What love looks like
I went to WalMart and bought 15 boxes. I've never bought a shipping box in my life, but wanted to make sure I got the right size. They had to be 60 inches, total. The lady on the phone said 18x18x24 was perfect (for one side). For some reason, that didn't register in my head when we measured in class last week. I got home and looked at the boxes we had packed. These things are 16x14x14. What? That's no where near 60 inches total. They are way under size and are perfectly fine to ship. Anybody need 15 boxes? There's no way I'm taking them back :) I will just have to fill them with more stuff :) I can now pack one more box with quilts because it is too late in the day to drive--traffic is terrible this time of night. So, I will pack one more box with quilts, get them ready and go in the morning. It's a good thing because I tested out my new quilt with a nap this afternoon and it worked great! I dreamed my daughters came home and found quilts all over their beds. I woke up in a panic and sure enough, there are quilts all over my daughter's bed. I need to get it cleaned off before she comes home for Christmas. I delivered 55 quilts this morning to Nurse Family Partnership, but it didn't even make a dent in the pile on my daughter's bed. I have another request for quilts for a local foster group giving quilts for Christmas, but it looks like I had better get busy getting these delivered. They aren't doing anyone any good sitting here.
