What's happenin' out there? I enjoyed that week off SO much, but now I'm firmly back to reality. Been working my butt off, however, I have found a slight solution to combat all the distractions and stress of this office and it's name is Hulu.com. I can't really watch the shows, but I sure can listen to the comedy sitcoms just fine on my earphones while I punch in my never ending stream of data and it helps a LOT... but it's still been a VERY long Wednesday afternoon. I'm on a self declared Diet Pepsi break at the moment ::laughing::
The kitties are doing good - little baby Sophie has grown about 5 times what she was when I found her on my doorstep. I'll take some pics this weekend.. but talk about funny! Oh my gosh, I never knew... and it seems they need each other. If one or the other is separated, they meow till I put them back together. I am very fortunate!
So the boy in Chile is about to be a daddy any day. I sent him a package in October for his birthday and now trying to figure out what to do for Christmas/baby gifts, they don't have much, but would be happy with just about anything. I would just send cash but with the dollar doing so bad - the exchange rate is just horrible - if I sent him $300 he'd only end up with about 200 and I just can't afford to throw away cash like that. Totally sucky. So I sent a package but it cost me $40 bucks to mail a 4 pound package. But now, I kind of wanted to send a little bigger package - for the baby ya know - so much on sale for so little... so I was shopping around to try to find some international shipping company. I checked into FedEx and pretty much had a heart attack. I gave them an estimate that I wanted to mail a 10 lb box, maybe 12x12x15 or so.
And the price for that would be....
$350!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfreaking real. So if any of you all have any decently priced international shipping options, I sure would love to hear about it!!! And now.. back to my exhilarating data entry. Buh-bye.
