My secret footage would have been terrible....

I had a rough day yesterday. I woke up late and needed to rush to get Colin to his Christmas party at school. I didn't have time to shower and threw on a sweatshirt and jeans that are too big for me. I figured I was just taking him to school and I would be right home right? However, I had this nagging feeling about Colin's Christmas gifts that I had ordered at JCPenny's. So I thought I would just run in quickly, pick up his gifts and then go home. Or so I thought. Turns out that guaranteed Christmas delivery does not actually mean by Christmas. There were two items in stock but in another warehouse, therefore holding up the entire order and at the earliest they may arrive on Tuesday. The extra kicker is that since the order is "in progress," they couldn't cancel it. So they will deliver it to the store for me to return it back to the warehouse that held the whole thing up in the first place. So when I think my day couldn't get any better, I run into old friends that I haven't seen in years. Figures. We all had a good laugh and I promised them that I haven't "let myself go!" I guess it couldn't have been worse, it could have been my ex boyfriend, lol.
Rest assured, Christmas has been saved thanks for last minute shopping, NOT thanks to Penny's. Needless to say JCPenny's is now added to the list of places I will never shop even if I was completly broke and that was the only credit card that I owned, lol!
I'm off to put a bike together and finish some gifts. Merry Christmas to everyone from our family to yours!

ROTFL!! I'm so with ya sista! Been there, done that. I get tired of "last minute" shopping because of someone else's mistakes! Glad it worked out for you. Sorry you had to run into old friends in your "Condition!" That, too, is no fun!
Hope you had a wonderful and Merry Christmas!
