A Wasted Day!

Normally I wouldn't post something that is not directly related to handmade or that does not have at least a picture to show, but today I really need to shout this outloud because one of the things I hate is wasted time.

So, this morning I received the final payment from a US customer and rushed out to the customs office to send out the invitations. After standing in line for a while I decide to go in and ask for an export form, only to find out that US Post is not accepting any parcels heavier than 450 grams. "What? Again?" The situation has been the same since Nov. 18 with a 2-day exception. The declared reason is terrorist threat but I seriously doubt that is the real reason and I am going to stop writing now and never mention it again.

Sorry, I had to say this. I just wasted one day and I am now tired and have to repack everything in envelopes and go to the post office first thing in the morning to avoid standing in long holiday lines. I am 7 months pregnant after all, I don't have that much energy.

When have the holidays become more stress than joy?

Ok...since when did Romania become a haven for terrorists...wait, could be a crazed gypsy just waiting to attack!

I am all for safety and homeland security but, sometimes this gets anal. I am sorry you had to go through this...7 months pregnant is no joy!

Hi Meda !!! Sorry to hear about this. Actually, I don't want to sound like the Grinch, but I don't enjoy this season. Too much stress, too many crowds, too hectic, expenses everywhere. Just take care and rest as much as you can it will be over soon :D
