surprise packages

I love getting presents! Especially surprise presents that come in the mail. There's nothing better than opening the mailbox to find a key to one of the bigger lock boxes and know you didn't order something, yet there's a box waiting for you. The kind that contain something personal - a luxury just for me. I had one of those surprise packages waiting for me yesterday. (I'm sure it was actually there on Thursday, but since I completely had the DAY FROM HELL that day, I never bothered to stop and check for mail.)

When we FINALLY got home last night after making countless stops to pick things up on the way home - trust me, DO NOT plan errand running on a Friday evening - I grabbed the mail, and my surprise package, unloaded the car, put everything away, checked email, and got on the phone. Never even opened the box. Yeah, I'm weird like that.

Around 8:30pm my mother calls. "Did you get the box I sent, or did the USPS lose it?"

I told her it was here but I hadn't opened it yet. She couldn't understand what in hell I was waiting for. Frankly, neither could I, but as I mentioned, I'm weird like that. So she pushes and says "Go open it now." {sigh} If I must.

Sometimes my mom's pushing and prodding drives me crazy but was I ever happy she pushed me to open the box. Take a look what was inside.....


My mom ROCKS!!! Buh-bye my old friends, you've been replaced.

I just had to stop by your blog after reading that you too cut your bangs. So do I! It's nothing for me to be sitting at my desk at work giving myself a little trim if you will- I am sure my boss just LOVES me!! And my mom would do the "mom freak out" if she sent me a package and when she called I hadn't yet opened it and I would do the *sigh* thing too.

We get packages in the mail all the time. But it's never for me. It's always for the "grandkids". I never got that much crap when I was kid!
