First, I must say UPS amazes me. Remember all that stuff I ordered on Amazon for my bathroom and the home improvement stuff? Well, the holidays really slowed things down. I’ve been tracking every day. I have an obsession with tracking. Like Arthur Weasley’s obsession with everything muggle. I even “tracked” Cortney and her cross country road trips, asking her to have her friend and then mom sign upon arrival. I am the supreme dork of dorks haha! But anyway. So finally the other day my stuff was in Phoenix. Yay! Then it all sat in Phoenix. Still in Phoenix this morning. But, sometimes it’s like they forget some steps in the tracking process, like the arrival scan here. So I checked again and bam, all of it is out for delivery, all with the time of 8:50. All from different sellers, all from different states. I have to wonder if there is some kind of alert like, Ro is getting a ton of stuff so lets hold it all in Phoenix so it gets to her at the same time. I mean, I had to go back and double check the times and sure enough, they are all 8:50. One of the packages for some reason didn’t give tracking info to Amazon, so I’ve been tracking it at UPS, just leaving the window open and reloading. Wow. Ok, seriously. Why does this fascinate me? I worked for UPS years ago. I know how it all works. I don’t remember learning about some cool alert system to put different packages from different states into one truck. That’s just cool. Ok, what is wrong with me hahaha! I’ve got my door propped open a bit so I can hear the truck. But it’s a lil chilly out. The UPS drivers usually show up here between 11 and 2 or so. Holy cow I’m gonna get a bunch of stuff all at once! A bathroom trashcan with a lid, a new set of purple and green towels, from different sellers, purple shower curtain hooks, from a different seller, and my bed set, from a different seller. It’s like my birthday and Christmas all over again! Hehehe!! Ok, I’m serously done with the UPS stuff, promise. Unless the shipment gets here before I’ve posted haha!!
Yesterday Kevin picked me up for the meeting in a fit of oh my God you won’t believe this. He stopped at the corner store, where a woman works who found out Kevin is sober and she told him she’s sober so now when he goes there they chat. So yesterday he’s like, I can’t stay, I’m picking my friend Ro up, I gotta go. She’s like, Ro? Yeah. Is she blind? Yeah. Oh my God, Ro saved my life. She spoke at the treatment center I was at, and when she said she wouldn’t trade her sobriety for her eyesight, it changed my life. I’ve been sober ever since and I got my children back. Wow. Wow wow wow. That right there just made going blind totally worth it. Wow. So, we’re gonna try and go see her at work today. I remember when I met the woman who changed my life and it was the best thing I ever got to do. I was star struck by this sober woman, who’s story I heard on a cd, and then she spoke at a conference I was at, and I got to meet her and thank her. I’m in awe that I am that woman for this woman at the corner store. Wow. The meeting was good, and I found out who’s been talking, which I already knew deep down. If I get the chance, I’m going to mention it to her. Nicely of course. But I think it deserves mentioning.
At the meeting, the topic was the “magic magnifying mind” and I got called on to share. So I said how I’m really excited to be going away to get my guide dog, and someone said, what did she say, duck? Laughs all around hahaha. Guide duck! So I continued the story and mentioned how I’m so excited to get my guide dog but I keep focusing on the laptop, because my magic magnifying mind likes to focus on the negative. Lisa flew on New Year’s Day and brought her laptop carry on, so it should be fine. So I’ll be able to bring my laptop when I go get my guide duck.
I posted that on facebook and people started talking about how a duck could be a guide and someone said a whole flock of ducks and I said we’ll need to find some duckling raisers hahaha!!
Ok, that’s enough outta me. Gonna edit and wait for my packages and try not to talk the UPS driver’s ear off about my fascination hahaha!!
Um, 42 days? I’m losing count, suppose I should have checked yesterday’s blog. Quack!
Oh, ps, Carol is coming back today!!!!! Carol and Carin back and life is complete again.
