So, I decided what I wanted for my birthday and told my husband.
It was on sale at a local store and I was afraid it would cost a lot more by the time it was actually my birthday.
Then I looked around and realized it was cheaper on Amazon than locally and shipping was free, so I ordered it there. I guess I should have waited because the reason I was getting it early was because the sale was going to end.
I found this on my doorstep this afternoon and was disappointed in the carrier. You would think that now that the holiday rush is over they could be a little more careful.
I took pictures of the damaged packaging because I wanted to show how bad it was in case anything inside was lost or damaged.
The book was ok. It is a very cool book.
And the big present was ok - well packaged inside it's own box which was inside the damaged outer box.
I'm very excited - I have a bunch of fabric and now I'm going to sew some of it up. A very good friend has lent me her sewing machine for well over a year now (that is a VERY good friend, isn't it?). I can return it now, if she needs it, or let Girl Far From Home continue to sew on it. Girl seems to really like sewing - good thing she got some of the family genes.
And Dena, my dogs have decided that they really like the bigger bed. I'm going to have to go get another - do you still want the smaller one or would you rather the bigger one? The smaller one will be pretty easy to mail.
