitled to "4 special editions". And yet... a year came and went, and I have no memory of said special editions, and neither did she.

And yet there it is. The "Holiday" edition. It sure seems special. And I've never received it.

Am I missing something? (I mean that literally.) Does anyone know?

I don't have any first hand experience with this problem, but if you go to:

It shows that if you order 12 months you get the four special holiday issues with your subscription.

This is the number to call with questions/problems with your subscription service:

wow. thanks Mary... I guess I could have done that on my own. So I called, and yes, there are supposed to be 4 extra issues. Somehow I got left out of those shipments.

So here's the cool part - I'm supposed to be getting ALL FOUR issues in 7-10 days, and if not, I get to call them and bug them again! :)

Fun fun!

You're welcome. I'm kind of weird that way. If someone mentions a problem like this, I take it upon myself to find a solution. If I knew your vital stats I'd have called them for you!

Of course, when it comes to my calling to get insurance figured out, etc. Nothing.

Well, it should be fun to get all four issues together.
