How's that for a lame title? I guess my creative juices have been all used up.
We had perfect snow man snow on Monday. I skipped yoga to work with Claire on our snowfamily.
Those are sliced of pepperoni for the eyes and quarters of apples for the mouths. Carrots for noses, of course. Do you like the fancy frilly purple scarf the snowmama is wearing? My friend Lisa knit it for me.
And now for the bad news. This arrived yesterday.
Can you see the line that is checked? "RECEIVED WITHOUT CONTENTS." This means that at one of it's stops along the way, the contents escaped from the packaging. Can you imagine anything more terrible? (Well, of course, but you know what I mean...) It gets even worse. Wait until I tell you what was supposed to be in it. This book. I know! Could you just die?!
I made a joke about this package earlier in the week saying that is was running late and thinking the postman must be enjoying it. Be careful what you say!
My mom sent this birthday gift several days ago. I think if she were giving advice after this experience, she would say: Pay extra for priority mail AND use the free, strong, sturdy priority mail boxes and/or envelopes you can get at the post office.
We hope we might be able to track the missing birthday gift down. I'll keep you posted.
