This morning, I woke up to a notification on my tablet telling me that something I had ordered off Amazon (a few weeks ago) was now on its way to my house! Yay!!!
So like any excited person who can’t leave the house would do, I sat by the window to wait (not so patiently) for my package to arrive!
10 stops away..
5 stops away..
2 stops away..
Finally my tablet showed that my stop was the next stop!
Then, after a few minutes of waiting, and waiting, and waiting, my tablet dinged again to let me know that ‘the package had been delivered’.
No trucks drove by.. The blip that showed the truck on the map was no where near me, it was a few streets away.. And instead of a picture showing they had delivered it (like they always did), the words ‘Your package was delivered. It was handed directly to a resident.’ was scrawled across the top of my order form online. Ummm, no. No it wasn’t..
I spent half the morning trying to find a way to get ahold of Amazon to tell them that they must have delivered the package to the wrong house, and when I did get ahold of them I was told by a computerized voice that my package might have been ‘marked’ as delivered when it may still be ‘on its way’. Except, as I said above, they had put that the package had been directly delivered to someone! Apparently nothing can be done until tomorrow, ‘just in case the package was still on its way’, and I am left waiting.. (And waiting.. And waiting..)
After finally calming down a little from this mornings issues, I set my mind on my next task for the day.. I had put together a ‘care-package’ for one of my amazing friends that has to spend her days working at a store during these crappy times. She is a trooper and has to put up with a lot of crap at her job. So I wanted to make her day a little brighter by setting up a ‘girls night in (quarantine edition)’ with candy, face masks, and some fun ideas for games over video chat.
My brother and I took a drive over to her store and sat there waiting until her break so that she could zip out, grab her goody bag, and zip back in.
While my brother and I sat waiting for my friend, I watched the people come in and out of the store, growing more and more annoyed at the people as I watched them. Given the fact that the Governor of Michigan has said multiple times that people should be wearing masks when they go out, I was shocked that only 1 out of every 6 people that walked into the store wore a mask. Not only that, but I seen two girls walk into the store (no mask, no gloves) and walk out carrying only a candy bar each and nothing else! Seriously?! Even I wore a mask, and I wasn’t even going into the store! I was just there to drop something off!
Finally, my friend had came out, got her goody-bag, and went back to work. I had told my friend about the two girls with the candy bars and that I was shocked that they went into the store for two trivial things, to which she replied that people come in there for stupid stuff all the time not even caring that they are supposed to be staying at home..
Really people?! SERIOUSLY?!
Breath Deanna.. Breath..
*Takes deep breath in, then screams into a pillow*
Okay… Because I am all about looking on the bright side of things, instead of focusing on the negative ‘too’ much, I shall also include some highlights of my day as well:
I got to see a good friend of mine today.
I looked in the mailbox to find that my birthday present from my grandmother had finally came (a subscription to ‘Mother Earth News Magazine’).
I got to spend some time chatting and laughing with my brother as we drove into town and back. ❤
And now, I am about to grab a good book and sit on the front porch as it rains. We have only a tiny bit of daylight left, and I plan to use that daylight to my advantage and salvage what is left of my day.
Comment below something that made your day good, even if it was just a hot cup of coffee/tea this morning! Spread some hope and lightheartedness down in the comments today!
As always, remember to smile, count your blessings, and always look on the bright side!
