sad m.diaz

Remember that Easter Basket Giveaway of an estimated $75 internet value that I simply wanted to give away?

Well, I was very proud of that Giveaway and so happy my penpal at the time Salmezan from LoveQuirky won it fair and square.

However, I shipped it out to England on the 10th of April and it cost me $40 whopping bucks to send... I feverishly checked Sal's blog hoping she got the package. Then because of the halt on flights due to volcanic ash it sat somewhere in the world of undelivered mail.

Now on May 5th it finally is deliverable and its being held up in customs somewhere and their asking for another $16. and change!!! What is wrong with this world when free gift can't even be free??

THe undelivered Basket

Its been a tough- super BUSY week of managing the Advanced Placement Studio Art test (tomorrow is Dday), completing freelance plaques for the school and supporting my students through their days, as well as teaching.

I'm exhausted and just as I was hoping to get some good news I learned this.

Well I think its fine time for a good 'ol fashion black & white movie, some ice cream and some dog face-licking!

....yeah... that sucks. But do you know WHERE it is? I would pay for it and shut. If you girls are planning to fight those people, who knows what will happen to the gift.

Marisol, be happy for the carrots! For the sun! For having a great job... Or, maybe, for this beautiful sad picture you posted. : )

I wish you get better soon
All the love,

Oh... can you give me your email? I promise I wont publish it. Or maybe you could send me another email. This time I PROMISE I will keep it!
