The Missing Package

While P and I were in the for Thanksgiving, I mailed 3 large boxes back to Germany. I received 2 of the 3 boxes before Christmas (full of P's presents). Yesterday, 62 days after I mailed it, I received the last box. One of the reasons it took so long for the box to make it to me was because I paid for it to go Space Available, and not Priority. By doing so, I saved about $20 dollars. Inside the box was a new printer/copier/scanner and a large roasting pan, items I really didn't need in a hurry.

When I picked the package up, the mail clerk told me that the package had arrived in country the day before, on a boat from New Jersey.

My Uncle LeRoy budget class in Heidelberg is FINALLY over, that means no more early morning or late evening autobahn cruising for me. I won't even begin to discuss how much gas I've used over the last two weeks! Every other day, I had to fill up. I've used over 350 liters of gas during this adventure. There are many people who make the commute everyday. By choice.

P still hasn't decided what she wants to do for her birthday party. One thing I know for sure...she WON'T be having her party here at Casa del Caos (House of Chaos). I have a 2 kid rule. No more than 2 people under 4 feet tall in my house at any given time. It's the law. I'd rather take her on a trip, but not to Africa, as she requested. Maybe to the Olympics in Torino, Italy. It's less than 8 hours from us, and there are plenty of tickets still available.
