harry potter puppet pal
This morning I decided to remember all my packages (to Micaela, Matthew, Jana & Lisa for Micaela’s swap – which should have gone out Monday, Sorry Lisa!!). I didn’t actually have Jana’s packaged yet, and I didn’t have the note written to explain why Lisa’s getting what she’s getting… and actually as I wrote it I think I forgot to tell her about one of the things, but it’s just cuz I like the scent for winter, so no mystery really! *laugh* Anyway! I thought I was going to be running a little late – I had to stop for a biscuit & diet pepsi as well, because I was feeling peckish – but I made it to work on time! Yay!
At lunch, I went to the loo before heading to the PO, and met Marty in there & she said I should go to Hy Vee to mail my packages because they were always so convenient for her. So I thought, well yes, I can save some time! But then the parking lot at HV was a BEAR and I got frustrated & just drove on to the PO instead anyway! Had I just skipped that, I think I would have made it in time… As it was, the line at the PO moved pretty fast. However, when it was my turn at the counter… I became one of THOSE ppl. You know, the ppl who get up to the counter & then everything is wrong & they have to go to the side to do stuff before they can be helped? Yep, that was me!! So, they helped the rest of the line while I had to fill out customs forms (which wanted details about what’s inside?? Can’t they just x-ray it anyway? Yeesh! Nosey customs ppl! LOL)… I know Canada is a different country, but I didn’t remember having to fill out these forms when sending stuff to our neighbors in the North previously! Ah, the times, they are a changin’! So, I got all that done, and then realized (or, rather, was told, when I saw the sticker w/ the price on my package) that I’d used the wrong box. Now, I just grabbed a box as I was rushing out the door. I didn’t think about what the box was… so, to those getting these packages, please don’t judge me by how much I paid to ship them to you… d’oh!!! : ) it just means I really really wanted them to get to you!! : )
I do love the ppl at my post office, tho! They are always so nice & helpful & friendly!!! Except the lady helping me seemed kinda annoyed w/ me at first, but then I won her over. *laugh*
I think I won her over. She may have been cursing me as I walked out…
Moving on! I picked up a cheeseburger & apple fries (mmm!) for lunch & made it back later than I’d wanted. So, I took an hour of vacation on my timecard. It’ll all work out! Then, in the afternoon, I had to get some paperwork claims done & finish my PM. The boss & I had a little meeting about something AWESOME that happens on our December 15th paycheck (PTL!!!!!), and in that discussion I also had a little prodding about getting my PM to him before I left for the day. D’oh! I’ve been busy!!!
After work, I really couldn't figure out what I wanted for dinner. I finally settled on ordering pizza. : ) It was yummy, too!! I watched Castle & GLEE - last night's episode was back to what I love about that show, and what IMO, made it a hit. I just want to hug Kurt til it's all better. And maybe Sue, too. I love how they make her character SO EVIL - and then they show us, the audience, her humanity. Love it!! : )
And now ... sleep. Tomorrow is our day of Thanks. Golden Corral at 2. Can't wait! *laugh*
Before I sleep, tho - if you like Harry Potter, and you haven't seen these videos, please visit the website: http://www.potterpuppetpals.com/ My favorites are The Mysterious Ticking Noise and Bothering Snape. *sings* Snape. Snape. Severus Snape. !!! *grin* Oh, also today, Postcrossings!!! : ) TTFN!!!
and finally, France! The turtle sticker was on the back of the France card. : ) I love how thoughtful ppl are in the turtle stuff they send! Much appreciated!!!
