IT'S HERE!

    I got home from my "holiday getaway" (I was visiting my family but holiday getaway sounds sooo much more glamorous) and stopped by the office of my apartment to see if I had a package... And the person working in the office checked her "inventory checklist" and said I didn't! πŸ˜•
  2. β€’
    Then I checked my mailbox and found some bills, junk, and a slip from the lovely USPS that said "we left your package at the apartment office on ..."
    Interesting

    I went back to the apartment office with said notification slip and showed to to office worker!
    This is after driving 8 hours!

    Office worker finds the package
    Perhaps she's had a long day??
  5. β€’
    Then I unpack all of my crap including the package

    You guys my package is from Anchorage, Alaska
    (For some reason the map feature wouldn't recognize the city but only the Anchorage Museum- you're welcome)

    I debated waiting until after I showered to open it but I have no will power so...

    Either Alaska smells amazing or there is something wonderfully aromatic in this box ?

    You guys, great things are happening in Alaska - this headline is a bit misleading - this Adult Porn Shop, Sleazy Spenard, is not instantly becoming an indie bookstore but rather, the new owners plan to rent it out to musicians this winter then demolish it and build their new business, The Writers' Block Bookstore and Cafe β„’ - pretty clever

    A book of animal Mandalas to color

    My niece got one of these for Christmas and I was a bit jealous. Also, I've been reading about the use of Mandala (Sanskrit word which means a circle, and metaphorically a universe, environment or community) coloring pages being used in schools as a form of meditation- but I'm using these! Incredibly thoughtful! @crowleypboy
