I had a friend of mine dispatch a goodie box. I did a bunch of online shopping (tsk tsk - I know) and I sent all the items to her house. She then consolidated it all and sent it out. It had new work boots - which were PINK! I was so excited about those boots....but it turned out that they were a little too big...which is one of the hazards of online shopping with no means of returning things. I also got new work pants - I like Carhartts a lot. I got TONS of tea - some decaf and some regular. I got a bunch of trashy romance novels....I go for the smuttiest I can find. I got some computer software. She had sent a long a few homemade goodies as well - a laptop sleeve that was sooo beautiful! [gallery]
The day after I got my box I was withdrawn and moody. I couldn't figure out what had me so bummed out! Then I realized I was bummed because I knew there wasn't another box coming. I had been looking forward to my box so much more than what was actually in the box! It felt like there was nothing to keep me going - nothing to look forward to. It just goes to show it's the little things in life. I rallied and I went for a walk out on deck. I did a couple laps around the ship and on one of my last laps I saw a dolphin....and I decided that seeing dolphins was just as cool as getting a box (but I think I was just trying to make myself feel better - I'm already planning my next box).
