A Rather Special Delivery


Over the summer I saw someone walk by with a pair of these fuchsia pink Crocs on and fell in love but I couldn't find them anywhere. They were always sold out. I finally found a pair in my size on Amazon but they wouldn't be here until mid January which was fine by me. 

Yesterday morning when Alexa said they would be arriving I was thrilled. I already had my Jibbitz picked out. BUT....of course there was drama involved.

For some reason it seems that my delivery driver decided to forgo the driveway and drive through our very wet front yard and get good and stuck. The Mister and I went out and did everything we could to get him unstuck with no luck. It was a three hour ordeal while we waited for a tow truck to get him back onto the driveway.

We felt terrible for the poor guy who was beyond apologetic. We assured him there were plenty of ruts in the yard from others who have done the same thing. The grass will grow back, the holes will fill in. It really was no big deal other than the fact that we had been on our way out the door to do some last minute Christmas shopping before that big arctic blast hits us at the end of the week. 

The worst part of it all was that while killing time we almost finished the Santa puzzle which was not making me happy. I had to take it away from The Mister and hide it. It's too soon. We have to have at least one piece to put in on Christmas Eve. 


  1. Oh, what a memorable delivery! You're too funny about your puzzle traditions!

  2. Oh that poor Amazon driver. I once got stuck in a farmer's field while reporting on a farm auction for the newspaper I worked for. I felt like a right idiot.

  3. Yikes! People are always getting stuck on our hill in this snow. That sure looks like on tough puzzle! Merry Christmas!

  4. Love the fuchsia Crocs! It’s hard to slow down on a puzzle when you’re in “the zone.”
