No problem.. the issue I'm having is that there are several questions so I'm not sure where to begin or how to proceed. I certainly don't mean to sound rude, but it would be better if you could explain your problem and then allow me to ask the questions. Once we come up with a solution for you, I'd be glad to answer any additional questions you may have. But at this point, I'm not sure what the nature of your problem is. If you could explain exactly what the problem is that you're having, I can better determine where to go from here. If you want to wait until tomorrow to respond, that is fine by me. We can continue at your convenience.
