Are you kidding me!?!

Todd, Hannah, and Patrick are gone this weekend on a missions trip with our church’s youth group, so I thought this was the perfect time to re-do Hannah’s bedroom as a surprise for her to come home to. She has been wanting to update her room (which has had the same bedding since Andrew slept in her room as a newborn) and found a really cute set that was also cheap–what a deal. I ordered it earlier in the week and it arrived yesterday, and timed out perfectly. She wasn’t at the house when the huge box arrived via the Fed Ex guy and I was feeling pretty good about how well the surprise was going and how easy it was going to be to make a big change for her. That is, until just a few minutes ago when I opened up the set so I could wash the sheets and get started on making the bed, only to find that the package marked twin actually had full size sheets inside. REALLY!?!?!! I’m so frustrated right now!! I can return it to the store, but can’t exchange it there since it’s only available online. I’m trying to breathe deeply and remember that she doesn’t even know what I have planned, but it’s not easy. I’m also trying to use my self control so I don’t have to try and return a shredded set of sheets because I couldn’t get on top of my irritation with other people’s incompetence. UGH. While I thought I was paying a little extra to get faster shipping, in reality, I actually bought myself an errand.

It’s already starting to be OK…. I guess….

    Not that it’s funny, but I had to laugh. I totally know that frustration! The kind you summed up perfectly, where all you can do is, “Are you kidding?!” Mine, however, is usually preceeded by a few unpublishable words.

    I guess it *is* pretty funny….NOW. I figured out a way to use what worked so I could surprise her when she got back. Sheesh. I left out any unpublishable words that may have gone through my head, btw. 😉
