It's Time to Go Shopping.

We received a check in the mail to replace all of our ruined, stinky, moldy stuff. I am extremely excited. I am going to be doing most of my shopping online, because, let's be honest, shopping with a 9 month old baby and a 2.5 year old does not qualify as anything but insane. The good thing about online shopping is getting packages in the mail. Who doesn't LOVE getting packages in the mail? I think that it is one of the best things in the world. In fact, my second favorite day of the week (Thursday) is based on the mail day in one of the places I lived as a teenager. (My first favorite day of the week is Tuesday which was the day I was born, in case you were wondering.) Oh, the excitement. Oh the joy. Oh the pretty things that I want to buy...

Packages ARE fun! I'm glad you got some compensation for the mold. I kept thinking about your story during our pack-out.

Oooo! Shopping to replace damaged items - that's the best kind of shopping there is, for it is pure shopping with no guilt at all!

But you simply must tell us what you're buying.

I've looked through last month's posts about the damaged/black mold items of yours but I'm not smart enough to figure out the story about what actually *happened.*

Do you mind sharing the story? What happened- what went wrong - and how you got from that point to the point where you now have a check in your hands?

If you'd rather not talk about it - that's cool - just delete this comment and we'll all act like I never asked! No biggie!

yes, I too would like to hear lessons learned. After all, your shipment was not moving very far....was there something you could have done differently in preparing for packout? I've seen people recommend keeping shoes & leather purses in pillowcases, shoeboxes etc to keep them from sticking together..anyway I'd love to hear any advice.
And have fun shopping!!

yeah for shopping! However it's done, that's exciting! And I agree - online is way more fun than with two kids. Hope you find some good stuff.
And Thursday is my favorite day for the same reason that you're a fan.
