We finally shopped, wrapped, stamped and shipped a large pile of I don't even remember now to the Midwest where a large pile of kin are currently hunkering down through a blizzard.
Enjoy an extra Christmas cookie.
It occurred to us that some of what we had so smugly ordered first week of December had yet to arrive. No worries, three shipping days left. Yet, we had not seen the charge on the bank statement either.
Pause for dramatic effect.
Also, it seems the moccasins that I found for hubby JR are out of stock--they told me of this when I directly asked them when to expect the moccasins--and we should expect them by next Christmas, no problem.
I say it was odd, because it's not exactly sad, is it? This is the kind of hardship that rich people face. Do we cancel, wait or scramble to find an alternative gift?
Of course I am not making light of the real trials people face (see last post), but I am making light of my current dilemma, because it feels a little like a problem, but is it really a problem of too much good stuff?
So what are the idle rich to do when confronted with such hardship? Well, we decided to laugh at it, and give thanks for the hangnails and hangups of too much good stuff.
