I had SUCH a good mail day yesterday. I just HAULED IT IN.
FIRST, I got one of Under Construction's wooden hand-painted postcards, and since I (1) collect postcards and (2) felt like I might DIE if I didn't get one of these and (3) didn't know if I'd get one or not until it arrived, it was a very happy mail day indeed.
SECOND, I got my order of postcards from Lila Ruby King on Etsy. I love Lila Ruby King stuff, and the postcards were even better than I'd hoped. Now how am I going to SEND any of them? THEY ARE TOO SPECIAL TO USE UP.
THIRD, I got a GPS with our tax refund, and it arrived yesterday. I am so happy to have it, or at least I will be after I get over the hurdle of taking it out of the box and setting it up. I wince a little as I tell you this, because it seems like bad form to be announcing an expensive electronic purchase when I read your blogs and know some of you would use that same money for, like, BREAD AND MILK AND ANTIBIOTICS FOR YOUR BABY. But I wanted to tell you about it anyway, first because it was on such a good price, second because I always want to know what someone else buys, and third because this is a post about my happy mail day and this was part of it. A GPS! It's not an electronic device, it's ANTI-ANXIETY MEDICATION.
