Holy Metal Batman! I have packages…and that’s not good.
Today Ben came back from mailing some Christmas packages with …packages…for me! He said the one was kinda old because he had forgotten to give me the sign for it slip. I gave him a look and said…see..this is why I don’t like you picking the mail up and going to work with it!
I was excited as I had received everything I’d ordered and just KNEW the bits of bits of goodness swaps I participated in were back! Well…yippie for me!
I tear into the first box while I let the kids open the other one. The girls just start squealing with joy! (I’m thinking ohhh…it must be good!
I get mine open and….it looks familiar. Holy CRAP! Ok…this giveaway is simply cursed! It’s the Arctic Giveaway I sent out to the winner. (Nope…not telling…she knows but you have to wait for pics of the kids playing with the polar bear. Hey…it’ll make a good blog post ok?! 😉 )
I don’t know how or why but it came back to the post office….and to me.
I look over as I’m coming out of my “OH GOOD GRIEF! CAN ANYTHING ELSE GO WRONG WITH THIS GIVEAWAY?!?” grief to see….My Wish.Wonder.Suprise Swap….in the girls hands. Rhea goes…”these look just like what you made us!” Obviously my child is quite good with the obvious. It looks like I had switched the labels.
I’m so aggravated. I don’t know what to do. Now I know why the gal emailed me asking about the swap. I just thought it was taking a bit more time.
Well….ok…I’m hoping …well…I’m actually begging that I can bribe my way into getting to send these in. I’m going to send in an extra something for each swapper if I can still participate.
So…mommas…my lesson learned….teach yourself before the kids. I apparently lost my mind somewhere as I was labeling that box. I don’t know WHAT happened to the giveaway. The labels were right. I live in hick ville so maybe I need to have literally write TO: and FROM:
And, just to double check….From goes in the top left corner right?……
Momma Giveaway Winner…I swear someday you’ll receive it. I’m going to stick something extra in after I have the thing blessed so it can get to you without further issue. And, I’m not kidding about the blessing. I’m so saying a prayer over that thing.
