The announcements, as follows. :D

AS HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY POLICY, EVERY EMAIL YOU SEND RESETS THE WAIT ON YOUR UNANSWERED EMAILS. 

If you fail to recognize this, you will spend a long time waiting while others get their emails replied to, and yep, you could very well be fired. I'm really tired of being spammed. Really tired. Please have the emotional wherewithall to wait for my reply. It is not that hard to do. Yes, of course, if I've been tardy for a certain amount of days not counting days off or the ones where I was sick with the flu (which, if I'm being fair, was at least until Wednesday, August 9, since the fever broke around then,) and no, I am in no way trying to make you, in particular, (or, for that matter, anyone in particular,) feel badly....just stating the facts - then RESEND your email, but realize, if you and I are through as client/worker, I'm not shy, and I'll tell you. Spamming me won't encourage me to keep us as client and worker, though, it's just antagonistic. There are at least 45 other active clients not acting out while you are. 

Still plenty of room for rituals, please EMAIL ME if interested. The email issues should be no big deal. :P

Trying to get class restarted tonight. Please have some patience with me (if you don't.) I am also going to have to redo the mailing list so PLEASE have patience with me while I do. You've all been awesome! Thanks, class!!! :)

Hey everyone, I know my being sick last week made scheduling a nightmare. If you got your appointment bumped PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP TO RESCHEDULE. I am happy to do any and all late readings and consults! 

PAY YOUR BILLS! In some cases I'm getting legal help for people who are incredibly delinquent on their payments. I will resend the invoices if you need me to. 


8/8/17

Well, at least I understand why I was so cranky last week, and yep, entirely from chasing people down and stuff, excluding maybe 2% of that crappy mood which was that I got the flu...in the summer. I was basically asleep with a fever for much of Sunday night (if I was being weird Saturday, that might also be why,) but I do apologize to anyone who spoke to me after 2-3p on Sunday (I was apparently coming down with a flu), and was totally feverish Monday all day. Woke up feeling better-ish today. I am very sorry if that effected your appointment/response. Why Sat/Sun are NEVER to be considered business days (they are my days off,) please nix on Monday counting as a business day, as well. Sorry for getting sick. If I find the person I caught this from, I am going to act like Liam Neeson in those Taken movies, lol. ;)

Thank you to those of you who paid your overdue bills. To those who haven't.....I hope you see my dirty look from here. 

Trying to pare down my active readings list so I can resume class (which yes, I'm over a week late, I suck,) so if you want to make an appointment, please be prepared for a 2-3 day wait between scheduling and talking. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

Just a word of advice to those who need it....contacting someone over frequently who has been standoffish is NEVER a good idea. If someone tells you "I need space," GIVE THEM SPACE. It's not always (or even nearly as common as people who panic seem to think,) a slam against you. Sometimes people need a day or two to breathe. Let them have it. 


8/2/17

The site may not move after all, and there's a very good reason...I've about hit my limit on bad behaviors, chasing people down over things like FORTY-FIVE DOLLARS THAT THEY HAVE OWED FOR OVER A MONTH, or any other myriad of things. I'm honestly thinking I may stop offering services after 13-14 years of offering services. I mean, I have someone who won't even fix a "banking error" and tells  me I'm mean for asking for this for like a month. I have people who can't wait FIVE BUSINESS DAYS for a reply on something and email me over and over and over and  over and over and over and over, resetting their wait on replies. My policies really haven't changed - if anything I've become more lax in more than one case and let people get away with behaviors that I would have fired them for years ago. 

I may stay in business, but it really comes down to this month. If things don't change FOR THE BETTER very soon, I'm going to close up shop. This is not a joke. I'm a far more patient person than I get credit for, and at this point, I'm about at the last bit of patience I have left. It won't mean I'll throw everyone out the door the moment I do close up shop (if I do,) but rather that I won't accept new clients after a certain time, and then will stick with the cases I have until they have all completed (which could be awhile - I will be here and helping and on your case until we're both satisfied that it's been taken care of.) 

If you want me to stay around, start by paying your bills, then follow site policy. Please kindly acknowledge business hours. Please understand if I miss an email, I'm not ignoring you and it's not a personal slam against you (some people get very fussy if I do not reply to something that is basically like "Thanks Cat, I understand." and nothing more.) 

