I thought I had the perfect Christmas gift selected for A. We have a little tv in our bedroom. I think I’ve had it since college. It’s a tube tv and given our love for sports, that’s typically what we watch on it. It’s become increasingly more difficult to see the puck or the ball or whatever sport we’re watching as the technology just isn’t current. I had this great idea that I would gift A a new tv for Christmas so that we could actually see what we were attempting to watch. I received an email that the tv I selected would be delivered on Wednesday. I was working from home and checked throughout the day. No tv. I was upstairs getting the boys ready for bed when W said that he thought he heard a delivery truck. Sure enough, a few seconds later, A said that a package arrived and it was for him, something he had ordered. I assumed that the tv I had been waiting on was just delayed since it’s such a busy time of year. We got the boys to bed and I had another email. A delivery confirmation indicating the tv had been delivered at 8:04pm (really late, no??). I asked A if he was certain that the package that arrived was his. He said yes. I told him I was going to go outside and look for my package, but also mentioned it was odd that he didn’t see it because it would be in a big box. He said that his package was also a big box. We both looked at each other skeptically…
A: “My package is something we can both use.”
Me: “So is mine.”
A: “My package was something for our bedroom.”
Me: “Yeah, so is mine!”
A: “My package is something with two letters.”
Me: “SO IS MINE!!!”
We got each other the same present!! Same brand, same size tv. I can’t believe it!!!! I guess we’re made for each other. :)
In related news, I’m getting more and more excited for Christmas. There is nothing better than experiencing Christmas with your children.
PSA: You know that little screen on the back of your hair dryer? Clean it out! I knew this, but I guess I sort of forgot about it. In my defense, my blow dryer actually has two screens so the buildup was somewhat hidden. Anyway, I was drying my hair the other night and it was taking FOREVER!! I realized the screen was completely clogged and after cleaning it, it’s a whole new dryer!! Such a difference!
It's been rainy and gloomy for the past week it seems - I'm ready to never get out of bed again. :P
