the gifts that keep giving back (at least to me)

Does this happen to anyone else?

You think of something PERFECT for someone, which gets you all excited.  You research, you ponder, and you order it online. And you check it off the list. Excitement again (yes, pathetic when it comes to excitement over check lists).  Then you forget about it. Then you get the online notification that it’s been shipped, and you remember it. Excited thrice.

Then you forget about it.

Then the box comes. Oh boy, I forgot about that…how cool is that! Excited, excited again and again (that would be x4).

And then you put it away. And forget about it.

Then unearth it from the pile to wrap it. I haven’t got to this part yet, but the feeling is familiar, so we’ll be excited x5.

And then it goes under the tree, and if Toby behaves himself, it won’t need to be re-wrapped. And you’ll forget about it.

Until it’s unearthed again, and you can’t even remember what it is until they unwrap.

And then a small piece of it peeks through, and you remember.

And it’s just as exciting as it was the first time.

Please tell me I am the not the only one who forgets and then remembers how much fun this is.

    I do this all the time. And I’m not ashamed to say it’s what I love about online shopping – I get to experience the thrill 3, 4, 5 times over!
