WOW..A PACKAGE..FOR ME?

You should have seen me yesterday! You would have thought I won the lottery! We got a package via UPS which was addressed to ME!

So naturally, I'm all excited and giddy, but I couldn't figure out who the person was who sent it. It had the return label but the gals name and company didn't ring a bell! My mind was working overtime to try to figure it out! While I was opening the package, this is what I was literally saying out loud.

"Who is Melissa??"

"What company is this?"

"Is this from a giveaway I won? But they would have contacted me!"

"Is this from Kelli from the Pay It Forward I participated in? Wow, she's fast!"

And can you imagine my entire family is just looking at me like, "Ooooooooooooooookay????"

So, I open it up, and this is what's in it! Hmmm??

I start thinking out loud again!

"What is this???"

"Is this a gift for Mocha?"

"Who would have my address and send me a gift?"

"Wow..I feel blessed!"

"Are these pockets?"

So, I hand them to my daughter who is trying to figure it out too! Finally, she says, "They're pillow cases!" I'm like, "Huh?? Pillow cases? Who would send me pillow cases??" (Mind you, I'm still thinking that somebody totally blessed me with a gift!) Well, I decide to look up the website to see if I can narrow it down to where they came from. On the website, I see this company sells Scandinavian design products. I'm still like, "Huh??"

THEN IT DAWNS ON ME!!!!!!!!!!

They're not FOR ME! These are my sisters!!!! Since she lives in Hawaii, and many companies do not ship there. What she'll do is have it sent to me, and then I will mail it to her!! She usually gives me the heads up that "I'll be receiving a package in the mail," but this time she didn't! So, I refolded them nicely, put it back in the plastic it came in and shoved it back in the cardboard!!!

So much for me being blessed!!!

Jundy Bautista said...

ohhhh man...! i can't imagine getting a package, thinking it's all for me and then having to re-pack it! still, you did make me laugh with this posting... :-D

Briony said...

hahah that is awesome...that happened to me a lot when i was in school. all my friends that lived on campus would have their packages sent to my apartment so it wouldn't get lost in the schools slow mail system. i had a lot of roller-coaster moments then. haha

Melissa said...

LOL! That happened to me the other day too! I have quite a few of my Canadian friends that have their stuff shipped here, and then they come and pick it up. Usually they have it shipped in their name, so I never really get excited when I see a package, cause it's most likely not for me. Well yesterday a package came it was addressed to me!!! I looked at the return address and realized that it was for my friend and not me, and then I was totally bummed! :o( I really thought that maybe Curt had ordered me something on the internet just to be nice, or maybe someone had sent me something.

It's so dissappointing when that happens, eh?

Erica said...

Christin said...

ha ha ha!! That is too funny Alicia!

I recently ordered our new curriculum for next year and I received over 20 books from amazon/half.com in the mail over a couple of weeks. I told my mail lady it's like "Christmas everyday!" I kept getting boxes and big envelopes. It was fun!

I'm still waiting on like 4 books, too!

Receiving things in the mail is alway fun!
