Bad Secret Pal

Well, I was a little distracted this summer and did not do right by my "pal" in SP8. In fact, I never sent her anything. I intended to, I really did. I bought stuff. I bought boxes. I bought envelopes. I stacked all of this in my craft room and felt guilty about it. When I finally got my groove back--sending the oldest to college was far harder than I expected-- I put together what I considered to be a really good one time gift.

Then it got lost. And stayed lost. I started buying more stuff. I bought several things while I was in NYC, mostly at Knitty City. I had a great time in New York. Hubby had a one hour hearing that lasted two days. I had two days alone on the streets. I actually met one of my invisible friends from a list that I love. I swear, we were so compatible, you would never have believed that we had never met before.

Anyway, I digress.Today-- the box returned! Two numbers in the zip code were transposed. It went out again today, this time with receipt. The irony was that I had put together a couple of things in an evelope, not nearly enough, and addressed it (but had not sent it). I also packed a little something for my SP9 pal-- timely, I might add. I finished my scarf for the International Scarf Exchange and packed it. I am finally on the ball, at least for this week.

I'm so glad it returned! It is so sad when things get lost in the black hole of the postal service. I hope your pal gets it soon and loves everything!

Hi Bev,

Did you receive my last package?

Wow. I can't believe you'd treat your SP8 so poorly. They say better late than never..I guess. I did SP7 and my pal blew me off the way you did to yours and it really broke my heart. I get that people just get busy, believe me, but next time DO NOT PARTICIPATE if you can't keep up your end of the bargain.

Its just not fair.