If everything improves with these bad behaviors (and no, not everyone is behaving badly, of course, it's just rampant moreso than usual,) I will stay on, and we'll all be happier. It's amazing how much more delightful and verbose I am when I'm not dealing with people emailing me 14 times a day over a single post on social media, or having to chase down $15 because someone still hasn't paid me. ;) It's impressive how many more readings I can do when people follow directions. I miss those days. It feels like I've been dealing with some crazy BS for like a year now, though it's probably only been a month or two. :P

The site is moving to a new host THIS WEEK. SO HAPPY about this. I may also be getting a fresh cellphone (as we all know my iPhone died after me being the person who probably kept the screen replacement guy's kids in college, lol,) so that will be a HUGE HELP. I might finally feel like I am not living in my own personal mercury retrograde. I am replying (three times in some cases) to emails all day today. :) Thanks so much for understanding. Once I move hosts the "doesn't send emails" issue will be behind us all. :)

PLEASE PAY YOUR BILLS. In more than one case, I actually have people owing me things like $10 for weeks on end. :P I won't be offering payment plans in the future thanks to this. It's sort of silly to be waiting for $10 for 3 weeks. :/

Some of you have seen my announcement, and I invite feedback. Thinking of switching to monthly service rates for most cases. I could have more time with my active cases, and while I will take a bit of a financial spanking (that means a loss,) I feel it could improve my availability for active cases. However, I'd rather hear what my clients think. Please let me know. 

Class is starting again soon. If you were active in my class, PLEASE email me so I can put you on my list. Thanks!

Well I've HAD IT with this host. I'm getting over-billed (pretty much a monthly bill comes out weekly which requires me to call) probably half my emails aren't going out, and it's just....pardon my language but it's fucking horrible. It's been like this for 6 weeks, and due to my own personal stuff going on (the stuff from May) transferring hasn't really been affordable, especially time-wise, but fck it, I'm going to move hosts within the next 10 days. I can't continue to make people wonder if I'm dead or missing. It's cheaper to transfer than to waste an hour on customer service every week about the over billing, and quite frankly, I can't think of any reason to stay on with them where moving isn't an improvement. 

PLEASE PAY YOUR OVERDUE BILLS! This will aid in the transfer of the site, and I won't keep having to take time to chase everyone down while I'm already trying to figure who isn't getting their emails due to this (expletive expletive expletive) host.

I have plenty of room for new work. If you're concerned you will not get your emails from me, I can set you up with a temporary email that is not attached to the site. LET ME BE CLEAR AND STOP A PROBLEM BEFORE IT STARTS - I AM RECEIVING ALL OF YOUR EMAILS, THAT IS NOT THE CURRENT ISSUE. SOME EMAILS THAT I SEND ARE APPARENTLY GETTING STUCK IN LIMBO. ALL OF YOUR EMAILS ARE COMING. So, yeah, if I drop off suddenly for a few days, I probably replied. Let me know I dropped off into silence and I will reply again, and if you still don't hear from me, I'll fix it. If that keeps happening, I will stick you on my personal email until I transfer the site.

Thank you everyone for your patience. I appreciate it! I know it's not been easy for me to be patient, so I am sure the reverse is true.

I CANNOT CATCH UP WHEN I GET FREQUENT "REMINDERS" - IT SLOWS DOWN EVERY SINGLE PERSON'S RESPONSE TIME HORRIBLY. Soo...

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - if I find you've sent reminders at a frequency that is NOT FIVE BUSINESS DAYS APART in the last 10 days, you may be fired. If you send me a reminder for ANYTHING THIS WEEK, you're almost definitely fired (because I am not going to reward impatient people who slow everyone's responses - and if you're not being impatient from your perspective, just realize I'd have this mess cleaned up days ago if people took the "don't send reminders" notice seriously before.) I can't catch up when everyone is pulling me in 20 directions. This is ludicrous. I have the same people "reminding me" for something over and over and over and over, often daily or multiple times daily (resetting their wait). I have a host that is not sending my replies which is slowing things up, because I have to check on my webmail to make sure it's out of my outbox (switching hosts as soon as I can, so please be patient) and if you really think doing the equivelant of poking me in the shoulder every ten seconds with "you got that yet" is helpful, it isn't. NO REPLY OF MINE IS LATE IF FIVE BUSINESS DAYS (Monday through Friday) have passed. Was it FIVE BUSINESS DAYS since your last reminder? If not, you just reset your own wait on my reply. Think about that. That isn't new. If you send me an email before I can reply, you reset your wait on ALL OF YOUR UNREPLIED-TO EMAILS.

And to everyone who isn't one of those people (WHICH THANKFULLY IS MOST OF YOU, AND I LOVE YOU ALL FOR THAT, I AM SORRY THE ABOVE NEEDED TO BE SAID,) due to certain people some of my replies may be 3-ish business days apart. I know for awhile I was doing everything in 36 or less hours for replies, but trying to catch up has been hideous. :P If the people who needed the above notice knock it off, it will be less than three days to clean up this email inbox mess. Yay! :)

There are definitely spots on the altar, but reading spots are filling fast for this week. Please schedule ASAP if you need a reading now.
