The hubster’s birthday is very close to Father’s Day. This makes it easier to get him one big present. We don’t do that every year. But this year, I knew what I wanted to get him!
I did my research online. I had one item picked out! It had excellent ratings! Then I went to buy it. $200 delivery fee, as the only option available was their “white glove” service. Um . . I didn’t want that. So I certainly wasn’t going to pay $200 for it!
I kept looking. I found a good second choice. Once again, excellent reviews! And less than half the price of the first one! Woo Hoo!!
I placed the order. And I was given a two week time frame of when the item might arrive. I checked the shipping information just a couple of days ago to see if their was an update. It said “before July 8″th. Well . . that gave me some time.
I pulled in to my driveway today, and there was the item! Sitting in a cardboard box in the driveway, in the RAIN! AHH! Fortunately it was not wet at all. And when the hubster got home today, he got his present. 🙂 He was surprised! And he loved it!
Tonight I am thankful for surprising the hubster for his birthday and Father’s Day. If you ask him, he says he doesn’t like surprises. But, I think the only surprise he hasn’t liked from me was when I put strawberry jelly on a grilled cheese sandwich – seriously, it’s delicious! 🙂
