On Yahoo’s Bent Creek Group, we had a mid-year ornament exchange. We were under strict orders not to peek until today, June 25. Not all of us were able to refrain from peeking. I was on vacation, so I had my temptation removed. ;o) I was excited, though. I went to the Post Office to get my mail this morining, eager to see my ornie. No mail. 😦 Wha? I thought I said I’d pick up my mail on the Hold Request. Now I had to wait until after 4pm for mail delivery. Boo. Hoo! No fair! I came back from vacation with a cold and a scratchy voice. I wanted a surprise! >insert pouty tantrum here<
Finally, at about 5pm, the mail truck arrived. There was my vacation mail, all bundled up with my Hold Request stating that I wanted to pick up my mail. OK, I haven’t completely lost my mind. 😀 I pawed through the pile of catalogs and bills looking for my package. My secret exchange partner, Melita, had even added a note to the envelope reminding me not to open until June 25!
Here is my lovely Santa: >clap, clap<
