Happy days, frustrating days

So today my family and I went to a birthday party for a friend's daughter. She turned 1. It was so much fun. I happily volunteered to make her birthday cake. I am clinically obsessed about that kind of thing. I think I enjoyed it way way to much. Shan wanted to do a ladybug party, so I made a whole cake dedicated to the theme. I made a large ladybug and 2 smaller ones laying in the grass. (Imagine 2 red lollipops as antenae. I didn't have them in the cake when I took the picture) It took me all day yesterday, but it was worth it. It makes me so happy to put the skills I have to use. To make it even better, everyone loved the cake. It was all so rewarding.

Now to the ruin of the day. I have been trying for weeks to get a rebate promised to me on black Friday paid. I am just out of ideas. So I went to a department store, bought an $80 set of knives for my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift solely because of the promised $40 rebate check. November 30, I send in the form. Cuisinart recognizes they have received and verified the rebate, but nearly 15 weeks later, still no check. What am I supposed to do? Thinking about calling Bill Gephart. Think he can get me my check?
