“Oh, I forgot to mention, you got a package today. I didn’t look to see where it came from.”
Adventure Guy conveniently updates me on our mail deliveries, seeing as how he spends a great deal of his time working from home while I’m at the office. Today, though, I couldn’t imagine what this package could be. I’ve already received several of my Christmas orders, and, though I’m expecting several more, I order those recently enough that they should take a few days longer to arrive on my porch.
In fact, I felt very accomplished as we talked because I’d used a little of my lunch time today to do some final online shopping, ordering a few gifts and the kids’ traditional Christmas Eve pajamas.
So, I found myself quite surprised when I arrived home and opened the package to find…Soccer Boy’s Christmas Eve pajamas. I have absolutely no recollection of actually ordering this set, though I do remember browsing for them. Ironically, they are exactly the same set I ordered today. At least I know that’s really the pair I want for him! Unfortunately, by the time that I realized my error and called customer service, it was too late to stop today’s order. I guess I’ll be making a trip to UPS for a return in the near future.
I do not want to contemplate what this means about my level of preparation and focus on the holiday this year. I can’t wait to finish my class this weekend so that I can shift into full holiday-preparation mode. Obviously, I need a little more concentration in that area!
