Mr. Big FINALLY made it to his destination!
Yes, this was about a month ago that I had the Giveaway!
Remember when I told you I had my 'ducks in a row'?
Well, what I didn't tell you was that from time to time, my ducks get shot to "L"!!!
And this time was no exception!
First and foremost let's get this straight...the UPS STORE is NOT UPS!! They don't tell ignorant people like me those kind of things. And I live in a little glass bowl most times where naivety dwells.
I got my quote online from (the regular) UPS which said Mr. Big would cost about $20 to ship...here in Florida...because Random picked me a winner in my State. So, I took him to the UPS STORE thinking in my 'own little world way' that that was UPS. $150. $150 for them to ship Mr. Big. I told them I was quoted $20 online. NOPE. They wouldn't tell me that they were a franchise of UPS. They just told me that it would be $150 for them to ship it. So long , farewell.
Long story short, I was finally educated about the franchise store after I'd made the call to UPS only to find out the UPS was about 45 minutes away from me. My husband goes that way each morning but when I told him it was $20 to ship it, he said he' be going up Debbie's way in a few days and he'd drop it by himself. WEEELLLLLLL, you have to know my husband and procrastination and the fact that he can't always control his 'appointments' when others are involved. One meeting after another was cancelled and rescheduled and finally, after 3 weeks of me stressing over Mr. Big and emailing Debbie, he finally made it.
I LOVE THIS MAN!!
We'll be married 30 years in a week and a half!
I am not able to get out of my house like most of you can. I take care of our mentally handicapped 24 year old daughter 24/7 and it's not easy to get her out. Most days she doesn't want to go anywhere.
SO I will NOT be shipping big items. I will save them for when I do shows.
Can I just give a 'whoop whoop' that Debbie in Florida was picked? I would have eventually made it to UPS to ship it elsewhere but good gravy boats what a saga!
The moral of the story...watch your ducks!
